Everything you need to know about Nespresso Vertuo Capsules
Nespresso waited thirty years to adopt a 360° turn. In 2016, he launched a new machine called Vertuo characterized in particular by its "Centrifusion system". The development of this device was based on a need to satisfy XXL coffee fans. It is therefore not surprising to know that certain dedicated capsules allow you to prepare up to 230 ml. It is precisely on these capsules designed only for this device that we are going to focus.
Which Nespresso Vertuo compatible capsule?
nespresso vertuo capsules are unique barcoded capsules. These barcodes can only be read by the eponymous machine, as is the case with capsules for Tassimo therefore. There are therefore no Nespresso Vertuo compatible capsules, but rather in-house capsules designed for this device. They are currently 5 in number, but this is a number that is likely to evolve over time. Let's discover them:
The capsule with the smallest amount of preparation in the Nespresso Verto range is reminiscent of a coffee with almost perfect roundness and optimal balance. It offers you a drink with biscuity notes and lets you enjoy the sweetness of Arabicas from South American plantations.
80ml Double Espresso
This capsule skilfully combines, after a strong roasting, Robusta and Arabica from plantations in Central America. It is recognizable by the intensity of its aromas and its notes which are reminiscent of vanilla and cocoa.
