DeLonghi, the market leaders in automatic coffee machine is launching an impressive new range of fully automatic coffee machines, designed to be the most consumer friendly yet! As its name suggests, the Perfecta range is a class act from start to finish, with sleek good looks and a host of easy to use features.

No matter how you enjoy your coffee – short, medium or long, at a piping hot temperature or not so hot, with either a strong or extra mild aroma – the Perfecta allows you to customise your cuppa with its user-friendly digital controls. Making a mouth watering cappuccino is as simple as placing the cup under the nozzle and selecting cappuccino on the digital display, while turning the central knob to adjust temperature and aroma intensity. Its froth regulating function also allows you to control the amount of froth dispensed, from creamy froth for cappuccinos to hot milk. With no coffee task unmanageable for the Perfecta, it’s like having a barista in your own kitchen!

Not only is the Perfecta easy to use, but it’s even easier to maintain. It performs its own automatic washing cycle. The machines also come equipped with a digital display that records how often the machine is used and de-scaled, ideal for maintenance and servicing.

Additional features include cup warming plate, removable drip tray, silent integrated coffee grinder with 13 grinder settings, patented thermoblock to ensure constant temperature and automatic shut off.
