Making coffee has rapidly evolved over the last few years. Different flavours, different methods and different coffee makers are introduced almost every day. With all these developments, more and more people have the freedom to choose their own flavours or create their own coffees by themselves.

Perfect for Cappuccino and Latte

The De’Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Plus has an detachable milk frother which makes a very taste cup of cappuccino. I recently bought a Lattisima and I am really impressed by the milk frother. It makes a perfect cappuccino and latte. Now, I don’t even go to coffee shops anymore, I just make my coffee in the morning and put it in a warm mug and bring to work. You can actually make an amazing milky coffee without the barista training and it is guaranteed to be just as good.

I love the Nespresso capsules

It utilizes premium Nespresso capsules that give the ultimate convenience especially for people who are beginners at coffee making and for those who want top quality coffee but do not have the luxury of time to create them. The coffee pods or capsules by Nespresso produce consistent and authentic flavours.

There are over 16 blends for you to choose from, all of them are unique and tasteful and are specifically designed to suit all types of tastes, for all types of people. This capsule system lets you have the ultimate Nespresso Lattissima Plus & Lattissima Pro espresso experience without the added fuss in a just a short amount of time.

The Lattissima makes perfect crema

All coffee enthusiasts and connoisseurs all know that the key to really good coffee is in extracting that perfect crema from the coffee beans or pods. Well, the Nespresso Lattissima Plus’ extraction system features a powerful 19 bar pressure that does an excellent job of getting you the ultimate espresso in every single cup.

The perfect crema ensures a smooth finish and smooth flavours in the coffee. It also helps in binding all the flavours together and creating the perfect coffee mixture. A flawed extraction system with insufficient pressure will result in a weak coffee and an unpleasant coarse crema texture.

Patented Instant Froth Dispenser

Another feature that makes the Nespresso Lattissima Plus extra special is the De’Longhi exclusive and patented Instant Froth Dispenser (IFD) that gives you the perfect milk froth at the touch of a button. The removable milk carafe has a capacity of 0.35 ml to add to your milky drinks such as cappuccinos and lattes.

Complementing their tech-savvy and futuristic theme, the Nespresso Lattissima Plus integrates technology in their coffee making system by having illuminated buttons that automatically creates any of the following drinks: cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso or long coffee. You can personalize any of your drinks by having different proportions of milk and coffee depending on your preference.

The EN750 Nespresso Latissima pro version comes with a sensor touch display and 6 pre-programmed drinks

Heating up only takes 40 seconds

One of the best and newest features that the Nespresso Lattissima has is their thermoblock function. The thermoblock function is the perfect solution for your morning rush or at any time you’re in a rush because this technology enables the machine to heat up in as short as 40 seconds, serving your coffee in literally a minute.

Energy-saving auto turn off

Besides the thermoblock function, there is also an energy-saving function which is very efficient and economically beneficial since heaters of any kind usually take up the largest chunk in energy consumption. So with this function you are not only saving money but you are also being environmentally-friendly.

Clean your milk carafe with one button

As if the Lattissima do not have enough convenience to offer, it also comes with an adjustable drip tray, a cup warmer, and a button that cleans up your milk carafe automatically. The adjustable drip tray can accommodate different sized coffee cups and glasses.

The removable milk carafe can be cleaned by the simple pressing of a button. To make cleaning easier, there is a built-in small container with the machine that collects used capsules so all you have to do is throw it out.

It is sleek and compact

Factoring in all the features this coffee maker has, you would think that this is a gigantic machine like the ones you see in coffee shops but you would be shocked that its dimension is only 31.9 cm x 16.7 cm x 25.3 cm and weighs only 4.5 kg. It also has a black glossy finish which makes it very sleek and compact. It would fit in and look amazing in any kitchen, as well as not taking up too much storage area.

It is a high-end coffee machine

As for the pricing, compared to other coffee makers, it is in the high-end range but given all its features, the price is definitely worth it. You also have to take into account that the Nespresso coffee pods and blends are more expensive than the normal ground coffee beans so it is an additional cost.

It comes with some freebies

Both the plus and pro versions come with some freebies. There is a Nespresso Welcome Kit that will help you in setting up, all the necessary information, and troubleshooting instructions. De’Longhi will also provide a free pack of Nespresso coffee capsules in all 16 blends.

Things to look out for

There are important things to take note when you buy the machine however, like read carefully the instructions since the Lattissima can be complicated to use and there are a lot of functions that may be overwhelming. It may take time to learn about everything this coffee maker is capable of and to modify some functions to your preference.

Also, some parts need to be in a specific position attached to the machine otherwise it will malfunction or will not deliver perfectly, for example the nozzle that produces steam to the milk frother has to be attached at a specific angle. So, once again read the manuals and instructions carefully when re-assembling the product.

Conclusion

All in all, the De’Longhi Nespresso Lattissima Plus is guaranteed to fulfil all your coffee dreams and needs. It is definitely one of the best of its kind and you will not regret having this machine in your kitchen. You can also buy this as a present for a loved one and rest assured that you will become an instant favourite, just like the coffee produced by this coffee maker.
