Ciao bello coffee lovers! Now, if you love the benefits of coffee, and in particular, love experiencing the very best coffee you can possibly taste, then you should read this Diletta Bello espresso machine review.
Diletta is known for creating some of the best espresso machines on the market, and I must say, they’ve definitely outdone themselves this time.
So, read on below as I give you my honest thoughts on this interesting machine to help you with your purchasing decisions.
Operating the Machine
Before I start, I must say this machine isn’t easy to operate, especially if you are a beginner.
However, if you are a newbie when it comes to espresso makers, that doesn’t mean that you can’t learn. After a few tries and reading the instructions, you should be able to get a good handle on it.
This machine has no touch screen, buttons, or other easy-to-use features that other espresso machines have; that’s because the best way to make high-quality coffee how you want it is to do it manually!
But, I found that it does make it a bit more difficult to use. All there is on the machine is a little power on/off button, a few indicator lights, and some switches for changing the steam and water pressure.
Another potential negative is that it doesn’t make coffee instantly. It does take time to use it (about 15 minutes to make a coffee), but the result is more than worth it.
Cleaning is one of the worst parts of owning any coffee machine. Unfortunately, it’s a necessary task if you want your coffee to taste great for longer.
Every day, I would recommend that you backflush the group head (with water daily and using espresso coffee machine cleaning powder weekly). After that, just wipe down the outside of the machine, and you’re good to go.
Thanks to the design of the machine, you don’t need to descale it, which is a massive relief, as it is one of the most boring jobs out there.
I found that once I did it a few times, the cleaning was quite easy, especially for such a substantial machine.
I think this is probably one of the best-looking machines out there. The mix of old-school design and modern technology makes it stand out anywhere, whether it is in a cafe or the corner of your kitchen.
There are three different colors available: white, black, and stainless steel. Although the other colors look great, I tried out the stainless steel, and in my opinion, it’s the most beautiful one.
However, with the stainless steel one especially, I had to clean it constantly to wipe away the ugly fingerprints I’d put on it every day while making my coffee. Because of this, the other colors might be a better idea to go for to save you time constantly cleaning it.
Once you’ve made coffee with this machine, you’ll struggle to switch back to another one. It can create coffee that any barista would be proud of, and with a bit of patience, anyone from beginners to experts can learn to use it.
In all honesty, I think that the taste is only beaten by artisan coffee shops in Italy. So, if you don’t want to take a plane to Italy every morning, this machine is a convenient choice!
Okay, so this isn’t the cheapest machine on the market. But you need to remember this isn’t any old coffee maker.
Each machine is handcrafted in Italy by experts, using only the best materials to provide the highest quality coffee experience possible.
So, if you’ve got money to spare and want one of the best coffee machines on the market, it’s a no-brainer.
