Delonghi Lattissima EN660/670/680/690 Nespresso Capsule System Coffee Machine Review
I wanted to tell you about this great looking Nespresso capsule system coffee maker from Delonghi – DeLonghi Lattissima EN660 / EN670 / EN680 / EN690. This coffee maker includes a built in internal milk frothing system and a programmable sequence mechanism to produce a great tasting cappuccino in just a press of a button!
This is a really cool machine. The idea is that you place your espresso cup or latte mug in one of the two available heights. Then you insert the included milk container with fresh milk at the left side of the machine and direct the milk nozzle to your cup. After pressing the programmable button, you will get the steamed milk directly to the cup followed by the delicious Nespresso coffee. You don’t need to move the cup…
This sequence is done with two separate Thermoblock pumps, for the milk and water, which means they are heated in two different places in the machine, and you don’t have to wait between the milk and the water. When you finish you remove the milk container and store it if you want, and return the milk hose to its original setting.
One last note, in case you don’t know this, you are limited to one of 12 flavors in capsules currently offered by Nespresso. Only Nespresso makes and markets capsules for Nespresso machines. This is not a big limitation really, since 12 is a nice variety, and Nespresso offers an easy way to order capsules from its website.
I know this machine is not for everyone pricewise, but it looks amazing, and there’s something about pressing a button and getting your coffee prepared without extra work that gets some of us excited!
