Review: Nespresso take a giant leap forward with the futuristic VertuoPlus

Such a substantial departure from the long-established pods that have been churned through Nespresso machines for years is a bit of a risk for such a dominant company. Introducing their new Vertuo line-up earlier this year represented a huge leap for the brand, presenting several models – some made by Breville and DeLonghi – onto the market which make use of the much larger, fatter and refined VertuoLine capsules.

In December of last year we took a look at the first collaboration between the two brands – which is still very much in high demand, or so I’m told; now they have gone and taken this whole thing to the next level, sourcing what is currently the most highly sought after coffee bean in the world – Panama Geisha – to create a premium edition Mr Black that will be very limited in availability.
