De’Longhi DC514T…

DeLonghi-01Aside from the best clothing, jewelry, food and culture what else does Italy do better than the rest of us? No idea? maybe you’re just tired so go take a break and sip a cup. Oh, of course… it’s Coffee!

In the mornings I’m usually a French Press girl because it’s quick and delicious plus the size is just right for one. For dinner parties or gatherings though, a coffee maker is a must. Unfortunately, mine recently died so off to the Internet I went…

DeLonghi-02I did a lot of research and finally settled on “De’Longhi”, specifically the “De’Longhi DC514T 14-Cup Programmable Drip Coffeemaker”. After a few months of use I have to say I’m really happy (and pretty wired!) This thing makes a great cup! It did take a while to break in – by that I mean it seemed to take a few dozen pots to “flavor” the machine. I can’t really say why but eventually the coffee got better and better with use. I read a lot of reviews on this model which were mixed but I’ve got only good things to say. Overall, a very good buy.
