Be your own barista with the Gran Dama Avant by De'Longhi. You and your guests can enjoy delicious cappuccinos, lattes and macchiatos anytime. It's never been easier to create authentic Italian drinks with our patented milk container. Simply slide it onto the front of the machine, place a cup under the nozzle and press any of the one-touch buttons. The Gran Dama Avant does all the work for you! For the freshest results, the patented direct-to-brew system grinds beans instantly before brewing. With five coffee-strength settings from extra-mild to extra-strong, everyone gets their ideal flavor. And for those who prefer the taste of traditional drip coffee, this machine replicates the process with the unique long coffee function.
