Dinamica Plus test results in a nutshell

How good are the drinks from the Dinamica Plus?

A major strength of the Dinamica Plus is milk foam. It is extremely fine and creamy. Therefore, the cappuccino, latte macchiato and flat white are particularly convincing in our test. In the cappuccino, the slight sweetness of the milk foam combined with the clear espresso flavors create a full-bodied taste.

We were just as thrilled with the espresso. The espresso highlights the intense flavors of our beans particularly well. The crema was hazelnut brown in color and really fine.

All coffee drinkers among you will love the Long. The pulsating surge brewing process and two coffee pucks per cup make provide a lot of aroma and the long was less bitter than regular coffee. If friends come over, the coffee pot function can be used.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus drinks in test

The temperature was in the optimal range for all drinks. The cappuccino, for example, was measured as 71°C (target: at least 67°C).

The drinks have convinced us so much that we have also used the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus privately for a longer time. You can read our detailed experiences either in the Drinks section or watch our our video.

How easy is it to use?

The Dinamica Plus is equipped with a fully automatic milk system, which means you can prepare all your drinks at the touch of a button . The milk system is integrated in the milk container. With a capacity of 500 ml , the container is large enough to prepare up to 6 cappuccinos.

The bean to cup coffee machine is mostly operated from the front . Milk container, Water tank (1.8 liters) and collection trays can be pulled out to the front. The device is only 24 cm wide and therefore optimal for small kitchens.

Coffee and milk spout can each be adjusted in height from 8.5 – 13.5 cm. This means that even tall latte macchiato glasses are no problem.

The display with touch buttons is clearly arranged and can be operated intuitively. We rarely needed to use the manual. A slightly slanted display would have been even better so that you could read it well from above. Tall people may have to bend over slightly.

DeLonghi Dinamica Plus handling in test collage

After switching on, the Dinamica Plus is quickly ready for use (40 sec.) and the drinks can be drawn quickly. Overall, the bean to cup coffee machine scores with very easy handling and everything seems well thought out.

What settings can I adjust?

You can adjust the coffee strength (aroma) in 5 levels using the display. You can even adjust the grinder setting in 13 levels. You will find the regulator in the bean compartment. Alternatively, you can use the compartment for ground coffee.

You can set the beverage quantity in 4 levels – adjusting it from small to large cups. In addition, you can save a self-programmed quantity for each drink . This allows you to separately adjust the amount of coffee and milk foam for cappuccino for example. How this works is explained in detail in the Settings section.

It’s even easier with the DeLonghi App. Using it you can set the amount of coffee in 5 ml steps and the amount of milk foam in seconds. Additionally, you can create your own recipes .

You can save your settings in up to 3 profiles. This allows each member of the family to customize each drink to their personal preferences. The app also allows you to give each profile a name, which is then also transmitted to the bean to cup coffee machine.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Collage Settings

As with all DeLonghi fully automatic coffee machines, there are deductions for the double cup option. Because only with espresso you can prepare two cups at the same time.

On the other hand, there is a dial on the milk container to adjust the consistency of the milk foam. You can determine how the milk should be frothed using those 3 levels. A special feature that only a few

bean to cup coffee machines in the test

offer. This also adjusts the temperature of the milk foam. You can also change the brewing temperature of the coffee in 4 levels.

Overall, the Dinamica Plus offers many settings to adjust each drink to your taste. How well everything can be adjusted and how the bean to cup coffee machine can be controlled via app , you will learn in our video.

How good is the quality of the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus?

The Dinamica Plus ECAM 370.95.T and ECAM 372.95.TB are each made of a high-quality matte plastic . The device is very well made and all parts fit together exactly.

We particularly like the milk container – it is made of a sturdy plastic. Depending on the model, it even has an insulating double wall so that the milk stays cool longer.

The bean compartment is airtight and darkened to protect the flavor of the beans. The drip grid is made of stainless steel and therefore quite prone to scratches – but there are suitable protective foils*.

The conical burr grinder made of hardened steel was measured as 67 dB and is, compared to other bean to cup coffee machines in the test,averagely loud. The milk system is relatively silent at 59 dB. This is also important because it takes much longer to froth milk than it does to grind beans.

The brewing unit is compact and robust. Overall, the quality is convincing and when registering this model (ECAM 370.95.T) on the DeLonghi website, there’s even a 3-year warranty.

What we really like – for DeLonghi bean to cup coffee machine you can buy important spare parts individually. If your brewing unit or milk container should break at some point, you can reorder them at a reasonable price.

How easy is it to clean the Dinamica Plus?

After preparing milk foam drinks, the bean to cup coffee machine will remind you to clean the milk system. If you set the control on the milk container to “Clean“, the milk spout is rinsed with hot water. You can then store the milk container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. After that, you should disassemble it’s 7 individual parts and clean it thoroughly. You can even put them in the dishwasher .

