Our team was already familiar with Nespresso machines before laying eyes on the Vertuo Espresso Maker. We set our expectations high especially after reviewing amazing models like the Nespresso Lattissima Pro. 

We decided to review this product because the Vertuo Espresso is the machine that launched Vertuo. It’s where the success of this brand began, and at a reasonable price, we figured we didn’t have much to lose. 

Read this Nespresso Vertuo review to learn if this retro-modern machine is for you. 

Who is the Vertuo Espresso Maker For? 

The Nespresso Vertuo is for anyone wanting to make a wide range of coffees and espressos. You don’t have to be a professional barista to use this timeless appliance. But if you are an experienced coffee drinker you’ll have fun crafting different beverages with the Vertuo. And if you’re a beginner, you’ll love how the simple design helps you make the perfect cup of nespresso at the touch of a single button.

What Makes This Nespresso Machine Special? 

We purchased this machine in Matte Black, but you’ll also have the option to buy in black, chrome, red, or titan. We absolutely loved the retro-modern look offering a nice focal point within any kitchen or workplace. 

The Nespresso Vertuo Machine isn’t all looks though. It’s packed with dozens of features, our favorite ones being: 

  • – One-Touch Brewing. A user-friendly design is a must when using Nespresso machines. The Vertuo didn’t fall short here. With a click of a button, you’ll have a perfectly crafted coffee, espresso, cappuccino, or macchiato.  
  • – Wide Range of Cup Sizes. You’re not limited when it comes to cup sizes, meaning you can have as much or as little espresso as you’d like. With a total of 5 cup sizes, you’ll be able to create an Espresso, Double Espresso, Gran Lungo (5 oz), Coffee (8 oz) or Alto (14 oz). Prefer iced beverages? Just pour over ice and create mouth-watering drinks.
  • – Automatic Shut-Off. After 9 minutes of inactivity, your Vertuo machine will turn off. This makes sure you’re not wasting any more electricity than you have too and is perfect if you accidentally forget to turn off your machine when walking out the door. 
  • – Complimentary Gift. Who doesn’t love free stuff – especially when it has something to do with coffee? With the purchase of the Vertuo, shoppers will receive a starter set of Nespresso capsules (includes both espresso and coffee options).

Why Should I Buy This Nespresso Machine?

The Nespresso Vertuo doesn’t fall short when delivering quality cups of joe. With 16 coffees and 10 authentic espressos to choose from, you’ll never be left empty-handed. Thanks to the variety of options to choose from, users will be able to craft a cup of nespresso right at home. 

This is a great option for you if you’re looking for ultimate convenience. Heat up time for water only takes 15-20 seconds. Cup support is adjustable to accommodate different cup sizes. And then, you get a perfectly brewed cup of joe in a matter of seconds. The 40-ounce water tank is also removable for easy refilling and cleaning.

Our Verdict

We highly recommend the Nespresso Vertuo for anyone who wants to make quality coffee and espresso combos in the comfort of their home. Reasonably priced, we’re confident you’ll be just as impressed as we were with the Nespresso Vertuo Espresso Machine.
