Nespresso’s new Lattissima One machine aims to make your mornings easier, one cup at a time

How do you like to take your coffee in the morning? There are those who enjoy the zen of hand-ground, slow-dripped coffee, or perhaps the building aroma of an Italian-style stovetop brew. However, for a proper jolt of caffeine, the Nespresso suite of machines have made easy work of crafting an espresso-based coffee in any way you like—from a straight-up, no nonsense macchiato (add a dash of milk) to a lungo (lengthened with double the amount of fresh hot water).

But for those who prefer the creamy froth of a proper cappuccino or dreamy layers of a latte, it may be a little more challenging in a home setting. So if you’ve been relying on your local coffee shop for a properly made latte, Nespresso’s newest addition to their coffee suite, Lattissima One, is as close as you can get to having a barista in your home. 

While the machine works just like previous Nespresso models in that it can create simple espresso and lungo coffees, there’s a new design feature that will appeal to milk coffee fans. Lattissima One’s single-serving milk container is designed to minimise waste, as users can simply fill up the container according to the levels indicated on the vessel—a cappuccino will require about 50ml of milk, while a latte will use about 125ml. Angle the milk frother wand towards your chosen cup, and press the milk coffee recipe button to start the magic.

The Lattissima One will efficiently use just enough for a cup, thanks to a subtle sensor in front of the machine that signals when to stop the milk frothing process at just the right time—when the container is empty—and is the secret to making sure every last drop of milk is put to good use. In addition, the container can easily be taken apart and cleaned in a dishwasher.

Designed to kickstart even your most rushed mornings the right way, the machine is equipped to heat up in just 25 seconds, meaning you can be assured that a fresh, hot cappuccino or latte can be ready in under a minute. In addition, you can pre-select your beverage mode while the machine is heating up and your coffee will be brewed automatically when the machine is ready—so you can go off and finish other parts of your morning routine and return to a perfectly made drink.

The new, compact and minimalist Silky White model joins the Lattissima One range, and is available at Nespresso boutiques and online, priced at HK$2,688. From now until May 13, you'll receive a HK$500 Nespresso club credit voucher upon purchase of any machine in the Lattissima range, including the Lattissima One, Lattissima Touch and Lattissima Pro.

You can also win a Lattissima One machine, as Nespresso is embarking on a 10-day journey with their Morning Coffee Truck, bringing the morning ritual (and complimentary coffee!) to you between April 13 and 23. A photo station will be available to capture your most energetic, “good morning moment” at the Nespresso truck—post your best shot to the Nespresso Facebook competition post with the hashtags #Nespressohk and #NespressoMorning for your chance to win your very own Lattissima One. Check out the map on the Nespresso Facebook page to see when the truck will make its way to a location near you.
