Drinking coffee is easily one of the most enjoyable activities throughout the day. This trend became so widespread that the world’s need for a coffee cannot be calculated precisely. One of the most iconic scenes in the history of tv is related to coffee. This was in an iconic tv show from the early nineties, Twin Peaks, where Dale Cooper, the protagonist, enjoys every cup of coffee and says some memorable lines. There are a lot of people in the world that started enjoying coffee much more after witnessing some of these scenes. Nowadays, we have the pleasure of enjoying espresso instead of just a classic cup of black joe.
Having an Espresso machine at home was a luxury not so long ago. Today, many people have a privilege to drink cups of some of the best espressos from the comfort of their homes. You, our readers, are probably aware of how good it is to have a good cup of coffee in the early morning. Since the late eighties, we have the privilege of enjoying Nespresso’s products. This is a part of the Nestle company that specializes in the machine brew espresso and coffee capsules.
Today, we are going to talk about Nespresso machines, Naturally, it is inevitable to avoid talking about the capsules as well. According to John Beans, a coffee expert, the best choice for you would be to use Nespresso compatible capsules for every machine made by the company. You can take a look at some of them on MyFriendsCoffee.com. Let us see what we have prepared for you.
1. Nespresso VertuoPlus Machine
This is a machine that is widely described as the best Nespresso machine of them all. The reason is that it has several features that make it stand up from all others. The highlight of this machine is the centrifugation feature. You can enjoy all of your favorite beverages like ristretto, lungo, or a classic espresso. Moreover, you can even have a cup of good black Joe we talked about earlier. When it comes to the price, we can say that it is fit for anybody’s pocket. It has some exceptional and simplistic design at the same time, which is the best approach if you ask us. Sadly, it can only use VerutoLine capsules.

Because of this, it will provide you with much-needed flexibility when it comes to brewing. We can say with an the utmost assurance that you will make no mistake in choosing this machine if you want to enjoy more complicated beverages to make than just a classic espresso or regular coffee.

5. Nespresso Lattissima Touch
The last machine we are going to talk about is Lattissima we addressed earlier. It has similarities to Lattissima Plus, but it has more features than it. It features a pretty simple control system, which is located around an intuitive touch panel. This is the reason it is considered to be one of the simplest Nespresso machines to use of them all. Moreover, the brewing process is pretty short but highly effective. At the same time, the machine has some built-in features, like espresso, lungo, cappuccino, and many more. It has a drip that can slide and it can be used for serving coffee in bigger cups. One of the best things about this machine is its 19-bar pump. This is the main reason we believe that it is more than competent to be highly competitive with other Nespresso machines.
