De'Longhi: Best Italian Espresso Machines

Fine Coffee: Offering a wide range of premium kitchen and home appliances, De'Longhi has been a leader in its class for more than a century. The Italian-based brand is synonymous with luxury and has become a household name for those who value innovative design, long-lasting performance, and above all an exceptional cup of coffee.

Today, De’Longhi is the fastest-growing espresso brand in America and is constantly striving to go above and beyond when it come to providing barista-style coffee in the comforts of one’s home. Among the selection of state-of-the-art appliances offered by De’Longhi is the Gran Dama Avant Super Automatic Espresso Machine ESAM 6700, an easy-to-use and fully programmable in-home brewing system.

Equipped with all the functionality of an industrial strength espresso machine, the Gran Dama Avant features a digital touch screen control panel, which allows the user to regulate everything from start and shut-off times to temperature control and water hardness. And with five settings to control coffee strength as well as two specific “My Coffee” selections, which stores personal preferences into its memory, this machine makes customizing any coffee quick and easy.

Additional features of the Gran Dama Avant include a patented “direct-to-brew” bean grinding system and conical burr grinder; a double boiler; a decalcification system; a hot water spout for tea or hot chocolate; a removable 60-ounce water tank; a cup warmer; and a unique long coffee function, designed to elongate the brewing process in order to replicate the taste of traditional drip coffee.

As a testament to the heritage of Italian design, the brand has recently introduced the De’Longhi Artista Series, a limited edition collection of high-end espresso makers. Each Perfecta Fully Automatic Espresso Machine features the original artwork of 10 highly acclaimed artists, including a design by notable fashion designer, Nicole Miller.

“At De’Longhi our designers take pride in making products that are beautiful and functional,” said Alvise Ricoveri, Managing Director for De’Longhi. “It seemed only natural to put their creations in the hands of professional artists.”

The De’Longhi Artista Series provides the perfect combination of form and function with its laser-etched stainless steel casing and fully automatic brewing and milk-frothing systems. The highly sought-after collection of Perfectas were recently auctioned to the public online, with proceeds benefiting Oxfam America, a non-profit organization dedicated to the fight against poverty, hunger and social injustice.

So whether you’re in the mood for an espresso, a latte, a cappuccino, or perhaps an Italian macchiato, the advanced engineering and unrivaled tastes of De’Longhi promise to make your next coffee break one worth savoring.
