Nespresso OriginalLine vs VertuoLine – What’s the Difference?
Conclusions: Nespresso VertuoLine vs Nespresso OriginalLine
We will always recommend you taste the coffee from both types of Nespresso machine yourself before deciding what to buy, but there are a few obvious pros and cons to selecting each:
- Nespresso VertuoLine coffee machines are designed to cater to larger cup sizes. If you’re looking for a much larger size of cup to put your coffee in on a daily basis, chances are a coffee pod designed for that size would naturally taste nicer than a more concentrated ‘shot’ of coffee that you’d have to dilute!
- Nespresso OriginalLine machines are compatible with far more third-party coffee pod manufacturers because there is no barcode verification technology written into OriginalLine capsules. If you are a fan of a specific third party coffee capsule, then you would probably want to stay with these for now.
- Nespresso VertuoLine Centrifusion technology allows Nespresso to play around with subtler flavours, extracting aromas via spinning the capsule rather than using pure pressure. This brewing method also produces a larger crema / foam, so if you’re a fan of this in your coffee then we think you’d enjoy the new VertuoLine machines!
We will shortly be publishing a full guide to Nespresso VertuoLine machines and a top line review of our favourites. and in the meantime you can compare our Nespresso OriginalLine series of machines with our Nespresso OriginalLine Comparison Guide here. You can even choose based on prize & capacity to filter down to the machine that’s most suited to you!
