Compact, yet chalk full of advanced features, the Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL is a versatile super-automatic espresso machine that can brew toe-to-toe with just about anything on the market. This one-stop beverage center features an integrated grinder, one-touch drink options and automated frothing system to make preparing fresh beverages quick and simple. The insightful Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL is also equipped with a height-adjustable drink dispenser and dedicated cup warmer for your convenience.


Energy Saving Switch and Compact Footprint

This machine has been designed to minimize its physical as well as environmental footprint. Measuring just 23”Wx43”Dx33.8”H and weighing a miniscule 9 pounds, the Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL is one of the smallest super-automatic espresso machines on the market. Along with being space-efficient, this Delonghi model is also equipped with an environmentally friendly Energy Saving Switch to help you cut down on energy use by as much as 77%. The Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL can be programmed to automatically shut off after 1-3 hours of inactivity.

Grinder, Bean Hopper and Bypass Doser

The Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL features a built-in, professional grade conical burr grinder with 13 grind adjustments. It is equipped with noise-reduction technology for low-pitch, quiet operation. This super-automatic espresso machine uses a patented “Direct-to-Brew” System that grinds beans just prior to brewing for fresh beverages. The grinder is accompanied by a 5.3-ounce bean hopper with a secure aroma-saving lid to allow you to safely store your beans. There is also a bypass doser to accommodate pre-ground coffee.

Brewing Benefits

This one-touch espresso machine maintains proper brewing temperature with a convenient instant re-heat function. It has a double boiler to allow you to perform back-to back brewing and frothing without any down time. There are five programmable coffee strength settings and 4 drink volume options for customized beverages.

Steaming and Frothing

The Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL has a fully automated milk system. It comes with a removable milk container that can be detached from the machine and stored in the refrigerator until you’re ready to prepare a beverage. If you want to make a cappuccino or latte, simply attach the milk tank to the front of the machine and make your beverage selection. The Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL will automatically steam or froth the milk and dispense it directly into your cup. This user-friendly system has a dedicated clean button to let you rinse milk components to remove residue and prevent clogs.

Water Features

A generous 60-ounce removable water reservoir keeps you ready to brew. Using tap water is never an issue, as the Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL has a built-in water filtration system to remove minerals and impurities from tap water for better tasting drinks and reduced scale buildup. Water hardness levels can also be programmed into the machine to allow it to better adapt to water conditions in your area.

Additional Features

This innovative machine has a removable drip tray with a dedicated alert that will notify you when it is full and needs to be emptied. There is also a blue, two-line display screen with crisp icons for quick reference. A cup warmer, located on the top of the machine, lets you prep cups prior to brewing to prevent heat loss. The attractive Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL has a modern silver finish with black accents and cup illumination.

krista asked:

Regarding the Delonghi Magnifica S ECAM 23450 SL. I have an older style magnifica and it is very loud. 

Answer by Erik:

Just like any machine that grinds beans there will be some noise associated with drink production but certainly no more or less than any other machine.  They are all right around the same place as far as noise level is concerned.

I just received my machine yesterday and it seems it wont fit my favorite cups.  I use to- go cups about the size of a starbucks grande cup.  Help!

Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:


I am very familiar with your machine, the adjustment for this machine  will only fit a cup size of 4.75 inches tall.  The only way around this is by brewing into pitcher and then adding to your main drinking cup.

Answer by Lacy McKinlay Pearson:

hmmm. This may be a deal breaker for me.  I am frustrated that I spent over 1200 on a machine that doesn't work with the cups I use!  I guess this is my fault for not reading closer.  What machine would you recommend?


Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:



Before a recommend a machine, is the one touch feature something that you really want on the machine?  Also,  with regards to cup clearance do you need it for both the milk beverages and coffee options or just the coffee option?

Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:

Answer by Lacy McKinlay Pearson:

Both, and yes, I really like the one touch option.  If there is a good machine that you do the espresso and milk separately, I wouldn't mind

Answer by ShaneAncefsky-Sales:


I would actually take a look at the Gaggia Platinum Swing Up.  It will have plenty of cup height for espresso or coffee.  Now this isn't a full one touch for the milk option, it does however have a milk island which will out froth your milk for you, mind you it will also get it hotter then a one touch machine,  all you will need to do is combine at the end and have a great beverage!

Answer by Lacy McKinlay Pearson:

The specs on the Gaggia platinum swing up saw one say it has a cup height maximum of 4.5 inches and the Delonghi is 4.7.  How would this fit my cups better?

Answer by Lacy McKinlay Pearson:

4.6 on the Gaggia, sorry

bernie asked:

what settings do you use for doing lattes with this machine? How can I get more coffee, 8 oz, from the preset settings?

Answer by techkathy:

Bernie - click on this link to download a manual directly from DeLonghi (page 12) : http://www.delonghi.com/us_en/products/ecam-23450sl/

Customizing the “my coffee” quantity
The appliance is set by default to automatically deliver 1 fl oz./ 30 ml of “my coffee”.

To modify this quantity, proceed as follows:
1. Place a cup under the coffee spouts (fig. 11).
2. Turn the selection knob until “MY COFFEE” is displayed.
3. Keep the button (fig. 8) pressed until the message “1 MY COFFEE Program quantity” is displayed and coffee delivery begins. Release the button.
4. As soon as the coffee in the cup reaches the required level, press the button (fig. 8)again.
The quantity of coffee in the cup has now been programmed.

Answer by bernie:

Hi techkathy

I have done some checking and your method will only get to a maximum of 6 oz's. However, if you select the 2 cup mode the machine appears to double only the liquid. It does not grind any additional coffee. So if you selct any of the presets buttons the default liquid value gets multiplied by two. So in my instance I selct the extra long coffee, which has a default value of 4 oz and then by pressing the 2 cups button I get a 8 oz coffee.

thank you for your help.

Phil asked:

Can I make macchiatto's with this machine? It can obviously make caps and lattes automatically but I'm wondering if it can make macchiattos too?

Answer by A:

Phil: By definition, a Macchiato (Marked Espresso) is Espresso with a small amount of steamed/frothed milk. Any super automatic machine is capable of doing such, however the ECAM23450 does not have a dedicated button to do so. If you are looking for a machine that gives a quality Macchiato with the press of a button, then the Gaggia Accademia is a great choice. It comes with a button pre-programmed for just what you are looking for. Below are links to a video of Darren making a Caramel Macchiato and the link to the Gaggia Accademia as well.
