Nespressolattissma

We'll be traveling down to New York to the Nespresso Boutique for the launch of the Nespresso Lattissima on Thursday morning. The Nespresso® Lattissima combines a Nespresso espresso maker with a one-touch fresh milk froth function. We can't wait to try out all the interesting lattes, cappuccinos, and other Nespresso meets De’Longhi drinks this new machine will make, and we're pretty sure this is the single serve coffee machine we've all been waiting for for those of us obsessed with the perfect froth.

Update: See exclusive pictures and videos of the Nespresso Lattissima and our first impressions...

Don't know what much about the Nespresso Lattissima?

In addition to making the perfect espresso or lungo, the newest Nespresso machine features a one-touch fresh milk froth function, which enables coffee aficionados to create cappuccino or latte coffees at the touch of a button. The one-touch cappuccino system provides the optimal combination of steam, milk and air to create milk froth with perfect consistency. For additional convenience, the one-touch option also features an auto-rinsing function, which enables users to easily clean the tubes used for milk foam preparation, thereby preventing milk particles from remaining inside the system. The removable 17-ounce milk container is a new feature that can be conveniently stored in the refrigerator.

Nespresso® Lattissima:
Convenient Fresh Milk Solution
Creates A Range of Espresso-Based Beverages at Home
Nespresso and De’Longhi Unveil Their New Coffee Machine
Featuring a "One-Touch" Fresh Milk Froth Function

(CHICAGO) — Nestlé Nespresso, the worldwide pioneer and market leader in the single-serve coffee segment, and De’Longhi, one of the most renowned electric household appliance companies in Italy, today launched the Nespresso Lattissima machine. The name " Lattissima" has its roots in the Italian language: "latte" for "milk" and the ending "issima" as the superlative for "the best." The Companies' mutual vision was to create a machine that would enable connoisseurs to easily prepare a latte or cappuccino of the highest quality with the perfect milk froth. The Nespresso Lattissima achieves exactly that—a product showcasing the mutual expertise of both collaborators. Nespresso contributed its one-of-a-kind, hermetically sealed capsule system and machine partner De'Longhi applied its experience in household electrical products.

Refined Details for Increased Comfort
In addition to making the perfect espresso or lungo, the newest Nespresso machine features a one-touch fresh milk froth function, which enables coffee aficionados to create cappuccino or latte coffees at the touch of a button. The one-touch cappuccino system provides the optimal combination of steam, milk and air to create milk froth with perfect consistency. For additional convenience, the one-touch option also features an auto-rinsing function, which enables users to easily clean the tubes used for milk foam preparation, thereby preventing milk particles from remaining inside the system. The removable 17-ounce milk container is a new feature that can be conveniently stored in the refrigerator.

The adjustable cup platform houses another innovative touch: its middle section can be pushed back to fill a latte glass. In addition, on the Satin Chrome model, the entire top surface of the Nespresso Lattissima offers a generous amount of space for warming cups.

Innovative Technology and Modern Design
The Nespresso Lattissima features twin pump and heating systems, one for producing coffee and the other for frothing milk, which may be used at the same time. A feature of all Nespresso machines, the 19-bar high-pressure pump and thermoblock system ensures optimal coffee extraction from the patented Nespresso capsule, releasing all the aromas and rich crema that are characteristic of the highest quality espresso and coffees. Its integrated flow-stop system allows for programming the desired water level for a coffee or espresso. Using the auto cappuccino function at the same time delivers a cappuccino in less than one minute and a latte macchiato in approximately one minute and twenty seconds.

"We developed the Nespresso Lattissima with a clear objective in mind: to offer our customers the opportunity to quickly, easily and conveniently use fresh milk to prepare their own cappuccino or latte at home. The Lattissima is the ideal addition to our machine range, fulfilling a growing demand for espresso-based milk drinks in the global coffee market," said Gerhard Berssenbrügge, CEO, Nestlé Nespresso S.A.

"With our long-term partner, we are proud to introduce aficionados to a new generation of coffee machines, combining our revolutionary Instant Froth Dispenser system with the highest-quality Nespresso coffee," said Fabio De’Longhi, Chief Executive Officer of the De’Longhi group.

Renowned designer Antoine Cahen from Ateliers du Nord in Lausanne, who has given most Nespresso machines their unique look, created the Lattissima's image. "The Lattissima displays a one-of-a-kind functionality and user-friendliness, mirrored by its classic, modern design," said Cahen. "It has structured features comprised of clean lines, which are sure to make it stand out in any kitchen."

The Nespresso Trilogy
The successful Nespresso concept is based on a unique trilogy comprised of hermetically sealed, perfectly portioned Grand Cru coffee capsules, smart, stylish machines and unparalleled 24/7 services.

The Nespresso Lattissima from De’Longhi will be available in stores in the fourth quarter of 2007.
