Nespresso, Pod Coffee Machine, Vertuo, Black finish by Krups, XN901840, 1260 W : Great tasting coffee

I was so pleased to receive the machine, on opening the box it peeled apart revealing my new best friend. No clumsy stuck on polystyrene here. Super easy to set up, in fact it took about 3 minutes to get ready and away we went. The following morning i had 4 delicious giornio coffees and cleaned the house with amazing gusto. My husband loves the coffee to and his favourite is stormio. Making the coffee is super simple and requires only one touch, the capsules look great too. I particularly like that the used capsules get emptied into a container at the back which means i no longer drip boiling water on my toes. The machine is sturdy and well built and i’d happily recommend to a coffee lover. Slightly disappointed that there aren’t third party capsules on the market as the capsules are a bit more expensive but for the taste it’s definitely worth it.

Plenty options with capsules – but only available from nespresso shop or direct. Trying different capsules at the moment. If you add a lot of milk i have found having a milk heater needed otherwise a coffee a bit cool for me.

I upgraded my trustee inissia machine which i’ve had for years. The vertuo plus in titanium is brilliant. Stylish, quiet and produces a larger coffee. The pods even look prettyi am very pleased with this machine and would highly recommend it.

We use this maschine frequently, and are very pleased with the ease of use and variety of different coffee sizes and flavours available. Definately value for money and has lasted though the ‘fad’ stage that many other of our previous coffee maschibe purchases haven’t.

Great machine which delivers hot coffee in an instant. Previously had more expensive bean to cup machines and this machine is better.

Awesome machine, i love my coffee and this machine is just perfect.

I waited to post my review until now when the pods are available for sale in the uk and i have been able to test it more thoroughly than i was able to with the ‘taster pack’ of 12 pods which came with the machine. I have a nespresso shop near me at westfield and so was able to pick up my new supplies and try some more of the coffee in store as well as talking though the new machine and its advantages with one of the staff. I have been lucky enough to have had the nespresso creatista coffee machine, black by sage, which converted me to nespresso made coffee and i’ve been over the moon with that. To my surprise i prefer the vertuo to the creatista but whether it’s the better machine for you depends on a few questions — do you like longer cups of coffee?- do you drink your coffee black or with just a little milk?- do you buy your coffee from nespresso?if you answer yes to all three, as i do, then i think it’s a no brainer – the vertuo is the right machine for you. If you like cappuccinos and macchiatos and prefer to buy compatible pods rather than nespresso’s own brand then it’s probably not and you’re better off sticking with the original style. The coffee=========the vertuo’s great strength is in making longer drinks. There are four sizes of pods, of which the smallest is for espresso and the largest for long mugs of coffee. The sizes are espresso (40ml), gran lungo (150ml), mug (230ml), alto (414ml). The creatista is fabulous for making milky coffee styles but i drink my coffee black and would generally use two pods and two cafe lungo cycles for my morning mug of coffee. Although the pod i use for the vertuo mug size (50p per pod) is more expensive that the standard nespresso pod (35p per pod) i need only use one rather than the two i have been using, so it works out fine in terms of cost increase.

Prompt delivery and obviously well made. Makes brilliant coffee on the first cup i tried. I’m now looking forward to trying all of the different types of coffee available.

  • Finally an improved version of the original Nespresso.
  • Love it
  • Quieter and simpler to use than the original, new style capsules more expensive too. No milk frother.

Buy on Amazon

Love this coffee machine, sadly you can only buy few capsules as brand new, but bought direct from nespresso, love they recycle the pods too.

I waited a long time to buy this, not the cheapest on the market but regrets – none. Everything from nespresso is pure quality, beautifully wrapped and protected for transit. The coffee is just sublime, i would recommend this is, if like me, you love coffee. Lots of different coffees, biscuits, chocolates and various accessories to chose from. Let’s not forget amazon, great packing, great service, speedy delivery.

I like the ease of use for this machine and pods are offered in different cup sizes with a full range of excellent coffee’s to choose from.

Perfect coffee every time , love the mid ranges 2 to 5.

I love coffee and the only thing that i love more is a coffee made in my new, exciting and so easy to use nespresso machine. Having lots of fund trying new flavours every day and so far i have not found one i don’t like. Thoroughly deserving of a five star rating.

