Welcome to the world of coffee with La Specialista Maestro, the manual coffee machine that'll transform you into a true coffee expert. Like an orchestra director, who activates each musician to play as one, La Specialista Maestro grants a perfect balance between the science of coffee and the art of texturing milk. Creating the best cup result from each type of bean and perfectly textured milk foam, La Specialista Maestro empowers you to master both the coffee and the milk preparation process. Prepare yourself for an authentic experience of exotic aromas and flavours!
Sensor grinding technology for consistent grinding texture. The grinding levels of La Specialista Maestro go from 1 (very fine) to 8 (coarse) and they have been defined in order to produce the perfect sized powder and the best aroma in your cup depending on the type of coffee beans you have chosen.
2 options for milk frothing: automatic for convenience, manual to live the barista experience.
6 pre-set recipes for an optimal cup within minutes.
Heating system for milk. A dedicated heating system for milk preparation ensures great steam performances.
Active temperature control. High performing thermoblock with controlled temperature system which ensures temperature stability when brewing. La Specialista Maestro offers up to 5 infusion temperature profiles to select, correspondent to a range of temperatures between 90º and 98º C.
Smart tamping station. After grinding, tamp in the filter holder by pushing the lever down. Once the correct pressure is added to the coffee ground, tamping will stop. It allows you to reach consistent pressure results on the dose, without having any mess of spilled coffee grounds on the machine and on the working area.
Dynamic Pre-infusion. Thanks to the exclusive and new Dynamic pre-infusion, La Specialista Maestro works by automatically adapting the pre-infusion length to the density of the coffee dose to ensure the entire surface of the pod is evenly and gently wet for an optimal extraction.
LatteCrema milk system. La Specialista Maestro not only offers an authentic manual experience, but also simplicity and convenience thanks to the fully automatic milk option.
