The De'Longhi ECP 3420 features a cappuccino system with advanced manual frother that mixes and steams milk to create a rich, creamy froth for evenly textured drinks - just the way you like them.

The traditional frother can take a bit of practice. First of all, ensure the milk is fresh and at refrigerator temperature. Use a stainless steel carafe so you can feel the temperature of the milk. In order to make perfect cappuccino dip the tip of the traditional milk frother into the milk. When the appliance is ready carefully rotate the steam valve until it is fully open. This will froth the milk. Never heat the milk over 160 F / 70 C as this will affect the quality of the frothed milk. It is also possible to froth milk in this way for excellent hot chocolate and malt drinks. Each time you finish milk delivery allow a little steam to flush through the frother, and remember to clean the removable nozzles thoroughly.
With all of our pump espresso machines you can prepare the perfect Cappuccino at home. We recommend using low-fat milk or skim milk at refrigerator temperature (about 42°F). Here's how to prepare the Cappuccino.
The boiler is made up of a stainless steel and brass construction.
You may need to tamp your coffee more firmly. Ensure you are using a fine espresso grind. Never use instant coffee in your machine as results will be disappointing.