The collection trays for water and coffee pucks are comparatively large. You can prepare up to 14 drinks before a note on the display reminds you to empty the containers. You should rinse them once a week – but do not put them in the dishwasher.

You can remove the brewing unit and rinse it once a week. With DeLonghi bean to cup coffee machines the brewing unit is very compact and therefore does not get as dirty as with other devices.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Collage Cleaning

Overall, cleaning is simple and the weekly effort is no more than 15-20 minutes.

Decalcification should be done every 1-3 months. How often you need to descale depends on the number of beverages you prepare and water hardness. If you use the bean to cup coffee machine with a water filter, the period is extended to 3-6 months.

You will find more details in the Cleaning section. We’ll also provide tips for suitable care products.

What is the difference between ECAM 370.95.T and ECAM 372.95.TB?

The ECAM 372.95.TB is a successor and technically identical to the ECAM 370.95.T. The only differences are in terms of color and appearance of the milk container.

DeLonghi Dinamica Plus Models & Finishes

The successor to our ECAM370.95.T(in titanium) is now available, the ECAM 372.95.TB(in titanium black). According to DeLonghi, it is technically the same device. The only differences are in terms of colour and appearance of the milk container, which both have been changed a little. In addition, there is a cheaper version – the ECAM 370.70.B in black. It comes without app controls and has only one profile. All differences at a glance:

Individual parts in detail

The DeLonghi Dinamica Plus is 24 cm wide, which is hardly bigger than a coffee machine with grinder. Compared to many other fully automatic coffee machines, it has two advantages – you can pull out the water tank and the milk container both to the front. This saves space and is also suitable for smaller kitchens. The casing is made of a matte plastic and looks high-quality.

Delonghi Dinamica ECAM 370.95.T test

Milk system

The DeLonghi Dinamica Plus has a fully automatic milk system that allows you to prepare any drink at the touch of a button. Simply fill the milk container with cold milk and plug it into the bean to cup coffee machine. About 500 ml of milk for 4-5 drinks fit into the container. After drawing, remove the container with a handle and place it in the refrigerator.

The milk container makes a very good impression on us regarding quality. The milk spout can be adjusted in height to perfectly fit different glasses.

Another highlight is the control for the consistency of the milk foam. This allows you to control the amount and consistency of milk foam. Depending on the setting, you will get hot milk without foam, a little and rather liquid milk foam or a lot of creamy foam.

Rotary control to adjust the consistency of the milk foam

For cappuccino, for example, level 3 with lots of creamy milk foam is recommended. Once you have adjusted everything to your liking, the creamy milk foam flows into the glass. You don’t have to measure or froth the milk yourself, it’s all automatic. Unfortunately, however, milk drinks can only be prepared one after the other, as there is only one milk spout.

Milk foam flows into the glass – no need for manual frothing

By the way, with an average of 59 decibels, the milk system of the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus is one of the quietest in our test. You can still talk comfortably without shouting.


Bean compartment

At the top center of the Dinamica Plus you will find the bean compartment. It fits up to 300g of beans for about 30 drinks. The aroma is protected by an airtight and slightly darkened lid. The opening is quite large and therefore the compartment is easy to fill.

The opening is quite large and the compartment is easy to fill. It even appears a note in the display as soon as the bean compartment is empty. However, the message only appears if the compartment is already empty, and even then only very briefly.

Thanks to the huge opening the compartment is easy to fill up

A grid ensures that all beans slide evenly towards the grinder. At the same time, of course, it prevents someone from reaching into the grinder. The bean compartment is well thought out and the quality definitely is good.

The grid allows the beans to slide to the grinder and prevents accidents

A compartment for ground coffee is also integrated in the front area. This is ideal for preparing a decaffeinated drink in between times, for example.

Grinder of the DeLonghi ECAM 370.95.T

The DeLonghi Dinamica Plus is equipped with a conical burr grinder made of stainless steel. You can adjust the grinder setting in 13 levels (labeled 1-7) using the control dial. You will find the regulator at the back left of the bean compartment. To adjust the grinder setting, simply turn towards 7 (coarse) or towards 1 (fine). In the test, this worked without any problems.

You can adjust the grinder setting in 13 levels – labeled from 1-7

You can see which grinder setting is currently set by the small arrow on the back. Ex works, the grinder is set to level 5 of 7, which is relatively coarse. To avoid jamming and damaging the grinder, you should only adjust it during the grinding process. Preferably only by one level per grinding process.

The small arrow shows you which grinder setting is selected.

At level 2.5 of 7, the coffee powder is already ground quite finely. It is definitely very good for espresso. With an average of 67 decibels, the grinder is also relatively quiet. Not quite as quiet as the Siemens EQ.500, but still one of the quieter fully automatic coffee machines in our test.

