  • – Smart Tamping. Tamping is a breeze with La Specialista. Simply pull the lever and watch it tamp the ground coffee at the right pressure. Better yet – you don’t have to remove the portafilter once you’re done, enjoying a mess-free experience. 
  • – Dual Heating System. Two independent heating systems make up the DeLonghi La Specialista. The first is a thermoblock for extracting coffee and the other for frothing or steaming milk.
  • – Advanced Latte System. This espresso machine truly does it all! It offers cafe quality lattes and cappuccinos by ensuring they obtain the right milk texture. AND, for added convenience, it’s designed with a separate hot water spout to brew up an authentic Americano.
