“The Arte is the perfect starter machine for anyone keen to get into barista coffee-making at home. It’s light, it’s small, and it makes great coffee.” Craig Simon, owner of Criteria Coffee, is referring to our recently launched La Specialista Arte, a manual machine designed to provide an authentic barista experience for the home user.
Australia’s coffee scene is special, and that’s largely because it’s driven and epitomised by its specialty bean scene – a confluence of coffee professionalism and café culture – that is recognised globally for its high standards and quality.
But let’s back up a moment. What exactly is ‘specialty’ coffee?
Coffee is available in a variety of different forms to suit different coffee machines and coffee making preferences. It all starts with the coffee bean. Much like wine, the region where a bean grows impacts flavour and the amount of water, sunshine, fertile soil and the time from picking to roasting can all impact the final taste.
We’re spoilt for choice today – and no more so than when it comes to coffee. With a dizzying array of coffee styles already on offer, we now have a multitude of alternatives to cow’s milk to choose from. But do non-dairy alternatives make a perfectly rich, satisfying coffee? How can you make sure that your non-dairy coffee is as delicious as the dairy milk variety?
The ancient practice of alchemy was a blend of the beginnings of philosophy, magic and chemistry. Alchemists searched for a mysterious substance called the Philosopher’s Stone, that would transform base metals into gold. They also believed in the elixir of life – a magical potion that would bring health, wealth and immortality. At De’Longhi, there’s a magical potion we’re obsessed with. It’s called coffee, and there’s certainly an art and a science to making it well.

All Time Espresso is a rich and satisfying blend crafted especially for home espresso extraction. Perfectly balanced to be bold but refined, this blend has been developed with both taste and strength in mind, to deliver the all-time best coffee at home, every day.
This three-bean blend brings together diverse components to create a full-bodied coffee with layered complexity. In pursuit of the best possible home espresso, Industry Beans extended and tweaked the roast profiles of these coffees to allow for the extra solubility required to extract best with the lower dose and water pressure that comes with home espresso machines. You’ll taste the difference from your first shot of All Time!
As a black espresso, All Time offers an engulfing, caramel-like aroma and thick, indulgent crema. The sweetness continues through to a long dark chocolate aftertaste, a syrupy mouthfeel and subtle fruit qualities.
As a milk-based coffee, All Time is buttery, rich and sweet, with its added strength creating the perfect balance of creaminess and flavour.
Rose Street is sourced and roasted to create a full-bodied and satisfying blend that is smooth and sweet but has the strength and richness to cut through milk. This blend is perfect for those that like a strong, easy-drinking espresso and who enjoy the strength of traditional coffee flavour profiles, whilst maintaining the quality of premium specialty coffee.
