A perfect cup of coffee is bliss! I am a borderline caffeine enthusiast but end up sipping tea at times, because that ideal cup of coffee is just not easy to find. While making tea is routine, we can’t say the same about coffee. Settling for less than a perfect cup of coffee is just not my thing. So, when I was invited to the De’Longhi Group’s event as they foray into the Indian market in partnership with Orient Electric, I was ecstatic!
I first came across De’Longhi coffee machines on my trip to Italy. Since then it has been my most-preferred brand for a cup of creamy cappuccino every time I travel to Italy. On my last trip, I wished that I could bring the De’longhi experience home with me! But after so much shopping it was almost impossible to carry it all the way back here. So, now you all can imagine my level of excitement when I heard that my favourite machine is coming to India! It is safe to say that there was no stopping me. 😀 Also they launched another range of Kenwood and Braun products, I will tell you more about it in next post.
I can go on and on about its features but before that allow me to introduce this beauty to you.
De’ Longhi is the top Italian premium brand that offers various ranges of coffee makers to enjoy a perfect cup of coffee in the comfort of your home. Not only coffee but, De’Longhi offers other ranges of products as well. Their food preparation brand Kenwood is your answer to creating a perfect dish. Their other brand Braun is actually the world’s no 1 hand-blender brand. I love how their designs are so sleek with a powerful high-quality motor.
We now have access to not only De’Longhi but, Kenwood and Braun products as well. Orient Electric, the most trusted household name in India has joined hands with De’Longhi Group. They are in charge of the marketing, distribution, and servicing of De’Longhi products in India. Now that calls for a treat!
If you are curious as to why I was so relieved about the partnership is because now I am assured of the 24/7 service. For me, this is an important aspect in deciding to buy any home appliance. With Orient Electric in the picture and looking at my previous experience with their products, I believe this should be great too.
Okay, so now coming back to this extraordinarily premium brand, here’s what I loved about the brand and my experience. Let me start by answering the most common question of how De’Longhi is different and better from other brands in the market. So, one vital thing that makes it different from other brands is its Lattecrema System.
De'Longhi LatteCrema System creates perfectly layered espresso beverages that have a dense, rich, long-lasting fine foam in every cup from start to finish. The foam is full of cream and is way denser than Delhi's pollution. Lol.
What surprised me the most was that the foam had no bubbles and was thick and full of cream until the last drop. De’Longhi is the only real Italian bean to cup coffee machine that offers the original Italian Espresso and perfect creamy Cappuccino. Thanks to De’Longhi’s Latte Crema System, we are served world-class foam. The powerful motor mixes steam, air and milk in correct proportions to deliver the right foam with every steaming cup. Speaking of steaming, you can personalize the temperature from medium to low.
So, it's not just the aroma and taste you can customize but the temperature as well. You can even sip a medium temperature coffee without having to wait for it to cool down. Or, if like me you like it really hot, you can customise that too. Other than its Latte Creme System, the following are the reasons why De’Longhi is the perfect brand to buy coffee machines from.
Cafe Style Coffee At Home!
There is no denying that when you have a beast of a coffee machine such De’Longhi’s, you are sure to enjoy cafe style coffee at home. In fact, I can assure you that every cup is better than what you get in cafes itself. The feel of a true Italian cup of espresso or latte or the creamy cappuccino comes from this machine.
From Bean To Cup, Literally!
No joking! The PrimaDonna Elite Experience fully automatic machine by De’Longhi makes beverages with one touch. It has an integrated coffee grinder with 13 adjustable settings, so all you have to do is take out your pre-ground or ground coffee beans, put them in the machine, set your profile, and sit back and relax.
Set User Profile!
The machines have user profiles so that you can set up to 6 profiles and enjoy your coffee the way you want it, each time. It’s like your personal Barista!
Easy To Use!
De’Longhi coffee makers come with programmable automatic shut off and switch for the system. It can be used either with coffee beans or pre-ground coffee. In fact, Autentica has more than 16 languages for using the machine in a clear and easy way.
Sensor Touch Button Display!
PrimaDonna Elite has 4.3 TFT colour display with screen touch technology! 😀 The other coffee makers ie Eletta Cappuccino Top, Autentica and Dinamica have text display with soft touch buttons, while Eletta has a sensor touch.
One Touch Coffee!
With De’Longhi your perfect espresso and cappuccino is just a touch away, literally. Just set the coffee for your choice and then whoosh! Your cup will have an espresso with your desired strong crema in minutes.
Not just espresso but full of froth, a cafe style cappuccino or a strong cafe latte will be a touch away with this machine as well.
Integrated Thermal Milk Carafe with Automatic Cleaning!
You know how I feel about mess and hygiene so I was particularly excited about its self-cleaning feature. As expected, I was not disappointed. All the coffee makers are installed with an integrated thermal milk carafe (jug) that prevents milk from entering inside the machine which results in no bacterial formation. In other words, it has automatic cleaning!
The milk carafe in itself has automatic cleaning for easy cleaning of the milk carafe. In case some of the milk is left you can directly keep it back in the refrigerator. If you prefer drinking almond milk coffee then that too is assured with De’Longhi machines.
2 Shot Espresso=1 Brewing Cycle
Have you ever waited for hours at a café while your coffee is being brewed? Then, you can relate to the pleasure of sipping a creamy cappuccino without the haste. The warmth of instant coffee is what you will experience if you take home this beauty. All the coffee makers of De’Longhi prepare 2 flawless cups of coffee in a single brewing cycle. Now, how amazing is that?
Nothing excites me more than receiving trustworthy, round-the-clock customer service. I am told that in the domestic market, Orient Electric has a well-organised distribution network covering over 1,00,000 retail outlets and a strong service network with reach in 320 cities. They spoke about their commando technician team so that in case of any issue, service can be provided on-site in minimum time. I was definitely intrigued.
Get in line to get your hands on this incredible invention which might soon go out of stock! This is what I suggest after hearing the words of the speakers at the event, who said that De'Longhi products are actually pre-booked for the next two months! So, what are you waiting for, coffee lovers.
