That's the regular "costco price". They are rotating through costcos every couple weeks.

IMO, VertuoLine is not worth it. You get the fancy name and a fancy looking machine for something a bit better than Keurig for a much higher price.

For Nespresso, stick to Original Line.

Thanks. I'm getting confused on all their models. Which model name is their original line? I looked on YouTube and most of these reviews are very old like one year or 9 months old

Depends on what you like. Original line only makes espressos. I have Vertuo Line and you can choose from 4 different sizes of pods.

There are so many, Essenza, inissia, pixie, citiz, latissima..
You can easily recognize them by figuring out what type of capsules they use. If it's the big dome shape, that's vertuoline. Orginaline uses the one that kinda looks like a gemstone, not sure how to describe it Face With Tears Of Joy

The top of the pod, flat side, bigger than a loonie, vertuoline, smaller than a loonie, originaline.

Originaline uses pressure to make coffee, vertuoline uses a spinning pod hence the bigger pod.

Overall, the Vertuo makes a larger assortment of coffee drinks and they can rival the expensive $1000+ espresso machines that I have also had. But it's the ink jet printer business model where you have to buy the Nespresso capsules straight from the source because they have a code on them. That's a huge PITA in my book. The Innissia original line can accept generic espresso .50 -.75 cent capsules but they are all inferior to Nespresso original ones if you want to drink them straight. However, when you add the forthed milk to it from the Aerroccino even the cheap generics are quite good. In the end, the Innisia line wins for me because I like Capps and don't want to buy into the ink jet pricing model - hence, I have a Brother. I have both the Innisia and Vertuo line for free in exchange for reviews, so I have no horse in this race.

LOL thanks.

I like lattes, and cuppacinos, and machiatos. Do both lines have this ability? I don't drink much, just occasionally.

Originally I saw the Latissimus plus, and thought that's awesome! But then saw a YouTube video showing how messy the milk spout is and also a pain to clean. Looks like the Aerocino is a better idea.

Yeah, so expensive per cup and it doesn't make sense with the push to reduce waste. I have a single serve coffee maker that uses ground coffee. I buy the Starbucks 2.5 lb bag at Costco on sale for $17. I think the equivalent amount of coffee in K-cups would cost hundreds. K-cups are good for people that like to drink a lot of different flavours but it's still much cheaper to buy small bags of ground coffee even if you don't use the whole bag.

Exactly! Yes, the Nespresso coffee is bit better than Keurig but both systems are horrible environmental waste of resources. Honestly, neither of them makes a good espresso anyway. And the price of the coffee pods is ridiculously high in comparison to beans/ground coffee. Plus DRM! Really for a coffee?

I only use my Nespresso when travelling as I have a Saeco for day to day, but I do use the Aeroccino daily.
The Aeroccino works better than most frothers and it's easy to operate and clean.
Never used the Vertuoline so can't comment, but the original is decent and very convenient for it's intended use.

We have both a VertuoPlus Deluxe and a older Original Line, one advantage of the Vertuo system over the OL is the double-espresso pods. My wife and I drink lattes and used to have to use two OL pods each to get a double shot, now with with the Vertuo we can use a double espresso pod so it saves us a few $. Both the double pods are pretty good too (Scuro and Chiaro) with a new double on its way (I think it's called Bianco Leggero?) but we haven't tried that one yet. Anyhow, something to consider.
