Good for the occasional espresso. Not for cappuccino or everyday.

Summary: I really wanted to like this machine. The coffee is very good and the crema of the espresso is outstanding. The two complaints I have are this: when making a cappuccino, the frother inserts barely luke warm milk into the drink. The result is a luke warm cup of coffee.
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.
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...
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.
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.
Almost like a restaurant coffe; better than Starbucks

Summary: You have to use milk with less fat to have foam but No fat milk would make too much; for me 2% is best Also, my wife needs the stronger level because it gets diluted in a lot of milk. I'm ok with level 4
Pros: - Quick to make milk based coffees - Excellent variety of coffee flavors - Type of milk really makes a difference
Cons: - Need to use dishwasher to clean one piece - Foam level knob doesn't really work - First coffee can be colder than the second one
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.
