De’Longhi Perfecta espresso machines have been called works of art and now the Italian company is actually turning their iconic espresso machines into canvases to benefit Oxfam America, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the fight against poverty.

The De’Longhi Perfecta Artista Series had internationally recognized artists, including Nicole Miller, Damien Correll and Mario Hugo, laser-etch original designs onto an extremely limited run of De’Longhi Perfecta espresso machines. So, if your morning coffee doesn’t bring you enough peace of mind, a contribution to fighting poverty and social injustice and an excellent cup of espresso just might. The auction runs from October 4-18.
