DeLonghi KG89 Grinder

DeLonghi KG89 Grinder
Overall Rating: 84
A solid, inexpensive model with flat, stainless steel burrs that are great for getting a uniform grind size, the DeLonghi KG89 is a decent entry-level burr grinder. For our money, go with the DeLonghi Dedica instead.

DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300

DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM3300
Overall Rating: 93
If you’re shopping for an espresso machine, what’s the most important thing to you? If you’re like us, it had better pull a damn good shot. After that, it had better be reliable. With the DeLonghi Magnifica, done and done.

DeLonghi Prima Donna ECAM28465

DeLonghi Prima Donna ECAM28465
Overall Rating: 91
The DeLonghi Prima Donna ECAM28465 is an easy-to-use, super-automatic model that brews bean-to-cup beverages with the push of a button. Even easier, remove the milk container and store in your fridge until your next use.
About The Coffee Maven

Bryan De Luca

I'm Bryan but most people know me as The Coffee Maven. I grew up outside Boston, Massachusetts and received my Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry from Providence College. My first introduction to coffee was during my college days, when I used it as a source of caffeine to fuel late-night study sessions, but soon I became obsessed with the chemistry of coffee. How did changes to water temperature or contact time affect its taste? Why do beans from Africa taste fruity while beans from Indonesia taste spicy? I launched The Coffee Maven in February 2017 to explore these questions and help others brew their perfect cup. Welcome to my site, and thanks for reading!
