Nestle Nespresso and Breville
Nestle Nespresso and Breville had created these two magnificent coffee machines using the coffee machine options they developed to the highest level. Nespresso gave their capsule system that makes coffee preparation easy and always fresh in flavor, and Breville gave their incredible milk frothing system. This way we have coffee and espresso makers that can fulfill our need for morning boost in just a few seconds.
Nespresso Creatista vs Creatista Plus
In the table listed above, we can clearly see all the differences between these two coffee machines. Many features are the same, but some of them are upgraded at the Creatista Plus model. The users required a better choice in coffee and milk temperature cos’ many of us like to drink coffee slowly and without stress. The Creatista Plus gave more choices when it comes to the beverage temperature, and the Breville improved the milk frothing system. The Plus model has 8 frothing texture levels.
It will be difficult to find reasons why the Nespresso Creatista is better than the Plus model, simply because the Plus model was created as the improved version of Creatista. That is why we will only emphasize the features that are changed to be better.
Although these coffee machines were created to look similar to each other, there are still some differences in their design.
The coffee spout and the steam noosle are placed at the front side of both coffee machine models. The only difference is that the Nespresso Creatista has a machine body made in the combination of stainless steel and plastic in different colors, while Creatista Plus’s whole machine body is made in stainless steel.
This is another feature that makes the Plus model better than the Creatista coffee machine. The Nespresso Creatista heat-up time is 10 seconds, and although we will all agree that that is pretty fast, the Plus model heats-up in just 3 seconds making your hesitation for morning shock completely disappear.
Milk temperature settings
Creatista coffee machine has only 5 different temperature settings, while Creatista Plus has 11 different temperature settings that range from 55-76°C / 133-169°F. This gives you more options to customize your favorite morning beverage to suit your taste the best.
Creatista Plus is upgraded in this feature, too. Its 8 texture levels of frothing give you the possibility to brew your espresso, latte, macchiato, or lungo like a real barista. On the other hand, Nespresso Creatista has 4 texture levels and it is still much better coffee maker than other coffee and espresso machines. It is always better to have various choices, but if you are not that much complicated and demanding when it comes to the coffee or espresso, the Nespresso Creatista could fulfill all your desires.
Water tank capacity
The Creatista’s water tank is just 0.28 oz smaller than the 60oz water tank of Creatista Plus. Since they are different in this feature, we had to explain it out of the table. This difference is unimportant cos’ it basically can’t affect the performance of Creatista coffee machine.
Creatista Plus is just a little bigger than the Nespresso Creatista if we look closely in their dimensions. This one inch of difference is hard to be noticed with bare eyesight, that is why we won’t take it as an advantage of Creatista Plus.
