Tast is great, coffee grind container and tank are ok
20 October 2014
Summary: Too nuisy. Some simple noise absorbing material well placed would make a huge difference. Commonly known to leak. Mine started after 6 years, cause by a worn o'ring at the heating tank. Problem is the parts diagram doesn't show it and hekp centers can't do anything for you. Miserable service. I fixed mine by adding a second tiner o'ring. Coffe temperature is too cold for many.Tast is great, coffee grind container and tank are ok.
Well shi*. I was donated/dumped a "dead" DeLonghi Magnifica EAM 3400...

Summary: They said to me that the machine was slow, and that the coffee was barely hot and it was generally very slow. They told me to help them trash it. Right......... I opened it, researched it and cleaned it's "heater unit" (filled with scale/lime stone). After the love, the machine is providing super tasty coffee, hot, quick, and in ridiculously convenient manner possible!!* Thanks. . :-) These machines are not meant to be thrown away.
Summary: I love DeLonghi products & have had a 3200 for years. When it tired out on me, I looked on eBay for one like it. The 3400 is almost identical so, of course, I bought it & glad I did. It's very user friendly. My husband had a general question for their service department when my 3200 had trouble, and they were very friendly & helpful.
DeLonghi Magnifica EAM 3400 Super Automatic Espresso Machine
6 December 2013
Summary: I bought my Magnifica at Starbucks like a lot of people here. I was lucky enough to get it when Starbucks was clearing them out so I only paid $449.99 - as far as I'm concerned an incredible deal for a brand new $1,200.00 unit. I've owned this machine for about 6-7 years now and I am completely satisfied with it.
Summary: We've been using this machine for five years now and still going strong. It was brought to Kyrgyzstan where we work and it keeps on working, even with frequent power outages, brownouts, and power spikes. It has been used in a couple of office settings plus at home. We love it. I gave it four stars instead of five because I'd like it to have a larger water tank, a larger grounds container, and the steam doesn't get quite as hot as I think it should.
Summary: Love this machine- have one at home, also purchased on Ebay several years ago. For a fully automated machine, this is a great one. The size of the disposal and the water are limited, 7 double espressos to empty for the disposal. However, the positive tradeoff is counterspace. Easy to clean, easy to fill, easy to use.
This machine is Awesome, Great value for the money !

Summary: This is an excellent Machine if you are looking for a resolution to your High costs of going to Starbucks for a nice Coffee treat. You can change the grind settings to your desired taste. As well as froth your milk to your liking. I bought this product because I frequently have people staying at my house, and it can be rather expensive to go out and buy Starbucks for everyone let alone for yourself on a daily basis.
Summary: This is my second super automatic espresso machine. My first machine is the EAM3200, which is a single boiler machine, and you have to wait between making espresso and steaming for the machine to heat up, and then wait again after steaming for the machine to cool down before brewing another espresso. This ESM3400 has no waiting between brewing and steaming. I did notice that the EAM3200 would make a stiffer froth with finer bubbles.
Summary: I have a Delonghi Magnifica EAM 3400 that I have been using for about 3 years and it serves its purpose, nothing spectacular. It does & has always leaked coffee grounds into the inside of the machine but I felt that was minor, so I have lived with it. The o rings went out within the 1st year so be sure to keep those on hand because you will need them.
