Lavazza has become a household name around the world these days, do you know they currently account for around half of Italy’s coffee consumption, and it is the No.1 Coffee Brand in the Roast and Ground Coffee Sector in Ireland? At nearly 125-years old, the Lavazza brand is legendary among coffee lovers all over the world. When Luigi Lavazza first started roasting coffee in Turin, he probably didn’t suspect his name would become globally recognised and grow to be the 3rd biggest roaster of coffee on the planet.
While there is definitely something cathartic about the tradition of preparing, grinding, and brewing your own coffee, it isn’t always the most practical option. When you get up in the morning you want something a little more user friendly. A Lavazza capsule coffee machine, such as the Jolie, delivers. It provides the delicious coffee you’d expect from Lavazza with the push of a single button.
They make a variety of Lavazza capsule coffee machines, but the Jolie is one of the simplest and most affordable, giving it much broader appeal. Cheaper doesn’t always mean less, as the Jolie can deliver an espresso worthy of the Lavazza name. Below we’ll take a closer look at the Jolie and why you should consider it if you’re looking for a user-friendly machine that makes fantastic coffee.
Things to consider before choosing a Lavazza capsule coffee machine
Before looking more closely at the various machines available, it’s good to have a clear image in your head of what you want. Consider what type of drinks you like. If they predominantly feature milk or froth, such as cappuccinos or lattes, then either a machine with a built-in milk frother, or the separate Lavazza MilkEasy will be the best solution. Space is another consideration, as not everyone has lots of worktop space available. The Jolie is smaller than many coffee machines, including other Lavazza capsule coffee machines, so fits beautifully without taking up too much valuable worktop space.
What do you get when you buy a Jolie Lavazza capsule coffee machine?
You are buying a compact and stylish Lavazza capsule coffee machine capable of brewing authentic Italian espresso. The machine features many well thought out features, such as one simple push-button operation. It’s also an extremely quiet machine, making hardly a sound during its whole brewing cycle. It achieves maximum flavour extraction by using a 10-bar pump.
How compact and stylish?
The Jolie measures just 12.5cm across. It’s only 22.5cm high and 33cm deep, so it will comfortably fit on any work surface. The selection of three different colours are bold, but there is also the Jolie Plus Lavazza capsule coffee machine for those who want a little bit more from their capsule machine. Jolie Plus comes with 2 pre-set button, can dispense perfect dosage of espresso and lungo. Jolie plus is available in silver or gunmetal grey. Most coffee lovers are happy with the addition of a bold colour to their kitchen.
While you’ll quickly realise this Lavazza capsule coffee machine has been designed to compliment modern life, being both quiet and compact, you’ll also appreciate the stylish design. The eye-catching retro design looks good in virtually any kitchen, living up to the Italian stereotype of being stylish.
How good is it?
The Jolie Lavazza capsule coffee machine punches above its weight. You wouldn’t expect such a delicious coffee from such a small worktop machine, but it does the Lavazza name justice. You can brew double or single espresso shots with a consistently rich and silky crema. You can truly taste the full 120+ years of coffee making experience when using this Lavazza capsule coffee machine.
Perhaps the most stand out thing you’ll notice is just how easy it is to use. Even the most inexperienced coffee lover will be able to produce the consummate espresso using the Jolie Lavazza capsule coffee machine. The lever is large and easy to operate. Simply lift it up to open the capsule hatch, pop your choice of the capsule in, then close the lever. Then you just press a single button, either the single or double shot button located on the top of the machine. You can then just carry on with whatever else you were doing while the Jolie Lavazza capsule coffee machine silently goes about the business of producing a beautiful and aromatic espresso for you.
The user-friendly aspect doesn’t just apply to making coffee. All the removable parts are dishwasher safe, making it extremely easy to clean and maintain.
It sounds perfect, what’s the catch?
We’ve covered the compact design that saves you space in the kitchen, how easy it is to use and clean, its flexibility in providing free flow coffee, cater to all different drink size, and how remarkably quiet it is, but it can’t all be good can it? It’s really hard to be critical of such a well rounded and accomplished Lavazza capsule coffee machine, but if we’re forced to be super critical of the Jolie then it seems only fair to provide you with things that may bother you.
This machine doesn’t feature a temperature option. While it produces a piping hot espresso every time, more advanced users might want to opt for a different machine that allows them to control the temperature themselves. The coffee is free flow, the coffee does not stop automatically, so you will need to stop the coffee when reaching a desirable amount. Due to its compact size the water tank is 600ml. While this is large enough to produce many espressos before you need to worry about running out, some of the more expensive options have bigger water tanks.
