Read the transcript for our Nespresso Lattissima Espresso Machine Overview video
Hi! This is the Lattissima. Nespresso and DeLonghi teamed up to bring us this wonderful one touch cappuccino maker. I'm just going to show you a couple of the features today.
The power button is on the back here. We do have it powered up already. It's a really compact unit, which is rare for a one touch. Part of the way they've achieved that is by concealing the water tank in the body of the unit. It holds 40 ounces, which is a lot for the Nespresso systems.
One of the great features about this machine is that it's entirely programmable, so you can do short pours, long pours, and any variety of latte/cappuccino combinations. Another nice feature of the Lattissima is that you can use this little unit right here in conjunction with this button to get instant hot water for anything you might need it for such as if someone in your family doesn't like coffee and they might just want tea on the spot. So that's a really great feature.
If you pull that off, you can put on what really makes this machine special, which is this milk canister. It holds 17 ounces of milk. You can keep it in your refrigerator, and whenever you are ready to brew cappuccino or espresso, you just bring it out. It's really easy. It just slides right on there. Once you get it into place, these two buttons will light up showing that you're ready to brew your milk and coffee drinks.
The Nespresso Lattissima system truly is one touch. Once you get that into place you just pull out the frothing wand. You have a nice little cup warmer up here so you have a cup ready to go. You just place it under both spouts and simply push the button.
You can't forget these. This is what makes the Nespresso work. That's what pops in there. Actually, you can froth the milk before it's even in there, as you can see, which is fantastic for people who are forgetful. You haven't ruined your drink.
This unit has 19 bars of pressure like all the Nespresso machines. You are going go get a beautiful espresso out of it with a crèma. As you can see, it just makes a gorgeous cappuccino instantly.
It has two thermal block units, so if I wanted to brew another one right away, which maybe I do since I messed up the first one, it's super easy. You just pop another capsule into the Nespresso Lattissima, keep your frothing wand in place, touch a button and you'll be ready to go right away.
The other nice feature on this machine is that you have three milk settings. That's this little leaver right here. So you can do just steamed milk, semi-froth, or a full froth like we're using right now to make a cappuccino.
