If you’re tight for space but would still like to have the convenience of a coffee pod machine in your kitchen then the Nespresso DeLonghi U Milk Coffee Machine might be the answer you’re looking for. Branded by DeLonghi, the U Milk is Nespresso’s less expensive offering in their extensive coffee machine range.
The machine, which comes in a choice of three colours (cream, black, grey and orange), is designed with flexibility in mind and so can to fit into the tightest of spaces. Made from recyclable materials it is largely plastic but somehow doesn’t feel cheap at all. It does, however, have a few clever features like the 0.8-litre water tank which is, by default, positioned at the back of the machine but can be swivelled left or right too so that the machine is able to fit into very tight spaces.
Making a coffee with the Nespresso U Milk is as easy as 1-2-3. You simply select one of the capacitive coffee size buttons on the front of the machine – ristretto 25ml, espresso 40ml or lungo 110ml – wait for the green light to stop flashing, place your cup under the spout, insert your chosen coffee pod and the machine will deliver your coffee.
The U Milk doesn’t come with a milk frother as standard, but, in Australia, Nespresso does offer an option where you could bundle in a separate Aeroccino 3 milk frother. Other great features of this coffee machine include 25-second heat up time, programmable auto-power off function, automatic ejection of used pods and easy cleaning through its modular design. The Nespresso DeLonghi U Milk Coffee Machine retails at a very competitive RRP and is a great entry level coffee machine for those who are tight on space.
