Overview

The DeLonghi Specialista offers the best of both customizability and convenience for your at-home cafe. La Specialista offers a radical take on a home espresso machine with programmable drink options that automatically adjust coffee dosing and shot time for your espresso, Americano, or lungo coffee drinks. A side-mounted lever tamps identically every time and removes an often-frustrating manual step—while keeping spilled grounds to a minimum. Milk frothing is equally easy; a separate heating element brings quick steam times while the wand itself can be adjusted between automatic and manual foam creation. The all-in-one La Specialista is just the thing for a beginning barista.

Features and Functionality

  • Programmable Grinder - A built-in burr grinder doses shots automatically and offers control over grind consistency and grind time for each drink option.
  • Calibrated Tamper - The lever tamper integrated into the machine offers consistent puck packing with every shot.
  • Drink Dial - The Specialista features a drink selector for espresso, Americano, and long coffee options—each setting can be modified to your preferences with a dedicated 'my coffee' button.
  • Dual Heating Element - A dedicated second heat circuit for steaming brings the Specialista up to temperature in seconds and offer ample power for milk frothing.
  • Two Cup Heights - A magnetic drop-down shelf makes it easy to adjust your cup height for standalone shots.
  • Adjustable Steam Wand - Adjust the steam wand's sliding collar for automatic or manual milk frothing.
Pros
  • Drink Programming - Pre-programmed for beginners or customizable for your preferences, these built-in settings affect grind, brew time, and auto-dispensing of hot water.
  • Grind System - Well thought out and tied to your drink settings—with a calibrated tamper no less—makes the Specialista's auto-grind system a step above for those looking for easy espresso.
  • Cleanliness - The built-in tamper has another benefit then consistency—it keeps loose grounds from falling into your drip tray and creating a gunky mess.
Cons
  • Pressurized Baskets - The Specialista's one-of-a-kind programming is designed to work with its included pressurized baskets—meaning users looking to manually control their machine have few options for customization.
How Does it Compare? The Specialista is a unique beast. You get very close to the convenience of push-button superautomatic machines, but with more programmability to play with.
