Classic quality, classic Italy.

In our generation of excessive modernisation and technological bombardment – it’s rare to find brands who are truly authentic and loyally support the beauty of tradition.  That is why our coffee machine is one of a kind!

As discussed plentifully on this blog – Italians certainly make coffee well. They perfected the coffee-making process that rewards the drinker with not only an enduring aroma of deliciousness, but a rich taste of Italian history through the quality of our coffee pods.

It’s therefore essential that you get your hands on our coffee machine – the Didiesse Frog Coffee Machine.


It is an ESE coffee machine (Easy Single Espresso) that comes in 14 amazing colours and prepares your coffee or espresso in an environmentally friendly manner.

It features a fast heat-up process (only 1 minute!) and this ensures that it saves electricity. It is extremely low maintenance and is a high quality product that has been smartly designed and manufactured in Italy.  The reason why this is environmentally friendly is because the ESE pods use no plastic or aluminium  and can even be disposed as a garden fertilizer!

It comes with a 24 month warranty and can be serviced at the repair centre in Cape Town.

Even though this product in our Lucaffe range doesn’t have caffeine – it has the most enchanting taste and aroma that you truly won’t mind in most decaf coffees.

Not only does decaf coffee give you the benefit of the taste of good Italian coffee, but it has been proven to have considerable health benefits. Decaf coffee has shown to prevent cancer, reduce the risk of diabetes and prevent the mental decline that occurs when we age.

This coffee is an authentic mix of Arabic beans that have been decaffeinated through an absolutely natural process. This has the best taste of coffee – just without the undesired effects of caffeine.

100% Arabica, 0.1 % caffeine

Gian Luca Venturelli Italian Coffee Roasting Company was founded in 1996 on the shores of Lake Garda (at Padenghe sul Garda), thanks to the passion and enterprise of Gian Luca Venturelli. The company grew rapidly, first at its facility in Roncadelle (Brescia) where, besides the equipment for roasting and grinding the coffee, innovative plant was installed for packaging the pods in paper, allowing the company to specialize in a way that would later prove to be a winner.

It’s an eternal fact that Italian coffee is the best form of coffee. Why?


It’s pretty evident that Italians have been passionate about espresso for hundreds of years and perhaps the the rest of us are just merely trying to ‘catch-up’.


It is undeniable that the passion, expertise and love is apparent in every delectable sip of Italian-made coffee – and it’s because they just get it. Italians have mastered the process of coffee-making and have therefore perfected the espresso.

Fun fact:

Ernesto Valente produced the first pump driven espresso machine in the 1960’s. This design concept remains the cornerstone for contemporary espresso coffee machines.



On the most part, Italians tend to drink coffee in its purest form – that being Espresso. Espresso is merely one short black shot of coffee and therefore gives you no chance to cover-up a poor espresso coffee with milk, cream or sweeteners. So Italians therefore take great care in delivering  the perfect, organic espresso.


Through every sip, us South Africans are merely the beneficiaries of hundreds of years of experience, expertise and this particular Italian passion for the perfect espresso.
