Delonghi Nespresso Lattissima Touch with its milk emulsifier

This is the perfect coffeemaker for me for Nespresso coffee and milk foam lovers! In fact, this De Longhi Lattissima Touch electric coffee maker is a classic machine on which a milk tank is positioned. This makes it possible to prepare coffee with milk, but above all to overcome the drinks with a layer of milk foam.

To know if it is easy to use, I offer you my complete opinion on the De Longhi Lattissima Touch.

Complete presentation of the De Longhi Lattissima Touch

This coffeemaker is from De Longhi, an Italian brand, but it is made to work with Nespresso capsules. It has all the special features of Nespresso coffee makers, such as a 19 bar pressure and a clever mix of keys to press to start descaling.

As for the rest, it’s a pretty good machine stately and elegant. It is 32 cm deep, 26 cm high and 17.3 cm wide. It is impossible to miss it when it is installed in a kitchen. In fact, it is more suitable for a kitchen than an office, as its milk tank is not insulated. On the other hand it is very easy to install. The idea is to store it in the fridge between two coffees.

If the milk tank is deliberately small (350 ml), the water tank may be a little small for long coffee lovers. Indeed, it has a capacity of only 900 ml. As it is removable, it is easy to fill it. Be careful, however, because the water tank is transparent but located at the back of the appliance.

It is not always easy to keep track of the remaining water level. And the machine won’t warn you if there isn’t enough water. So the coffee will start and be interrupted along the way. It is possible to turn on the water and start the machine again, not for a new coffee, but to finish the previous one. Except that at this stage the drink is usually lukewarm rather than hot.

Another practical aspect, the cup holder is positioned at two different levels and is suitable for both espresso and mug cups.

How to make coffee with the Lattissima Touch?

The operation of this De Longhi coffeemaker is really very simple. First of all, you have to check the water level in the tank, install if necessary the milk tank and finally a capsule.

The keyboard is actually a touchpad consisting of eight keys. He’s quite sensitive. Each key is accompanied by a symbol so you can easily know what you’re doing. Six drink recipes are available: ristretto, espresso, lungo, cappucino, latte macchiato or just milk foam. The other two buttons actually signal more than they do. There is the button for descaling and cleaning the nozzle (clean) to be done after each cup containing milk.

The coffee maker heats in 25 seconds, which is very fast. The drinks also arrive very quickly and you get a creamy coffee.

A used capsule collector is included.

My opinion about Lattissima Touch De Longhi

This electric coffee maker looks a lot like the Nespresso machines without having the same visual style. For more information, visit the Nespresso coffee maker buying guide.

What I particularly like is its effectiveness and discretion. It emits only 52 dB (really nothing for a coffee maker) and it takes less than 2 minutes to make a coffee.
The milk tank is really at its best, since it allows you to adjust the density of the foam obtained. Between the choice of the coffee capsule, the adjustment of the length of the coffee and that, you really prepare a totally personalized drink. You can even serve only milk foam and then put it on a cup of hot chocolate for example.

The set is rather easy to maintain, even if it should preferably be washed by hand. Only the milk tank goes through the dishwasher, which is not bad since it’s the element that needs to be washed most often.

Just one criticism though, I find the water tank a little small. And it’s a shame there’s not a light that comes on when it’s almost empty.

What is the value for money?

This coffeemaker is currently on sale at 200 € for the black model. Depending on the desired colour, the price fluctuates more or less.

That makes it a pretty expensive coffeemaker. Compared to la prodigio Nespresso which can also be bought with a milk tank, the Lattissima Touch is 10 € cheaper. Yes, it is the milk emulsifier that makes such a price difference compared to other models.

The plusses:

  • adjustable milk foam density
  • on-screen keyboard
  • ready in 25 seconds
  • discrete (52 dB)
  • Nespresso coffee

The least:

  • does not signal if the tank is empty

Conclusion

This machine is only of interest if you liked lattes. And if this is the case then the De Longhi Lattissima Touch, after a few tries, will allow you to prepare a coffee exactly as you want it. And you’ll see that you quickly get a taste for milk foam, whether it’s on a coffee or a hot chocolate.
