Presents premium drip coffee maker.
De’Longhi can now offer a complete coffee making portfolio to Australian consumers with the unveiling of a new premium drip coffee maker, the Clessidra (hourglass), at IFA in Berlin. De’Longhi also showcased its first semi-professional pump manual coffee machine, the La Specialista, and new premium fully automatic coffee machine, the Maestosa, at IFA.
“Drip coffee is making a comeback and it’s trendy again,” De’Longhi marketing director, Raniero Miccoli told Appliance Retailer.
“That’s why we think it is important for De’Longhi to re-enter this segment because it is now considered the ‘cool’ coffee. We wanted to do this with a product that really captures that rather than a traditional drip coffee maker.
“The clear point of difference with Clessidra is the placement of the water on top of the machine rather than on the back – it is the only drip coffee maker to do this. It also has a sensor in the water tank that controls the water temperature between 92 and 96 degrees Celsius.
“If the water temperature drops below this, the water will not dispense. This means the coffee will consistently brew at the right temperature – never too hot, never too cold. Once the coffee is brewed, the temperature is maintained at 40 degrees for 45 minutes.”
