Nespresso in this line tried their best to give that mixture between the regular normal coffee that you are taking outside in the coffee shops by giving you a decent options of blends and flavors in their capsules besides the crema and the option of having fresh milk spume through aeroccino, not mentioning a decent water storage tank size for serving more people without the need of the refilling the tank constantly and the ability of taking off the tray of the drip or even folding it for the sake of serving different type of cup sizes.
With no doubts Vertuo line proved its existence in the market by providing a new technology, perfect taste for coffee and espresso with wide varieties that can please even the pickiest coffee lovers.
