De’Longhi has partnered with artists and designers to create the De’Longhi Artista Series line of Perfecta Super Automatic Espresso Machines. Two machines from each of De’Longhi’s design partners will be featured in a week long auction.
A portion of the proceeds from each Artista Series Perfecta will go to Oxfam America. Oxfam America is an international relief and development organization working to save lives, help individuals to overcome poverty, and fight for social justice. All payments should be made through PayPal.
Once the auction has ended, the Artista Series Perfecta will be shipped to the winning bidder’s requested address as soon as payment has been cleared.
Below are all the machines that will be auctioned this coming October.
