DeLonghi Pump Espresso Machine ECP 3420
The DeLonghi Pump Espresso Machine, ECP 3420, is designed for new baristas with a pressurized portafilter and easy to use steam wand that makes brewing delicious espresso drinks easier than ever before.The ECP 3420 brews using a 15 bar pump and a 1100 watt stainless steel boiler. To simplify the espresso brewing process, the machine uses a pressurized portafilter and includes three different filter baskets for single shot, double shot, and E.S.E. pod espresso brewing. The pressurized portafilter creates artificial pressure that assists with extraction even if the coffee isn’t perfectly tamped or ground to produce a rich crema.For milk drinks, DeLonghi’s Advanced Cappuccino System takes the sometimes daunting task of milk frothing by automatically injecting air directly into the milk to produce a rich, creamy foam. When you’ve textured your milk the way you like, simply submerge the wand to continue heating your milk to your preferred temperature.For easy cleaning and refilling, the ECP 3420’s 37oz water reservoir can be removed from the top of the machine to take to the sink for rinsing or refilling. To provide additional clearance while brewing, the drip tray slides up to accommodate cups up to 5″ high.Pressurized Portafilter With 3 Filter BasketsIf you’re a first time espresso machine owner, a pressurized portafilter is a great way to take the guesswork out of brewing.
