Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee Machine, 5 Coffee Sleeves, Notebook + Pen £99 @ Nespresso Store

Posted 3rd Aug
Hi folks.

There is always a bit of pod / Nespresso hate or ‘they only made this new version because their patent expired’ on these.

But I’m going to give it a try!

Red or White Virtuo Nespresso machine,

5 sleeves of coffee (50 cups),

a very nice looking green Caran D’ache limited edition pen made from recycled capsules and

A Moleskine Notebook.

I’ve only ever had the standard capsules one before but with this offer I’m going to give it a try!

—— has anyone got a higher level of membership that entitles them to 25% off machines? Can you see if you can get this for £75? Thanks

If not in hurry, you can wait until Christmas time, they do same price for machine +150 capsules for free
I switched to the Vertuo Plus a few months ago. Love it! Bigger cup sizes are great.

Unexpected positivity! Yay!
I’m at an Ambassador level and it comes out at £54.25 in the basket - which is amazing for what you get. I already have one of these machines and it’s great (I got it in the Amazon warehouse for £44)

Only refillable One’s off eBay
Guy in Nespresso shop says get the frother as separate unit.
I went through 4 of these and they all leaked, so I sent it to Nespresso and they fixed the issue, but they sent it back damaged. I couldn't be bothered to argue because I just wanted to use the 500 odd capsules i accumulated lol, but these machines are so shoddy.

I did buy through Currys though, so they might have had a dodgy batch. One thing about ordering from Nespresso, you might get a larger water tank than the one in the picture, you might get a metal tray, not a plastic one... you also might get the Square machine, not the rounded one.. but you'll always get the colour you chose.

Just my experience as I always order a new machine when the offer comes on, just because it's cheaper than buying new capsules when you factor in selling it on eBay. The other thing is if you order through a retailer when an offer is on, if your machine is leaking like mine, they wont give you a replacement machine. You have to order again, so do it ASAP, you'll then get more free capsules as Nespresso let you register as many machines as you want. Not something I did on purpose, just something I found out through having so many issues with them.

I've not had any issues with the machines for the smaller capsules though.

No. And I can bet this is main point of introducing vertuo. Carefully hidden behing "better taste&aroma" sales pitch.
Classic pod is not protected by law, so anyone can sell it, resulting in low prices.
Vertuo is still trademarked and shape patented, so you'll have to buy ovepriced capsules from Nespresso for next 8-10 years.
I hope my classic-capsule Nespresso machine will last long enough.

By the way: if anyone interested, I suggest googling for history of locking/unlocking Keurig capsules in US.
Is this the posh one for George Looney wannabes?

And the Nescafe Dolce Gusto for the proles?
