Nespresso Vertuo Pop
Best coffee pod machine for quality espresso
Star rating: 4.5/5
£100£49 at Nespresso with Nespresso Plus Subscription | (save £51 or 51%) £100£79 at Amazon | (save £21 or 21%)
This is one of the most affordable machines in Nespresso's range, and is made even more so by the deals at the moment. It comes in a wide range of bright colours from mango yellow to aqua mint to really make it pop in your kitchen.
On test we liked the compact footprint and intuitive controls of this machine which make it a joy to use. You'll need two hands to secure the lid into place, which we found to be a little stiff, but after a slightly protracted set-up the machine is a breeze to use, making rich coffee with a thick crema in a matter of seconds.
Nespresso Vertuo Lattissima
Star rating: 4.5/5
£379£345 at Amazon | (save £34 or 9%)
The latest release from Nespresso, this machine is similar in design to the Vertuo Pop and Vertuo Next. The barrel-shaped console fits the large, domed Vertuo pods, while this model comes with a built-in milk frother which gives you greater flexibility on the number of drinks you can make. We found it really easy to clean, plus on test we were impressed by how simple it was to unload the pods, although the lever to insert them can be a bit stiff.
Nespresso Vertuo Creatista by Sage
Best sleek coffee pod machine
Star rating: 4.5/5
£649£449 at Nespresso with Nespresso Plus Subscription | (save £200 or 30%) £649.95£549.95 at John Lewis & Partners | (save £100 or 15%) £649.95£549.95 at Sage | (save £100 or 15%)
A collaboration between industry giants Sage and Nespresso, this machine was released earlier in 2023 and is at the higher end of Nespresso's pod machine offerings. The result is an impressive, sleek machine which offers a range of functions for a barista experience in your own home without the fuss of bean-to-cup or espresso machines.
This model caters for a range of coffee options and cup sizes, plus it comes with a steaming wand which can be programmed for a variety of microfoam textures depending on your preference.
Nespresso Vertuo Next
Best for thick crema
Star rating: 4/5
£149£79 at Nespresso with Nespresso Plus Subscription | (save £70 or 47%) £167.99£119 at Amazon | (save £48.99 or 29%)
The Vertuo Next has the same design as many of the Nespresso's Vertuo with a barrel-shaped central console where you can choose between colours. This adds to the stylish nature of the Vertuo Next, with the rest of the machine featuring a slick matte black plastic and the water tank at the back of the machine.
Our favourite feature of this model on test was the thick, bubbly crema which is more like a super-fine whipped foam than a traditional crema, but is difficult to achieve on a pod machine and is a welcome addition to an espresso.
Nespresso Lattissima One by De'Longhi
Best for milky coffees
Star rating: 3.5/5
This coffee pod machine is ideal if you're a small household regularly making a single coffee at a time. It has a single-serve milk frothing container which is inserted into the front of the machine, making it easy to remove and fill as well as clean.
A result of a collaboration between Nespresso and De'Longhi, this model has the technology to brew and extract richly aromatic shots of coffee. You can personalise the settings for each coffee and save favourites to make it quicker in the morning.
Nespresso has two different types of pods on offer: the Original pods and the Vertuo pods. These correspond to their respective machines, meaning you can't use a Vertuo pod on an Original machine and vice versa. While the pods can get expensive, when you order a machine from Nespresso you'll get a mixed box of pods to get you started. You can then order as and when you need them, or subscribe to save. Nespresso pods can be bought as individual flavours, or in selection boxes.
Get a free sleeve when you order over 70 capsules
As part of its subscription service, Nespresso gives customers a complimentary sleeve of 10 pods when you order over 70 capsules. The subscription service works by allowing you to choose how frequently you'd like pods to be delivered depending on how many you've selected which will then be delivered on a regular basis to make sure you never run out.
As part of signing up to this subscription you can also make some of the largest savings on selected Vertuo pod machines.
With so many different deals out there, it can be hard to know if you're making a real saving. Our experts are here to help, with years of experience sorting the deals from the duds to help you get a good deal. Reading reviews can be helpful in deciding between the pros and cons of different machines, and luckily we've tested a whole selection of Nespresso machines to help you find the right one.
The first thing we look for in a good deal is how much the saving is, both as a sum of money but also as a percentage of the original cost. Broadly, we consider a saving of over 20 per cent to be a good deal, but there are always other factors to consider. These can include any pod savings included with the machine, or any accessories which you might have otherwise purchased like a milk frother.
As pod coffee machines, Nespresso coffee machines are very easy to use. There's no grinding, weighing or tamping involved; everything is done for you as the pre-ground coffee is housed in a little coffee pod.
First, and no surprises here, turn the coffee machine on. Ensure that the water tank has enough water for your coffee. The machine won't be ready to use straight away, as it needs to heat up. This process is indicated by a slow blinking light; this will vary depending on the model you have. Once the machine has come up to temperature, the lights on the front will illuminate.
Then you can drop your pod into the machine. Nespresso have two different pod ranges. They're two different shapes and are not interchangeable between machines.
The pod-shape is their Original. This pod is compatible with the following models:
- Gran Lattissima
- Creatista Plus
- Creatista Pro
The second, newer shape, is the Vertuo, and it's compatible with:
- Vertuo Manual
- Vertuo Pop
- Vertuo Creatista
- Vertuo Plus
- Vertuo Next
- Vertuo Lattissima
Once the correct pod has been inserted into the machine, you can close the lid. Don't forget to pop a mug underneath the spout. If you're just after an espresso, some models come with adjustable height positions to ensure things are kept tidy.
Select your desired coffee option, this can range from everything from espressos to cappuccinos, depending on the machine, and let the Nespresso machine do the work for you.
A steady light will appear once the coffee machine has finished, leaving you to enjoy your hot drink.
Be sure to remove the used coffee pod once you're done. The will collect in a little bin inside the machine and can be recycled after use.
Our experts have experience hunting for deals across all the biggest sales events and know how to cut through the noise to find the best savings. The first thing we look at when finding deals is the retailer — we always recommend shopping through a trusted retailer rather than an unknown name where you might be at risk of scams.
Over recent years, we've seen a rise in the number of false deals around, especially when it comes to trending models like Nespresso. Our best advice is that if a deal seems too good to be true, then it probably is.
