Why use Drip Coffee Machines?
The drip coffee system is simple but has a lot to offer and at the same time, it is very effective to use. The water is heated before reaching through the coffee filter, where the aroma, oils, and caffeine are absorbed from the coarsely ground coffee. Despite its light taste, it still contains more caffeine than a traditional espresso, as the water remains in contact with the grounds for longer.
Their coffee machines are simple to use and designed with glass or thermal carafes and non-stick warming plates to maintain the warm temperature after the brewing process is completed. The maintenance is so simple, with full frontal access for cleaning, refilling water and changing the coffee filter. All of the coffee machines are user-friendly, so that brewing perfect coffee is a convenient, stress-free experience.
With their easy-to-use technology and elegant designs that produce fresh and aromatic coffee, there’s no doubt that Delonghi will satisfy our craving for coffees.
Highlighted Features and Benefits
A Reliable Combo Machine
The BCO430 combination coffee machine has a simple look, measuring of 12.79 inches high by 11.02 wide 14.52 deep. That means, this machine will take occupied the space on your kitchen countertop, however, this can be easily fit under a cabinet.
It is not that attractive because the makers of this machine were more concerned about the function than the looks, having a black and silver casing and shiny buttons is already pleasing to the eyes.
The reason why this combo unit works so well because of its two different machines in a single case. It comes with a coffee machine and espresso maker with dedicated water bins and power buttons.
We found the controls to be very intuitive. It will take you to set up the clock in just a minute and to set up the auto feature was so quick. Since this machine is easy to use, There no need to refer to the manual for further instructions.
Those who like to have a stronger cup of coffee can select the 1 to 4 button on the drip coffee settings. This feature initiates a slightly unusual brewing process in which the machine saturates the grounds to extract the best flavor from the coffee beans. Its 1 to 4 feature is only for making a half pot of coffee and this can take over six minutes to finished.
Since it has an espresso maker it can easily make two espressos in one shot, just use the included two-cup espresso coffee filter instead of the option for one cup or one pod. Yes, you can use an easy serve espresso (E.S.E.). The E.S.E. pods are those small, self-contained filter packets filled with espresso grounds.
Easy Milk Frothing System
This feature will allow you to practice your skills. It has manual frother mixer for frothing or steaming the milk, rather than a machine with some kind of auto-frothing system. The BC 0430 manual frothing puts you in full control of the amount of foam and steamed milk you make using the frothing wand.
To use this feature, simply turn the control knob to steam, insert the wand into the milk and froth. Easy right?
There is a steam dial on the side of the machine to control the steaming of the milk. In our tests, it took about two and a half minutes before the green light appeared on the front of the unit, this will let you know that it’s ready to use.
Using a frothing wand well takes time and practice. If your first few milk-based drinks don’t turn out quite don’t be discouraged. Just keep practicing, and you’ll be a master of your own to perfectly crown the top of your coffee.
A Very Useful Cup Warming Tray
Anyone who is new to the coffee world, you may not get the value of the cup warming tray, but trust us. It matters more than you might think.
The reason why is that most special coffee drinks were intended to be enjoyed at a lower temperature than American coffee drinkers are used to. This is particularly for a milk-based drink because milk has to be steamed at a moderate temperature, and your finished product loses heat when the milk and coffee combined.
Pouring a coffee into a cold cup will lose even more heat. By pre-warm the cup on the cup warming tray will solve the problem and this will preserve the heat in your drink.
The DeLonghi machine comes with a one-year warranty.

It is hard to find a combo unit that works so well and handles both functions with finesse. We were fascinated by how intuitive it was to use. At the same time, it also creates a rich and good pot of coffee and creamy froth for cappuccino lattes.
We have used and tested different machines, but this one seems to get work everything right from the start and we will positively recommend this product to every coffee or espresso lovers out there.
