Both Nespresso Lattissima One and Lattissima Touch are part of the Nespresso original line series manufactured by Delonghi.

Our Choice | Lattissima Touch

Nespresso Lattissima one is a good machine with an elegant design but I prefer Lattissima touch over one Next. Because:

  • Have more drink options
  • Have a hot milk option (This feature is handy for preparing hot chocolates).
  • Have an option for adjusting the milk froth
  • The taste of Cappuccino from Lattissima touch is better.

Among Original line machines: There are two series that stand above all others.

What are the differences between Nespresso Lattissima One and TOuch

Lattissima One and Lattissima Touch are one of the best-selling coffee makers by DeLonghi. Both these models seem to look similar to many users as their design and features are almost identical, but there are also some differences between them.


Lattissima One Offers Three Selection Of Drinks with the touch of a single button.

  1. Espresso
  2. Lungo
  3. Milk-based drinks such as Espresso Macchiato, Latte Macchiato, and full latte

The first button is for Espresso, the second is for the lungo and the third button is for milk-based drinks. You can prepare Espresso macchiato, Cappuccino, or full latte by adjusting the amount of milk in the frother.

Lattissima Touch offers six selections of drinks just on a single touch, including

  1. Espresso
  2. Long
  3. Creamy Latte
  4. Cappuccino
  5. Latte Macchiato
  6. Hot milk

Unlike Lattissima one, the Lattissima Touch has six buttons at the top.

You don’t have to worry about the amount of milk in the frother. You just have to push your favorite button and the machine will automatically take the amount of milk it needs from the frother.

Here Lattissima touch is a clear winner, you can easily prepare Espresso, Lungo, and milk-based coffee drinks with a single touch without having to worry about measuring the milk.

2) Taste of the coffee

So, here comes the main point which machines deliver the best-tasting coffee among these machines.

While both machines are capable of delivering the best Espresso and Latte but I like the taste of Lattissima touch more.

There is almost no difference in the taste of black drinks i-e Espresso and Lungo but the Cappuccino prepared by Lattissima Touch is a little bit frothier and better

3) Milk Frother

Lattissima one comes with a pretty unique single-serve milk frother that holds just enough milk for a single serving. You have to pour fresh milk every time you want to prepare a drink.

Lattissima touch, on the other hand, comes with a built-in milk frother that offers a wide range of milk-based drinks with a single touch.

The milk frother for the Lattissima Touch also allows you to change the level of milk froth, which further offers you more flexibility.

I must say the milk frother of Lattissima touch is better than the Lattissima one as it creates more creamy milk foam which lasts longer. Also, the Lattissima touch gives you the option to adjust the amount of froth.

4) Capacity

Lattissima One has a water tank capacity of 33.8oz which is slightly larger than Lattissima Touch. But it has a milk capacity of only one serving with a capacity of 125ml (0.125 liters). No matter how much milk you pour, the machine is programmed to use all the milk.

On the other hand, the Milk tank capacity of Lattissima Touch is 350 ml (0.35 liters) which gives you the flexibility to store enough milk in the container for making 2-3 cups of Latte.

Both machines of the Lattissima series have a built-in container for waste pods. Lattissima Touch has the capacity to hold 10 used pods, while the Lattissima One can hold 9 used capsules in the container.


While comparing prices, the Nespresso Lattissima one is cheaper than the Lattissima Touch. The Lattissima one costs around 400 dollars while the Lattissima touch costs around 500 dollars.

The added feature of the Lattissima touch surely justifies this higher price.

6) Design and Convenience

The Nespresso brand always focuses on delivering top-quality coffee to its customers, along with excellent design and convenience.

Lattissima one has a dimension of 12.8 x 6.1 x 10.5 inches and a weight of just 9.2 pounds, it has a matte finish with moderate gloss and a solid chrome-plated lever. Along with having a great innovative and minimalist design, it brings modernity to its users.

Lattissima one comes in four different colors: Silky White, Porcelain white, Black, and shadow black.

Lattissima Touch

Lattissima Touch has an almost similar look and dimensions (12.6 x 6.9 x 10.2 inches) with a weight of 10 pounds, it has a luxurious aesthetics with dark shades, a combination of silver and black.

Lattissima Touch offers three different colors: washed black, frosted silver, and white.

The temperature of Espresso lies in the range of 155 to 160 while the temperature of Cappuccino is in the range of 140 to 145 degrees. To me, it’s perfectly fine.

Nespresso lattissima touch vs one | Similarities

Both models have a 19-bar pump pressure, which extracts the full aroma and flavor from the coffee pod, resulting in a rich coffee with a thick layer of crema.
