If you're entertaining this season, or simply want to up your coffee game, look no further.
There is no experience quite like walking into your kitchen in your slippers, firing up your espresso machine, and crafting a tier-one, cafe-grade coffee beverage from the comfort of your home. Not familiar with that experience? It's easier than you might think. With De'Longhi's home espresso machines and coffee makers, it's easy to craft incredible coffee drinks at home. But for the ultimate holiday coffee kit, it's about more than just the machine — you need the accessories to go with it. We're talking beautiful glassware, a durable knock box, a sleek milk frothing jug and of course, freshly roasted whole coffee beans. If you're looking to upgrade your coffee game this holiday season, look no further.
The La Specialista is De'Longhi's high-performance manual espresso machine. It's designed to give you optimum control over the brewing process — without making it the rocket-science sorcery that you'd find in a commercial-grade machine. One of its most impressive features is the Integrated Sensor Grinder, which makes it easy to get the right grind size and a consistent dose of coffee. It also has a smart tamping station that automatically tamps the coffee at the right pressure — an easy place to get tripped up if you're a beginner.
