Tastes like it’s barista made!
We have had the Maestosa for about 5 weeks now and absolutely love it. I literally go to sleep at night looking forward to my morning coffee. We purchase our beans from our local cafe and after adjusting the grind and a few other settings, we now enjoy the taste of our local cafe coffee at home. It also creates the perfect creamy milk just like barista made. We love that we have the choice of the 2 bean hoppers which means we can enjoy a different coffee in the afternoon than we do in the morning. We make sure we clean all the components thorou...ghly once a week which is very simple & takes about 10 minutes, it’s well worth it to get the consistent great tasting coffee. We have made our own custom coffees through the app although the coffees that are programmed by default are amazing too, our favourite is the Latte Macchiato. An interesting fact, the Maestosa is man made rather than by machine which is very cool knowing that a person has actually built it. Ooh and another thing, our 2 year old loves the baby-chinos which we customised to his very own profile. Although it is an expensive purchase, it is such a great investment and looks great in the kitchen too. We can’t speak highly enough of the Maestosa.
I love our new Maestosa machine. After our in-home barista service, I learnt even more about the machine and its capabilities. My only disappointment was that we were promised a gift pack upon purchase of the machine, which was given to us but was short of the items promised. I understand the gift pack was a bonus, however, it was still disappointing.
Still love the machine though !!
Purchased in September 2019.
Truly a Wonderful Taste Experience
What an absolutely wonderful coffee machine! I'm so impressed. This machine makes every kind of coffee you could ever ask for plus it makes hot milk, iced coffees or chocolate and hot chocolate! This machine is very easy to use, the only thing you have to worry about is picking what kind of coffee you'd like to drink. The machine itself will do everything for you, it will show you each step it takes from grounding the beans to frothing the milk.
It's very easy to care for and clean, what impressed me the most about this particular machine is th...
Dont know how I have lived without this machine, beautiful coffee every time no matter what recipe we use.
Quick to heat up.
Great how we can use two different beans just choose in menu which one you want to use
Very clear screen and very easy to navigate and my kids love the app as they can make drinks from another room.
Very happy overall cannot speak highly enough of this machine.
Luxury coffee experience
I fell in love with this coffee machine initially attracted by the sleek made in Italy design and manufacturing, then I had the change to try one of the numerous coffees that can be delivered in one touch and immediately decided to buy the machine. To my humble opinion, there is no comparison with other domestic coffee machines in the market. This machine goes above and beyond.
Questions & Answers
How doe this compare to the De'Longhi Primadonna S Evo? Why is this worth so much more?
The differences on Maestosa to our other machines starts from the way it is built and the materials used to build and goes all the way to electronic and guided control of the machine.
There are only a team of 20 very skilled Maestosa builders who create a machine from start to finish using state of the art tools. The machine is built of stainless steel and glass so it looks stunning on the kitchen bench.
We then have adaptive grinders that are controlled electronically and adjusted through the touch screen for a more guided and accurate experience. This also ensures that the changing the grind will take place without having to grind beans. There are 2 grinders that work separately for your choice of different fresh beans in each hopper. Also the grinder blades have changed to be larger and closer to a commercial experience, ensuring the accuracy of grind brew temperature is even more consistent than our other machines. This is very noticeable in the look and taste of the pour.
This is also the first fully automatic machine that allows you to change the temperature as per the recipe and save it to a profile without effecting the other recipes, so you can have different coffees at different temperatures according to your personal choice saved in your profile.
The whole experience using the machine is more guided as the screen prompts you to do what's required whether in a recipe or the settings.
The Thermal Milk carafe has a stainless surround to keep the majestic look of the machine and allows you to create two coffees by levering the milk arm over to your coffees and placing a cup under each spout of the coffee and milk.
Ease of filling the milk and water is even more awesome on this machine as you have ports that you can open without having to remove the milk carafe or water tank even allowing you to fill during a recipe.
Please dont hesitate to ask more questions.
How does the Flat White taste? How does the CappuccinoMix compare to the Latte? They look similar in the photos.... is it simply a different name? How is the milk foam...? Can the automatic (1 button ) make it as stiff as whipped egg whites?
Could anyone please explain the self cleaning? And if anyone has had to Descale! How many coffees, weeks or months before that was required? How long before you need to change the water filter on the Maestosa?
Im trying to get an overall comparison to the Jura machines (z8) which looks inline but more work and expense due to filters (purportedly required changed after 2-3 weeks on average), special Jura only cleaning products. Looking to grasp a true understanding of the ease of use in regards to the cleaning... I fail to see ease of use if I need to use special products and devices to clean after every milk coffee made....
I would appreciate any guidance a DeLonghi Maestosa owner could impart?
All the coffees are able to be customised, so u can make it just as u like it. The milk foam is thick and wonderful. The machines clean themselves after each coffee, or batch of coffees. Haven't had to descale yet but have been shown how, easy peasy !! I was also looking at the Jura machines and decided on this one and am very happy !! U sound like you need to go to a large store and get the machine run down from either a Delonghi rep or knowledgable staff member.
Thank you Happy Customer for your reply and initial review. May I ask, if they (DeLonghi) have answered your query on the missing items on the Bonus Gift Package? That too would disappoint me, if all items that were purported to be included were not!
I will indeed need to drop by for an in-depth demo so I can see.... unfortunately it will be many weeks until a time that I can, so was hoping to get some real world users to share their, non marketing department hype experiences and views.
I thank you once again for your rapid response and feedback...
