The Nespresso Creatista and Creatista Plusfrom Sage by Heston Blumenthal take Nespresso coffee machines to a whole new level. The Creatista perfectly combines Nespresso’s coffee expertise and coffee pod system convenience with advanced milk technology and cutting edge styling from Sage. It is also the first Nespresso coffee machine to feature a fully automatic steam wand. With total control over how you want your milk textured and at what temperature, you can release your inner Barista and create your very own latte art.

Simple to use, intuitive display and controls

Two of the key features of a Nespresso coffee machine are its simplicity to use and the speed that it can create a cup of coffee. The new Nespresso Creatista continues this tradition. Although it’s a little more high-tech than most Nespresso machines. The Creatistauses an intuitive digital display screen that’s controlled by a selection knob and button. Scroll through the menu to select which type of drink you want – Lungo, Espresso, Ristretto, Latte Machiato, Cappuccino, Café Latte or Flat White. Next select the coffee volume and then, if your chosen drink requires milk you can select its texture and temperature giving you complete control over your drink. Current Nespresso machines are hardly sloth-like when it comes to warm-up times. Thanks to their Thermoblock technology you normally only have to wait around 30 seconds before they are ready to dispense their silky smooth caffeine delights. The new Creatista ups the ante to a new level. Start-up time is a speedy 10 seconds. The Creatista Plus surpasses that with a blistering 3 second start-up time.

Magic Wand

The introduction of a fully automatic steam wand is what sets the Creatista apart from other Nespresso 'with milk' coffee machines. Their Aeroccino milk frothers can heat milk but without any control over temperature. They can also create a lovely frothy foam, but without actually texturing the milk. Not so with the Creatista and Creatista Plus. Using the same steam wand technology that can be found in The Oracle, Sage by Heston Blumenthal's flagship coffee machine, the Creatista gives you full control over how you want your drink. The Creatista has four different auto-frothing textures and five milk temperature settings. The Creatista Plushas eight auto-frothing textures and 11 milk temperature settings. Again, these settings are controlled through the digital display. Place your milk in the stainless steel milk jug that’s provided with the machine, set your desired texture and temperature settings. Then place the jug under the frothing wand and the machine will do the rest. The best thing is you’ll get perfect results every time. Yes, you choose how you want your milk to be textured and heated, but as it’s an automatic procedure, there won’t be any chance of human error. This clever steam wand even self-purges after each use, so all you have to do is give the wand a quick wipe down with a clean damp cloth.
