DeLonghi La Specialista is a relatively new product in the espresso machine market. There has been a lot of discussion around La Specialista, because people felt like DeLonghi’s machine looked too similar to it’s direct competitor the Breville Barista Express. We are going to to discuss more about that in a bit.

I personally love the Delonghi EC9335.M, regardless of the discussions around the uncanny similarity with the Breville Barista Express.

Delonghi EC9335 La Specialista is a great alternative, and a competitor of Barista Express. Our review shows why La Specialista is a great espresso machine.

La Specialista is a hybrid machine, placing between a semiautomatic and a fully automatic espresso machine. This means it gives you more control over the brewing process, compared to a super automatic. At the same time it includes advanced features that makes your espresso brewing experience incredibly easy. Not quite automated, but simple enough. I’ll show you what that means in a moment.

As we mentioned, a comparison example of a high end domestic hybrid is the Breville Oracle. The Barista Express is a great machine but La Specialista is at least on par with it, feature wise and in overall quality.

The Delonghi La Specialista EC9335.M is the best semi automatic espresso machine that Delonghi has to offer. New out in May 2019, it is the Ferrari of domestic espresso coffee makers. Read on to find out what makes this machines so great!
