The redesigned Delonghi Magnifica 3500 improves upon the original model with the addition of a stainless steel-lined brew boiler for increased durability. Paired with a separate boiler for steaming and frothing, there is no longer any wait time between brewing and steaming. The redesigned model also features an improved low-pitch conical burr grinder, and takes versatility to a higher level with a digital display and built-in automatic frother. With fully programmable brewing settings and one-touch cappuccinos and lattes, the Magnifica 3500 lets you customize your espresso drinks to accommodate a variety of tastes. The 3500 features a smoked silver exterior and stainless steel accents, so not only does it brew for perfection, it also looks great in the kitchen.

The Magnifica’s push-button brewing system lets you decide whether to brew 1 or 2 cups, and since you can select to brew from ½ oz to 6 oz for each cup, you can make up to 12 oz of delicious coffee in just 1 step. The internal burr-grinder on the DeLonghi Magnifica 3500 also allows you to choose from 10 different fineness settings so you will brew delicious-tasting espresso every time. This machine’s 2-step pre-infusion system preserves full coffee flavor, and its simple frothing system whips up velvety, creamy cappuccinos with ease.

The Magnifica 3500 is also equipped with a coffee bean hopper that holds up to 7 oz and is easy to load. This DeLonghi super automatic comes with an attachable hot water nozzle, which can be attached in place of the automatic frother. The 3500 also has a top-loading bypass doser to make entertaining a breeze when your guests prefer a decaffeinated espresso or gourmet preground coffee. Plus, with its instant hot water dispenser, the Magnifica 3500 will cater to a crowd that prefers tea, hot chocolate or café Americanos.

Thanks to DeLonghi’s uniquely designed, removable brewing system, the Magnifica 3500 makes cleaning and maintenance fast and convenient.

The DeLonghi Magnifica 3500 comes complete with its own coffee scoop, water hardness test kit, grinder cleaning brush and detailed instruction manual.

Features and Benefits: Coffee

Automatic Coffee Center

This DeLonghi super automatic gives you the freedom and flexibility to brew more than just espresso. The Magnifica 3500 has an automatic frother that can whip plain old milk into sensational cappuccinos and lattes at the press of a button. The Magnifica 3500 also has an instant hot water dispenser to use when your visitors prefer tea, hot chocolate or café Americanos. A preheat function also guarantees that this handy hot water dispenser is always ready to deliver.

Digital Programming

With the Magnifica 3500, the ability to choose the amount of coffee you wish to brew, as well as its strength, is at your fingertips. Just enter your preferences using the convenient digital controls and the DeLonghi Magnifica 3500 snaps into motion to grind, tamp and brew your coffee. You can also adjust your machine to automatically start and stop so it can work around your schedule. All of the 3500’s functions will be shown on the built-in digital display panel as you make your choices, so you’ll always be informed during the brewing, steaming/frothing and cleaning processes.

Professional Burr Grinder

With the Magnifica 3500’s low-pitch, professional burr grinder, you can fine-tune the coarseness of your grind at the turn of a dial. One click to the left will slow the delivery and create a finer grind for a creamier, rich espresso, while one click to the right will speed up the entire process for an espresso that’s not quite as strong.

Coffee Pre-Infusion

The special pre-infusion cycle in the DeLonghi Magnifica pre-moistens coffee grounds automatically. This process locks in maximum flavor extraction and ensures that this machine produces golden crema topping- the essential ingredient of true espresso.

Bypass Doser

With the touch of a button, you can pour in a scoop of preground coffee to prepare a decaffeinated drink at the request of your guests. This highly desirable option makes the Magnifica a unique, fully loaded machine for just about any home environment.

Automatic Cup Warmer

The DeLonghi Magnifica 3500 has a built-in warming plate that will keep your coffee cups at an ideal temperature. Thanks to this warming plate, located on top of the machine, your coffee will maintain its aroma and taste because it is poured right into a warm cup.

Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water

Patented Cappuccino System

The DeLonghi Magnifica has a hands-free design that steams and froths milk for cappuccinos, lattes and other hot drinks. The milk travels seamlessly from the attached milk container into the Magnifica 3500, where it is frothed or steamed. The 3500 even dispenses the finished product at the coffee dispenser, so you can make a milk and coffee drink from start to finish without ever moving your cup. This system is so convenient that it’s like having a barista at your beck and call.

Attachable Hot Water Nozzle

The Magnifica’s detachable milk container can be replaced by an included hot water nozzle. This stainless steel nozzle into place without any tools, so you can have hot water at any time for tea, hot chocolate or soup.

Hot Water Dispenser

The Magnifica 3500 instantly dispenses hot water for tea, hot chocolate and café Americanos. This feature gives you the option of pleasing a crowd no matter what their preference is.

Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other

Water Reservoir

The Magnifica 3500’s spacious reservoir holds 60 oz of water- enough to make 30 espressos. This water tank has an easy-to-read water level indicator and is removable so it is convenient for filling and cleaning.

Hassle-free Cleaning

The Magnifica 3500 has a built-in rinse cycle which automatically releases hot water into the machine after coffee is brewed, removing the residue that can keep your machine from performing at its best. There is also no guesswork when it comes to deciding when to decalcify the machine. An automatic decalcification indicator light will serve as a reminder, and the 3500’s digital display panel will walk you through the entire process.

Removable Brew Group

The removable brew group makes it a snap to clean and maintain your DeLonghi Magnifica 3500. 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. A red indicator light lets you know when the tray needs to be emptied, and another front light flashes when it is time to empty the 3500’s dump box.
