Nespresso's New Coffee Machine Lets You Live Your Barista Dreams at Home
We’ve always believed that the best cup of coffee is the one you have in your hand. But once the final dregs of desperation and stupor have been washed away by conventional caffeine, the truth will jolt you awake: Not all coffee is created equal. There are average cups of joe, and there are creations by the Nespresso Creatista Plus.
The Nespresso Creatista Plus is a top-of-the-line offering by the Swiss-based coffee brand. The machine's sleek steel build is softened with vintage curves; its relatively streamlined, intuitive design belying its capabilities.
Simply put, this machine finally shatters the barrier that many coffee enthusiasts have long dreamt of breaking: a homemade cup of coffee that you would otherwise get from a café if you had the skills, hardware, and time.
That’s what the Creatista Plus puts together: the qualities of a coffee shop in your home locked in a cutting-edge piece of technology that anyone can use. Finally, you can be your own barista. Whether you're a long-time Nespresso enthusiast or just getting started, the Creatista Plus can improve your daily coffee. Check it out:
Take it from Nico Bolzico—husband, entrepreneur, and passionate coffee lover who expects an exceptional coffee daily. "It’s extremely important that the quality of my coffee is great," he says. "If you start your day and you drink your coffee and it doesn’t taste good, it’s kind of like you’re starting your day wrong.”
He's had a chance to give the Creatista Plus a whirl, and it didn't let him down.
“What I love about the Creatista Plus is the many options you have, not only for different drinks—cappuccino, latte, black, whatever you want—but within those drinks, you can decide the different levels and features for your milk, etcetera," he says. Bolzico clearly appreciates the artisanal experience of owning a Creatista Plus. "It’s really, like, you have a lot of options. You’re making your own coffee, with so many options but still in a simple way.”
He also happens to appreciate the Creatista Plus' undeniable aesthetic factor. "It makes my kitchen look even more beautiful," he says. "From a style point of view, it’s really, really nice, and my wife completely approves—that’s important."
That said, Bolzico has yet to master the machine's latte art functions. "I tried to make a flower—a 'Thylane' flower, because the name [of my daughter] Thylane means wild orchid. But I need a bit more practice."
The Creatista Plus comes with a touch screen, a proper stainless steel milk jug, as well as a fully automatic steam wand to create that perfectly textured milk, set to your preferred temperature.
The Creatista Plus comes with a 60-ounce water tank, eight froth texture levels, 11 milk temperature levels, and a three-second heat-up time. Such a broad variety of options give you a high degree of control over your coffee, just as a proper barista should have.
Sure, most other coffee machines boast a fuss-free quality cup on demand. But the Creatista Plus equips the user with control size, flavor, and the finer details. This isn’t just coffee, this is your coffee—right down to the latte art you’ve always wanted to do. It is as personal as writing your name down on a cup. More, even. As Bolzico puts it: “Because I’m unique, I want my coffee to be unique.”
Clearly, coffee by the Creatista Plus isn’t just for anyone. It’s for those who always expect a little more from their coffee.
