Coffee-lovers will be ecstatic to know that Nespresso has launched a new coffee brewing system in South Africa known as the Vertuo, which brings a revolutionary coffee-brewing technology into the comfort of your home.
What makes it so special?
While the Vertuo may look quite similar to previous Nespresso machines, this new device uses completely new capsules, as well as utilises the brand’s centrifusion technology, rather than the normal bar pressure system found in other machines. At the touch of a button, the intelligent system reads and recognises the unique barcode on each new, larger capsule, adjusting the flow and volume of water, temperature, infusion time and capsule rotation to extract a high quality dark, full-bodied coffee, finished with a silky and generous crema.
Due to the larger capsules and adjustability of the Centrifusion brewing system, the Vertuo offers over 30 unique coffee blends and single origins in a range of 5 cup sizes for coffee lovers to enjoy, whether it be an indulgent Cappuccino for a coffee break, a Gran Lungo after lunch or an Espresso in the afternoon. The 5 cup sizes include the Carafe Pour-Over Style (535ml), Signature Coffee Mug (230ml), Gran Lungo (150ml), Double Espresso (80ml) and Espresso (40ml).
The Vertuo has previously launched in a number of countries across North America, Europe and Asia to a great reception, so having the machine available in South Africa is a huge plus for SA coffee-lovers.
Nespresso South Africa currently has 3 models in the Vertuo Next range, with Nespresso Vertuo Next, Vertuo Next Premium and, Vertuo Next Deluxe in sleek and modern colours. All of the machines have the simple one-touch button mechanism and feature the centrifusion technology.
The Vertuo Next comes in three colours: Light Grey, Cherry Red and Matt Black. While Vertuo Next Premium is available in Classic Black and Vertuo Next Deluxe is available in Dark Chrome. The new Nespresso Vertuo system, coffees and accessories are now in Nespresso boutiques and online at via Nespresso’s website.
