 February 5, 2019

By  Enda McLarnon

Thanks for taking the time to check out our UK review of the Nespresso EN550.B Lattissima Touch Automatic Coffee Machine. This is currently the biggest selling coffee machine online. That is down to the affordable price, and the great satisfaction ratings that it gets from online buyers.

This uses a Nespresso capsule system to deliver high-quality coffees in sealed and recyclable aluminium capsules for coffee enjoyment. This is a one touch system that makes great tasting coffee.

This machine is made by DeLonghi. It comes with a UK plug. You can use any Nespresso capsules or compatible capsules, from places like the Asda store or from Starbucks with this machine.

The easiest way to be sure of buying the right capsules, is to look at the capsules that you get free with this machine, and then just be sure that the ones you buy in the future are the same size and shape.

What makes this model different to other pod machine models, is that this one also has a milk container and a frothing option. Most of the other pod machines don't have this option.

By having the milk and frother built into the machine, you can then easily make a much wider variety of great coffee drink types.
