SYDNEY: De’Longhi has launched the first of its Lattissima Nespresso-based coffee makers, the first to offer dedicated automatic milk dispensers for cappuccinos, lattes and macchiato.

The machines use a removable milk jug to forth the milk, which can also clean itself after each use and be kept in the fridge until the user’s next coffee.

The De’Longhi Nespresso Lattissima comes in a choice of four finishes: silver, cream, black and red. The red or cream EN66O retails for RRP $699, while the black model sells for RRP $749.00. The silver EN68OM, which has an additional cup warmer, sells for RRP $799.

All models feature a high pressure 19 bar pump, thermoblock water heating system, easy ejection of used capsules and a backlit used capsule container with a 15 capsule capacity.

Both De’Longhi machines come with a bonus sample pack of 12 Nespresso capsules, a latte macchiato glass and a glass espresso cup and saucer.