Water tank

On the right side of the Dinamica Plus is the water tank. It holds up to 1.8 liters and can be easily pulled out to the front. In our opinion, this is also the best solution for bean to cup coffee machines, because this way you don’t need any additional space next to it. You can access both the water tank and the milk container directly from the front.As soon as the water tank is empty, a message appears on the display.

Note in the display

At the bottom of the tank you will find the connection for a water filter. The first filter is included in the scope of delivery. With a filter, you need to descale (significantly) less often and save yourselfs the effort. However, afilter* costs a little more compared to the descaler. We filter our water because the less lime that gets into the pipes, the better.

You can use the Dinamica Plus with or without a water filter – the choice is yours.

On top of the tank sits another lid made of plastic. It has a small opening to fill the tank and a bracket that fixes the water filter. If you do not use a filter, you can simply remove the lid. Overall, the quality is very good and the tank closes exactly with the rest of the casing. No gaps to be seen.

Coffee spout

With the DeLonghi Dinamica, you can adjust the coffee spouts from 8.5 to 13.5 cm. Everything looks quite sturdy, although plastic and not stainless steel is used here. For small espresso cups, the gap is relatively large. In our test, however, nothing splashed.

Nothing splashes past even the small espresso cup

It always a close call with the large latte macchiato glasses. They only fit under the coffee and milk spout of a few bean to cup coffee machines. However, the Dinamica Plus is very flexible here and can even handle the huge Ikea cup.

DeLonghi ECAM 370 95 T latte macchiato glass

Even large latte macchiato glasses are no problem

There are two coffee spouts. However, you can only prepare espresso in the double cup option and not coffee. This is a pity and not comprehensible for us. It can even prepare a pot of coffee with 6 cups, but no double cup option for 2 large cups. Why?! However, there is a cup heater. This uses the waste heat from the bean to cup coffee machine and takes a little while to heat up.

You switch on the device with the round button on the top of the display. When switched on, the machine performs an automatic rinsing process and heats up. After approx. 40 seconds you can prepare the first drink

the power button is located at the top of the device

The display has a good size and understandably laid out. On the screen you will see all drinks as pictures – 4 drinks per page. You can use the arrow keys to scroll through the pages by touch . Here you have to be a bit careful: the arrows are relatively close to the drink symbols. As soon as you have selected a beverage, the bean to cup coffee machine immediately starts preparing it.

the start screen shows you all drinks to browse through

The nice thing is that the bean to cup coffee machine always shows you the drinks you prepared last as the first. So if you like to drink a Flat White, you don’t have to scroll through all the pages every time. Below the screen you will find 6 more buttons that are also used via touch. The symbols are relatively self-explanatory.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Display Knobs

Touch buttons under the screen

On the top left button (cups icon) you set the beverage quantity. Next to it, you’ll find a button with coffee beans – for adjusting the coffee strength. The other buttons allow you to set up profiles, adjust all beverage settings (My), and access the main menu (gearwheel). We’ll explain all settings in detail in pointSettings.

Overall, the display is very clear and easy to use. However, it could be a bit slanted so that you can read it well from above. The font in the screen could also be a little bigger. Elderly people don’t necessarily seem to be the target group here.


With the Delonghi Dinamica Plus, you can choose from these 12 different beverages:


Good espresso is intense, aromatic, full-bodied and has a fine brown crema. We have experimented a lot to find the best possible settings for you. These are our tips for espresso from the Dinamica Plus.

We got the best results with the grinder setting at level 2 out of 7. This is because finer coffee powder produces more intense espresso. For the coffee strength, we recommend the “strong” or “extra strong” levels. The beverage quantity is set to 40 ml. If you like it stronger, you can reduce the amount to 20 ml (Ristretto) or increase it to 80 ml (Lungo).

The draw takes about 45 seconds and the temperature is just right at 70°C. If you like it even hotter, you can set the brewing temperature to “very high” in the menu. By the way, a double cup option is also possible for espresso, i.e. two espressos at the same time.

Espresso extraction takes 45 seconds – temperature 70°C

How good is the espresso?

We always use the same beans for our tests, so we have a direct comparison to other fully automatic coffee machines. The espresso from the DeLonghi Dinamica is one of the best we’ve had so far. In the photo you can see the fine, light brown crema.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Crema from espresso

Fine, light brown and dense crema on the espresso

Taste-wise, the espresso is intense and aromatic. The light nutty aromas of our beans come through clearly. As for the consistency, the espresso is nice and thick and reminds a bit of syrup. It’s exactly the same with portafilters. The Dinamica Plus comes close. Overall, a very good espresso that could convince all test subjects.


