  The DeLonghi Lattissima EN680 is a pump espresso maker with an integrated frothing system. The machine engages a high pressure pump system to brew the espresso and create a frothy crema layer. Instead of using ground coffee, Nespresso coffee capsules are used to brew drinks; the capsules cost about $1 each but are sold in bulk quantities. When the brewing process is completed, the capsule is sent to a used capsule collection bin which can be easily emptied. An integrated frothing system shoots foamy milk into cappuccinos; the milk container can be removed when not in use to keep milk fresh in the refrigerator. The Lattissima EN680 is packaged with a "welcome kit" that includes a latte mug, an espresso demitasse cup, a saucer and a sample pack of Nespresso capsules.
