Summary: I am a successful café' owner for twenty years now and I will tell you this makes a decent cup of espresso. While I will tell you pod machines will never out do freshness of grinding and brewing your own quality coffee, this comes close. If you are not a watered down, frugal K Kup user; this machine is for you. You can make Cap/Late' with very creamy foam! You can make a decent espresso timed to the pour of your liking!
Summary: Love our Lattissima Plus Nespresso! Have had other quality espresso makers in the past and this one is the best! It's easy to use and to clean and makes good-quality cappuccino as well as other espresso beverages. We rarely feel the need to visit our local coffee shop now--great option for home use.

Summary: I am giving my review on the product primarily to address the common question whether the coffee produced by the Lattissima is hot enough. To give you an idea of how hot I prefer my coffee, it needs to burn at least slightly to the touch. The answer is yes, but you will need to do some extra work. The extra work involves heating up your machine beyond just powering it on and waiting 40 seconds.
Summary: I've had this coffee maker for over 18 months now, and still absolutely love it. I was wondering if the novelty would wear off, but we still use it every day. A few people have complained in reviews about the coffee not being hot enough - I have found if you use it _as soon_ as it is ready, it can be warm rather than hot. But if you give it a couple of minutes to warm up, the coffee is more than hot enough - not scalding, but that's a good thing.
Summary: This machine is well worth the investment. Instead of drinking couple big cups every morning one great tasting cup from this machine will do. We even stopped using sugar due to the great taste of the coffee itself.
Pros: Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Great Taste, Quick Brewing
Summary: I had a DeLonghi espresso maker that was 10 years old and it finally bit the dust. I was spending 20 dollars + a week at Starbuck to get my fix so I finally began my search for a replacement espresso maker. I wanted something that was automatic so I didn't have to bother with the mess. That's when I found that Nespresso uses DeLonghi and knew this would be perfect fit for me. At 19 bars of pressure this Lattissima plus makes a killer espresso.
Summary: This is a great one touch system that is pretty easy to setup. However after each cup of coffee the milk container needs to be cleaned with a button that needs to be held down firmly the entire 10 second process. Every few months this needs a heavy duty cleaning with a solution that gets sold by Nespresso, this can run about $20 Other than that you can expect quick startup and one great cup o joe every time.
Summary: I purchased the Lattissima Plus last year around this time. When I need coffee in the morning, I don't have the time or mental faculties to work a complicated device, separate frother, and really just want my coffee as fast as possible, with little to no effort. That's exactly what you get from this machine. Attach the milk frother, drop in a capsule, and you have a cappuccino in seconds. It couldn't be easier. The cleanup is also a breeze.
