Old School Coffee drinker? Maybe this is not for you.
I like to try different varieties of coffee without the expense of ordering from a coffee house. I was able to get a great price on a new machine (Older model) and then went to the Nespresso site to set up an account. The coffee capsules for this machine look like balls that have been cut in half and are made from aluminum. The standard (original) Nespresso pod, which looks like a similar design seen for K-cup brewing machines, will not work with the Vertuo machines. Be aware of these two designs when shopping for coffee on such sites as eBay. The capsules themselves, run from 0.80 cents per pod (espresso shots) to around $1.20 (14 ounce brewed cup). Espressos are like a shot of whiskey...not much there but I still like them despite the price. For the most part, I stick to the capsules that are 7 ounces are higher so I fell like I am getting my monies worth. I have only had the machine itself less than a month so I can not attest to longevity. I did, however, purchase a two-year warranty when I made my initial purchase. Read full review
