DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso Capsule System: You Can Make Great Tasting Coffee Too...Just Like a Pro!

Updated on November 24, 2013

DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso Capsule System.

My friend Joss loves coffee and makes several cups every day...strong and black.

Joss had a cafe in the past so knows how to make a great tasting coffee but I'm quite the novice. Although I've had a coffee machine for many years I've only ventured into making coffee as a filter pot. Using the Espresso portion was a bit intimidating to me...

Now I too can make the same great tasting coffee just like a pro!

I'd heard about making coffee from pods but had never seen one in action and couldn't imagine what it would be like, or what the coffee would taste like.

A few weeks ago we travelled to Auckland and stayed with our good friends...our coffee lover friends. This time Joss was using a different machine. There was no noise, no waiting...just great tasting coffee with no hassles. She was using the DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso Capsule System.

There's no need to grind coffee beans, measure anything and using pods is a clean way of making coffee. And for a novice like me it's so easy and convenient. Even I can make a good Espresso now!

The convenient size of the DeLonghi Lattissima Plus Nespresso makes it ideal for fitting under the cupboards on the kitchen bench. And not only that it's an attractive piece of equipment for the kitchen.

The water and milk attachments are dishwasher safe and easily detached.

The Pros:

Great look, good size to fit on bench, quiet, clean and easy to operate...and makes a good cup of coffee!

The Cons:

Exposed to the sun the water chamber can get a green film developing so make sure it is cleaned regularly. Milk may not be hot enough for some tastes.

And what better way to store all those pods than on this attractive carousel. It's small enough to fit in the cupboard and attractive enough to sit along side your new Nespresso Machine.

 

Making a Late. This sounds a bit noisier than Joss's machine!
