de'longhi magnifica evo - coffee that can be used

I had for Christmas a de'longhi magnifica evo coffee machine.  It states in the instructions "do not used green, caramelised or candied coffee beans as these could stick to the coffee mill and make it unusable"
As part of the gift I was given some coffee packs (brand UNION), two of them state:
"Notes of candied lemon, fudge chocolate truffle"
"Notes of Treacle, dark chocolate and cinnamon"
Anyone know if the UNION packs of coffee beans present a risk to the machine working efficiently?


  • They are just describing aromas and tastes, not that they actually have those in the product. 

    E.g. wines are sometimes described as tasting/smelling like 'wet dog', 'sweaty socks', 'cats pee', etc. Hopefully, wine doesn't actually include them 🤮.
    Sorry! Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours!
  • Will be fine - hopefully you should get a really decent coffee as Union are a quality brand. The 'notes of...' comments are references to the taste (think wine snobs ;)  ).
    I've tried many different beans in my  Magnifica over the last 13 or so years, and never had any issues. 
    A good source of beans to try is Amazon - some accurate reviews on there. Hope you enjoy !
  • If you have access to Costco - they currently have Grumpy Mule beans which I can 100% recommend.

  • Thank you for the replies above.
