Crew Review: DeLonghi PrimaDonna De Luxe Espresso Machine
We'll admit that we weren't deeply in love with DeLonghi's superautomatic espresso machines. For a long time, we felt like their grinders were on the louder side of the spectrum, their coffee wasn't quite hot enough and their automatic milk frothing was just a smidge shy of amazing.
But all of that changed a few years ago with the release of their new series of machines. Their coffee quality improved, their grinders toned down a bit and their automatic milk frothing reached that heavenly nexus between temperature and foam density that cappuccino dreams are made of. With their newest model, the PrimaDonna De Luxe, they've taken their recent functional improvements and wrapped it in a gloriously gleaming stainless steel case.
Featuring intuitive programming, a front loading water reservoir and optional one-touch cappuccino functionality, the PrimaDonna De Luxe is both flexible and refined. Watch as Gail guides us through all of its specs and then demonstrates both one-touch and standard cappuccino creation.
