Nespresso Vertuo Next Features

The Nespresso Vertuo Next is a successor to the Vertuo Plus capsule coffee machine. It’s a stylish-looking machine that creates smooth coffee with a brilliant crema every time – and it’s really easy to use!

All you really have to do is place a pod inside, and press a button. Plus, you can choose between 5 different cup sizes, and the clean-up takes seconds as this machine is pretty much mess-free.

The Nespresso Vertuo Next looks expensive with its sleek and slim design, raised logo on the front of the machine, and curved lines. While it doesn’t have the smallest footprint, due to the water reservoir’s position at the back, it’s a stylish addition to your countertop and is available in a range of colors to match your decor. It measures 5.6  x 16.9 x 12.4 inches / 14.2  x 42.9  x  31.4 cm which makes it nice and slim and easy to store on your kitchen countertops, even if you’re short on space.

Nespresso’s Vertuo machines, including the Vertuo Next and the Nespresso Vertuo Plus, give you more choice in terms of cup sizes than the brand’s Original line, and you’re able to choose from five different cup sizes, ranging from an espresso up to a 41ml drink. The cup stand on this machine is adjustable so that you can use cups and mugs of different heights.

Making a coffee really couldn’t be easier: all you have to do is choose a capsule, place it inside the machine, and press the one button that sits on top of the machine. The Nespresso machine then reads the capsule and brews your coffee.

Below is a closer look at its features:

  • Impossibly Good Quality. Exclusively compatible with Nespresso Vertuo capsules featuring over 30 blends and producing velvety crema indicative of only the highest quality
  • A Range of Options. Vertuo Next makes both coffee and espresso in a variety of sizes: 5 8, and 18oz coffees, and single and double espresso. Includes a complimentary starter set of Nespresso Vertuo capsules.
  • Sleek Sustainable. Only 5.5 inches wide and made of partially recycled materials, with energy-saving automatic turn off
  • Expertly Brewed Every Time. Revolutionary one-touch brewing system uses barcode-scanning technology to guarantee the perfect brew
  • Quality Rooted in Sustainability. Not only does the hermetically sealed aluminum capsule protect the freshness of our coffee but it’s also fully recyclable. Plus, Nespresso’s recycling program makes returning and recycling your capsules easy.
