The Lavazza Espresso Point Matinee Inox gets right to the point of brewing: delicious espresso that you can enjoy in a matter of moments. The Point Inox uses only convenient pre-packaged cartridges that are uniquely designed for use with this Lavazza machine, allowing you to make a shot of espresso without the mess. Each small plastic cartridge is filled with a special blend of Lavazza coffee that will produce great crema and a high quality taste, no grinding, dosing, or tamping needed. There is also a selection of tea, hot chocolate, and even consommé available for use with the machine as well. Please note that the Point is only compatible with these cartridges, not ESE pods.
This Lavazza Point Matinee Inox machine shines in its chrome-plated stainless steel housing. Its compact size makes it easy to fit on most kitchen counters, and the water tank, with a capacity of up to 3 liters, is accessible from the top of the machine. The Point also features a swiveling steam wand that’s perfect for making cappuccinos and lattes.
Features & Benefits: Coffee
The Lavazza Espresso Point Inox offers the ultimate in convenient production of espresso, tea, hot chocolate, and soup with easy clean-up. Simply open the door on the front of the machine, place a plastic cartridge in the slot, and close the door. The door will snap the cartridge into place in the machine for proper brewing. When you put a new cartridge in, the spent cartridge will be automatically pushed into the waiting dump drawer on the bottom of the machine.
Coffee Size Options
With the Lavazza Espresso Point Inox, you can brew manually, or use the pre-set coffee size buttons. On the far right of the Point’s control panel, there are 3 buttons for large, medium, and small coffees. To the left of the small coffee button is the manual dispensing button. When you select a button, the green light next to it will illuminate. If you want to stop the flow of water at any point during pre-set or manual brewing, just press the stop button on the left of the control panel.
The controls on this Lavazza machine are very straightforward. Press 1 of the 4 coffee buttons to start dispensing and the Point machine will stop automatically when the pre-set quantity is reached. And, dispensing hot water and steam through the steam wand is controlled by a button as well. When in use, a green light will appear next to each button and the power can be turned on and off using the rocker switch on the back of the machine.
Features & Benefits: Frothing & Hot Water
Hot Water Dispenser
If you want to make tea, hot chocolate, or instant soups that aren’t available in a convenient cartridge, you can use the hot water dispenser on the Lavazza Espresso Point. Hot water is dispensed from the end of the steam wand, and because the wand swivels in and out, you can use a variety of cup sizes.
The Lavazza Espresso Point Inox’s pivoting steam wand provides clearance for milk pitchers, giving you lots of elbow room while you steam and froth. Made of the same chrome-plated stainless steel as the rest of the machine, this wand is easy to clean and maintain.
Features & Benefits: Care, Maintenance & Other
This Lavazza machine has a 3-liter reservoir, meaning you’ll have plenty of time between refills. When it’s running low on water, a light will illuminate on the left of the Point’s control panel. The top panel of the machine can be taken off and the reservoir easily removed for cleaning.
Removable Cartridge Drawer
Every time you put in a new cartridge to be brewed, the previous cartridge is automatically pushed into the dump drawer. This drawer, located on the bottom of the Lavazza Espresso Point, can hold up to 30 spent cartridges and can be pulled out and easily cleaned with warm water, non-abrasive solvent, and a sponge.
The Lavazza Espresso Point Inox has and all chrome-plated stainless steel housing. A lit cup tray also enhances this elegant and stylish design and subtle green indicator lights on the control panel. The elegant housing is simple to keep clean with just a few wipes with a soft, damp cloth.

HI, my machine is not frothing and I am not sure why? I have watched your video and cleaned my machine exactly the way you said to. Except I do not have the cleaner, would this matter? No steam to froth the milk. The espresso coffee is perfect just frothing. What could be wrong with my machine? The machine is 1 year old. Thank you. Debra
A simple question to check for whether or not there is a problem with the machine dispensing through the wand, or a problem with the machine heating up in general is to test the hot water mode. This attempts to dispense hot water from the steam arm; If it works, you know that you aren't fighting against a clogged wand or steam arm joint. If it doesn't, I'd suggest removing the steam wand entirely (done by loosening the thumbscrew on the base of the arm until it detaches from the machine) and trying hot water mode again. If you can't get hot water then, there's likely a clog somewhere further downstream that requires service.
