Nespresso has expanded its Vertuo offering with the launch of two new premium coffee machines, Vertuo Lattissima and Vertuo Creatista, designed to make café-quality milk coffees easier to prepare at home.

Recent research has shown that 91% of Australian coffee drinkers enjoy their ‘go-to’ coffee with milk, and as many as three in four are making their coffee themselves this year (75%), either at home (66%), at work (19%), or at friend or relatives place (12%).

For the first time, unique milk solutions have been integrated into Nespresso’s Vertuo system which uses Centrifusion brewing technology to gently extract coffee aromas and flavours for superior tasting coffee with a generous crema.

Manufactured by De’Longhi, the Vertuo Lattissima machine provides seamless automation and precision, pouring the perfect balance of milk and coffee at the touch of a button. It comes with two milk preparation settings: cappuccino and latte macchiato and has a dedicated button for extra milk foam.

Manufactured by Breville, the Vertuo Creatista is the most premium machine in the Vertuo range. It comes with Breville’s automatic barista steam wand and milk jug to froth café quality milk. The steam wand uses micro-foam technology and has three adjustable milk temperature and texture settings.

Nespresso coffee ambassador, Mitch Monaghan said, “When it comes to Australian coffee, milk is just as important as the coffee itself. Until now, our Vertuo range has focused on perfecting the coffee brewing process for optimum coffee flavour and texture. Now with Vertuo Lattissima and Vertuo Creatista, café-quality milk is also part and parcel of the design, whether you prefer automated and precise pouring done for you, or the freedom to experiment with new recipes and latte art like a barista.”

Offering a premium design and finish in multiple colours, both machines extract six cup sizes from 40ml to 535ml with Expert Mode which allows Vertuo capsules to be extracted into more concentrated and thicker coffees by pressing the button twice.

Vertuo Lattissima and Vertuo Creatista are available now in Nespresso boutiques and online for RRP $749 and $1,099 respectively.
