There are two typical sub-brands of the Nespresso Lattissima coffee machine, rejecting the occasional one-off model.
The two types are the Lattisssima plus and Latissima pro.
Features Nespresso Lattissima Touch
The Nespresso Lattisima pro is the luxury edition of the plus model. It has a more refined metallic finish and blue illuminated light to make the machine look perfect on your countertop.
The most significant difference when using day-to-day is a touch display screen.
The Nespresso Lattissima plus uses regular keys instead of a touch screen display and does not have a backlight. However, in terms of practical features, the two are pretty similar.
Anyway, for those wishing to froth their milk, for example, we would advise the Pro version, which comes with its milk frother and an auto-clean feature that could come in handy for long-term maintenance.
This comes at a cost, and the Lattissima pro is more costly than the Lattissima Plus.
Consumers on a budget would advise the Lattissima plus – anyway. However, there is no denying that the Lattissima Pro is the top-of-the-range model.
What coffee can I make with a Nespresso Lattissima?
Nespresso Lattissima machines are generally designed with milk-based coffee in mind, hence adding the milk tank.
Anyway, it is not all that they can do. Regular non-milk coffee is also easy, and the pre-set drink menu on the Lattissima pro contains six choices:
- Cafe latte
There are five as opposed to 6 choices on the Lattissima plus model.
The pro version also has an auto-clean spec and a milk frother for lovers who favor preparing their milk-based drinks.
Finally, note that the Lattissima pro has a much bigger water and milk tank capacity.