An intense coffee in the morning has saved many a day. It should be aromatic and hot, but, of course, contain little bitterness. With the DeLonghi ECAM 370.95.T you have two different coffees to choose from – the classic coffee and a long coffee. We briefly explain the difference, because it is important for the taste.

At classic coffee all of the water is pressed under high pressure through the coffee puck. Due to the relatively long extraction a few more bitter substances are extracted and get into the cup. This is because bitter substances are deeply enclosed in the coffee powder and are only dissolved by prolonged contact with hot water. So, for example, when a lot of water is pressed through a coffee puck.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Coffee Crema

Fine light brown crema in classic coffee

The alternative is the Long Coffee. For this the so called surge brewing process is used. Small amounts of water are repeatedly pressed through the coffee puck using a lower pressure. In addition, after the half of the draw a second grinding process is started and a second coffee puck is used. Due to the lower pressure and the second coffee puck, the bitter substances get significantly reduced.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Long Coffee

The Long has a thinner crema, but is particularly digestible

Now for a quick few tips on the best settings for your coffee and long coffee.

The grinder setting should be a little coarser than for espresso, levels 4-5 of 7 are ideal. The somewhat coarser coffee powder also dissolves fewer bitter substances. The beverage quantity is set at 180 ml, but you can adjust it in four levels from 100-250 ml. For the aroma, we recommend levels 3-4.

Drawing a classic coffee takes 1:20 minutes. With the Long, the draw is about 2 minutes because of the second grinding process. Both variants were definitely nice and hot at around 75°C. Unfortunately, a double cup option (two cups at the same time) is not possible. We don’t know why either, because there is even a coffee pot function for up to 750 ml. Our recommendation if you want to prepare two large cups of coffee at the same time – just choose a pot with 500 ml.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus coffee

Drawing a cup of coffee takes about 1:20 minutes

How good is the coffee really?

Our product testers were particularly enthusiastic about the Long Coffee. It is an aromatic and at the same time more digestible alternative to regular coffee. The crema of the Long is not as fine as that of coffee, but the special extraction process ensures that hardly any bitterness enters the cup. Since two coffee pucks are used, the taste is also really intense.

However, the normal coffee is also impressive compared to other bean to cup coffee machines. Nevertheless, the bitter substances come through a bit more and our testers therefore prefer the Long Coffee. Overall, coffee drinkers will definitely have fun with the Dinamica Plus as well, not just milk foam fans.


For many, it is the main reason to buy a bean to cup coffee machine – the cappuccino. We think of fine, slightly sweet milk foam combined with an aromatic espresso. The perfect start to the day, right? We have experimented a lot to find the ideal settings for you (and us). This is the result.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Cappuccino Preparation

This is what cappuccino must look like – with a fine milk foam crown

We set the grinder setting to levels 2-3 out of 7. Because cappuccino is prepared with espresso. To make it intense and aromatic, it needs a fine grinder setting. We prefer to set the aroma to “strong” (4 beans), so that the espresso really comes into its own. You can adjust the quantity to your cup in 4 levels or program it freely.

You can also adjust the consistency of the milk foam in 3 levels. We use the highest level, as recommended in the instructions. Then there’s a lot of creamy and fine foam. On the medium level you get a little less and more liquid foam.

DeLonghi is an Italian manufacturer and uses the classic recipes. Therefore, the cappuccino is more intense in the factory settings than we are used to. Of course, you can easily adjust the amount of milk and espresso. We explain how to do this in the Settings.

The preparation takes about 1:40 minutes and the cappuccino has the ideal temperature of 71°C. However, the first cappuccino does not always get hot enough. Here are two quick tips on this: raise the brewing temperature in the menu and start a short rinse cycle of the milk system (about 30 seconds). Then the temperature rises. Unfortunately, a double cup option is not possible for milk beverages.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Cappuccino Espresso

How good are the cappuccino and milk foam?

As far as milk foam is concerned, the Dinamica Plus is right up there. Very uniform, fine and creamy milk foam. The foam has a great consistency and sticks well to the spoon. On the palate, the slight sweetness of the milk comes through nicely and rounds out the intense espresso flavors. Overall, a very good cappuccino, which also gives a feeling of coffee house at home.

Very fine and creamy milk foam – easily passes the spoon test

Latte Macchiato

Let’s move on to the second milk foam classic, the latte macchiatio. This is ideal for those who like it particularly mild. Here, the milk share is even higher compared to the cappuccino. In our test, the following settings got us the best results.

We set the grinder setting to levels 2-3 of 7, as for espresso. To get some espresso flavors despite the high milk content, we set the coffee strength to level 4 “strong”. You can adjust the beverage quantity to your glass via 4 levels or program it freely. Level 4 will definitely fill even a large glass.

