Nespresso Latissima Plus Single Serve Coffee Maker
The Latissima Plus single serve coffee maker is from Nespresso and Delonghi. As with the previous Lattisima this machine makes cappuccinos and lates with ease. Just pop in a nespresso capsule and touch a button—one-touch ease and patented technology deliver a perfect coffee experience every time, and the programmable buttons give you a perfect drink in the size you want.
You can also easily control the amount of silky foam and steamed milk, and keep the removable milk container in the refrigerator instead of having to fill it with milk each time. This machine comes in Navy, Red, Silver and White. We prefer the red ourselves, but whatever color you choose you'll be happy with the results.
Check out our full review here of the previous Lattissima. From what we can see, the only difference in the plus appears to be the side the milk container is on, and the amount of milk you can store in it. We'll see what we can do to drum up a unit to review.

I own 4 Nespresso machines and the Lattissima range is the most disappointing.
First problem i'm having with this machine is the splattering of milk. The milk splatters on my all over my table half the time despite doing the proper cleaning after each cup.(Yes that's pressing the "clean" button for 15 wasting seconds EACH TIME)
The second problem is the cleaning of the milk canister. I clean with my hands everytime followed by another sterilization with my dishwasher, which the manual says is safe.
One morning i prepared my coffee and i've found some foreign objects in my coffee i drank halfway. I tilt my head and to my disgust, worms are trying to flee from the nozzle.
The worm infestation was everywhere, on the metal plate, under the machine, on the drip collector.
I called the helpdesk and they explained it's my fault.
1. Well~ Maybe the canister was not properly cleaned. O'Rite!
2. Or maybe milk dripped onto the drip collector or under the machine
The problem is, the milk canister was cleaned at high temperature and was cleaned TWICE.
The nozzle drips milk and is the design failure which i can't help.
For such reasons i think the predecessors like the Citiz and Milk or Aeroccino separate, is a better bet. It's cleaner, the result is clearly better.
You can tell from the foam quality of foam and crema.
I felt so weird why they say it can make cappuccino and latte.
It creates too much foam on latte and it's latte and cappuccino has nothing in different with almost same amount of foam and milk.
This is a known problem you can find it discussed all over the internet.
If you are a flat white drinker, who expects no foam, this machine is not for you.
Another interesting thing, the time it takes for the Lattissima+ to make a cappuccino/latte is SLOWER than using a separate Aeroccino. The sales guy told me it's faster which is not true.
The Lattissima has to start up twice, once for the brewer, the other for the steamer.
For the Citiz and milk, you can simply do the brewing of coffee and frothing the milk together, there's no startup time for the Aeroccino. You do have to wait a few secs for the milk to froth, but it's fast.
The device also wastes much milk. The tube can't sucks up the last 2-4cm of milk from the canister and i've to pour it away or drink from it direct.
I'm not sure why but as the milk canister approaches 1/5 full, the amount of milk churned or frothed out is lesser than it was when it was full tank.
My cappuccino while it's full tank is cup full, when my milk tank is 1/5 full, it only produced a 3/5 cup.
Weird and inconsistent
