Why We Like It – Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother

The Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother Coffee Machine brews delicious espresso or coffee with the push of a button. If you opt for the milk frother attachment you can add a delicious cappuccino to this list. And unlike many other pod-based coffee makers, the Nespresso Machine pods are fully recyclable.

  • Compartment can hold approx. 16 capsules
  • Pods come in a variety of sizes
  • Recyclable Pods
  • Average-sized water tank
  • Milk Frother sold separately


The Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother Espresso Machine employs centrifusion technology so you can brew both delicious coffee and espresso quickly and gently without burn. Be aware that you must purchase pods specifically for the Nespresso Vertuoline because their other brand, the original line, is incompatible. The water tank comes in at 40 ounces, which isn’t too bad and can make you large batches of coffee, but is not the biggest we’ve seen. If you require bigger, consider the Nespresso Creatista Plus.


The Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother Espresso Maker is built for easy insertion and ejection of coffee capsules. The compartment on the side of the Nespresso Vertuo can hold approximately 16 capsules before needing to be replaced. The pods for the Vertuo Coffee Machine come in a variety of sizes so you can enjoy anywhere from 40oz single serve espresso to a 414 oz coffee. The machine isn’t bulky or tall so it should fit wherever you would like to put it. But if you are desperately wanting something slimmer and lighter, check out the Mueller Espresso Machine for Nespresso.


The Milk Frother Nespresso can come equipped with an Aeroccino Milk Frother, sold separately unfortunately, which has rapid one touch preparation for hot or cold milk so you can enjoy coffee espresso and cappuccino. Payment with your credit card on Amazon in the United States qualifies you for free shipping, which is always a benefit. The pods for the Vertuoline Coffee Machine can be purchased directly from Nespresso or from Amazon and as an added bonus, or fully recyclable via a pre-postaged bag you get from Nespresso for free. Another Nespresso machine, the Nespresso CitiZ, also comes with this recycling feature.

Nespresso Vertuo and Milk Frother Wrap Up

The Nespresso Machine shows it’s value on the coffee-making stage by making their pods fully recyclable. With pod-based machines coming under intense scrutiny for not being recyclable it’s nice to see a company stepping up and taking this on. The fact that the pods brew delicious coffee in delicious flavours is also a great bonus.
