If coffee is what you wake up to every morning, you owe it to yourself to make the best cup you can.

Yet a good brew isn’t easy for anyone to attain: you usually need extra time in the morning to stop by a cafe or brew a fresh cup on your own.

What then, is the best solution? Discover Nespresso’s Vertuo Plus machine, the brand’s new, innovative coffee system for a full-bodied, aromatic cup of coffee at the touch of a button. The coffee giant’s latest invention is revolutionising the coffee capsule market with a unique barcode technology that produces extraordinary brews for a home cafe experience.

What is Vertuo and how does it work?

Here’s how the new Nespresso Vertuo System is redefining the coffee experience. They’ve completely overhauled the coffee extraction process with their new CentrifusionTM Technology system, which spins the capsules from four to seven thousand rotations per minute, gently rotating the coffee grounds with water to produce full-bodied coffees with a naturally formed silky and generous crema.

Many have the misconception that the better the coffee, the more complicated it is to brew. This is where the Vertuo intelligent system is proving this statement wrong. The intelligent and convenient one-touch system is the first of its kind to automatically recognise each coffee capsule.

What does this entail exactly? Simply put, the Vertuo system can adjust the optimal brewing parameters to extract every drop of flavour, without having to worry about using the right settings.

Each Vertuo machine uses barcode recognition that identifies the unique code on each Vertuo coffee capsule, which automatically adjusts the brewing parameters: from the flow and volume of water, temperature, infusion time and capsule rotation to make a perfect cup of coffee, every single time. This groundbreaking technology is a first in the world of coffee.

The all-new Vertuo Coffee range

To complete this new way of enjoying coffee, the Vertuo Coffee range includes 27 different blends to match your coffee preference at any time of the day.

Besides new coffee blends, Nespresso is also introducing different coffee capsule sizes to cater to the different needs of its users. There are five different cup sizes available: Alto (414ml) , Mug (230ml), Gran Lungo (150ml), Double Espresso (80ml) and Espresso (40ml), and each capsule has been developed to a specific cup size to deliver the most optimal taste and texture.

A specific blend bound to be a local favourite is the Vertuo Intenso capsule from the Mug range, an intense long black with a distinctly lingering aftertaste and a thick coffee crema, peppered brown sugar and roasted aromatic notes.

Sustainability plays a big part in Nespresso’s value chain, and this is no different for the new Vertuo system. All Vertuo coffee capsules can be recycled in Singapore through Nespresso’s local recycling program.

The used coffee grounds are used as compost in local farms, while the aluminium from the capsules is reused to create new products. Simply drop your used capsules at your nearest Nespresso boutique or fill any bag with used capsules and pass it to the courier on your next coffee delivery.

The Vertuo Plus machines available in Singapore come in four different colours: White, Cherry Red, Piano Black and Titan, with a starting price of S$368. For a limited time, enjoy S$30 off Vertuo Plus machine with purchase of 50 Vertuo capsules.

The new Vertuo Plus Machine and its capsules are available online and at all Nespresso boutiques (ION Orchard, Vivocity, Raffles City, Takashimaya, Compass Point (Pop-Up), Plaza Singapura (Pop-Up) and Tampines Mall (Pop-Up).
