About Nespresso Vertuoline
As one of the most popular beverage in the world, coffee is sure taking its way into the stair of fame and this is also opening a way to coffee products like coffee machines and espresso machines. For starter, these two drink are the same yet different and the machine to make them is also different so that is why we see either coffee machine or espresso machine tag, but what if you can get both in just one product because this is the best way to describe Nespresso Vertuoline.

Nespresso Vertuoline Design
Just like many other Nespresso machines, this line also has a variant of color but unfortunately it only has two options; the black and silver. As you can see, it has a similar compartment at each of the side but the place you need to put water is on the left because the other side is where capsules get ejected when you open the machine to put new capsule. This machine water compartment can take up to around 40 oz. water but it can’t dispense hot water like those full size espresso machines.

Nespresso Vertuoline Features
One of the best thing about Nespresso Vertuoline is the compact size because even though it looks big in picture, the unit is actually small enough to not occupying much space in your kitchen or table. Another good side from the machine is the simplicity because we always want a fast operation especially those who don’t have much time in the morning. This machine is claimed to be able to heat up water as fast as 15 seconds and simple operation as easy as inserting the capsule and press a button.

When we said that Nespresso Vertuoline is both espresso and coffee machine, it is true but it is not because the machine offer a different method to serve both beverages but because it can take two type of capsules different from the company’s many other products that can take only one type of capsule. Another thing you have to keep in mind is the capsule is Vertuoline only, so if you ever use the original line, it won’t be compatible.

With this machine you can make 3 different coffee sizes consisting of espresso, coffee, and alto with liquid measures at 1.35, 8, and 14 oz. respectively. What’s interesting about how the Nespresso Vertuoline produce your drink is because it used a Centrifusion Extraction which means the capsules are not pressed like in regular espresso machines but it is spin extremely fast around 7.000 rotations per minute to create the perfect blend for you. It also don’t have a brewing options manually since the machine has a sensor that recognize each capsules and match the right brewing adjustment.

About Nespresso Original Line
Beside the Vertuoline, Nespresso already have another line called the Original line which is consisting of several similar machines like Pixie, Inissia, CitiZ, and Essenza. All of these machines come with almost the same features but distinctly separated by design and in this article we are going to pick their most popular unit, the Inissia as an example. If you are curious about these machines, check our article on Nespresso Inissia vs Pixie here. For starter, this espresso machine is a great option if you need a very compact single serving machine that won’t take up much space.

Nespresso Original Line Design
From the outside, Inissia looks just like a regular espresso machine but the petite design might make the unit appears kind of cute for some. It is also coming with a variant of color like black, red or grey just in case you want to match it with the surrounding. There is a handle bar like item at the front but it is not used for carrying the unit but to open the capsule compartment. The water compartment is placed at the back and can take up to 23.6 oz. or 700 ml.

Nespresso Original Line Features
When we are talking about espresso machine, the small capsule types especially, it is usually marketed towards people who don’t want to deal with preparing their coffee drinks manually or want to drink espresso without going to coffee shops or purchase a bigger and more expensive regular espresso machines. When considering those parts, Inissia is sure a big help because not only it can heat up water fast, it is also very easy to operate.

What you will need to do is only filling the water compartment, turn the machine on and wait a few seconds before it heat the water properly. Then, you move the handle backward to expose the capsule compartment, after you insert the capsule and close it back, press your beverage; this machine offers either espresso or lungo and to accommodate bigger cup, you may adjust the drip tray.

Nespresso Original Line Inissia is using a high pressure system to extract the best taste of your every capsules and the strong 19 bar is surely enough to give its best result. When not in used, to safe more power this machine will turn off automatically after 9 minutes.

Now, let’s compare Nespresso Vertuoline with Original Line. As you may already know, what separate them from each other is the fact that Vertuoline is using a centrifusion which spin the capsules while the other is using pressure system. Another difference is beverage option because Vertuoline with its barcode detection can serve 3 coffee sizes while Original line with its programmable buttons only able to serve 2 sizes. Since they use different system, you also can’t use the same capsules for them.
