Features & Benefits: Coffee
Lavazza Blue Capsule System
The Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Machine brews using only Lavazza Blue capsules- single-servings of pre-ground, measured, and tamped espresso that have been sealed for freshness. All you need to do is place a capsule in the machine, press a brewing button, and in a few moments, you’ll have a perfect shot of espresso. After brewing, the espresso capsule is dropped into the used capsule drawer of the Lavazza Blue 2312, so making your morning cup of coffee is mess-free. When you want the convenience of the Lavazza Blue system, but aren’t in the mood for coffee, you can also brew using Lavazza Blue tea or hot chocolate capsules.
Programmable Brewing Buttons
This Lavazza espresso machine features 2 programmable brewing buttons for consistent and delicious results. The espresso (small cup icon) and coffee (large cup icon) buttons on the control panel can be programmed to dispense the liquid volume of your choice, from 2 to 12 oz. You can also control pre-infusion, brewing time, coffee temperature, and water hardness in the programming menu.
Control Panel with LCD Display
The control panel on the Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Machine has 4 buttons: espresso, coffee, steam, and stop. The LCD display makes it easy to program and control all of the machine’s functions, and will notify you when maintenance needs to be performed. Once all of the machine’s features have been programmed, brewing requires just the insertion of a capsule and the press of a button. Plus, to ensure the settings aren’t accidentally changed, you can password-protect the programming menu.
To get the most from your coffee, the Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Machine has an adjustable pre-infusion time. This feature will wet the coffee a few moments before brewing to draw out its aromatic oils, resulting in a more flavorful cup. You can lengthen or shorten the pre-infusion time in the programming menu.
Adjustable Temperature Control
Everyone has their own preference when it comes to the flavor of their coffee, and the same is true for temperature. The Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Maker lets you adjust the machine’s brewing temperature right in the programming menu of the machine, so you can customize it to meet your tastes.
If you brew into cold cups, your espresso can lose quite a bit of heat and flavor. Coffee and espresso should always be brewed into pre-heated cups to retain as much of your java’s temperature as possible. The Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Maker has a large cup warmer located on top of the machine with room to keep an array of demitasse and cappuccino cups nice and toasty.
Features & Benefits: Frothing and Hot Water
Powerful Steam Wand
If cappuccinos, lattes, and other milk and espresso drinks are in high demand, the Lavazza Blue 2312 Espresso Machine is ready for the challenge. With a boiler dedicated just to producing steam, you can switch right from brewing to steaming without having to wait for the machine to heat up to steaming temperature. To steam, just press the steam button on the control panel and it will be dispensed from the wand on the front of the machine. When you’ve reached you’re desired amount of froth, just press the “Stop” button on the control panel to halt the flow of steam.
The Lavazza Blue 2312 does not have a separate hot water function, but if desired, you can press and hold one of the brewing buttons without a capsule in the machine. Water at brewing temperature will be dispensed from the coffee spout, however programming settings will be altered. If you want to make tea or hot chocolate, it is recommended that convenient Lavazza Blue tea and hot chocolate capsules be used.
Features and Benefits: Care, Maintenance, & Other
Large Water Reservoir

This locking feature is great in office settings, and ensures only those trained on the espresso machine can remove and fill the reservoir.
Internal Capsule Drawer
After brewing is completed, Lavazza Blue capsules are dropped into an internal capsule drawer. Combined with Lavazza’s innovative capsule system, this drawer makes brewing a mess-free process. The drawer has room for up to 25 used capsules and can be removed for filling and cleaning.
Automatic On and Off Times
You can wake up to a heated machine, and rest easy knowing that the machine will automatically shut down with the Lavazza Blue 2312.
