Nespresso, the leading designer of espresso pod machines (or as they call it "single-serve coffee segment"), is set to launch their latest creation -- the Lattissima -- later this year. Their newest machine combines all the beauty, functionality and ease of many of their others, but this is really a one-stop-shop for all things espresso based. All the components -- brewing, frothing, cleaning -- are inside removing any need for you to think about much more than ultimately drinking your coffee. There's a one-click attachment for frothing/steaming milk so making a cappuccino or latte is honestly as easy as hitting a button. For instance, my C190 is manual so I have to let the steam heat up and then froth the milk myself (which is still pretty easy), but the Lattissima makes making a cup of coffee in the morning -- especially when you're still too tired for manual labor or even thinking -- a snap. The machine, being produced in partnership with De'Longhi, comes in Satin Chrome and is set to retail between $600 and $700. It has a twin pump and heating system (one for making coffee, the other for frothing milk) allowing for a froth coffee to drip into your glass in about one minute. It was constructed with an adjustable cup platform in the event you're really jonesing for a tall latte and a heated upper surface to warm your espresso cups. And if you're in New York, check out the Lattissima at the recently opened Nespresso Boutique Bar at Madison and 65th.
