Centrifusion extraction technology

Vertuo coffee makers use a patented extraction technology developed by Nespresso known as Centrifusion. Just insert a capsule and close the lever – when activated, the capsule spins up to 7,000 rotations per minute, blending ground coffee with water and producing the perfect crema to enjoy your favorite freshly brewed Coffee or authentic Espresso.

Automatic blend recognition*

Vertuo uses an intelligent extraction system that recognizes each Grand Cru blend. Thanks to a barcode on the rim of the capsule, the brewing parameters are adjusted by the machine depending on the selected Grand Cru. There is no need to change settings. This delivers the best in-cup result for your chosen variety – all at the touch of a button.

(*Laser class 1 product).

Hello. Are you interested in reviewing Capsulier (craft your own blends) with Nespresso coffee machine? We can discuss further by email. Thanks.

Ellen Senecal says:

Brewing it into a clear glass coffee cup would show best the crema on the top of the coffee or espresso. FYI for future videos. And that “froth” is what is called “crema”.