For the consistency of the milk foam, we recommend level 2, i.e. slightly less foam. This is also typical for latte macchiato. If you really love a lot of milk foam, you can of course also select level 3.

It takes about 2 minutes to draw and the latte macchiato has a perfect temperature of 69°C. Not quite as hot as the cappuccino, though. This is due to the high milk content and also has a good reason. This is because milk is only heated to approx. 65°C here, as it can already taste slightly burnt at even higher temperatures.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Latte Macchiato Preparation

The fine milk foam is finished with espresso

How good is the latte macchiato?

Just like with the cappuccino, the milk foam is really convincing our testers. Very fine, uniform and creamy. As you can see in the photo below, it’s a little more liquid than the cappuccino. The sweetness of the milk and the light espresso flavors complement each other very well.

Fine, creamy milk foam – a little more fluid than in cappuccino

After a few seconds, the three typical layers can be seen – the hot milk at the bottom, the espresso above it, and the fine milk foam on top. Visually and in terms of taste, the latte macchiato is also one of the best in the test field.

More drinks

The Dinamica Plus offers you 12 different beverages. In addition to the classics, there’s also Flat White, Cappuccino Mix, Cappuccino+, Caffelatte, Doppio+, Espresso Macchiato and the coffee pot. Besides, you can also just prepare hot water or hot milk.

Flat White

Flat White is the intense alternative to cappuccino. It is prepared with a small strong espresso (ristretto) and a little more milk foam. The milk foam (level 2) is slightly more liquid and creamy than in cappuccino. In taste it is a little stronger and more aromatic.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Flat White Preparation

“Flat” White – now that’s what we call a milk foam cap

Espresso Macchiato

Very interesting is the espresso macchiato – an espresso with a milk foam cap. This is another level more intense than the Flat White. The perfect middle ground for those who find espresso too strong and cappuccino too mild.

Espresso Macchiato – an espresso with milk foam crown

Cappuccino mix

In the Cappuccino Mix, the classic recipe is prepared in the correct order. First espresso and then milk foam. For optical reasons, almost all fully automatic bean to cup coffee machines first prepare the milk foam and then the espresso. You can see why on the picture below. It’s also the only drink that didn’t quite convince us. The milk foam, for example, is not that fine.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Cappuccino Mix Preparation

Cappuccino in classic order – first espresso, then milk foam

Pot of coffee

Only very few bean to cup coffee machines offer a coffee pot function. But you don’t have to do without this with the Dinamica Plus. You can brew up to 6 cups or 750 ml at a time. A total of 3 grinding processes are performed for this. Since normal coffee lacks a double cup option, the coffee pot option is ideal for preparing 2 large cups at the same time.

In addition, you can still prepare pure milk foam, for example, to prepare a hot choclate. This is where the consistency dial comes into its own. You can prepare hot milk without, with little or with much foam simply by pressing a button. There is a suitable setting for everyone.

Settings of the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus

As soon as you select a beverage, the bean to cup coffee machine immediately starts preparing it. If you want to adjust the coffee strength or beverage quantity, you should do so in advance. Otherwise, the device will fall back to your already saved setting. If you have not saved anything individually, the factory settings are used.

Set coffee strength

You can set the coffee strength for each drink in 5 levels. This ranges from extra mild (x-mild) to extra strong (x-strong). To do this, press the coffee bean icon until you have set your desired strength. The set coffee strength is shown at the top right of the display.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus Adjust coffee strength

the coffee strength can be adjusted over 5 levels

A coffee spoon symbol appears on the 6th level. Use this setting if you want to use ground coffee.

If you want to permanently save a certain coffee strength for a drink, you have to reprogram the respective drink.

Set beverage quantity

In other DeLonghi bean to cup coffee machines, the amount from value is often fixed programmed. Here you can set the beverage quantity via 4 levels : Small, Medium, Large and Extra Large. To do this, simply press the cup icon at the top left of the display.

you can adjust the beverage quantity via 4 levels

However, the quantities do not specify exact milliliters. We do not find a hint in the manual either. In our test, we prepared a cappuccino mix in “Small” and “Medium” and obtained the following quantities:

Delonghi Dinamica Plus drink quantity levels

Cappuccino Mix “Small” (left) and “Medium” (right)

Our 200 ml jar was only completely full at the “Large” volume setting. So the cup sizes are kept relatively small. If you do not change the beverage quantity, the machine will prepare your programmed quantity. If you have not (yet) programmed anything, it always selects the default quantity (medium).

What we like about it: The device always retains the saved recipe. This means that the ratio of the amount of coffee to the amount of milk always remains the same. With the predecessor model – the DeLonghi Dinamica ECAM 350.55.Bthis was not yet the case.

