It might resemble a classic filter machine, but the Clessidra is far more refined.
Rather than soaking the coffee grounds all at once, it uses mechanical pulses of water to mimic a manual pour-over method, and this makes a more intense taste and aroma.
The temperature and infusion time is also managed, which makes for far more continue outcomes.
Features Delonghi Clessidra Coffee Machine
There are many aspects of the Clessidra that set it apart from other filter coffee makers.
The hourglass design is amazing, and there is a big amount of exposed glass accented with sleek grey and chrome.
On top, the water tank has a removable lid that specs vents at the back to let any steam escape as the water heats, and quantity markings.
There is a capacity for up ten cups, which makes the Clessidra best for post-dinner coffee.
There are two techniques it uses to make coffee – top standard brew, and pour-over.
Each of these has a corresponding button, represented by what looks like a shower drips and spray.
When pressed in, each button illuminates.
What makes a pretty getting used to is that the keys protrude from the machine, and it primarily feels more natural to push them down the inwards.
Once the water in the tank gets the present temperature, it cascades down via the centre onto the ground coffee in a filter paper, which sits in a removable cone in the jug.
The cone itself is well-designed, with the handle to lift it out and a sprung, lever-oriented control device that opens when coffee is dispensed.
This means no drips on the worktop when it is removed from the carafe.

The Celessidra also comes with a shaped holder for the cone to sit in when it is not in use and a scoop for measuring out ground coffee.
