The Good Guys –>

|Water Tank Size||1.3L|
|Coffee Functions||Espresso, Ristretto, Lungo, Cappuccino, Latte macchiato|
The Lattissima Pro is the largest model in the DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima range. It has the biggest water tank (1.3L) and offers one of the largest milk tanks too (500ml). The Pro offers the same input power and pump pressure as the other Lattissima models but comes with more features.
This is a great option for anyone looking for a convenient, feature-rich capsule machine that can make espresso and milky coffees with frothed milk. The Pro has a 25-second heat up time and will automatically shut off after 9 minutes of inactivity. The touch screen menu makes it easy to select the drink you want and the display provides additional information and relevant prompts.
There is a removable automatic milk frother that froths milk to your chosen texture. The milk container can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days to save having to empty and wash it after every use.
The Nespresso Lattissima Pro is user-friendly and makes delicious hot coffee topped with a layer of crema. It has a 25-second heat up time which is very fast but still longer than other machines available within a similar price range.
The water tank can be refilled while still in position using the pop-up lid which makes it quick and convenient if a refill is required when making multiple drinks. The milk container is removable, has a built-in cleaning function and is dishwasher safe.
The Pro delivers full flavoured coffee at a good drinking temperature and also has a hot water spout that can be attached when the milk frother is removed. The hot water spout is perfect for topping up Americanos or for making tea.
The brushed aluminium finish looks smart and there is a fold-out metal cup tray for positioning smaller espresso cups. The Pro has a touch-sensitive menu and display screen, this is a step up from the usual push button controls. This is a convenient, low maintenance capsule machine that makes coffees quickly with almost no cleaning needed.

Lattissima Pro Review Analysis
Design and Construction (7/10)
The Lattissima Pro is a smart and modern machine with a brushed aluminium body. It is a sturdy, high-quality capsule machine that has a more premium feel compared to lower-cost options. The Pro has a foldable metal cup rest which is perfect for small espresso cups. There is also an integrated light that helps you see what you are doing.
Taste & Temperature (7/10)
The espressos are rich, full-flavoured and topped with crema. If you are making a milk-based coffee the milk foam is high-quality and consistent. The milk foam density and quantity can be adjusted to suit your liking. The drinks come out hot, with espressos being served at around 67 degrees C/ 152 degrees F. There is also a hot water spout that serves hot water at around 75 degrees C which is perfect for making tea.
Ease of Use (8/10)
The features on the Lattissima Pro make it easy to use. The water tank holds 1.3L of water and can be easily refilled via the pop-up lid. The milk container is removable and can be put into the fridge in between uses to keep the milk fresh. The Pro has touch-sensitive controls and a menu of 7 drink options. The panel displays messages and reminders when necessary too. If inactive for 9 minutes, the capsule machine will automatically shut off to save energy.
Milk Frothing (6/10)
The automatic milk frother is easy to use and lets you adjust the froth level and consistency to suit your preferences. The milk froth can be quite airy but it’s good for ease of use and speed. The milk container is removable and has a lockable lid so the remaining milk can be stored in the fridge for up to 2 days. The frother has a self-clean function and the screen directs you on how to use this. The frother parts are also dishwasher safe.
Cleaning & Maintenance (7/10)
The Lattissima Pro requires little effort to keep it clean and maintained. The used capsule container can hold around 13 capsules, to remove this container the bottom drip tray needs to be removed too which can be a bit fiddly. The milk container has a cleaning function that is prompted after each use and the components are dishwasher friendly too. Descaling is required every 6-12 months and the Pro will display a message when descaling is needed.
