Introducing La Specialista Prestigio by De’Longhi. Created for the passionate espresso and coffee drinker, this elegantly designed, professionally-inspired espresso machine empowers you to precisely handcraft espresso the right way. New features and accessories give you more control over espresso extraction. For starters, The Patent Pending Sensor Grinding Technology delivers precise, consistent grinding and the optimal dose for espresso, every time. Two sensors measure the burrs position and therefore calibrate the duration of grinding process to ensure proper dose and grind size. Then the Smart Tamping Station lets you replicate the perfect tamp — simply activate the lever to press the dose with the right pressure for flawless results, with no mess on your countertop. Dynamic pre-infusion works by automatically adapting the pre-infusion length to the density of the coffee dose, to ensure the entire surface of the coffee dose is evenly and gently wet for an optimal extraction. Next, Active Temperature Control with three temperature profiles reduces temperature fluctuations, thus ensuring the perfect stability to brew a high quality coffee and allows to choose between 3 temperature profiles to set the right temperature for the coffee beans of your choice. And on top of that – there is no waiting time between brewing espresso and frothing your milk for latte with Dual Heating System. La Specialista Prestigio is equipped with two independent heating systems. One thermoblock for extracting coffee and an independent heating system for milk texturing or frothing ensures immediate beverage preparation. La Specialista Prestigio features 2 single wall filter baskets for greater control of each extraction. Finally, the My LatteArt steam wand ensures the right milk texturing for café quality lattes and flat-whites. And for added convenience, use La Specialista’s separate hot water spout to brew an authentic Americano. So whether you’re impressing guests with your magnificent coffee skills or enjoying the personal satisfaction that comes from handcrafting something the right way, the versatile La Specialista Prestigio will give you a more enlightened coffee experience at home.
Product note: Please refer to user guide (provided below in PDF) before first use.Note: 1)Too coarse a grind, too little coffee, or insufficiently tamping the grounds before brewing can all lead to inadequate pressure for a proper brew. 2)It is important to note that the amount of espresso extracted will vary depending on the grind size and amount and reprogramming may be needed when the size and amount are adjusted
