Lavazza Jolie: Test on noise, temperature and quality of coffee</h3 > All coffee machines produce noise, and the Lavazza Jolie is no exception. We measured the noise from about a meter away while brewing coffee and detected about 57 dB, an acceptable level for a capsule machine.

In terms of temperature, the coffee dispensed by Jolie reaches around 77 degrees, an optimal value for a hot but not burning drink. We recommend waiting a minute before tasting it to avoid burning your tongue.

Cream and flavor of coffee with Lavazza A Modo Mio Jolie

The Lavazza A Modo Mio Jolie does not disappoint in terms of cream and flavour. The coffee has a rich flavor and a thick, dark, almost perfect crema. The quality of the cream is one of the strong points of this machine, which not all capsule machines can boast.

We tested Lavazza a Modo Mio Qualità Rossa capsules, which offer a rich flavor with spicy and cocoa notes. Each capsule is filled with ground coffee from Southeast Asia, with a dark roast that enhances the flavors.

Review Lavazza A Modo Mio Jolie: our evaluation

For a capsule machine, the Lavazza A Modo Mio Jolie is an excellent choice. The quality of the coffee and cream are remarkable, almost like at the bar. This machine is economical and makes making coffee easy with its one button.

The compact dimensions (12.4 x 21 x 33 cm) make it easy to find a place for the Jolie in any kitchen or office. With a reasonable price, it boasts an excellent quality – price ratio, and is an excellent choice for those who love a good coffee without complications.

However, there are some things to consider. The power cable is a little short, but this can be solved with an extension. The manual stop of dispensing can be seen as a negative point, but it also allows you to customize the length of the coffee according to your tastes.
