Nespresso Machines & Guides Jun 12, 2023

Nespresso Lattissima is a line of Nespresso machines with integrated built-in frothers. The Lattissima line is made by DeLonghi and powered by Nespresso’s pod system.

So, what type of pods fit Nespresso Lattissima?

If you own any Nespresso Lattissima machine, including models:

  • Nespresso Lattissima One
  • Nespresso Lattissima Touch
  • Nespresso Gran Lattissima
  • Nespresso Lattissima Pro

This guide of compatible Nespresso Latissima Pods is for you.

Nespresso Lattissima Pods

Nespresso Lattissima uses Nespresso Original Pods, which are the small pods by Nespresso that are also available from other brands.

You can try any coffee pods as long as it’s labelled for use with ‘Nespresso OriginalLine’.

Nespresso Original Line Pods

Nespresso OriginalLine pods refers to coffee pods that are manufactured and sold by Nespresso. These are Nespresso’s own brand of pods which can be bought from Nespresso’s own website or from their authorized retailers like Amazon. These pods are not are NOT available in grocery stores or supermarkets.

Nespresso Barista Creation Pods

What Pods Are Compatible with Nespresso Lattissima?

Nespresso Barista Creation pods, which are manufactured and sold by Nespresso, where formulated especially to be enjoyed with milk coffee drinks (more on Nespresso For Milk).

Barista Creation pods are compatible with ANY Nespresso OriginalLine machine like Essenza, Inissia, Citiz and many more. But I thought they were worth a special mention here because milk coffee drinks are a Nespresso Lattissima specialty, so these pods are totally worth a try!

Nespresso Compatible Pods from Third Party Brands

Nespresso Starbucks Pods

Starbucks by Nespresso are OriginalLine coffee pods that are made by Nespresso but contain Starbucks coffee grounds. These pods are a cheaper alternative to Nespresso’s own pods, and they are more accessible as they are available to purchase from many local grocery stores worldwide.

Starbucks Nespresso Pods are available in their most popular blends:

  • Espresso Roast
  • Veranda Blend
  • Pike Place Roast
  • Blonde Roast
  • Colombia
  • Sumatra

Nespresso Lavazza Pods

Lavazza is a leading Italian brand that produces a lot of coffee blends and coffee capsules, including Nespresso OriginalLine capsules.

Nespresso Lavazza Pods

Lavazza for Nespresso is available in many different blends and intensities. My personal favorite are Crema e Gusto, Rossa and Oro.

Illy Nespresso Capsules

Illy is another world famous Italian brand that people enjoy around the world. Illy produces Nespresso Compatible pods in limited but high quality selection.

They’re available in Classico Classic Roast, which is a medium roast, Intenso bold roast, Forte Extra bold roast and Classic Lungo.

Peet’s Nespresso Pods

These Nespresso compatible pods by Peet’s are great to use in your Nespresso Lattissima or any other Nespresso Original Line machine. This sampler pack includes four different blends with various intensities from 8 to 11. They are designed to pull a Ristretto shot or an Espresso shot.

Can You Use Nespresso Vertuo Pods in Lattissima?

What Pods Are Compatible with Nespresso Lattissima?
Difference between Vertuo pod vs OriginalLine Pod

No. Nespresso Vertuo pods and Nespresso Lattissima Pods (OriginalLine pods) are totally different. For your reference, I took a photo of a Nespresso OriginalLine pod (on the left) and a Nespresso Vertuo pod so you can see the clear difference between the two kind of pods.

Does Nespresso Make Milk Pods?

No, Nespresso does not produce pods that contains powdered milk. Which is why a machine like Nespresso Lattissima exists. Having an integrated milk frother means you can automatically create your favorite milk based coffee drinks, using fresh milk of your choice, which produces a much better quality of coffee than milk pods.

Will Nespresso Discontinue Original Line?

Since the start of rise of Nespresso Vertuo machines, the question of ‘Is Nespresso discontinuing Original Line‘ has been more relevant than ever. Nespresso is not discontinuing OriginalLine. They will continue to produce Original Line capsules and keep their OriginalLine machines. They’ve just shifted their focus to Vertuo because it’s exclusive to them, which means, they make more money from their Vertuo systems than OriginalLine.
