Need buying advice for the 1st KVA

Dear Community,

I can't see the forest for the trees. We want to buy our first automatic coffee machine and are overwhelmed by the endless supply. I hope that I can get help from you here and say thank you already.

First about our requirements
: The price should not exceed 700 euros.
The brewing group should be removable.
It should be able to make latte macchiato and cappuccino at the touch of a button.
We drink about 5-6 cups a day.
Cleaning should be as convenient as possible.

Krups and Jura are already ruled out for us because of the permanently installed brewing groups. We have already some models, to which I would like to write my thoughts:

1. Delonghi Dinamica Ecam 350.50.B:

here is for us the milk tank


Since my wife also likes to drink coffee drinks with almond milk, but I want regular milk, this is a problem. Does it possibly work with a hose though? Otherwise, it looks to me like the machine has all the features that are important to us.

2. siemens EQ.6 plus s300:

here I have all the functions I'm very flexible with the hose. However, here I keep reading that the coffee is too cold.

3. Saeco GranAroma:

looks interesting because of the many functions. However, I have concerns about the quality there. We've had a few Philips appliances in the household that just made it through the warranty period and then broke.

I look forward to your experiences and am of course open to other suggestions.

Check out the Melitta Caffeo CI.
Good machine. Cleans the milk system itself. Would prefer it to any of yours above. Priced within your budget too.
