Just inside the bean tray there’s a grinder setting with 7 adjustable settings.
A milk frother is located on the front right hand side of the machine. I found this a little hit and miss. It is possible to get the milk frothed but it takes a bit of patience. Hot water can also be dispensed by switching the steam dial down.
There’s a decent size water container at the side of the unit which means you’re not having to stop and fill all the time.
There’s enough settings and controls available that make the de’longhi allow for enough control of the various coffee styles, whilst at the same time not looking like a nasa control system. There’s essentially 2 main controls; 1 for coffee strength and 1 for the size of the coffee (I have both whacked up to max).
