De’Longhi is presenting its first semi-professional pump manual coffee machine, La Specialista, at IFA.

La Specialista has an integrated grinder and unique manual tamping system with a lever that applies the right amount of pressure – about 20kg. The machine also has two boilers to allow users to easily switch between coffee and milk. The TFT (thin- lm transistor) display enables users to adjust their coffee preferences.

De’Longhi says the Predictive Control Temperature guarantees an ideal brewing temperature of between 88 °C and 92 °C, while the 19-bar pump ensures an ideal brewing pressure of 9 bar – for a strong espresso or caffè crema.

For milk drinks, the AdvancedLatte System, makes it straightforward to create foamed milk or hot milk thanks to two steam wand settings. Simply set the froth regulating system and enjoy delicious milk coffee specialities as if prepared by a barista, De’Longhi says.

The company adds that an independent heating system ensures the correct frothing is made.
