I used to drink coffee fives times a day back when I was still a barista. It was trimmed down to three cups when I became a mom and well, I was trying to be healthy. Of course, this healthy passion for coffee led me into wanting to drink not only the best coffee but to try different kinds of coffee as well. It also made me want to try coffee that is made through different brewing methods. I have a stovetop coffee maker, an electric coffee maker, a french press, and a pour over device to make pour over coffee. I’ve yet to own any mechanical device that automatically makes coffee.I know DeLonghi as one of the top brands when it comes to coffee machines. It is actually my dream to own one of their machines. I just had to be there at the launch of the DeLonghi Primadonna Elite.
Before the program started, peanutbutter♥ and I was able to try coffees made from their amazing machines at one side of the room. I had the Cafe Mocha and him the Cappuccino. The way the coffee were made were pretty impressive, all they had to do was press the button of the coffee of choice and voila! — the machines made it. And they made it well,mind you — my Cafe Mocha was excellent!
This is the kind of coffee machine I want at home — fully automatic and sleek. All you have to do is fill them up with beans and milk that’s enough for your coffee. I just wish I had the budget to buy one..heehee..
Anyway, the event started with a 2-hour program hosted by Suzi Abrera. Concept Specialist Inc.’s President, Joseph Hung, opened the program with a welcoming speech and succinct company’s background. He also thanked everyone who attended. He then introduced DeLonghi’s International Commercial Director for Asia Pacific and Americas, Paul Accornero.
Paul Accornero gave a brief background about DeLonghi Group. Afterwhich, he is joined on stage by Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo to unveil the Delonghi PrimaDonna Elite.
DeLonghi’s Regional Manager – South East Asia and Pacific, Vincent Cheng gave hands-on demonstration about the featured coffee machine of which local celebrities, Inah Estrada, Patty Laurel-Filart and Tessa Prieto-Valdes, participated. To cap off the program, Aicelle Santos performed a few songs. Towards the end of her set, she engages the crowd to sing with her
