Although it may be less established compared to its competitors, unlike most of them, Swiss coffeemakers and coffee capsules manufacturer Nespresso serves as a one-stop shop for coffee aficionados that offers flavorful, prepared coffee and high-quality coffeemakers designed to be used at home. As such, as far as we’re concerned, Nespresso is a cut above the rest. For proof that this company is indeed exceptional, let’s take a close look at the Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee System, which is the company’s latest offering to true coffee enthusiasts.
Don’t let the name of Nespresso’s newest product confuse you. The Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee System is basically a coffeemaker—a most effective coffeemaker. Drawing from its decades of firsthand experience in manufacturing coffeemakers and coffee capsules, Nespresso designed the coffee system to serve as an all-in-one coffee-brewing machine that can help make preparing coffee anytime by yourself in the comfort of your own home easier and more enjoyable than any of the previous coffeemakers you’ve used before has managed.
The Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee System can do so by way of some of Nespresso’s new accessories along with the wide array of features that those at this company gave this coffeemaker. The most useful of all of the accessories and features that the company trusts will revolutionize the coffee industry are the Aeroccino+ milk frother, Centrifusion technology, and coffee capsule recognition-code reading technology. Currently being sold separately for $398.00, the Aeroccino+ milk frother enables you at a push of a button to rapidly prepare hot or cold milk froth perfect for cappuccinos and lattes. The centrifusion (centrifugal action + water infusion) technology enables you at a push of a button to simultaneously prepare coffee and espresso with well-extracted flavor and then be left with a clean capsule containing dry coffee that can be thrown away without leaving a mess behind. The coffee capsule recognition-code reading technology enables the coffee maker to scan the bar codes printed on every Nespresso coffee capsules, recognize them, and process them no matter how you’d place them in the container.
The rest of the useful features of the aforementioned coffeemaker are: being 12.3 lbs (19 lbs when shipped) and 11.9″ x 8.3″ x 11.9″ in dimensions, which we trust enables the coffeemaker to fit cozily wherever you’d choose to place it at home; design that makes insertion and ejection of Nespresso VertuoLine coffee capsules (the coffeemaker isn’t compatible with the other commercial coffee capsules) as easy as possible; easily removable used-capsule container that can hold up to 20 used coffee capsules, which makes keeping the coffeemaker clean a cinch; automatic switch-off mode after 9 minutes of being inactive, which makes using the coffeemaker even more convenient; and ability to heat up within a mere 15 seconds, thereby letting you enjoy your favorite cup of coffee without waiting long for it to be brewed.
Despite its wide array of remarkably useful features, a small number of consumers have taken note of a few drawbacks to the Nespresso Vertuoline Coffee System that they’ve aired online. According to them: This coffeemaker more often than not produces weak, watery, and/or tepid coffee; is noisy when brewing; lacks customization options, which can render it not as convenient to use as expected; and can be found too expensive by most consumers. The consumers also say ordering the coffee capsules can be a hassle; having to also buy the separate milk frother may be found as an unwanted added expense; and this accessory produces crema that can be either too much or foamier than would be liked. The coffeemaker, however, has received a rating of 4 stars out of 5 on Amazon.

I am a die-hard espresso fan. I love every form of the drink from straight espresso shots to lattes and cappuccinos. I currently use a Breville BES870XL Barista, it is an awesome machine. BUT, my dream machine is definitely an Italian Quickmill Andreja. Those bad boys make badass espresso. I love answering your questions, leave a comment or question below!
