UPPER SADDLE RIVER, NJ— DeLonghi America is capitalizing on the continuing coffee craze with a high-end assortment of new machines created especially for the passionate espresso and coffee drinker. The company also is unveiling a selection of new air fryers.
The DeLonghi LaSpecialista is an elegantly designed, professionally-inspired espresso machine that enables users to precisely handcraft espresso beverages. The unit provides upscale functions, including active temperature controls, dual heating system, sensor grinding technology, smart tampering and an advanced latte system.
The company also is spotlighting an All-In-One Combination unit that is capable of brewing two drinks at once, including regular coffee on one side and espresso drinks on the other. The digital touch screen makes the machine easy to use, while the patented Flavor Savor Brew System extracts maximum flavor and aroma for a robust and rich coffee experience, the company said. The 2-in-1 Crema Filter Holder can accommodate both pods and ground coffee.
Another featured coffee machine is the Stilosa, which has a 15-Bar Italian Pump that creates the optimal pressure to extract a single or double espresso according to espresso brewing standards. The unit includes a Professional Portafilter with a special design for a better grip and a separate tamper set up. The advanced milk frother mixes steam and milk to create a rich, creamy froth for evenly textured lattes and cappuccinos.
DeLonghi is introducing a sleek and compact automatic bean-to-cup espresso machine, the Dinamica Cappuccino, which can craft a latte, espresso, cappuccino, drip style coffee, cafe latté and TrueBrew Over Ice. An integrated Latte Crema System automatic frother allows the user to create rich, long-lasting foam with soy, almond, rice or cow’s milk. The Dinamica features an adjustable steel burr grinder with 13 settings to control the grind and strength; a “My Menu” button helps users to customize favorite drinks; additional beverages can also be accessed quickly and easily via the drink menu button.
The company is also spotlighting two new air fryers: the Rapid Crisp Air Fryer with 360-degree view features a surround viewing window with 360-degree visibility inside, eliminating the need to disturb the cooking process, while a durable hinged lid allows for simple, one hand use to remove the non-stick, 5-quart bowl.
