One touch simplicity
One button is all it takes to enjoy exceptional espressos, bold cappuccinos, creamy lattes and rich macchiatos. The machine does the rest.
The ultimate convenience. The recyclable aluminum capsules contain the finest espressos for authentic taste without measuring or cleanup.
All about the foam
The De’Longhi Automatic Cappuccino System creates perfectly layered espresso beverages, with dense, rich, long-lasting foam in every cup from start to finish.
Brings out the flavor
De’Longhi’s patented espresso extraction system creates the ideal flow of water with 19 bars of pressure – the ultimate amount for drawing the most flavor and desired temperature in each cup.
The integrated carafe dispenses milk in adjustable levels for taste. Simply remove from the unit to keep freshly refrigerated. The unit is also designed so no milk comes in contact with the machine – and is dishwasher safe.
Savor a variety of Nespresso capsule options from three gourmet aromatic families: Intense, Mild and Fruity. Selections available in both regular and decaf.
Rapid heat up time
No need to wait for a delicious espresso. The Thermoblock heating system speeds cold-start heating time to seconds.

This Touch machine gives you your shot in about 25 seconds, the Plus takes about 40 seconds. A "hotter" brew? I can't notice a difference between the two. But I really can't give you a definitive answer, simply because of all the variables: Cold room, warm room, cold water, colder water, heated or not heated glass, pottery, ceramic, you get the idea. During the summer months the brew is plenty hot for me in any Nespresso machine. In a very cold kitchen, I heat my glass before pulling the shot.
Regarding the color of this model: I mention this because at the time I write this review, it is hard to discern from the one picture on the page what the scheme really is: The lever is shiny silver metal. (Love to polish it, seriously, it has a great substantial feel to it.) The sides are shiny very dark gray, (almost black, but not quite) plastic. Top is kind of a matte-but-flecked silver plastic. Grates are silver metal. Base pieces are black plastic. Very sharp look. Seems to match my black, my titanium silver, my brushed stainless, shiny stainless "stuff" in my kitchen just fine.
Both Touch and Plus machines use the same milk container: You can vary the density of the foam on a dial on top of the container. Also, because the milk container is the same, you clear and clean the steamer nozzle and siphon straw the exact same way.
The Touch is a tiny bit taller than the Plus, so the water container is taller and narrower. This machine can hold 3.8 cups of water, (a little more than 3 ¾ cups). The older Lattissima Plus holds 4 cups.
The Lattissima Pro machine came out in 2014 and—at that time—did everything bigger and better. Now, I can say that it does things “bigger”. But better? Can’t necessarily say that now, because this Touch has the same amount of touch-sensitive buttons—and they are set to do the same things. If you drink a lot of coffee in house, if you regularly entertain a steady stream of coffee drinkers, you should take a look at the Pro, as its size is better suited to your larger needs. The Lattissima Pro holds 6 cups of water and 2 ½ cups of milk.
But if it’s just the one or two or three of you? This Touch is the way to go. If you have limited counter space? This Touch is the way to go. If you have a perfectly fine working Plus, and you have it programmed it to your liking, and if you have mastered the instructions for descaling it? Keep your Plus until it dies, then you can rationalize buying this new one. (Unless the extra 15 seconds of brew time means a whole lot to you....)
The other buttons that are on both this Touch and the Pro, but not on the older Plus: This machine has a warm (they call it “warm”; I call it “hot”) milk setting. So you can create other drinks. I find it helpful for hot chocolate and tea. This new Touch (and the Pro) have buttons for descaling. (You can also descale the Plus, but it takes pressing this button, then that button and some waiting time in between.)
I started with the purchase of a Citiz six years ago, then bought a Plus a year later and kept both in my kitchen. Then I got a bigger Pro for the kitchen, moved the Citiz to a coffee bar in the family room, and moved the Plus into our motor coach. Then, I was offered this Touch to work with it and do a review on it. And it was a difficult decision whether to stick with the older Plus in the RV or change it out for this new Touch. Color won. I pulled the white Plus off the limited-space counter in the bus, and this Touch is now standing there proudly. (Even with it being a touch taller than the Plus.)
But bottom line--and the particulars--of what I’m saying is this: ALL three of these machines do the SAME FINE JOB of brewing up a ristretto (.85 oz.), an espresso (1.35 oz.), or a lungo (long cup, 3.75 oz.)—or anything in between .84 oz. up to 6.76 oz. All three machines can give you a latte macciato or a cappuccino, in a variety of foam densities and quantities ( 1.01 oz. up to 6.76 oz. milk at a time). The Pro and Touch can also give you warm milk at the touch of a button. The Plus can give you just warm milk with a touch of foam, but it takes a little finagling with the buttons and a spent capsule.
And if you are wondering if smaller containers on the Touch, (compared with the Pro), will cause you grief: From my experience I have learned that 1.) Adding water or milk to the containers is easy. 2.) We often end up dumping water out of the Lattissima Pro, in order to start with fresh. 3.) The smaller footprint of the squarish Lattissima Touch milk container fit in our frig better than the taller, round container of the Pro.
A word on filling the water container on any of these machines: The container is on the back side, which you cannot see from the picture. The lid is not removable. The lid lifts forward (the hinge at the front of the container). The whole water container lifts up and out—it does not shift to the side until after you lift it up several inches. If you can slide the machine forward each time you want to change/add water, you do not have a problem if you keep your machine under a cabinet overhang. But if you don’t want to be moving your machine forward and back, you must have a good amount of clearance between the machine and the cabinet above it.
Regarding the Nespresso coffee blends. I personally cannot find a better coffee offered anywhere. The coffee masters at Nespresso are outstanding at what they do. Plus, the assortment--both caffeinated and decaffeinated--is the largest I've found, unless you are lumping K-cups into your choices. (Which you should not do: K-cup flavor cannot come close to Nespresso coffees. But there are a lot of choices out there!)
Regarding ordering capsules from the Nespresso website: I have been ordering directly from Nespresso for 6 years, since I bought my first Nespresso machine. I always found the best capsule price and selection on the website. Used to be that members of the “Club” got free shipping, but that is no longer true for just any size order, ordered at any time. But Nespresso still offers free shipping for large orders and has promotions throughout the year to induce its members to try “Limited Edition” blends, so I buy a five-pack of the Limited Edition and augment the order with our usual favorites, and get free shipping that way. Customer Service is superbly excellent, the website is beautiful and continuously updated, and shipping is two-business-day. No tax on coffee. Tax on machines, cups, accessories, cleaners and such.
When you buy a Nespresso machine, it is definitely a great idea to accept Nespresso’s offer to purchase their 150 or 200 special selection of capsules for new buyers. It is a one-time offer and, unless you buy another machine in the future, you won’t ever have the chance again to sample a sleeve of all the Grand Crus and get some free stuff. I ordered a capsule “Discovery Package” when I bought my first machine and it came with a beautiful black wooden box that displays the capsules like little gems. We are still using that box, and can’t be without it. Right now, looking at the “Smart Start” brochure that comes in the box, I see that they still offer that with the 200 Discovery Pack. You also have a choice of a clear Totem capsule dispenser, or a clear cube with the 150 capsule package.
UPDATE: April 2017 - I bought this machine November 2016. Today, the frother emits only steam. No milk. The milk is fresh and cold. Have no idea what's wrong, but I certainly expected this thing to operate correctly more than six months. I'll get in touch with Nespresso, but I'm very disappointed at the moment.
