This VertuoLine Evoluo is manufactured with pre-programmed capability to read bar codes in all Nespresso Vertuoline flavors. Almost quite like an iEspresso robot, with a pre-existing logic to analyze the value of each capsule, the machine is programmed to brew an optimal coffee shot rich in crema layers. Available in red, delux black, and gray. Note that amazon offers the models in bundle with the Aeroccino Milk Frother (An add-on for making cappuccinos). If you want to make cappuccino with your Vertuo Evoluo. You may consider looking at the Nespresso Aeroccino. It comes into handy for milk frothing.
For a lower price range, you can also consider the GCC1USRENE Evoluo models with a 40 oz water tank. This Evoluo model still has the capsule recognition technology, but with a smaller water tank. Available in cherry red, titian gray, and dark gray.
The VertuoLine Evoluo comes with a sample box of capsules with tall made for coffee, and short for espressos. Bar codes are imprinted around the rim, so the machine automatically chooses a suitable mode of brewing.
The capsule collection bin has a huge capacity. It is located on the right side of the brewer, with the same depth as the 40 oz water tank. The drip tray has multiple levels of slots, so you can tailor your shot to any cup size. Unlike other coffee machines, the Vertuo Evoluo can easily fit a regular size American mug. If your cup is small, at anytime, you can interrupt the pre-programmed feature to adjust the shot volume to your cup size.
The Nespresso VertuoLine virtually makes coffee making process, hands-free, and free from potential error such as inconsistent foam texture, water volume & crema thickness. The pressure pump is 9 bar. Decent for espresso and coffee.
To start making a cup of coffee, simply rotate the handle knob and insert the capsule into the brewing compartment. Then turn clockwise to secure the lid. Note: while running this machine, it makes a jet noise. Don’t be alarmed. It is just spinning and extracting the contents inside the capsule. To accommodate for a lower dosage or smaller cup, you can override the program anytime by holding the brew button. In general, we recommend at least a 6- 8 oz cup for a full size VertuoLine coffee.
The Evoluo VertuoLine makes a nice toasty hot coffee at 160 F – 175 F. You can make your coffee very savorable. The long shot has three levels of fluffy crema, almost like a cappuccino with extra layers.
This VertuoLine model makes a terrific gift for folks who wants a completely hands-off coffee making device – Not having ado with coffee experimentation.
Overall, the Nespresso VertuoLine Evoluo makes consistent and quality cups of espresso and coffee. Decent for beginners who don’t want any muscle and fuss with coffee brewing.
