So easy! A must for coffee addicts
Everything about this machine is easy. Easy to use, easy to clean. Most of my friends find nespresso machines expensive but I truly think it is worth it. Especially if you are like me and need to start your mornings with a caffeine hit. I purchased this machine for my partner when nespesso was offering a cashback and it was the best purchase I made last year. The best thing is that the machine is not too bulky and doesn't take up a lot of kitchen counter space like many other coffee machines.
The most necessary accessory to every kitchen.
The Nespresso DeLonghi Lattissima is the best thing, I believe, since sliced bread. It is so quick and easy to use, with the varieties of coffee (in relation to strength etc.) vast and wide enough to suit everyone. I have now become a coffee snob and will no longer drink instant coffee as it lacks the depth and flavour of Nespresso Coffee. I love it!
Does a great coffee
DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Touch EN550 is a great machine, reliable, easy to use, easy to clean, and coffee tastes good.it will last a long time if looked after,it is well made and I am very happy with it. I like the color of it too. A machine that I am proud to own
Does the job!
Consistent coffee every time. Easy, convenient and quick. Easy to clean. Low maintenance and fuss. Much easier to live with than the old style machine. Reliable and absolutely nil issues since purchasing it 18 months ago would recommend to buy it any day of the week. Well worth the money.
Great Little Coffee Machine
We needed a coffee machine for our new office with 10 staff so when looking at the Good Guys. Spoilt for choice, the Latissima Plus was recommended by the sales person as one he had used. He demonstrated it and explained how easy it was to use and, most importantly, clean.
I am pleased to report that this little machine is perfect for a small office like ours. Its small, it looks good, it is easy to use and clean and its makes great coffee, both short blacks and cappuccinos. The way it froths milk is brilliant as is the easy way you steam clea...
Great coffee machine
It's easy to make a great coffee with this machine, I use it everyday. For strong coffee I use 2 pods or weak, just 1 pod with more milk. All the parts of the milk holder as well as the used pod container go in the dishwasher and the rest is super easy to clean. It tells you when to descale the machine, and this is also an easy process. I really do love my coffee machine.
Lattissima Touch to much plastc used and flimsy constrution.
Coffee reasonable taste but fiddly expensive capsules dont make it very economic.
Quite slow making Coffee. Does overflow into Capsule compartment instead of going into cup.
Then when frothing the milk you get first cup done and when you come to frothing milk for second cup it stops and light comes on and wants the milk part to be cleaned every time.
I would expected to make several cups of coffee at least before milk frother wants to be cleaned.

I returned this machine after 4 months as it was frequently dispensing the coffee into the capsule container instead of the cup. Nespresso said they tested it extensively but could find no problem. I received it back, the first coffee I made was fine (I only make one a day) the next two days it made the coffee into the capsule container again. I sent it back, again they tell me there is nothing wrong with the machine - really!!! I will video the next coffee I make - when I eventually get the machine back. Terrible service, when you phone Nespre...sso you get different information every time. They promise to phone back but never do. This was a replacement for my Latissima Plus, I wanted to buy the Latissima Pro but was advised by the consultant I spoke to that this was very difficult to clean properly and the Touch was a much better machine. I should have listened to my instincts. Yes it is easy to use & clean, but it is costing me a fortune in wasted capsules, that are expensive to start with.
Way over priced for what it is and Nespresso experience way over processed. Won't buy another unless
It is convenient and quick to use, loved it the first couple of months but not the best quality product or most positive user experience standing a short test of time.
In less than a year the machine itself has one coffee setting that continually fails and the milk frothier never measures according to what has been set. Descaling is fiddly and a pain. Also the capsule catcher compartment cover keeps coming off. The factory reset now won't work at all.
Nespresso coffee isn't that great, even the strong blends are weak but luckily there ...is other brands with really decent coffee compatible with the machine that are also much cheaper available in most supermarkets. The buying process for Nespresso coffee is also a bit of a nightmare, a self serve production line at the store and the delivery service never seems to arrive within the agreed time-frame. Completely over engineered and impersonal - exactly the opposite of what enjoying the simplicity of a good cup of coffee should be. The card captures your information but offers no loyalty discounts of bonus for buying nespresso coffee so its just an extra pointless step and awkward thing to have to pull out and juggle full hands with no benefit. Customer service staff are very sensitive to feedback.
Questions & Answers
Not puncturing genuine pods properly at the waffle plate and leaking water into pod tray and onto kitchen surface. Any help?
Try to clean the pyramid plate (waffle plate) by using a toothbrush and scrubbing the plate then closing the lever and running a lungo extraction. Repeat process until water is only running into the cup. Remember to empty the drip tray inside regularly so it doesn't overflow and flood your benchtop. Once flow has been corrected it would be best to descale.
Can you just use the water and not the milk when making a coffee?
Yes you don't need to use milk, the preset coffee buttons on the left side of the panel only dispense coffee. The buttons on the ride side dispense milk and coffee or just milk depending on the button you press. So the machine can be used for espressos.
