DeLonghi La Specialista Prestigio Overview
There’s very little wait time with the La Specialista Prestigio — think of no additional heat-up time and a 1 second quick start before the machine immediately starts grinding. Simply put, this machine is perfect for the busy household that also wants to experiment with latte art and extractions when the time is right.
Features and Performance
The La Specialista Prestigio has a lot going on. To give you a sense of what this powerful machine can do, we will separate its features by steps: preparing, brewing, and frothing. For preparing, the Prestigio has sensor burr grinding technology that ensures consistent grinding and dosing. Then there’s the smart tamping feature for ease and less mess, as everything is done in one place.
For brewing, the Prestigio gets started with dynamic pre-infusion, which alters the length of pre-infusion dependent on the puck’s density. There also is active temperature control that picks one of three temperature profiles best suited for your coffee’s roast.
As for frothing, the Prestigio offers a LatteArm steam wand for perfect milk texture for café quality lattes and cappuccinos. The machine’s Dual Heating System also means you don’t have to wait between brewing espresso and frothing your milk.
Why You Should Get It
The De’Longhi La Specialista Prestigio can be whatever you make of it. On one hand, the machine is easily programmable and quick to use: meaning, even as you rush out of the house in the morning, you can enjoy café-quality drinks on your way. But, with dynamic pre-infusion and a LatteArt arm, you can also become your own barista in the very comfort of your home, discovering new extraction times and practicing the latest latte art trends. The Prestigio gives you, as the user, more control when you want it, and takes over when you don’t.
