A Double Espresso, Please

There are very few perfectly engineered machines. I mean, there’s almost always a flaw. A button that’s not responsive, frustrating maintenance routines…

So when I find a machine that just works, I’m impressed. The Nespresso Lattissima Touch is such a machine.

I’ve been using it and its predecessor, which is harder to get now, for almost a decade now. It has never let me down.

It produces consistent results. It froths milk for you. It cleans itself. The capsules are recyclable. Every part has its place, so you’ll never lose any moving parts. Its parts are dishwasher safe. The detachable milk container can be stored in the fridge. Honestly, De’Longhi thought of everything.

One more thing to consider. If the choice is between buying a coffee outside or making one home, consider this. This machine will actually save you money in the long run. At about £0.40 (or $0.75) a capsule, even with milk, you’re still saving easily over £1.00 (or $1.50) per cup compared to, say, Starbucks.

There’s not much to add, really. If, like me, you can’t be bothered with the hassle of manually making coffee, this is the machine for you. Get one – you’ll never look back. Sleep is overrated anyhow.
