In this post, we’re going to compare the most popular Super Automatic espresso machines by DeLonghi. Because you’ll usually find two machines that are seemingly very similar, yet there’s always a price difference that makes you wonder why and which one to go for. So we’ll be comparing similar models and highlight their differences, which will hopefully help you make a more informed decision.