Double cup option

The double cup option is unfortunately only possible for espresso. Coffee and all beverages with milk foam can only be prepared one after the other. This is also logical, because the device has only one milk spout. However, we don’t understand why we can’t prepare two coffees at the same time. Eventually, the device can prepare a whole pot of coffee. Alternatively, instead of a pot, you can simply place 2 cups underneath. To activate the double cup option, press the Espresso icon twice in succession. Of course, you must not forget to place 2 espresso cups underneath. 😉

Prepare pot of coffee

Often sought and rarely found – the coffee pot function. With the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus, you can brew up to 6 cups or 750 ml of coffee at once. That’s not much of a pot – but it’s still more than many other bean to cup coffee machines offer. One pot grinds up to 3 coffee pucks and accordingly brews 3 times.

the bean to cup coffee machine can brew a whole pot of coffee (up to 750 ml)

By the way, you can also use the jug function if you want to prepare two cups at the same time. To do this, simply place the two cups under each coffee spout. Now select either 2 cups (125 ml per cup) or 4 cups (250 ml per cup) as the quantity. According to the instructions, you should let the bean to cup coffee machine cool down for 5 minutes before the next preparation. Otherwise, there is a risk of overheating.

Program drinks

You can completely reprogram each drink using the “My” icon. This allows you to adjust the ratio of coffee and amount of milk to your taste for cappuccino and the like. Theoretically, you can even create your own recipes.

Delonghi Dinamica Plus bean to cup coffee machine My settings

under “My” you can reprogram each drink

And this is how it works: Select the drink you want to customize in the “My Menu”. We’ll now show you the whole thing on a cappuccino. First, the bean to cup coffee machine will ask you for the desired coffee strength. Here you have the 5 coffee strengths to choose from extra mild (x-mild) to extra strong (x-strong)

Select and confirm coffee strength for cappuccino

Now the device begins to prepare. The display shows a bar indicating the programmable amount of milk. In the course of preparation, the bar continues to fill. The asterisk marks the location of the previous setting. Once you are satisfied with the amount of milk, press “Stop” on the display.

Then the bean to cup coffee machine dispenses the coffee. Again, you will see a bar for the amount of coffee. Press “Stop” again as soon as you are satisfied with the amount.

Finally, the bean to cup coffee machine will ask you if you want to save the settings. Confirm with “ok” or choose “Esc” if you do not want to save the drink.

Save new settings

You can program the following quantities:

Espresso:20 – 180 ml
Long:115 – 250 ml
Coffee:100 – 240 ml
Doppio+:80 – 180 ml
Cappuccino, latte macchiato, etc.:

20 – 180 ml (espresso)

5 – 90 sec. (Milk Foam)

On the device, the quantities are set more by eye. It’s even better if you use the De’Longhi app. Here you can precisely adjust the amount of coffee in 5 ml steps. The amount of milk is given in seconds. For example, for cappuccino, the amount of milk is 16 seconds. This refers to the time of milk frothing. The longer the bean to cup coffee machine froths milk, the more milk foam ends up in your cup.

Here, of course, it would be even nicer to have concrete milliliter specifications. However, the volume is of course also dependent on which milk foam consistency you have set on the milk container. In total, you have a programmable amount of milk foam between 5 to 90 seconds.

With the Delonghi app you can adjust the amount of coffee and milk foam even more precisely.

Set milk foam consistency

Directly on the milk container you will find a control for the milk foam consistency. Use the 3 levels to set how strongly the milk should be frothed. On the first level you get hot milk without foam – perfect for caffe latte or cocoa. On level 2, you get the perfect amount of foam for latte macchiato or flat white. On level 3 you will get a lot of foam as recommended for cappuccino. Of course, these are only recommendations. Of course you can experiment here. You can easily adjust the slider by turning it by hand. Each time you take a drink, the device will remind you of the recommended level.

Set temperature

You can choose from 4 levels for the temperature: low, medium, high and very high. Unfortunately, you can only set the temperature generally and not by drink. This means that as soon as you change the temperature, it will be saved for all drinks.

By the way, we achieved the best results at the “high” level. Here, the temperature of the drinks was always in the ideal range. If you like it even hotter, you can also set the temperature to “very high”. This is recommended for espresso and all drinks based on it (cappuccino, latte macchiato). What many people don’t know is that the temperature only changes the brewing temperature of the coffee – not the milk foam.

the temperature can be adjusted via 4 levels

Adjust grinder setting

The grinder control is located in the bean compartment. The grinder has a total of 7 levels, which you can set in half steps (1 – 1.5 – 2 – 2.5 etc.) This gives you effectively even 13 grinder settings to choose from and plenty of room for experimentation. The factory setting is level 5, which is ideal for normal coffee or long coffee. For espresso and all drinks based on it (cappuccino), we recommend level 2-3. At this setting, the espresso had a nice crema and was balanced in aroma.

the grinder setting can be adjusted over 13 levels

It is important that you only adjust the grinder during operation and only by half a level at a time. By the way, this is the case with all bean to cup coffee machines, and for good reason: there are always coffee beans in the grinder that only “slip through” during grinding. Outside the grinding process, the beans are literally “stuck”. You’ll notice that the grinder is difficult to adjust and, in the worst case, may even break. By the way, a new grinder setting has an effect only after 2-3 drinks.

