DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus Review
DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus is the best selling single cup coffee maker and espresso machine in one on Amazon.com for the Nespresso espresso and coffee capsules developed by Nestle Nespresso S.A.
Nestle was ground breaking when they developed Nescafe instant coffee. Nestle has redefined the single serve coffee market with their Nespresso coffee pods, filled with the best tasting and rich coffee of any single serve coffee maker.
DeLonghi has enjoyed a long history of producing high quality and affordable small kitchen appliances. This tradition has continued with their DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso Capsule System, which allows people to brew single serve coffee and espresso at home, using the Nespresso capsule.
DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima
- Patented single touch hot milk system.
- Heats water in just 40 seconds.
- Simply slide the water or milk tank onto front of the machine to make a perfect hot beverage.
- The clean button makes it easy to maintain.
- Convenient illuminated control panel buttons allow you to choose your favorite drink with ease, using 3 milk and 2 coffee selections.
- Patented coffee capsule system.
- Energy-saving with adjustable auto-off timer.
- Accommodates latte cups with the unique sliding drip tray.
Let’s be clear, all nespresso single serve coffee makers work basically the same, since they all use the patented Nespresso technology. The difference really is that some Nespresso machines only make lattes, while others make coffee and latte, some come with an attached milk frother and other do not, and the cost of the Nespresso coffee machine.
With the DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso Capsule System, you can now create restaurant-quality single serve espresso and coffee drinks at home with the touch of a button.
This automatic single serve coffee maker and espresso machine offers a range of features for fast and easy single cup coffees, lattes, cappuccinos, hot milk, and perfect frothy milk like you get from your favorite barista!
With Nespresso coffee capsules and the One Touch DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso System, this easy-to-use machine creates your drink right into a cup or glass, so there is no coffee carafe to clean.
It even features a self-cleaning function.
Lattissima Plus comes with a fully stocked welcome kit that includes Nespresso coffee capsules. The 9.76-pound unit measures a compact 12.59 by 6.69 by 10.23 inches (L x W x H).
How Does the DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima
The Lattissima Plus single serve coffee maker eliminates the mess and hassle of trying to measure the right amount of coffee or espresso for a perfect single serve hot beverage.
- Simply load a capsule with pre-measured coffee, latte or tea into the machine, then push the button.
- The machine reads the bar code on the capsule, so it knows the beverage you are making, and pre-sets the water level and temperature for your beverage.
- The machine spins the capsule at approximately 77,000 RPM (rotations per minute), and at the same time forces hot water through the capsule at the pre-determined temperature to produce a perfect hot beverage, unlike other single serve coffee makers.
- You have the ability to override the pre-set settings to make the beverage ideal to your cup size and taste. Maybe you use a larger mug, or you prefer a stronger or lighter cup or coffee or latte.
- The machine brews the beverage right into your cup, so there is no carafe to clean.
- Remove the water tank and replace with the milk tank to make perfect frothy foam or hot milk.
- After brewing is complete, the machine automatically ejects the capsules after 4 seconds into a used capsule tank, which can hold up to 10 used capsules.
One Touch Automatic System
The Nespresso Lattissima Plus single serve coffee maker easily prepares a perfect cup of coffee, latte or cappuccino. Simply slide the milk tank onto front of the machine and press a button.
Whether you are making a single serve coffee, latte cappuccino or other beverage, just add the pod, close the door and press the button. The One Touch Automatic System reads the car code and does the rest.
Intuitive Illuminated Controls
The Lattissima Plus comes with illuminated keys and automatic controls, which makes it easy to select the drink and setting you want.
The controls offer selections for cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso coffee, long coffee, or hot milk.
Personalize and Save your Favorite Drink Settings
Nespresso Capsule with Bar Code
Each Nespresso capsule has a pre-printed bat code that tells the machine what kind of drink is being made, the amount of water needed and temperature.
These settings can be over written by changing the settings before you brew the coffee.
Ready to Use in Just 40 Seconds
DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus features a thermoblock heating system, that includes a self-priming operation, which reduces heat-up time, so it’s ready for use in just 40 seconds.
This is better than Keurig, which takes up to 2 minutes to warm up the water, or the Tassimo, which takes up to 60 seconds to make a cup of coffee.
An auto power-off mode setting helps conserve energy. The machine automatically turns off after nine minutes from the last drink created. The setting can also be changed to 30 minutes or eight hours.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Keeping Lattissima Plus in top shape is easy thanks to the removable 30-ounce water tank, drip tray, and used capsule container. And with the Nespresso coffee capsule system, you won’t have to worry about cleaning up coffee grounds.
Comes in Three Colors to Suit your Style or Match Your Kitchen Decor
The entire process is simple. Just insert the pod and press one of the four buttons to get your drink. The machine does the rest.
Makes great espresso and cappacino and very easy to clean up. Recommended if you don’t have much time in the morning for a good espresso drink.
OMG is what I hear everytime our friend has coffee made from this machine.
The creamiest most delicious coffee ever!! Easy to use
Awesome little machine! Get some Torani syrups to go along with it and you’ll never need Starbucks again!
Mornings will never be the same. Best creature comfort I’ve ever purchased. So easy. So delicious. It’s a perfect cup of coffee to wake up to.
