The Rise of Quality Coffee at Home

Enjoying skillfully crafted coffee no longer requires a trip to your local coffee shop. Nowadays, you can have a personal barista right in your home, ready to make your perfect cup the moment you wake up. This individualized service doesn't refer to an actual barista at your disposal but rather a fully automatic espresso machine that caters to your specific taste.
The Rise of Quality Coffee at Home
De'Longhi's Commitment to Quality
De'Longhi's automatic coffee machine is more than just a beautiful addition to your kitchen counter. This brilliant appliance is engineered to coordinate multiple variables within the brewing process, creating your perfect cup of coffee at the touch of a button. Not only is it smart, but it’s also a great listener, and will remember everything you tell it!

The rise of quality coffee at home is a growing trend amongst consumers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, coffee drinkers responded to coffee shop closures by sharpening their own barista skills. As an example, studies conducted by Toluna in 2020 showed a 72% increase in interest in espresso, plus a 60% increase in espresso consumption in the United States. The cultural shift from experiencing espresso out-of-home to in-home was also reflected in coffee machine sales, which saw an impressive 53% increase that year alone.

So if you're on the fence about investing in your own at-home barista, know that you're not alone in this exciting venture into coffee making. Here are some of the main takeaways you can enjoy from brewing coffee at home.
Price
If you do a simple cost analysis of what you spend at coffee shops per week, the results may surprise you. An average of two coffees per day can cost a household roughly $50 a week. And depending on your personal coffee consumption, your average weekly expense at cafés could ultimately pay for a machine within 3 to 6 months. So while the experience of visiting a café is irreplaceable, how much you could potentially be saving by investing in equipment can be convincing enough. When in doubt, do the math and weigh your options.