The quality of the coffee machine is also good. I introduced a lot to acquaintances around me. It is regrettable that delivery is late.

Who would have guessed a nespresso better than a nespresso. It’s good, very good, and the coffee selection is good too. Oh, and if you are lucky, you might just get a perfect machine on a warehouse deal.

So easy to make a great coffee.

  • Finally an improved version of the original Nespresso.

  • Quieter and simpler to use than the original, new style capsules more expensive too. No milk frother.

Nespresso, Pod Coffee Machine, Vertuo, Black finish by Krups, XN901840, 1260 W

Great machine and good to look at.

This machine is sleek, stylish and impressive yet small enough to be unobtrusive in the kitchen. The range of coffee flavours is a delight, yet it would be nice to have more mellow capsules, a mocha for example. Our favourite was definitely the hazelino but it would have been nice to try more flavoured coffee like caramel. So many were strong enough to taste slightly bitter, such as the stormio but the fruity and floral coffees like giornio and solelio were amazing. Better than anything else on the market. One of the frustrations is that the crema doesn’t really have a purpose, it sits on top of the coffee then at the bottom of the cup. I can tell the quality of the coffee is higher than other machines we have owned but likewise the capsules are on the pricier side. It’s so simple to use which was delightful and easy to clean. The top opens at a touch and the capsule container empties cleanly with no leakage from the used pods. The centrifugal system is quiet and the coffee is ready effortlessly and quickly.

On opening the box the machine looks super sleek and really unclunky. It’s really easy to click together and get going with cleaning then making a drink. The pods are easy to use and mess free. Only down side is the pods don’t have the milk in them so it needs to be used somewhere with access to a fridge. However when you put the milk in first the coffee is soooo creamy.

I really like this, i generally drink americano or other long (and not too milky coffees) so this is great, you still have the option of an espresso however by holding down the power button you can keep it pouring to a bugger size. Water tank is huge can pivot to either side. Make sure you join the nespresso club to get £40 off your first order (best put towards one of the big selection boxes with a free gift).

Coffee is what gets me up in the mornings and the nesspresso vertuo plus is giving me more of an incentive. With a water container which can me moved to either behind,to the left or right of the machine. I have mine to the left and it fits perfectly in to a corner of my work top. The hardest part is picking a capsule to insert,with such a variety of strengths,blend and notes of fruit, spices and even chocolate i didn’t know which to start with. I eventually chose the solelio which is fruity and light bodied. The machine recognises the barcode on the capsules ‘centrifusion technology’. With one touch of the centrifusion technology’. With one touch of the lever and the top opens,insert the capsule another touch and it closes. When the coffee is brewed press the button and it pours in to the mug. This machine offers a choiceof four size cups/mugs.

This coffee machine is designed to take a new style nespresso coffee capsule- completely different shaped compared to the previous capsules which look at little like the small milk container of cream or milk you get in hotels/cafes for a single cup of beverage. The new ones are domed shaped and come in 3 different volumes. A small one which dispenses 40ml of coffee, and 150ml, 230ml and a whopping 414ml cupful. This is quite a lot of coffee enough for 2 people in our household. Krups is an established and well known brand of coffee maker. We had one for other 20 years which basically a metal chamber to generate stream. I don’t think the current machine will last that long its mostly made from plastic. There is no separate on/off button per say, when you plug it in a small button lights up which is also the indicator to show its ready. Press the button to start making coffee. I first positioned the machine on the counter top under a down lighter and then could not see the illumination of the button.

But pods are very expensive on here.

This machine is great makes a whole mug of coffee. No spillage in the used capsules box.

This is a really nice coffee machine. It was hard to do an in-depth review to begin with because of the limited amount of pods it came with, that also weren’t available for sale straight away. It was easy to set up and use. Instructions were included but it was very straight-forward. Its nice to look at and not too big so it doesn’t take up too much room on the kitchen side. The various coffees were all really good too. Overall its a lot more pricey than my coffee machine that uses beans. However i do recommend registering it online because i got a voucher when doing so and bought a ton of the pods for a pretty reasonable price. This is my treat myself coffee machine and its worth every penny.

Excellently compliments lattissimo.