Create profiles

You can create up to 3 profiles and a guest profile with this Delonghi model. With each profile you can make the settings mentioned so far. This is especially useful if everyone in the household drinks their coffee differently. With the Delonghi app, even your name is transmitted to the device. So there is no profile confusion – very convenient.

you can create 3 profiles and one guest profile

Once you have selected a profile, all beverage settings you make now will be saved exclusively under this profile. To do this, go to “my” to customize the desired drink to your taste. The drinks that you do not adjust will be output in the default setting.

App control

The app control of the Delonghi Dinamica Plus is particularly praiseworthy. The bean to cup coffee machine is connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth. The app is very clearly laid out and easy to understand. On the home screen you can scroll through all the drinks. By the way, the order of drinks changes after each preparation. This way, your favorite drinks are always displayed in front – very smart.

As soon as you tap on a beverage image, you can make further settings. While you program the quantities on the device more by eye, you can make very precise settings here. You can set the amount of coffee in 5 ml increments and the amount of milk in seconds (duration of frothing). You can also determine the aroma and temperature. The bean to cup coffee machine saves your settings for the beverage. You can recognize this by the fact that the “my” symbol appears next to the drink.

Of course, you can also select different profiles in the app. Just tap on the avatar image in the upper right corner. In addition, you can even create your own recipes and thereby create completely new coffee creations. In addition to the amount of coffee and milk, you can also specify their order (first espresso, then milk foam or vice versa). Really cool.

Of course, the app is not absolutely necessary. However, we find it very practical since even finer settings can be made here. Handling is even easier than directly on the device. Every now and then, especially after switching on the bean to cup coffee machine, there are short connection problems. The app is also sometimes a bit sluggish when changing profiles. On the whole, however, it works quite reliably.

To prepare your coffee from bed is unfortunately not possible. The reason: the device must be turned on to use the app at all. And even if the app could turn on the bean to cup coffee machine, it will always perform a rinse cycle after it is turned on. The rinse water will then land in your cup first. As you can see, there is still a long way to go until you have a really smart app control 😉

Reset factory settings

In the menu you can reset individual beverages for each profile under “Beverage settings”. This makes sense if you want to return to the recommended default setting for a particular drink. Simply confirm the respective drink with “Reset”.

you can reset drink individually to default setting

By the way, you can reset the entire device in the main menu under “Factory settings”. Note, however, that really everything except the language is reset here.

Set standby time

If you do not prepare a beverage, the bean to cup coffee machine switches itself off after a while. You can set when the machine goes into standby mode in 5 levels from 15 minutes to 3 hours. If you set level 1 and do not prepare a beverage for 15 minutes, the DeLonghi ECAM 370.95.T switches itself off.

Cleaning the DeLonghi ECAM 370.95.T

Only those who regularly maintain their bean to cup coffee machine will be supplied with good coffee in the long term. But it’s not as elaborate as some of you think. Especially not DeLonghi, because here they have thoroughly thought about cleaning. What is to be done according to the instructions?

  • Brewing unit: according to instructions 1x monthly – we recommend 1x weekly cleaning
  • Milk system: short rinse cycle after each withdrawal
  • Milk container: clean every 2 days – by hand or dishwasher
  • Drip trays: clean when full or after 3 days
  • Descaling: every 1-6 months depending on water hardness and filter
  • Water tank and interior: clean monthly or as needed

In total, the effort for you is 15-20 minutes per week. For this estimate, we assumed a purchase of 20 drinks per week.

In the following, we have selected the most important care products in each case in the original and a cheaper alternative. For descaler, we always use the original during the warranty.

Clean milk system

After you have prepared a drink with milk foam, you will be directly reminded of the rinsing process. If you prepare several drinks in succession, you must of course start the rinsing process only at the end.

DeLonghi Dinamica Plus milk system cleaning

Start the rinsing process – Turn the control to the right to “Clean

To do this, place an empty cup under the milk spout and turn the control to “Clean”. The remaining milk can remain in the container. Only hot water and steam is passed through the lid and milk spout. A flushing process takes approx. 1 minute. In our test, the program worked very thoroughly and reliably.

The milk system cleans itself with hot water and steam

After that, you can remove the milk container and put it in the refrigerator. Every 2-3 days you should clean the milk container thoroughly, either in the dishwasher or by hand.

