Coffee makers history

Road to quality

A unique story, based right from the start on the continuous search for exclusive technologies: from the first "Bar" line, launched in 1990, to the latest models of traditional espresso machines or the sophisticated super-automatic machines, or the models developed in partnership with Nespresso. The De'Longhi story is a fascinating world of little gems born out of our enthusiasm for coffee, with the aim of always offering the consumer something better... every day!