I have bought this on a terrific deal as i got “ambassador discount” and with £50. 00 of coffee the net cost was £30. What a slick efficient machine. A big range of coffee and the 12 we have tried are all delicious. Beautiful creamy aerated coffee. It does many sizes automatically (250ml, 150ml, 80ml 40ml and believe it or not 414ml) unlike the normal machine which only produced smallish cups which often required an extra shot or more hot water. Buy if from the nespresso shops and you may get a good deal. It looks very modern and will enhance any kitchenhighly recommended.

Nespresso vertu plus coffee machine, i bought this as a replacement for my 5 year old tassimio that just died. This makes great coffee from espresso to travel mug sizes, the coffee is of exellent quality and always tastes superb. As i live in a hard water area i use filtered water that helps and prolongs the performance of the machine. The machine is sleek and oozes sophistication a well worth investment if you like good coffee.

The delivery is so fast; i ordered yesterday and received it today without the one day delivery. This machine is a very fine product, easy to use and clean. A little defect upsets me that is the attached box of coffee capsules is expired. I don’t know whether these capsules are fine for drinking or not.

Having been the proud owner of a nespresso inisia for the past 6 months, i was really interested to try the new vertuoplus. I have become very dependent on my coffee from the first of the day to the last after dinner, and found my inisia absolutely fantastic, but wow the vertuoplus is so much better. Firstly when i unpacked the machine, the quality feel of the main body was very apparent, the styling and finish of the capsule release mechanism and the coffee button are first class. Add to this the significantly larger water storage ( a very respectable 1. 7 litres) with the facility of positioning it to either side or to the back of the main unit. The added facility of an adjustable cup support, giving support to 4 different sizes of cup is great, ensuring no spillages and use of larger insulated coffee cups. The capsule open and close lever is really light and sensitive ensuring the head of the machine opens with a feather lite touch requiring no effort to open and close the capsule head. Once set up and put through the initialising cleaning programme, i set about making my first coffee. I chose a stormio mug sized capsule from the selection pack of 12 provided with the machine, i placed the capsule into the holder, touched the open/close lever and the machine whirred into action. Within 5 seconds the machine started its capsule identification process reading the barcode on the capsule to tell the machine the size and intensity of the required brew and then started to spin into brewing action.

My husband is a real coffee enthusiast and didn’t fancy a pod system, but he loves it.

Nespresso have a good selection of coffees for the vertuo machines. Not all are to my taste but several are good. I’d tried a dolce gusto machine but most of the available coffees are not to my taste. I’ve an older nespresso machine which is good for short coffees but all the larger sizes are too weak, the vertuo has larger capsules available so can make a decent sup or mug full as well as the espresso. Easy to use, good value as i got it on prime day, probably fair value normally.

I have had my nespresso for a couple of years now, i’ve enjoyed having it but because i like a big mug of coffee i often use 2 (or 3) lungo pods to make a long black coffee or 3 espresso to make a half decent strong latte. The vertuo has done away with this with addition of mug sizes (250ml) and alto (414ml). In particular, the mug size produces a beautiful cup of strong coffee – all the flavours i’ve tried i have enjoyed (except the vanilla one). The alto is quite big even for me and i find running the whole 414ml produces a rather weak coffee. I have set it to 320ml and it’s much better. The machine is easy to use, quicker and quieter than before and crucially there are no drips after the machine finishes so no mess at all. The pods are more expensive (up to 62p each) but it’s actually cheaper for me as i only use one compared to before. Other reviews have complained that pods are exclusive to nespresso but that isn’t an issue for me as i have found virtually all the supermarket/ starbucks/ lor pods to be universally rubbish in terms of flavour.

Wanted a nespresso machine for a long time but i didn’t like the fact it only did smaller cups of coffee so thought this was perfect. And besides amazon’s inability to deliver the correct colour (ordered shiny black, they delivered dull grey and i absolutely loathe grey appliances) this is as suspected, perfect. Is quite a hefty size and takes up a lot more space than my previous little dolce gusto machine but it’s worth every millimetre of extra space required. Produces lovely hot strong coffee, has a large enough capacity waste bin and an excellent water capacity. The coffee is simple enough to order online from their site although you do have to order 50 capsules at a time. The selection box you get with this machine gives a nice taster, but they are all fairly strong so i’ve struggled to find a coffee that agrees with me but that’s my personal tastes. There are a lot of choices in capsules however so i’m sure with a little trial and error i can find one that suits me. But if you like real coffee then splash out on one of these babies, you won’t regret it.
