The Lavazza Espresso Point gets right to the point of brewing: delicious espresso that you can enjoy in a matter of moments. The Point 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 machine shines in chrome-plated stainless steel housing with brass accents. 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 offers the ultimate in mess-free production of espresso, tea, hot chocolate, and soup. 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, 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’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 has chrome-plated stainless steel with brass accents. 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.

Where can I get inline water softener part or resin for Lavazza Espresso Point machine?
While we do not carry the Lavazza-manufactured part, we do offer both the Expobar and Rancilio in-tank water softener cartridges ( http://www.wholelattelove.com/products/expobar-water-softener-cartridge and http://www.wholelattelove.com/products/rancilio-water-softener , respectively). Either should fit the role just fine.
Mt steamer does not work and the hot water comes out of the same place the espresso comes out? Any suggestions on what is wrong and how to fix? I just ordered the cleaning kit and am going to give it a good cleaning. Can I take the wand apart to clean it? Help! Thank you for any solutions or advice.
I would recommend contacting our technical support department at 1-888-411-5282 option 3
my machine seems not to heat enough to extract coffee correctly.
It can make hot water and steam but when I make coffee the coffee only come out barely warm.
What can it be?
Have you cleaned and/or descaled the machine recently?
I am using Filicori capsules in my Espresso Point machine and my shots are only about half the size as they are with the Lavazza capsules. I also noticed that I am getting a lot of water in the drawer. I assume there is a pressure relief valve after the flow meter that is bypassing the excess pressure caused by the Filicori capsules (the flow from them is very slow). My question is, can I do anything to fix this problem. Thanks
I would recommend thoroughly cleaning the machine and performing a descaling cycle. See if that helps with the flow of water into the drawer.
my Lavazza espresso point machine will not power on. Fuses look good. My power cord is only about 8 months old. What else do you think it could be?
The Lavazza Point machines are generally straightforward and somewhat non-serviceable. If the machine doesn't power on and appears to have a good cord, there isn't terribly much you can do short of testing with another cord (if only to rule out the one you have) and on another power circuit to rule out a problem with the mains power. If all else fails, you may want to set up a repair order for the machine--While they are typically the "tanks" of the espresso world, even they may occasionally require service. You're welcome to give our Technical Support department a call at 888-411-5282, Option 3.
