Is the DeLonghi EC860 your only machine with the milk functions? I really enjoyed the Capresso EspressoPRO I got from you back in the day before It stopped working after a few years.

mjackson ♦ They all can steam milk, all the super autos . You can even get a one touch that adds milk and coffee into a cup at the touch of a button. Please giev us a call as we have lots of options.

In terms of shot quality, how will this compare to the Gaggia Classic? Also, I'm really looking for a durable machine as I can't afford to have something break on me in a year or two. Do you think this DeLonghi will last for a long time (and if not, why?) Thanks.

mjackson ♦ Phil,
I really like the Gaggia Classic. We have customers call all the time that have had the machine for 15 years or more. It is durable and simple. The Delonghi does have the cool milk thing and I think that is handy but does not offer the control over the milk like the Gaggia does. I would get tehta machien and spend the extra on a good grinder like the Gaggia MDF in the end you will be happier.

Mr. Rosso Can you explain what you mean by "milk options" on your comment back to Mr. Klutsein.

Mike Russo ♦ Eileen...Thank you for your interest in the Delonghi EC860. A milk option for an espresso machine will froth or steam milk automatically for you. Thanks.

Is there a difference in brew quality of coffee between this machine and the Gran Dama 6600? What makes the 6600 a much more expensive machine?

mjackson ♦ Eileen,
They are two different types of machines. One is a super auto, that does everything for you with a touch of a button. So it certainly is much more convenient. The EC680 requires you grind on your own and load coffee into the machine. It does some of the milk function for you. So the extra cost is really for your convenience. So the expense lies in the automation. The EC680 requires you do much more work.

Mike Russo ♦ Daniel...Thank you for your interest in the Delonghi EC860 Espresso Machine. We ship orders in 24 to 48 hours. I have had the pleasure of using the Delonghi EC860 Espresso Machine when we first got it in. I really believe that Delonghi has put a lot of time and thought into this machine. I would really call this machine a Hybrid Semi Automatic due to the milk option. Thanks.

Hello - I am an avid latte fan. Is this the best machine in this price range? I really like the separate milk container. I've also been looking at the Gaggia Unica. Thanks!

Mike Russo ♦ Lani...Thank you for your interest in both the Delonghi EC860 Espresso Machine and the Gaggia Unica. The Delonghli is a Semi automatic espresso machine with a automatic milk option, and is a great machine at for the price. The Unica is a Super Automatic espresso machine with no milk automatic milk option, and is at a great price. Thanks.

mjackson ♦ Daniel,

It is an interesting machine. It does the milk automatically and also has a portafilter. It is kind of a hybrid. I like the Gaggias better as you will be able to have more control over your final product. I also think it will prove to be more durable as well. The dimensions are 12 x 10 x 11.5 h x w x d. I hope that helps.
