We partnered up with De'Longhi to find a machine that makes awesome coffee at home, and isn't overly complicated. The De'Longhi La Specialista Prestigio is an all-in-one grinding, brewing and steaming solution, giving you freshly ground beans on demand, and the perfect extraction for your espresso, long black, flat white, latte, cappuccino, piccolo, macchiato .... or any milk-based coffee you like to drink, with an easy-to-use steam wand. We've tested it out and it has our tick of approval for a great home espresso experience.
As part of this awesome package, we are shipping you a premium home espresso machine! The deposit is a one-off payment towards owning your machine, and after your 12 month membership is complete, the machine becomes yours. If you return your machine before 12 months, your deposit will be retained to cover a cleaning fee.
For the first 12 months we own the coffee machine however after you have completed your 12 month membership we will sign the title over to you. If well-cared for, your machine should give you years more of great espresso.
Everything you need to get started, including your first delivery of coffee + a little extra to season the grinder, a reusable cup, a counter knock box (an absolute essential), a welcome letter with membership details, and a quick start guide.
After you sign up and pay your deposit, we'll send you a link to set up your weekly direct debit. From the date of set up, it will recur revery 7 days, and you're welcome to select that day yourself.
750g of beans will make you just over 2 cups a day, which is the average amount a household of 2-3 coffee drinkers goes through. If, like us, you can happily smash 3-4 cups of coffee a day, you may want to look at 1kg - or, if you're anticipating a lower consumption 500g. The good news is you can change your quantity at any stage throughout your membership (and we'll adjust your fee accordingly) as you get to know your coffee needs better.
You can pause your coffee deliveries if you need to (perhaps a holiday?) however your weekly payments cannot be paused. That simply means that at the end of your 12 months your machine will be paid off, and any outstanding deliveries will continue.
We've created a unique and premium specialty blend for home espresso extraction, which will be delivered as part of your subscription. You're welcome to use your membership discount to buy all your other favourites items online such as chocolate or chai, or to try our rotating Single Origin Coffees.
You certainly can. If you’re not happy with the performance of your machine and coffee, you can return with no further obligations. However, if you are happy with it (and we think you will be!) and stay on for a full 12 months, the machine is yours.
We will provide you with a support contact for any troubleshooting issues, and of course you will be fully covered by the 2 Year Manufacturer's Warranty. No regular servicing will be required; we'll provide you with tips & advice to keep your machine in perfect working order.
For now, the Gold Membership is exclusive to The Espresso Club™ but stay tuned for new Membership packages coming soon... and if you'd like to get a coffee subscription, check out our subscription coffees.
At this stage we don’t offer a machine only subscription. Our All Time Espresso Blend has been specifically developed for De’Longhi home machines and we think you’ll love it. If at any point you’d like to stop receiving coffee deliveries and membership benefits, you have the option to purchase your machine outright.
Once you have reached the end of your 52 week subscription, you’ll have the option to stay in the club and continue receiving coffee every four weeks at a discounted rate, starting from $9 / week, with all your membership benefits and perks. Plus, we’ll transfer over the ownership of your machine over to you!
