Like it or not, working from home (and staying home even when you’re not rushing deadlines) has become a routine that’s here to stay.

Don’t get us wrong, there are many things to be enjoyed about working from home — except that cup of joe you usually grab in the morning.

Yes, cafes deliver cold brew to your home, and you’re not prevented from heading into the outside world for takeaway, but there’s just something about brewing your own cuppa that makes all the difference.

De'Longhi Specialista
Brew the perfect cup at home, every time.

If you’re anything like us, users who want to brew artisanal coffee with zero fuss, then you won’t go wrong with a De’Longhi machine — more specifically, the De’Longhi La Specialista. After all, the storied brand has more than 30 years of global leadership in the coffee category, armed with unparalleled innovation and artistry that sets them apart in the ever-changing coffee world.

All the nitty-gritty

Don’t take it from us, the specifications speak for itself. The machine’s Sensor Grinding Tech delivers precise, consistent grinding and the optimal dose for espresso, every time. It also comes with a bean sensor so you’ll never have to worry about running out during the process.

You won’t have to get a separate tamping kit either. Each De’Longhi La Specialista is equipped with a Smart Tamping Station: just pull the lever and you’re good to go.

The temperature of your water is key in creating the ultimate cup of java. To achieve a stable and consistent water temperature, the machine is fitted with Active Temperature control technology that comes with two independent heating systems – one dedicated for heating water, and one dedicated for steaming milk.

On top of these features, the De’Longhi La Specialista proves to be extremely user-friendly too. Rather than having to tinker with the settings, three different pre-set recipes – Espresso, Coffee, or Americano/Long Black — are available to create a fuss-free experience each time.

The De’Longhi La Specialista is currently going at S$1,199. For more information about the De’Longhi La Specialista, head to their website here.
