The price tag of the DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino Top is far from cheap. However, its performance is already akin to the “holy grail” of coffeemakers for some. Not only is its performance top-end, the entire unit is easy to maintain and comes as a versatile device with only one real drawback besides its deafening initial cost – its slow start-up time.
The DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino Top Can Easily Beat Out the Competition
When it comes to its design, the DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino Top immediately delivers an imposing presence right out of the box. Even though it is not terribly wide, it is tall and deep. Therefore, it is best suited to be placed inside open-plan kitchens as it is less likely to dominate smaller countertops.
But there’s more to the Eletta than just an imposing presence as this is an 11-kilogram giant of a coffeemaker. But even though it weighs heavy, is taller and deeper than most coffee machines in the market, the layout of its controls are still quite neat.
The right side of the lower part is a 1.8-liter reservoir that can be pulled out. This container has an obvious level from the side, but invisible from the front. For the device’s top, there is a bean intake that can contain up to 400-grams of your favorite coffee beans. It has a rubber-sealed top in order to remain the freshness within.
Speaking of the bean intake, once you take a gander at it you will immediately see a neat extra right next to it – a small chute for pre-ground coffee. Therefore, it adds versatility and flexibility for coffee enthusiasts to create their favorite coffee beverages.
Another attraction worth noting is its Crema system, which is provided by the 0.6-liter milk reservoir. Said milk container will plug into the left side of the machine. For individuals that are more used to simpler machines, this reservoir takes the place of the milk frother/steam outlet. It is the key to providing the one-button flat white experience.
Right from the onset, this particular coffeemaker produces excellent coffee beverages. There is no plastic-like taste which can be apparent from cheaper models. There is also a nice layer of crema found on top of the espressos and on short coffees. But what really sets its performance apart from the rest is its excellent milk treatments.
Even though it may not be cheap, the DeLonghi Eletta Cappuccino Top can certainly provide great coffee drinks. It can produce excellently-made flat whites with very minimal effort on your part. Plus, it is easy to maintain.
