Owning the DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima Plus EN520W

The DeLonghi Nespresso Lattissima PLUS EN520W has a clean, compact, functional design, with easy-to-use illuminated controls. A thermoblock heating element and 19-bar high pressure pump produce the perfect extraction for pre-packed, single serving Nespresso capsules. Straightforward programming and multiple brewing options mean you can dispense drinks quickly, simply, and easily without the fuss and mess of grinding, measuring, and tamping grounds. With a 12 oz automated milk system and a 30 oz water reservoir, espresso and milk are dispensed together into your waiting cup, cutting down on time and simplifying the whole process. And while the machine is convenient, this doesn’t mean you run out of options quickly – you can brew cappuccinos, latte macchiatos, short espresso, long espresso, or dispense hot milk.

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 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! 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).

The EN520W is UL approved as well, making it a great fit for home kitchens and small offices alike.
