Why buy the Nespresso Vertuoline

Generally, serious coffee drinkers make a very clear distinction between “coffee” and “espresso”, so it was a little surprising to see a machine claiming to be capable of both.

Cheaper espresso makers are available, but the Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Maker boasts a very high level of automation, suitable for those who desire a nice beverage without having to take a barista course.

It is a capsule type brewer rather than requiring the user to measure out and tamp down coffee grounds; and as one of its extraordinary features the brewing cycle is automatically adjusted depending on the type of capsule loaded!

These capsules come in a wide variety of flavors, so you aren’t limited to just one taste.

Using the Nespresso VertuoLine

Using capsules instead of loose grounds takes away a lot of the guesswork for a novice brewer, and results in a uniform cup of coffee every time.

Further enhancing this consistency is the way water is passed through the capsule: it’s actually spun at high speed to make sure that every grain of coffee is evenly steeped.

Although even experts differ on the importance of a rich head of crema (coffee foam) topping an espresso, this method of brewing certainly results in all the crema you could hope for.

User friendliness is at the core of this design: there’s pretty much one button to push, and aside from positioning the cup there’s little else to do.

Unlike some machines, which can take up to several minutes to reach the perfect temperature, this machine is ready to go in an astonishing 20 seconds.

More value with an Aeroccino Plus milk frother

Having an espresso maker, but not being able to prepare cappuccino style drinks, would be extremely frustrating. What takes this product from being merely good to providing excellent value is the fact that it comes bundled with the innovative Aeroccino Plus milk frother.

Again, no skill beyond pressing a button is required, and it can produce either hot milk or cold milk froth. The taste is dissimilar to that produced by using a steamer arm, but certainly not unpleasant.

With a compact design in black and silver, neither the coffee maker and milk frother will clash with modern kitchen décor, or take up too much counter space.

The Nespresso VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Maker is absolutely packed with innovative features, this product is well worth checking out, whether for your own kitchen or as a gift.

People who’ve previously owned a semi-automatic espresso maker will probably pass this one by, but for those seeking the ultimate in convenience, this combo offers some of the best value to be found.
