i have been using vertuo for one year.
I used classic nespresso pod machine before for 8 years and to be honest i don't like the vertuo capsules because
- too much crema foam
- the capsules are not strong / intense at all
The machine is not as practical as the previous one.
I will sell this one on market place and will go back to old nespresso capsule
Purchased in February 2020 at The Good Guys for $199.00.
Leaks after 3 month
1. Bought this from Nespresso shop (Bondi) on 26 Jan 2020.
2. The cup holder platform broke after 2 week (Because it was plastic) , the customer service was able to send a steel cup holder platform. ( IMHO the steel version should come as default).
3. The machine started leaking towards end of April 2020. I flush the machine weekly and have used descaling pack but no effect. I had to take it Nespresso repair shop (so 2 weeks without a machine). The guy at the shop said this is a very common problem with this line of machine also if you se...

Great when it works
This machine looks superb as well as making an excellent cup of coffee. I’m not a heavy user and would perhaps make 5 cups or less weekly. BUT, I have now had 2 major problems. First machine was replaced at 12 months as it wouldn’t reset after scaling, rendering it unusable. Now after 6 months my second machine has developed a significant leak and is going back to Nespresso for repair/replacement with an estimate of 17-19 working days. Not great reliability or service. I’ve been a Nespresso fan for years and the earlier pod machines never gave me any significant problems so I don’t think I’d recommend purchasing a Vertuo machine at this time.

Questions & Answers
I have owned this machine for just a few weeks and, due to a busy schedule, have only used up the complimentary capsules that it came with. Despite a poor history of using pods, I have been very impressed by the quality of the coffee this machine makes and was about to make an order from Nespresso when I got the de-scale lights come on. This seems a little odd to me as I have hardly used it and never have to descale our kettle other coffee machine (Ranchilio Silvia) because our soft water supply. We also filter our water before putting it in the kettle or coffee machines. Is this normal?
