Nespresso is a truly trusted brand when it comes to its wide variety of espresso machines and coffee makers, and the Nespresso Vertuo Next is just another plus to its repertoire.
You are guaranteed to have a perfect cup each time you operate the coffee machine.
The espresso produced in the Nespresso Vertuo has a thick crema on top better than most counterparts.
Other coffee sizes like the gran lungo (with 3.7 fluid ounces) and the ristretto (with 0.7 fluid ounces) also fared well and had a cream that stayed even beyond stirring.
The taste of the coffee and espresso is not burnt at all and has a consistently smooth taste due to the Nespresso Vertuo Next’s Precision Brewing feature.
Versatile Coffee Maker
The Nespresso Vertuo Next allows for making and brewing various coffee sizes, not just espresso.
The brewers can brew five sizes: an espresso, double espresso, a gran lungo, a mug of brew, and an alto XL.
This intelligent coffee machine uses barcoded coffee pods and reads them to adjust its setting to what type of brew time and coffee settings the coffee pod calls for.
Ergonomical and Sustainable
The Nespresso Vertuo Next has a sleek design that comes in an array of colors to match the decor in your kitchen countertops.
It is the most compact coffee maker and espresso machine Nespresso has since produced since Vertuo Next’s manufacturing.
Another plus to this particular espresso and coffee machine is that 54% of the materials used in producing them are recycled.
The individual coffee pods that yield so much trash, especially if we drink coffee twice a day, are now made in aluminum and can now be recycled.
It’s convenient and lessens our carbon footprint in a small way too.
This is the pride and joy of the Nespresso Vertuo Next.
Its precision brewing calls for their method of “centrifusion.”
This means that hot water pumps in the capsule and is spun at 7000 rotations per minute to infuse the water with the coffee pod’s content before it pours in your cup.
This centrifugal system, in turn, yields a thicker crema than its counterpart of the more traditional pressure-based extraction system.
In order to make sure that the Nespresso pods are brewed and made to their required brew time and methods, the individual pod has a unique barcode that the Vertuo Next will read.
The barcode contains the information about the coffee’s brewing conditions, and it will then act accordingly and brew the coffee perfectly with each command.
It’s an intelligent innovation that gives you a perfect cup each time, whether it may be a shot of espresso or a simple mug of your favored brew.
Who is it for?
The Nespresso Vertuo Next is for people who want to do the bare minimum to procure an excellent cup of coffee in the comfort of their own homes.
It’s so simple, and it really just needs help with inserting the Nespresso pods.
A potential drawback with regards to this Nespresso model is its technological innovation which is the barcoded Nespresso pods.
Because the coffee machine can read only Vertuo pods that have the barcode, and no secondhand pod coffee can be used outside of the barcoded pods.
Aside from that drawback, the machine is practically perfect.
If you could take one thing from this Nespresso Vertuo Next review, its benefit and technological advancements in making you a perfect cup outweigh its drawback.
Being sustainable and environmentally friendly also did not hurt.
You really could never go wrong with this Nespresso model.

Is Vertuo Next better than the Original Nespresso?
We will be making a side-by-side comparison between the Vertuo and the Original to answer this question.
First, the drinks; if you are partial to drinking smaller brew sizes, the Original is perfect for you.
While the Original only offers three smaller drink sizes, the Nespresso Vertuo Next gives you five more extensive drinks.
In terms of coffee pods, the Original Nespresso has an advantage since the cup-shaped coffee pods used in this line are widely available in different varieties because the patents have since expired.
With the Nespresso Vertuo Next, there’s only so much pod you can enjoy because the machine recognized the coffee pods used explicitly for this unit.
Regarding the extraction process, the Original Nespresso uses a pressure-based system.
At the same time, the Nespresso Vertuo Next has a “centrifusion” system that yields thicker crema and is significantly quieter than the former.
To conclude, if you are partial to newer and more advanced features of the Nespresso Vertuo Next and do not mind stirring out of the Vertuo pods option, then the Nespresso Vertuo Next is the best.
