The Lavazza Deséa coffee machine is your delicious caffeine route to software success


It’s been said programmers are machines that turn caffeine into code. So, for the best software it stands to reason you need the best espresso coffee machine. Lavazza’s Deséa coffee machine, using the A Modo Mio collection, may well be your key to producing your finest software.

Lavazza has been in the business since Luigi Lavazza himself opened his first store in Turin, Italy, in 1895. With sacks of coffee of different origins around him, Lavazza passionately experimented how the flavours blended together to create tastes that delighted his customers. The Lavazza story grew from these humble beginnings and today’s Lavazza coffee pods are the direct descendant of Luigi Lavazza’s work in combining blends some 126 years ago.

The Lavazza A Modo Mio coffee capsules provide high-quality coffee blends and aromas in vacuum-packed single-use capsules, containing up to 7.5g of ground coffee with freshness and quality maintained. The company offers a rich range of flavours that mix different coffee origins in delightful and delicious ways. There’s also a hot chocolate option.


Lavazza has five machines that use the A Modo Mio capsules, ranging from $99 to $349, with different specifications. This includes the Lavazza Jolie on the lower end and the Lavazza Smeg on the higher end. Fitting in the middle, at $259 with free delivery, is the Lavazza Deséa, a one-touch machine that caught iTWire’s attention for its excellent set of features and automation - this is, after all, a technology site. The Deséa is the quietest of the range too.

The Deséa has four different coffee settings and five different milk texture settings, an intuitive touch interface with acoustic feedback, adjustable cup rack height, milk frothing functions, an empty water tank alert, used capsule drawer alert, and electronically controlled coffee temperature.


It measures 145mm x 380mm x 280mm, weighs 4.5kg, and runs at 1500W power. It has an automatic nine-minute shut-off. It does not exceed 43 dB of noise. It also ships with an iconic Lavazza glass mug.

The result is awesome coffee, with awesome tastes and scents. iTWire found it to be flavoursome, delicious, and energising. For coffee lovers, the Deséa is a great machine.

However, for technology buffs like all of us here at iTWire, it's also an awesome gadget. In our day jobs, we’re all about automation, simplification, efficiency, and the best ways to leverage technology to achieve our goals. That’s what Lavazza has brought to the Deséa too; for those like me who can manage virtual servers and cloud computing resources all day but really have no place in a kitchen, the Deséa is a welcome relief. The icons are logical, the operation is simple and straightforward, and you can prepare your recipes with a single touch.

I enjoyed the subtle sounds telling me my drink was ready and if anything needed attention. Ultimately, the Deséa was so nice to use it made the whole coffee-making experience and coffee drinking experience blend into one simple, seamless, relaxing event from start to finish.

The Lavazza Deséa is ordinarily $299 but is available now for $259 including free postage. It is available in black and white options.
