  • The primary design challenge was to create an automatic domestic coffee machine to replicate a cafe bar at home and meet changing consumer trends - an increase in cold coffee consumption and the popularity of non-dairy milks. Maintaining De'Longhi's Italian styling and fully automatic coffee machine innovation is key, and the Eletta Explore must be instantly recognised as more than an automatic fresh bean coffee machine - a multi-beverage solution. Lastly, a target towards a younger demographic, intuitive and simple to use, but with additional functionality to cater for coffee on-the-go without compromising on taste.

  • Eletta Explore is a compact and stylish home cafe bar. Featuring the revolutionary new LatteCrema Cool system to deliver creamy and refreshing cold milk foam, the machine can deliver up to 42 one-touch recipes. The simple and modern design, touch screen and coloured recipe icons appeal to a slightly younger demographic who are in touch with the latest coffee trends. The new friendly tone of voice and user interface is intuitive and engaging, lifting the experience. The added lift tray and To-Go function allows for larger mug sizes, while proportioning the recipe to maintain the same great coffee taste.

  • Eletta Explore is an innovative new product positioned in the mid-level price point of the automatic coffee machine market. The machine leverages existing premium core technology and innovation seen throughout the range to ensure a commercially viable product, but with exciting new and unique features at a more accessible price point for consumers. The addition of LatteCrema Cool and To-Go functions offer a new proposition to consumers, allowing them to replicate a cafe experience at home, while also allowing De'Longhi to cater to new target audiences.

  • LATTECREMA HOT & COOL LatteCrema Hot & Cool consistently textures creamy velvety milk foam at the ideal temperatures for deliciously hot coffees or refreshingly cool drinks. Tested to dairy and popular plant-based milk to enjoy silky smooth milk every time. INTUITIVE COLOUR DISPLAY Personalise to your taste with a colour 3.5" TFT display and soft touch menu clusters. Personalising and selecting the perfect coffee has never been so easy and intuitive, with step by step guidance. Utilise user profiles and save your favourites for quick and easy access. TAKE YOUR COFFEE TO GO The unique new To-Go function knows how to fill your Mug to Go to maintain the same great taste no matter the size. There are 3 sizes of coffee to choose from, up to 16oz (475ml), and thanks to the liftable tray mugs up to 16cm high can be accommodated. FRESHLY GROUND, EVERY TIME Simply add your favourite coffee beans and the integrated grinder and brewing unit will extract the perfect aroma and flavor for your coffee, effortlessly and consistently. EASY TO CLEAN AND MAINTAIN Automatic rinsing and prompted cleaning cycles, removable and dishwasher-safe parts make maintenance a breeze and ensure longevity and great tasting coffee.
