Frequently Asked QuestionsExpand All
What is the shelf life of the Nespresso capsules?
Our capsules are hermetically sealed for optimal conservation of coffee aromas. Two dates are indicated on each sleeve: the production date and the date of consumption. We ensure the freshness consumption up to 12 months after the date of production. The best before date is however not the expiration date as the coffee is not a perishable product. This date is recommended for obtaining the best results in a cup.

Are there generic compatible capsules for the Vertuo?
There are no generic capsules for Vertuo as its capsules incorporate new technology and have been specifically designed for the recently launched Vertuo system.
Why are the Vertuo Espresso capsules priced higher than Original capsules?
The price of the Nespresso Vertuo reflects the innovative technology and the versatility that the machine offers in brewing multiple Coffee preparations / varieties with the same, high quality in cup result. The sophisticated Vertuo capsules incorporate new technology, including a bar code on each capsule, which facilitates a product intelligent extraction system, allowing the machine to recognize each expertly developed Vertuo Coffee.
How much caffeine do the Vertuo capsules contain?
The amount of caffeine is different for each Coffee and depends on two factors: the proportion of Robusta in the blend (Robusta contains twice as much caffeine as Arabica), and the quantity of ground Coffee used to prepare the cup for our Vertuo Espressos, the caffeine content varies between 70-100mg per brewed Espresso. The content for our Vertuo Coffees ranges between 150-180mg of caffeine. The Half-Caffeinato contains 70mg of caffeine.
How does the Vertuo crema compare to the Original crema?
The crema is part of the Coffee character and as each Coffee preparation is different, the crema differs between the Coffees. The crema of Original Espresso and Lungo is dense and creamy, while the crema from the Vertuo is richer and more generous.
Is the Vertuo Coffee the same as an Americano?
No, Vertuo Coffee range is not similar to the Americano. The new Nespresso Vertuo system produces both authentic Espresso as well as large-cup Coffee with an Espresso style crema. This approach allows the preparation of a large Coffee with a high-quality aromatic profile, combined with a high intensity and body, similar to traditional Espresso Coffees, but with a much longer pour. An Americano is a Coffee-based recipe, consisting in adding hot water on an espresso. In Nespresso Vertuo Coffee range, you will find four Espressos with different intensities and taste profiles to create Americano recipe.
Do the Vertuo capsules contain BPA?
There is no BPA in direct contact with the R&G Coffee. While the Nespresso capsule contains a colored coating on the external layer, tests have detected no traces of BPA.
Do you plan to extend your range of Coffees?
Nespresso is known for continuous innovation and new product development, continuously seeking to offer our Members new experiences. Today, Vertuo range is comprised of 28 different Coffee however same as the Original Line, we are also launching Limited Edition for Vertuo occasionally but only starting in 2021.
Is the Coffee grinding process differ from the Original?
For the Vertuo Coffee we use the same grinding technology as for the Original. With the grinding parameters set by each Vertuo Coffee we can control the flow time, influencing the body and intensity of the product.
Do the Vertuo capsules contain any allergens or gluten?
No, Nespresso Coffees do not contain any source of food allergens or gluten.
Why are the Coffee blends different for Vertuo versus the Original?
Each blend is specifically created (strict bean selection, expert blending, roasting and grinding) for the best interplay and harmony with the specifically defined brewing parameters produced by the Vertuo machine. As these parameters differ from those of the Original, it makes sense that the blends are different as well.
Do you plan to produce capsules that do not add so much foam for those who do not want foam?
Each capsule is designed to uniquely provide the perfect in-cup result, Crema playing a signature role in each blend. The Vertuo system uses Centrifusion technology, gently extracting the Coffee to provide this new innovative product of Large-cup Coffee with crema. Crema, not foam, has traditionally been a feature of Espresso and Nespresso now introduces it to Coffee. The crema acts as vehiculating the aromas from the liquid Coffee above the cup and is the sign of a high-quality Coffee. Folding the crema into the liquid helps lessen the crema while still providing the full Coffee experience.
How many calories are in each Coffee?
Nespresso Coffees are very low in calories, with less than 2 calories per cup.
Can I replace one Coffee capsule with two Espresso capsules?
It is not recommended using two Espresso capsules in lieu of one Coffee capsule to make a cup of Coffee. Espresso is meant for 40ml and Coffee for 230ml. Two Espresso will deliver 80ml and it is not recommended to over extract Nespresso Coffee. We suggest you try an Americano by adding hot water to your Espresso.
Are the Vertuo capsules Halal certified?
Yes. Nespresso Coffee are compliant with the Muslim religious requirements, and are thus Halal certified, respectively
