Nespresso Lattissima Plus Overview

Nespresso has two lines of capsule-based espresso machines:

  • OriginalLine: Their original line (duh) that used a 19 bar pump to extract shots from capsules
  • VertuoLine: Their new line that uses Centrifusion (rapid capsule spinning) to extract shots from barcode-enabled capsules but also brews standard coffee up to 17 oz

For our money, OriginalLine machines are better than VertuoLine machines because their pump produces more authentic espresso, the coffee tends to be hotter, and there's no barcode scanning system meaning you can find less-expensive third-party capsules.

For our money, OriginalLine machines are better than VertuoLine machines because their pump produces more authentic espresso, the coffee tends to be hotter, and there's no barcode scanning system meaning you can find less-expensive third-party capsules.

And among OriginalLine machines, there are 2 series that stand above all others:

  • Lattissima machines with integrated frothers that brew specialty beverages with the push of a single button
  • Creatista machines with integrated frothing wands for a more manual frothing experience, as if you were a true barista

The Lattissima One is part of that first series (obviously), which is made up of 5 different models:

We'll compare all 5 models in our Buyer's Guide below.

This Lattissima Plus jumps up from the Lattissima One's tiny 4 oz milk container but owns the smallest water reservoir of all 5 models.

Pros

  • Actual pump pressure is better than VertuoLine Centrifusion
  • Integrated one-touch milk frother makes specialty beverages easily
  • Solid internal construction means it won't break down quickly
  • Can used 3rd-party capsules

Cons

  • Stated 19 bars is inconsistent
  • ABS plastic scuffs a little easily

The Lattissima Plus is great if you're looking for one-touch specialty beverage system and don't mind the limited 30 oz water reservoir or 4 preset beverages.

If you need more capacity, check out the Lattissima Touch with its 44 oz water reservoir.

If you're looking for more preset brew sizes, either the Lattissima Pro or Gran Lattissima have you covered with 9.

If you want the option to have manual control over your frothing, you'll want to check out one of the 3 Creatista Series machines.

Voltesso (Espresso, Intensity: 4) is a light and sweet blend of Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans that stands out from the other espresso capsules for its less intense profile.

Nespresso Volluto Decaffeinato Capsules (OriginalLine)

Nespresso Volluto Decaffeinato Capsules (OriginalLine)
Overall Rating: 89
Volluto Decaffeinato (Intensity: 4) is the decaffeinated version of our favorite espresso capsule. It delivers the sweet yet rich flavor of Volluto's low-intensity, balanced roast without the jitters.
