This review is from: Delonghi EN520.BL Nespresso Lattissima Plus Coffee Maker, Blue (Kitchen & Home)
As a long time Nespresso user I wanted a machine to replace an ageing Magimix M200, which has served me well for almost seven years. I wanted a machine that gave me the same flexibility as the M200, and was worried that I'd struggle to find a current machine that would match up to it.
I'm happy to say that the Lattissima Plus is better in every way. The milk frother is very handy and works really well. Like the M200 the frothiness can be adjusted for cappuccino or latte, but it can be stored in the fridge, and has a built in cleaning cycle. The cup size, and the amounts of coffee and milk, can be programmed, and thereafter a perfect coffee is a one button process. The machine is surprisingly small - definitely more compact than the M200, yet can accommodate taller cups when needed. The auto power-off feature will be most welcome - no more wondering if I forgot to turn the machine off.
The Nespresso system guarantees consistently good coffee, cup after cup, with no mess and very little cleaning involved. There are coffees to suit most tastes. Don't be put off by having to buy the capsules directly from Nespresso. I usually buy enough for three to four months at a time, so carriage is free (and often next day), meaning they work out around 30p a cup, which is good value for one of life's little luxuries.
