Lavazza Italian Fantasia Coffee Maker Review

(Last Updated On: September 21, 2015)

If like me you have ever visited the wonderful country of Italy, then you will know that Lavazza are Italian coffee experts of renown. There is nothing quite like sitting in an Italian cafe, sipping an espresso, made with this coffee.

Their coffee is now served in cafes and restaurants around the world. It has certainly earned a very high reputation! So why not make it at home???

With this stylish Fantasia machine, it’s easy to create Italian-style coffee in your own home with a depth of crema that any Lavazza barista would be proud of. Remember, it’s all about the crema!!

It has a simple touch-sensitive control panel with pre-set programmes that can be amended to suit your personal taste and the efficient Thermoblock boiler heats quickly to make great coffee.

It will even froth milk to your preference, hot or cold, for the perfect cappuccino, latte or hot chocolate. A removable water tank holds 1.2 litres, enough for several cups of coffee, the cup platform moves up and down to fit your favourite cup or mug and the milk jug can be kept in the fridge if required.

There’s also an energy-efficient power shut-off in case you forget to switch it off in the morning rush. Of course, Lavazza don’t just make coffee machines, they believe that great coffee should be the focus which is why their machines only take their own, very special, coffee capsules. Includes trial pack of 12 Lavazza coffee capsules. Drip tray, capsule chamber, dreg drawer, milk jug and whisk are all dishwasher safe.

18.5 x 37 x 30cm H. Flex 80cm. 1.2 litre. 1200W.
