Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus Review

Overview

Nespresso has really raised up the bar with this machine. The Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus it comes with 2 patented systems that makes things a lot more convenient. One of them is the single touch hot milk system with which you can easily prepare latte or cappuccino. The second is the coffee capsule system that helps you to avoid the usual mess accompanying the normal brewing process.

Energy saving auto timer and unique sliding drip tray for accommodation of your latte cups, complement its innovative profile. An illuminated control panel guides you efficiently through the coffee or milk selection. Lastly the Lattissima Plus includes a welcome kit with Nespresso capsules to enjoy its benefits since the beginning.

At the bottom of the machine there is a removable tray with a metal top. When it is in place you can put on your favorite espresso mug. But if you need to put on your larger mug you can press in the tray and increase the available height. Over the first one there is an additional tray flush in the machine that serves as a pod collector. At the right side there is a milk container that also sits on a stable tray. Opening its tiny door you will find the machine’s descaling spouts.

On top of the machine you see 4 rubbery illuminated buttons. A regular espresso shot, a lungo shot, a cappuccino macchiato and a latte macchiato. The last two will be used when you have the milk container connected to the machine. At left of them you see the brew spigot where you insert the Nespresso pods that opens up by means of a lever.

Testing

Pouring water in the 30 oz. transparent container is possible by removing it or not. You better remove to not make a mess though. Reattaching it back is straightforward. We filled the milk container with milk up to half level. This amount you pour inside depends on how many cups you are going to make and not the type of froth. The machine will calculate this automatically. On top of the milk container there is dial which serves as an adjustment of the milk foam. When everything is setup we inserted the milk container in the machine opening. You will notice that the 2 macchiatto buttons that were initially off will start blinking. That means that the machine is ready to make milk.

Making a cappuccino is very smooth. After adjusting the milk container froth to the max we placed our favorite mug on the tray. Subsequently we opened the lever of the brew spigot to insert a Nespresso capsule. Coffee spigot and milk spigot were aimed into the mug. Last thing to do is to press the macchiatto button and enjoy the show!

Instantly the machine starts frothing the milk with phenomenal speed. Shortly starts brewing the espresso providing an amazing result. The foam, the crema and all the layering created as a piece of art. In a similar manner you can get the latte macchiatto. Only difference is the lower milk requirement, so you just turn the milk froth it at min level. The result was equally impressive! When finished just open the lever and empty the used pod.

There were only minor flaws that we observed. One was a dripping of water for many seconds, after cleaning of the machine, which can spoil the tray. The others are the tiny water container and pods which means more money spent for more coffee mugs.

Verdict

We are really amazed of the performance of this tiny jumbo. Although not the cheapest coffee machine in market, it has many traits that more costly competitors could only dream of. The Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus is a must have if you love your cappuccino or macchiatto perfectly prepared as in a stylish cafe bar. Although it is not only made for milk coffee, if you can afford that kind of money you can look for alternatives. Specifically if you prefer to grind your own beans and seek for premium quality coffee please have a look at the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT-741.