For this purpose, the milk container including the lid can be disassembled into a total of 7 parts. Everything is well thought out and easier than you might think.

Wash by hand every 2 days or put in the dishwasher

In the dishwasher, we recommend you use the Eco mode at 40° to 50°C. Alternatively, you can also soak the milk container and especially the lid in warm water with milk system cleaner for 10 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. This makes especially sense to remove the milk fat. Then you get permanently creamy fine milk foam.

Cleaning the drip tray & coffee grounds tray

The coffee grounds tray of the DeLonghi ECAM 370.95.T can hold up to 14 coffee pucks. You can therefore prepare 14 drinks without having to empty the container in between. When it is full, a message appears in the display.

The drip tray is also relatively large. There a red float shows you when the bowl is full. By the way, you can simply pull out both containers to the front.

A note appears in the display

The coffee pucks are pressed cleanly and end up all in one piece in the container. Only rarely do we find some coffee powder in the drip tray or the interior.

DeLonghi Dinamica Plus coffee pucks

Well pressed coffee pucks – up to 14 drinks without cleaning

Compared to other bean to cup coffee machines, the effort is very low . We only rarely find some coffee powder in the drip tray or the interior.

Large drip tray in which hardly any coffee residues end up

Tip: Simply place a cup underneath when switching on and off to catch the water from the rinsing processes. Then you can also permanently remove the plastic grid with the float and save yourself the washing up.

Empty the containers regularly and rinse them once a week with warm water and washing-up liquid. According to the instructions, they must not be put in the dishwasher. However, nothing happened in Eco mode with max.40°C for us and also according to other users. This is your decision. However, the containers have hardly any corners and are also easy to clean by hand.

In total, the effort per week is about 5 minutes.

brewing unit

With the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus, you can remove the brewing unit in a few easy steps. First you need to turn off the bean to cup coffee machine, then remove the water tank and open the flap behind it. The brewing unit has two red buttons – you just squeeze them together and pull them out.

Behind the water tank is the brewing unit

According to the instructions, you should clean the brewing unit once a month. We recommend you to clean them 1x per week. The longer the coffee residue dries in, the more difficult it is to clean.

However, we found only a few coffee residues on the brewing unit of the Dinamica Plus. Simply rinse them with clean water or immerse them in water for a few minutes. However, you should not use detergent, because some moving parts are greased so that everything runs like lubricated.

Immerse brewing unit in warm water for 5 minutes

The brewing unit is very compact and robust. This makes it easy to clean. Inside the machine there is still the plunger (top left of the service door) which you can wipe with a damp cloth. That’s it for cleaning the brewing unit.Overall, the effective effort is only 2 minutes per week.

DeLonghi Dinamica Plus descale

The program for descaling is performed almost completely automatically. It takes about 45 minutes, but for you the effort is only about 5 minutes.

If the water is very hard you need to descale monthly, with soft water about every 3 months. You can’t get around this with any bean to cup coffee machine. In order for the bean to cup coffee machine to remind you to descale in time, it is important to set the correct water hardness in the menu. For this purpose, a test strip is included in the scope of delivery.

If you have a water filter you need to descale much less often. An original filter costs about 8 pounds and lasts about 2 months. Compared to other manufacturers, this is relatively inexpensive. A filter is definitely recommended if the water contains lime, especially for high-quality bean to cup coffee machines like the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus. After all, the less lime that gets into the pipes, the longer the service life.

We have brought you both the original descaler and water filteras well as a cheaper alternative.

How does descaling work?

You select “Descaling” in the menu and then follow the step-by-step instructions. First, empty the water tank and remove the water filter. Now the tank is filled with descaler up to line “A” and then with water up to line “B”. Then empty the drip trays, replace them and place a bowl underneath. Now the actual decalcification begins and you can sit back.

After about 25 minutes, you will need to rinse and refill the water tank. Then the program continues again. At the end you put the water filter back in and fill the tank again, that’s it.

In any case, it is practical that you are guided through the program via the display in an easily understandable way. This way you can’t really do anything wrong.

Activate water filter

In the scope of delivery you will find a test strip to determine the lime content of your tap water. You can then set this in the menu under “Water hardness” in 4 levels. Read the level directly from your test strip. The bean to cup coffee machine can then determine exactly when decalcification is required. A message then appears in the display.

With a water filter, you will have to descale the DeLonghi Dinamica Plus less often. The first filter is included in the scope of delivery. Whether you continue to use filters after that or decalcify a little more often is up to you. You can activate the filter in the menu via “Water filter”. Just follow the instructions on the display that show you step-by-step what to do. If you have soft water (level 1 on the test strip) a filter is not really necessary.
