OverviewBack to Top
As DeLonghi’s top super automatic espresso machine, the Gran Dama is designed to create an elegant coffee experience for high-end home kitchens. Housed entirely in sleek stainless steel and featuring a bright blue LCD screen, the Gran Dama has a stunning look to go with a long list of features. Its double boiler system eliminates wait time between brewing and steaming, and the stainless steel-lined brew boiler provides superior durability. With fully programmable brewing controls and an automatic frothing system, the Gran Dama is perfect for entertaining. It also includes DeLonghi’s professional quality, low-pitch conical burr grinder to deliver fast, consistent grinds without excessive noise that would disturb you or your guests.
The push-button brewing system gives you 4 different cup sizes for espresso, all of which are programmable. The Gran Dama also features 3 programmable buttons for lattes, cappuccinos and Italian macchiatos, giving you full control over milk and coffee quantities, and allowing you to create your favorite drinks with 1 touch. Along with 7 grind settings, temperature control, a bypass doser and a 2-step pre-infusion system, the Gran Dama can create the perfect cup of espresso to match your unique taste.
Perhaps the most unique feature about the Gran Dama is its built-in frothing system, which not only froths and steams automatically, it is also self cleaning—a rare feature on a home machine. The Gran Dama prepares specialty drinks from start to finish, and then it will clean the patented milk system automatically when you press the “Clean” button. The milk container itself is detachable, so it can easily be placed in the refrigerator or washed in the dishwasher. With customized brewing settings and one-touch cappuccinos, lattes and Italian macchiatos, the Gran Dama is a state-of-the art espresso center.

Features and Benefits: Coffee
Full-service Espresso Center
With its revolutionary self-cleaning milk system, the Delonghi Gran Dama 6600 can make café-quality drinks with ease. The Gran Dama has an automatic frother that can froth and steam your milk as it brews, allowing you to create sensational cappuccinos and lattes without delay. With 4 programmable buttons for espresso, and 3 programmable buttons for milk-based drinks, the Gran Dama can automatically create a full menu of drinks for you and your guests.
The Gran Dama is designed for flexibility, with complete programmability for each type of drink. The bright blue LCD display guides you through every stage of brewing, programming and cleaning, so it’s easy to customize the Gran Dama to match your lifestyle. You can set the coffee volume for each of the espresso buttons, as well as milk and coffee volumes for each of the specialty drink buttons. You can also use the programming button directly beneath the LCD, marked “P,” to adjust the temperature of your coffee, automatic on/off times, set the clock and to access cleaning features. Whether you want to customize everything about your coffee, or enjoy the optimized presets that come with the machine, the Gran Dama’s LCD makes it easy to navigate all aspects of programming. Throughout every stage of operation, the LCD will always keep you informed with helpful, easy-to-read words.
Professional-quality Burr Grinder
With the DeLonghi Gran Dama 6600's low-pitch, heavy-duty burr grinder, you get plenty of grinding power at lower noise levels. Using the adjustable knob inside of the 7 oz bean hopper, you can choose from 7 different settings to fine-tune your grind. Turn the knob to the left to get a finer grind for a creamier, rich espresso, or to the right to get a coarser grind for an espresso that’s not quite as strong.
2-step Pre-infusion System
DeLonghi's 2-step pre-infusion cycle pre-moistens coffee grounds automatically before you brew. Thanks to the 6600's professional-quality brewing system, you can be sure that you get a great extraction with thick, rich crema topping every shot.
The Gran Dama features a built-in bypass doser for those times when you or your guests prefer something other than what's in your bean hopper. Just press the scoop icon on the control panel and scroll through the options until you see "Ready Pre-ground coffee" on the LCD. Then, flip open the small panel on the top of your machine and add a scoopful of pre-ground. Press either of the single cup buttons (short or long) and the Gran Dama will brew using the pre-ground coffee.
The DeLonghi Gran Dama 6600 has a built-in warming plate located on top of the machine to keep your coffee cups at an ideal temperature. Thanks to this warming plate, your coffee will maintain its aroma and taste because it is poured right into a pre-heated cup.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Automatic Frothing System
The Gran Dama has an integrated milk system to create lattes, cappuccinos and Italian macchiatos automatically. The milk system features a detachable 25 oz milk container that snaps into place next to the machine’s coffee dispenser. When you choose one of the 3 specialty drink buttons, the Gran Dama will brew coffee, froth and/or steam milk, and pour it directly into your waiting cup. The milk system’s built-in dispensing spout is designed to fill your cup while it’s under the coffee spout, so your cup never has to move. The milk system has a 2-position switch on the front to change the steam flow for each type of drink, and you can even adjust milk and coffee quantities to personalize every drink just for you.
If automatic lattes, cappuccinos and Italian macchiatos weren’t enough, the Gran Dama goes a step further with a unique self-cleaning function built right in. After you’re done frothing and steaming, just press and hold the “Clean” button on the front of the milk system and the machine will automatically flush out the milk dispensing spout with fresh, hot water. The cleaning cycle won’t interfere with the milk in the pitcher, and you can store it in the fridge for later use. For added convenience, the entire milk system is dishwasher-safe so you won’t have to worry about constantly scrubbing each piece in the sink. Just put the components in the dishwasher regularly to keep your milk system clean.
Attachable Hot Water Spout
The Gran Dama’s detachable milk system can be replaced by an included hot water dispenser. This stainless steel spout snaps into place without any tools, so you can have hot water for tea, hot chocolate and café americanos. Just attach the spout and press the second button from the right, directly below the LCD to instantly dispense hot water. Like all of the Gran Dama’s drink buttons, you can program the quantity of your hot water to suit your needs.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other
Removable Water Reservoir
The DeLonghi Gran Dama 6600 has a large capacity, 60 oz water reservoir - enough to make about 30 espressos before refilling. This water tank has an easy-to-read water level indicator and is removable for convenient filling and cleaning.
The Gran Dama has a built-in rinse cycle, which automatically runs hot water through the machine upon start up and before it shuts down. This will remove coffee residue that can keep your machine from performing at its best. In addition, you can use the rinse button, which is the second button from the left directly under the LCD, to run a rinse cycle anytime to clean, or to pre-heat the brewing components. All of the Gran Dama’s cleaning cycles are automated, and the LCD will alert you when care is needed. There is no guesswork when it comes to descaling the machine, as the LCD will walk you through the entire process.
Removable Brew Group
The removable brew group makes it a snap to clean and maintain your DeLonghi Gran Dama 6600. Simply open the access door behind the drip tray, grasp the two red release buttons and remove the group for easy rinsing and/or cleaning.
Removable Dump Box and Drip Tray
The internal dump box and drip tray are easily accessible. The LCD will alert you when either of these need to be emptied, so you don’t have to count coffee cups yourself. Thanks to the intuitive alert system on the Gran Dama, you’ll always know when your machine needs attention, so you can relax and enjoy your espresso.
