Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Capsule Machine and Bundle

Why only offer luxuriously convenient espresso when we can offer luxuriously convenient espresso and coffee? We're pretty sure that's what Nespresso was thinking when they created their newest machine - VertuoLine. Nespresso's latest creation utilizes separate (and updated) espresso and coffee capsules with a unique integrated bar code per blend.

Besides the color and size, all VertoLine capsules generally look the same. So you may wonder, how does the VertuoLine know when to brew coffee versus when to brew espresso? I'm glad you asked! You see, the VertoLine reads pressure, water volume, temperature and rotational speed from each unique bar code and applies accordingly. Fancy, right? Nespresso didn't stop there, but also created a new way of brewing capsules called Centrifusion, which combines centrifugal and infusion; meaning the capsule spins and water is injected into the capsule and infuses the grounds.

Features & Functionality of the Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Capsule Machine

  • 5 Phase System: This handy machine goes through a 5 step process (heating, code reading, pre-infusion, brewing and drying) to precisely brew each cup of coffee or espresso.
  • Locking Lever: Located at the top of the machine, this lever locks the capsule in place and pierces it in preparation of brewing. You may notice a fun "pop" as it locks into place.
  • Water Tank: The VertuoLine features a 40 ounce water tank located on the left side (when facing the machine) and aesthetically matches the capsule container on the opposite side.
  • Capsule Container: Located opposite of the water tank, the capsule container holds between 13 - 20 used capsules.
  • One-Touch Button: The VertuoLine features an easy one-touch on/off button that gradually illuminates as the machine heats up.
  • Adjustable Cup Support: Remove the adjustable cup support and drip tray completely for larger cups, or lock the cup support in one of the two higher positions.
  • Stand Alone or Bundle: Purchase just the VertuoLine machine, or upgrade to the bundle! The bundle package includes the VertuoLine machine and an Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother for those latte or cappuccino kind of days.
  • Not Just For Espresso Anymore - No longer will you need to consider purchasing a coffee maker to accompany the convenience of a Nespresso.
  • Capsules Only - As with all Nespresso machines, you are limited to just brewing with Nespresso brand capsules.
How Does it Compare?

You are unable to use the previous Nespresso capsules with this machine and must purchase the new VertuoLine capsules. Luckily, a welcome pack is included with each new machine so you can taste a variety of flavors before your first capsule purchase.

Tips and Tricks

Right after you brew a coffee capsule, fold the rich coffee crema into the coffee to release aroma and combine flavor notes.

Help! My coffee overflowed but I can't remove the "removable" drip tray to rinse and clean? There is a puddle of coffee languishing in the bottom waiting for your response...
Sherri H on Jan 10, 2015
Best Answer: HI Sherri! Just pull the chrome disk up and out of the way, then slide out the black plastic tray. I always have a tough time getting it all back, but have patience- it DOES go back! :-)

How well does the Nespresso milk frother work?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2016
Best Answer: I have a nespresso milk frother that was not purchased specifically for the Vertuoline machine. I own several other nespresso machines and I primarily use the one attached to my nespresso Gran Maestria machine. It works extremely well, and the standalone frother works similarly. Using milk with some fat content, it produces dense, creamy milk that is adequately heated. i believe in its price range, there is no better frother.

Best Answer: The round silver grill that the cup rests on has a finger hole in it. You slide it out and the then drip tray below is easily accessible.....slides in and out with no problem to empty.

How does the flavor of the coffee compare with other capsule machines--Bosch Tassimo, Keurig, or even the Lungos made by other Nespresso machines?
Laurie L on Jul 13, 2014
Best Answer: I haven't had the Lungo our Bosch capsules, but I find it to be a richer "coffee" flavor. The flavored capsules aren't very flavored either. It's a very subtle flavoring. If you love flavored coffees and many options, it's probably not for you. I enjoy the richer flavor and the espresso option and I especially enjoy the crema.

The best coffee maker ever, but having to buy 50 pods at a time is a bummer. Great tasting coffee and the frother is excellent as well. (Posted on 6/2/2017)
Won me overReview by Rhett
I have had many coffee machines... I currently have a Rocket R58 and I recently acquired one of these machines and I'm super happy with it. I use the stand alone frother and this machine and it does really well. No long warm up times and its hot enough for me. The stand alone frother does OK... not great silky foam but not bad either. There are many pods available for regular coffee currently only a few for espresso. For fast one cup I use this machine every day. Weekend I use the Rocket... (Posted on 3/4/2017)
Absolutely great!!!!Review by Vickie
I just love it. The greatest coffee. Every cup a treat. (Posted on 11/23/2016)
A WInnerReview by BJR
After years of using an expensive Super Automatic ( not one from SCG!) I longed for two things: less mess and different flavors. I may the only person who bought a Superautomatic to make coffee- but I did not realize that I would be relegated to only espresso beans if i didn't want to ruin my machine's grinder. Oily beans will clog up the works and invoke mayhem on these expensive machines.
While I realize that the selection of flavors is not as large as the previous Nespresso machines, the available ones are very good. The coffee is hot and you have NEVER seen crema ( foam? ) like this! I am very happy with my choice and believe me, I bugged SCG before making my purchase. No more mess, no grinds down the sink drain and a well built machine that delivers rich satisfying coffee and espresso in a hurry. This is not for someone looking to save money on the cost per cup. It costs more for the newly designed pods, but in my case, the trade off was worth it. (Posted on 8/19/2014)
