Many people wonder whether they can use original Nespresso pods in the Vertuo machines as they are both made by Nestle Group. Nespresso Vertuo coffee machines are designed to use only Vertuo capsules. These capsules are available in a variety of sizes and colors, and each one contains a different coffee blend. There are two main reasons why you cannot use the Original Nespresso capsules in your Vertuo machine:
- Original coffee capsules are smaller than the Vertuo pods.
- Vertuo pods have a barcode that is read by the machine to adjust the brewing parameters, Original has not.
So can you use the Vertuo pods in Nespresso OriginalLine? The answer is NO. The Vertuo pods are larger than the Original capsules. They are designed to be used in the VertuoLine which has different brew parameters from the OriginalLine. These pods do not fit in Original machines, and vice versa.
Features Of Nespresso Vertuo Pods
Nespresso Vertuo coffee pods are designed for use with Nespresso Vertuo machines. These coffee pods are larger than traditional Nespresso pods and have different shapes. The Vertuo coffee machine uses centrifugal force to brew coffee, so the coffee pods must be placed in the machine correctly in order to work properly. If you go for the Vertuo machine, there are only a few types of compatible capsules available to you.
The Vertuo machines are able to extract more flavor from the coffee beans due to the centrifugal force, and the aluminum pods help to preserve the freshness of the coffee. The unique shape of the Vertuo pods also allows for a more even extraction of coffee, resulting in a richer flavor.
Nespresso Vertuo coffee pods are available in a variety of different blends, each with its own unique flavor profile. Whether you prefer a bolder espresso or a lighter lungo, there is a Vertuo pod that will suit your taste. Some of my favorite Vertuo pods are mentioned below:
Roasty & Creamy Cereal
Biscuity & Sweet
Roasted Brown Sugar
Woody & Earthy
100 – 120 mg
Fruity & Light
Features Of Nespresso Original Capsules
Nespresso Original Capsules are designed for only use with Nespresso Original coffee machines. These capsules contain a mix of coffee beans that have been roasted and ground and are sealed for freshness. The capsules are available in a variety of blends, each with its own distinct flavor profile. These pods are also made with aluminum, which is recyclable and does not affect the taste of coffee.
Nespresso Original Capsules are easy to use; simply insert the capsule into the coffee machine and press the button for your desired cup size. The machine does the rest, brewing a perfect cup of coffee in just seconds. Cleanup is easy too; simply remove the used capsule and dispose of it.
With Original Capsules, you can enjoy a delicious cup of coffee anytime, anywhere. These capsules make it easy to enjoy your favorite coffee blends without having to grind beans or measure out portions. Some of my favorite Original Capsules are mentioned below:
55 - 65 mg
Sweet & Light
2 – 3 mg
Intense & Creamy
55 – 65 mg
55 – 65 mg
55 – 65 mg
As mentioned, Nespresso Original Capsules are not compatible with Vertuo machines. However, if you own a Vertuo machine, you can still get your hands on Nespresso Original capsules. All you have to do is order them from the official Nespresso website. If not, then you will have to stick with the Vertuo range of coffee pods. Both machines offer their own perks.
