Best Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Pro Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals & Sales 2021

Between Delonghi and Nespresso, it is a long love story which continues and which seems moreover successful, if we judge by the notes that collected the models tested in our comparison . After the Lattissima + and Touch , here is the Lattissima Pro which gains a touch screen for better user comfort.

Presentation

As often, Delonghi Nespresso machines are distinguished by a fairly high positioning and the Lattissima Pro is no exception to the rule. Launched at € 500, this coffee machine is now around € 300. High-end, it offers more options than conventional coffee makers like the Pixie or the Citiz , and in particular three different coffee sizes, where the machines previously mentioned only have two. In addition, this machine is able to prepare milk drinks thanks to the carafe dedicated to this use.

Ease of use

This Delonghi Lattissima Pro looks broadly like its predecessors and with its format, it optimizes space. If the previous ones sported a plastic coating, this coffee maker gives way to a flattering brushed stainless steel which gives it a “premium” appearance, price positioning requires! The finishes are of quality and the design inspires confidence.

The Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Pro inaugurates a digital text display supposed to simplify the use and maintenance of the device. And in practice, indeed, this screen shows a certain relevance by dispensing with the use of pictograms or light indicators that are sometimes not very eloquent. The sensitive and illuminated keys that line the display reinforce this impression of sobriety.

In addition to the easily accessible Start / Stop button, there are 6 sensitive buttons for 6 direct access recipes, including the traditional ristretto coffees (25 ml), espresso (40 ml), lungo (110 ml), cappuccino and latte milk drinks macchiato, as well as a function for making milk froth. Finally, the control panel includes a nozzle rinsing button and another to access the machine parameters. 

For each drink, it is possible to adjust the quantity of water and coffee by referring to the user manual. The possibility of programming the quantity of coffee and milk is a plus, but you must have the manual to play the keys and find the right combination. It’s simple to do, but not very intuitive. A return to the factory settings is of course possible.

Easy maintenance

Although all the removable elements can be washed in the dishwasher, this is not recommended if you want to ensure better durability of the elements. It is preferable to clean them by hand with washing-up liquid without any aggressive product or solvent. The operation is simple and unhindered.

The screen mentioned above also clearly facilitates the maintenance of the machine, as long as the user is warned as soon as it is necessary to carry out descaling. However, we regret that there are no keys dedicated directly to this use. At the time of descaling, after filling the water tank with the descaling product, it will be necessary, as for programming, to have the instructions to know the combination of two keys which will initiate this operation.

Finally, Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Pro is proud of its Autoclean touch, which rinses the milk tank automatically.

Speed

Like its sister Touch , the Lattisima Pro is a model of speed. It takes 22 s to preheat (against fifty for the Lattissima +) and 18 s to prepare the first espresso in the morning. Between two preparations, the machine does not preheat and it will therefore take an additional 18 s to make the second espresso. To extract a ristretto , the machine takes 9 s, and 30 s for a long coffee.

For a cappuccino, the times remain identical to those recorded on the Lattissima Touch. Allow 1 min of preparation in total when the machine has just been turned on. The preheating time is reduced to 15 s (then 5 s when the machine is not immersed in standby).

Power consumption

The Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Pro provides a “standby” function and automatic shutdown after 9 min (default), 30 min, 2 h or 8 h, as desired. Where it surprises is by displaying zero consumption when it is off or in standby. This may be a detail for some, but be aware that this is not the case for most of the machines in our comparison. At the time of preheating, which is rapid, we noted a peak at 1400 W.

Noise

The Lattissima Pro is as discreet as the Lattissima Touch. We noted a noise level of only 52 dB during the extraction.

Availability of capsules

For some, the availability of Nespresso capsules is the brand’s weak link. These can be found on the manufacturer’s website or in Nespresso boutiques. The whole business model of the manufacturer is based on the sale of capsules, sold at around 35 cents per unit (see box below).

Compatible capsules are sold in supermarkets, but do not always work very well. Indeed, we had to repeatedly dislodge by hand a capsule of this type so that it falls into the collector of used capsules.

Readers’ taste

The taste of coffee being inherently subjective, we have chosen to entrust the appreciation to our readers through a vote that we leave open continuously. And once again, the majority of voters who have already tasted Nespresso coffee gave it a rating of 5 stars.

CONCLUSION

Once again, Delonghi signs a beautiful Nespresso coffee machine that has almost everything to please. From the careful design, to the clean control panel, to the speed of execution, the Lattissima Pro suffers from no fault in taste. Easy to use and maintain, it will delight fans of milk drinks on the bounty.
