Lattissima Pro Vs Lattissima Plus: What's The Difference Anyway?
A Lattissima Pro & Plus Comparison
Everyone who loves good coffee drinks loves Nespresso. If you aren't familiar with the Nespresso line of machines then think about a Keurig pod coffee system and then think espresso rather than coffee. The two machines don't really compete they compliment each other in the single cup coffee space.
In any event The Lattissima line is the premium machines made by Nespresso. They are capable of making excellent espresso just like their cheaper cousins the Pixie, Citiz, and the U but the Lattissima machines are also able to produce milk based espresso drinks at the touch of a button making them far more convenient and just plain cool.
The cost for the Lattissima line is somewhat high though. If you don't usually make lattes then a cheaper model may be a better fit for your kitchen. For those that do make milk drinks frequently then choosing between the Lattissma Pro and Plus is going to be your biggest challenge.
The Main Difference
The Lattissima Pro makes steamed milk and produces hot water without making espresso. The Lattissima Plus does not. The Pro also features a touch screen display rather than a set of buttons to push.
Lattissma Pro Extra Features
The difference between the Lattissima Pro and the Lattissima Plus is slight. Other than styling differences (a flat top) and some slight differences in the water tank the main thing you get by paying extra money to get the Pro is the look and feel of using a sleek touch screen to control the unit.
As for functional features the added value of being able to create just steamed milk at the touch of a button is very nice because you can use it to top off a latte, make hot milk for cooking, or for any other purpose you can think of. The added value of the hot water dispenser is something tea lovers will like as well.
If you aren't concerned about these then you can really save some cash by buying the Lattissima Plus instead.
