Review: The Nespresso Lattissima Plus vs. The Nespresso Lattissima Pro

Comparing Nespresso Lattissima Plus and Nespresso Lattissima Pro – Follow the brewing process

In order to be able to compare the Nespresso Lattissima Plus and the Nespresso Lattissima Pro, a detailed list of the individual components of both machines is required. In addition, it may be helpful to first of all deal with the different brewing processes of espresso and conventional coffees. For example, to prepare an espresso you need a machine that keeps the water temperature at a constant 199.4°F.

The Nespresso Lattissima Pro

The Lattissima Pro gives you the opportunity to choose from 6 pre-programmed drinks. These include lungo, espresso, ristretto, latte macchiato, cappuccino and hot milk. The preparation of tea is possible thanks to the hot water function. The Lattissima Pro also makes it possible to produce separate milk foam – the Lattissima Plus does not have this feature. The Pro also promises a quick brewing process after just 30 seconds warm-up time. To pin it to the limit: The Nespresso Lattissima Pro measures 7.6 x 13 x 10.8 in. and weighs 14.3 lbs. The high-quality machine consists of a surface finished with brushed aluminum and an LCD display with integrated touch screen. The Lattissima Pro can collect 13-16 used coffee capsules in its container.

The Nespresso Lattissima Plus

The Nespresso Lattissima Plus is quite compact with 6.6 x 12.6 x 10 in. and 9.9 lbs. and smaller than the sister model. The Nespresso Lattissima Plus has a power-saving mode that causes the machine to turn itself off after a few minutes of inactivity. The height-adjustable drip tray also offers space for larger cups and glasses. As a "little sister" to the Lattissima Pro, the Nespresso Lattissima Plus also offers a patented one-touch operation for hot milk. All you have to do is insert the filled milk tank into the unit. The machine takes 25 seconds to heat up. The Lattissima Plus has 7 programmable buttons for operation and offers users 3 programs for milk and 2 for coffee. Unlike her big sister, the Lattissima Plus can only collect 10 used coffee capsules in the container. The size of the water tank of the Nespresso Lattissima Plus is 30.4 oz. The model is currently available in silver.

Advantages and disadvantages of the Nespresso Lattissima Plus and the Nespresso Lattissima Pro

The Lattissima Pro features an intuitive touch screen and is faster to use compared to the Lattissima Plus. The Lattissima Plus relies on the classic push-button operation. Both machines have an energy-saving mode, which ensures an automatic shutdown after 9 minutes. Height-adjustable drip grids can also be found on both models. While the Plus has a cleansing button for the milk container, the Pro features an automated cleaning system. The only real disadvantage of the Nespresso Lattissima Pro is its price. Apart from that, the Pro with its one-touch operation and sophisticated design is the preferred choice.

Which machine do you choose?

The direct comparison between the Nespresso Lattissima Plus and the Nespresso Lattissima Pro shows that the Pro is the higher-end machine. However, since this exclusivity is also reflected in the price, the Lattissima Plus is a cheap alternative for the budget-conscious customer. The choice of your machine should be based on your coffee preference: Espresso is more flavorful than classic filter coffee and is therefore served in small cups with about 40 ml capacity. A double espresso comes to about 60 ml. Cappuccino contains milk, which was foamed by steam or a milk frother. The milk foam is added to the espresso in a cup and forms a fine-pored foam hood. In a latte macchiato, the milk foam is first prepared and put into a glass. Due to the differences in density, the hot milk in the lower part and the foam in the upper part of the glass settle. The espresso is poured through the center of the milk hood and forms a dark layer in the middle of the glass. Those who prefer milk mix drinks should opt for one of the models presented here. Who prefers a good espresso, could also fall back on a model with less features.
