This place hasn’t been open that long, but it already has all the attributes of a great specialty café - @cafe_neutral_taiwan in Taipei is a must-visit spot for all coffee lovers. A minimalistic and sophisticated interior, with a neon sign - 'Booyah' – welcoming visitors and shining over the shiny espresso machine Dalla Corte XT in the Total White version. This professional coffee machine brings consistency and creativity in your cup, thanks to the exclusive manual flow control for each group. Making silky espressos, powerful cold brews and fruity filters, the coffee here is as serious as the aesthetic is cool. The baristas will be happy to explain their coffee selections, as well as which coffee is best suited to each brewing method. In the summer, spill outside and take up a seat in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows sipping on an iced latte! We’ll see where our dcaround will take us next week ☕

What makes our single-group commercial espresso machine Mina one of a kind, is her exclusive digital profiling and electronic flow control. Open the Mina App (free download on Apple Store and Google Play) and set up the machine: through the App’s intuitive design, you can access a whole range of adjustable features and your personal recipes. The iconic manual lever is one of Mina’s most fascinating characteristics. Pull it all the way down to start the profile you’ve set on the App, or freestyle your extraction by lowering it in five steps to control the flow manually: our exclusive integrated DFR system has one hundredth of a millimeter precision – or as we like to say it, it can divide a single water drop into four! Create infinite extraction profiles, enhance acidity or sweetness and adjust the recipes to your taste☕

A message echoes in our homes at this critical time, “Far but unified”. We can’t leave our homes, but we can all make a difference in the battle against the Coronavirus, even with the smallest act of thoughtfulness. Italy, in the first line, is putting a lot of effort in containing the Covid-19, but the number of hospitalized patients is high and growing by the minute. Medical professionals and health caregivers together with many, many patients are fighting and striving at this very moment. For this reason, we’ve decided to actively cooperate: the Dalla Corte Team would like to thank these heroes and support them by donating part of our income for the months of April, May and June to the Luigi Sacco Hospital in Milan, one of the epicenters of this global emergency. Moreover, we are also doing our best to keep our co-workers safe and help the Country get back on its feet as soon as possible. The Covid-19 pandemic has brought each one of us to do our bit, but only by facing this situation together, we can truly overcome it. Together, everything is possible #MakeItBetterTogether

In Dalla Corte we stand by our exclusive 54mm portafilter, a non-standard measure that has always set us apart. Considering that most professional coffee machines come with the 58mm portafilter, what is the reason behind Dalla Corte’s decision to equip their espresso machines with the 54mm portafilter? There are two main elements behind the success of this particular dimension, specifically studied and designed by Paolo and Bruno Dalla Corte: pressure and pre-infusion time. During extraction, the water pressure in the brewing group is usually a standard 9 bar. This pressure brings the 54mm portafilter to weigh on the coffee cake about 30kg less compared to the 58mm portafilter! Secondly, in the 54mm portafilter the coffee cake will be taller than the one in a 58mm portafilter with the same amount of grounded coffee in the filter: the water will flow through the puck more slowly and with far less pressure, extracting more flavors and aromas for a richer espresso. The unique design of our portafilter is ideal for a cup of true Italian espresso and it has been installed on Dalla Corte’s professional espresso machines since the first Evolution in 2001. From the very beginning we always try to be a step ahead and #makeitbetter 📸credit @baristascornerofficial
