L'OR BARISTA Nespresso coffee machine

thumbnail for this post

Compatible capsules : Nespresso

L’OR competes with Nesspresso in the coffee machine market.

For us L’OR BARISTA has ticked many advantages. We can note a very good quality/price ratio, we find this machine at 80 €, the heating time is very short and a generous tank of 1.2 L. The quality of this machine is impressive with a pressure of 19 bars. The OR Barista does not only copy its predecessors but keeps an important part to innovation.

One of the few drawbacks is its size, which can be imposing in cramped kitchens.

The L’OR BARISTA coffee machine is designed to work with both L’OR BARISTA double espresso capsules and L’OR Espresso single capsules. L’OR BARISTA offers two new types of capsules:

  • Double
  • Filter Only compatible with the L’OR BARISTA coffee machine, the new double capsules make it possible to prepare a double espresso or two espressos at the same time.

Some articles talk about inaccurate dispensing nozzles, our tests on the contrary have proved the opposite with preciously filled capsules.

L’OR BARISTA has two extractions, which is useful to make two coffees or a large one.
It measures 28 cm long and 40 cm wide.
It has 4 keys: to light, Ristretto, Espresso and Longo.
There are 2 colors: piano black or matte black.
To make a Double it is necessary to put an XXL capsule.
There is a water tank of 1,2L, and a standard capsule tank of 10 max and for the XXL 5 max.
The cup holder is not adjustable, so the cups of more than 1 cm do not pass through.
But it can be removed, which is easier for large cups.
