Using fresh coffee beans maximises the flavour of your coffee. The first step to the perfect cup of coffee is grinding your choice of roast beans.
An even and consistent grind is an essential element in extracting the best tasting coffee. De’Longhi’s conical metal grinders are calibrated with 100% accuracy and are tested to guarantee the perfect powder thinness is produced. The grinding level can be manually adjusted with ease allowing the thinness to be adjusted according to personal taste and coffee bean blend.
Traditionally, a barista will dose and tamp the coffee manually. This process is automated inside a De’Longhi Fully Automatic machine to ensure consistent results.
Only the required amount of coffee needed for each beverage is ground into the patented brewing unit. Tamping the coffee with consistent pressure and perfectly levelled every time. Just like your barista does!
The correct water temperature is vital in producing barista quality coffee. The thermoblock system heats the water to the optimum brewing temperature, between 83°C and 92°C.
This combined with the essential pump pressure, creates the optimal infusion conditions to ensure the full extraction of oils in the coffee, delivering the perfect flavour in your cup.
Your barista has perfected the milk ratio for each coffee recipe over time. De’Longhi coffee machines ensure your favourite recipe is created accurately with the right amount of milk to coffee.
The LatteCrema milk delivery system allows you to adjust the level of micro-foam to match your favourite beverage. It automatically produces dense and creamy milk directly into each cup.
