De'Longhi La Specialista

The La Specialista is meant to go head-to-head against popular semiautomatic espresso machines like Breville's Barista Express. What sets this machine apart is that it grinds beans into its portafilter. You also tamp the grounds without removing the portafilter. That translates to less mess -- and less wasted grounds, too.
