For many even a National Coffee Day is not enough to do justice to that liquid gold known as coffee? It can be a nearly mystical if not spiritual experience – from the smell of the beans and the sound of the sweet nectar filling the cup to the delightful aroma and wonderful taste as it slowly trickles down the throat and brings the day to life? Some even boldly admit without apology giving it all up to become a Barista just to be closer to the one they love.
Well, there is no need to take such drastic measures any longer with the Magnifica S Cappuccino Smart from De’Longhi. Based in Treviso, the company has studied the best of the Italian espresso machines and packed them into a home brewing system that promises the perfect java reward. Retailing for $1,299.99, it may seem a bit pricey but think of how much money you will save by brewing your own cup of perfection at home morning, noon and night.
It is a stunning edition to any kitchen. Lean and sleek, its Italian-inspired design beckons, “turn me on and I will turn you on to great coffee.” Toss out the little plastic cups, open the top and pour in real coffee beans. The anticipation builds as a stainless steel burr grinder with 13 adjustable settings efficiently grinds them to ensure maximum freshness.
Not really a brewing whiz? No problem, because De’Longhi’s patented one-touch Automatic Cappuccino System and easy-to-use Select & Brew control panel take all the guess work out of coffee making. Each cup is individually brewed to the perfect temperature, strength, richness and density, no matter what beverage being prepared. And this smart system knows that it is all about that foam. With its integrated LatteCrema system, the Magnifica produces long-lasting foam at the touch of a button, complete with the auditory pleasures of frothing adding to the gustatory anticipation.
De’Longhi seems to have thought of everything to make a system that supplies more than an ordinary cup of java. There is a water filtration system to deliver pure, fresh water and a separate, removable milk carafe with an auto-clean function for the spout. No milk actually comes in contact with the machine for an extra layer of health and wellness. Two height-adjustable nozzles keep the liquid and foam from intermingling before it is time. A handy double shot feature doubles the amount of coffee and milk – just like ordering at a coffee bar.
The Magnifica is simply magnificent, helping the most ordinary days take on a new appeal through the magic of a perfect cappuccino, macchiato, latte or espresso every time. Each cup is customized to suit the users particular taste, and is always served at the perfect temperature. Why, it even makes a regular cup of coffee or hot chocolate taste better. These creations are masterful works of art that offer a trip to coffee heaven and a taste of Italy right in your own home.
