OverviewBack to Top
With the DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima EN720.M you and your guests will enjoy delicious espressos, cappuccinos and lattes.
It is so easy to create elegant drinks with Nespresso's patented coffee capsule technology and De'Longhi's patented milk container. Place a capsule in the top of the machine, attach the milk reservoir, place a cup under the nozzle and press the button. The Latissima self primes and does all the work - 45 seconds later you have a great drink. The milk reservoir detaches to return to the refrigerator, and spent capsules automatically eject.
A thermoblock heating element and 19-bar high pressure pump produce the perfect extraction for the pre-packed, single serving. The espresso maker also has an adjustable cup tray height that accommodates large or small cups, a drip tray insert, and a removable 40 oz. water tank for easy filling and maintenance.

Why a capsule brewing system? Convenience! – With no grinding, measuring, or tamping involved; all you have to do is select your favorite flavor and place the capsule inside the machine. Nespresso capsules are specially designed so just the right amount of water flows through them during the brew cycle; then they are automatically ejected into an internal dump box after brewing is completed. Capsules store easily and protect the coffee from any harmful effects of moisture, light, and air.
The DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima EN720.M Espresso Machine is an elegant package of engineering innovation. The designers were able to develop an astonishing amount of functionality in an extremely light weight and small footprint. Weighing just 13 lbs., and having a footprint only 8 inches wide by 10 inches deep and 13 ½ inches high, the Lattissima EN720.M is a delightful looking appliance. Its brushed metal housing is set off by the black delivery spout and black trim elements, so it blends well with any décor.
To the left of the coffee dispenser is the automated one-touch patented 17 oz. milk dispenser and see-through removable carafe, which can be easily detached and placed in a refrigerator when not in use. The “clean” button makes it very easy to maintain.
The convenient illuminated control panel buttons to the right of the spout allow you to choose your favorite drink (cappuccino, latte macchiato, espresso, long coffee, or hot milk) in a simple and intuitive way.
The 40 oz. water reservoir is built into the base of the machine and is easily accessible by removing the milk carafe. An integrated cup warmer is also built into the side of the machine. The unique sliding drip tray with level indicator slides out to reveal the spent capsule container.
This intuitive and user-friendly design makes operating the machine simple and enjoyable.
The hardest part of brewing on the Lattissima is deciding which Nespresso capsule blend you prefer. Once you’ve made your decision, open the lever located in the center, just over the coffee spout, insert the capsule, and close the lever. Press the espresso or lungo (small or large cup) button, and the button blinks as the machine brews espresso directly into your cup. If you prefer a cappuccino or latte, make sure the milk system is inserted, and press the cappuccino or latte button. Milk and espresso are then dispensed into your cup. Once this is complete, lift the same lever again to eject the capsule into the internal container, and close the lever again. You’re all done!
The Nespresso Lattissima comes with pre-programmed volumes for espresso, lungo, and hot water, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to them! If you want to change the volume of your coffee, insert a capsule and press and hold the button corresponding to the drink you want to adjust. Release the button once the desired volume has been reached. The flow of water will stop and the button will blink 3 times to confirm the new volume has been set. Adjusting the hot water is even easier – just press and hold the hot water button until you have the volume you want. The button will blink 3 times, confirming the new volume. If you change your mind about the new volume, it’s easy to reset the factory settings by pressing the standby button for 5 seconds.
Frothing and Hot Milk
Making Cappuccino and Latte Macchiato
It’s so easy! Place your cup below the coffee spout, and move the milk spout so it is pointed into the cup. Select either the cappuccino or latte macchiato button, and your preference is dispensed into your waiting cup.
Knowing how to froth and steam your own milk is undeniably a skill, and not everyone has the time and patience to perfect it. That’s where the patented milk system comes in. Adjust the frother regulator depending on the quantity you want, and the kind of milk you’re using (skim milk produces more froth than whole).
Caring for your Milk System
The automated milk system allows you to press and hold the button labeled “clean” located on the front of the milk system to the left of the spout in order to rinse out the milk. The 17 oz milk container can then be removed and stored in the refrigerator, or cleaned in the dishwasher. The only thing left for you to do now is use a damp cloth to wipe down the connecting tubes where the milk container was inserted.
Care, Maintenance & Other
Removable Drip Tray and Dump Box
It’s easy to keep your Nespresso Lattissima clean with the removable drip tray and dump box. If you cannot close the lever after you insert your capsule, this means that the dump box is filled with spent capsules, so it’s time to remove and rinse the container. A drip tray level indicator shows when the drip tray needs to be emptied, so just remove the drip tray cover and rinse. You can also remove the drip tray to accommodate larger cups.
Removable Water Reservoir
The removable 40 oz water reservoir is easy to empty and rinse by hand. Do not use a dishwasher to clean the tank. Remember, clean fresh water is important for a great tasting shot of espresso. When the reservoir is empty, the milk recipes and coffee buttons will flash for 5 seconds to alert you.
Periodic descaling is desirable if you want to keep your machine operating in peak condition. This process removes the buildup of minerals in your machine’s brewing components, and only takes about 20 minutes. You should descale about once every 3-4 months, though the exact frequency of your descaling will depend on the hardness of your water.
