The Nespresso VertuoLine is a new type of Nespresso machine that is designed especially for the North American market.  A regular Nespresso machine brews an espresso size cup size. However, many Americans prefer larger-sized cups of coffee, and this is possible with the VertuoLine. It offers two cup sizes, regular and large. Another unique feature is a built-in scanner that can identify the coffee contained in the different cups, and can adjust the brewing accordingly. This feature was first introduced by Bosch in the Tassimo models.

The biggest drawback of the unit it that it cannot use regular Nespresso capsules, so stock is limited to the specially made VertuoLine capsules. The machine itself is not equipped with advanced electronics, so it is missing auto cleaning and descaling programs. It is also not possible to program the machine to brew coffee according to your personal preferences, such as coffee strength and individual cup size settings.

The Nespresso VertuoLine review score is 6.3 out of 10.
