First Impressions: Lavazza Pininfarina Blue LB1010 Home espresso maker

Lavazza Home Machine

It's been a busy month of new machines here at Single Serve Coffee. We've featured the Cuisinart SS-1 Cup-O-Matic single serve coffee maker, and the new Breville BKC600XL Gourmet Single Cup Brewer. We also wanted to throw one more single serve coffee maker into the mix - the new new compact Lavazza Pininfarina Blue LB1010 Home espresso maker. Priced at $379, this is the most affordable Lavazza machine yet for the home that uses the patented Lavazza coffee, tea, and hot drink capsules (you can read our review of the larger Pininfarina from Lavazza here).

So far we really like the smaller Lavazza Pininfarina Blue LB1010 Home espresso maker. The machine is about half the size of the larger Lavazza Blue machine, and also a lot less power hungry. The water reservoir is smaller, but given the type of drinks you'll likely make - espresso, cappuccinos, and lattes, the smaller size hasn't bothered us. We've also been making quite a few lattes and cappuccinos.

Making a double shot of espresso is very easy.
The dial on the front does shots or turns on the frother.

We froth up a pitcher of hot milk for our cappuccino.

We'll have our full review soon. But so far, we like the coffee produced, and the cleanup and fuss is minimal.
