Nespress Yourself

Is a Nespresso Coffee System for You?

If you’re considering a premium home coffee machine, there are lots of choices. Nespresso, iCoffee, Capresso… we carry them all at Snow’s, and they all have their distinct features and benefits.

Today we’re highlighting Nespresso systems, because through the end of the month, you’ll get a $100 club credit with the purchase a system valued at $199 or more*. This gives you $100 toward mail order purchases of Nespresso coffee capsules – the most efficient and cost effective way to buy them.

There’s a whole Nespresso movement out there, evident by more than $4M Facebook page likes, and the many fans dedicated to documenting their ‪#‎NespressoMoment‬. But for those of us just trying to figure out if taking stock in the world Nespresso is for us, here’s what you need to know:

How the machines work and what they make:

vertuolineThe VertuoLine Makes coffee and espresso.

Technology: Gentle Centrifusion™ extraction makes for a smooth, rich and highly aromatic coffee, with high intensity and body, finished with a silky and generous crema.

Capsules come in 2 sizes, for “long” cups of coffee or espresso.


original lineThe OriginalLine  includes a range of machines, including some that feature an integrated milk-heating and foaming system to produce lattes and cappuccinos, in addition to espresso and coffee.

Technology: High-pressure extraction system releases all of the aromas contained in each coffee capsule. This guarantees an optimum distribution of the water through the ground coffee, resulting in a smooth and authentic taste.

Capsules come in espresso varieties, or the specially crafted grand crus.

Other interesting tidbits:

  • Nespresso coffee was top rated by a Good Housekeeping taste panel
  • There are different coffee “strengths” you can choose from: lungo (mild), espresso and ristretto (intense)
  • Easy to program and use controls; intuitive “smart start” guide included
  • Brews a shot of espresso in about 20 seconds
  • Nespresso is known for excellent customer service

Another important piece of Nespresso’s platform is sustainability and environmental consciousness. They have featured their coffee farmers in many campaigns, thanking them for their commitment in quality and sustainability (‪#‎MeetOurFarmers‬). Regarding their green initiatives, they have a free capsule recycling program.

And if you’re still not convinced, you might want to indulge in one of the many ads featuring George Clooney. At least for many of the ladies out there, that’s reason enough to be a Nespresso fan.
