“The Arte is the perfect starter machine for anyone keen to get into barista coffee-making at home,” enthuses Craig Simon, of Criteria Coffee. “I love the simplicity of this machine. It focuses on quality fundamentals and comes at a reasonable price. It’s light, it’s small, and it makes great coffee.” Craig is referring to De’Longhi’s recently launched La Specialista Arte, a manual machine designed to provide an authentic barista experience for the home user. And according to the multi-award-winning barista champion, the Arte delivers on this perfectly.
