Breville BNV220CRO Vertuo
You Coffee Bar at Home
Absolutely no need to drive out and visit a local coffee shop to enjoy a barista grade cup of coffee. The Breville Vertuo coffee/espresso machine will do all the hard work – and do it on the level.
Finally you can make a pro grade single serve or espresso cup with just one button push. This machine comes with a range of branded capsules that have one-of-a-kind aroma profiles.

And if you love your brewage cold, just pour over the ice, and you’ll be good.
What makes the Vertuo so efficient and precise? Most of it comes from the Nespresso’s Centrifusion technology that utilizes barcodes for the best possible results. This also includes the ideal crema for larger coffee cups. And if you want your coffee super hot, simply preheat the machine (as well as your cup) and get it from the first try.
The Vertuo can produce hot as well as cold froth for you. Keep in mind, however, that you’ll need to buy the milk frother separately.

Do you have to manually remove the capsules after use? Actually, no. As soon as the coffee is brewed, the machine ejects the capsules automatically. That’s what should be called a “smart” kitchen device.
Finally, you’re more than welcome to try other coffee capsules than those included in the box. Choose one from 30+ types and aromas – and start your morning with a perfect cup, each and every day. You can even put the machine on your office’s to-buy list and upgrade from that old and limited coffee machine everyone is using.

How it works:
What Is an Espresso Machine?
Some people can't even imagine their mornings without a cup of espresso with pure golden crema. They need an extra boost to make their bodies and minds work. However, it is almost impossible to brew a real espresso at home without a special machine at hand. Today, you have a chance to make homemade espresso and cut the time that you constantly waste queuing in the coffee shops for your morning cup of Joe. Espresso machine designed for home use will let you experience the whole new sensations of preparing espresso without leaving your kitchen in the morning or any other time of the day. These are stylish and simple units that will turn you into a real barista and let you brew a perfect espresso at a single press of a button. The main function that sets espresso machines apart from other coffee makers is a grinding function. It means you will always enjoy your favorite drink made of freshly ground beans. In addition, a frothing wand will come in handy if you're eager to surprise your guests with home-made foamy lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos and other milky coffee drinks.
Consumers who can't live a day without a cup of coffee may also get interested in one of the coffee machines that we've recently reviewed, while for those, who already own a coffee maker, we'd like to offer to take a look at the coffee grinders that may become a nice addition to the machine.
What Features to Compare
So, you’ve decided to get an espresso machine, but not sure what to start with, this is where you should find our recommendations handy and useful. The first thing you should definitely look into is the Type of the chosen machine. There are pump- and steam-driven espresso machines that work pretty much similar but heat up to a different temperature. Unlike steam-driven machines that use the water of about 90 degrees for brewing espresso, pump-driven machines release boiling water but under considerably less bar pressure (around 3-5 bar). Making the choice would certainly depend on your personal preferences. If you prefer a bitter taste of sprightly coffee, you would make more use out of steam-driven espresso machines while those, who prefer a milder drink, would surely like more espresso brewed with pump-driven coffee makers. Pump-driven machines are also considerably faster in brewing, halving the time required to make a cup of espresso.
When you choose the right espresso machine you should mark the Number of Cups it can make per one brewing. For example, you don't have to buy an 8-cup coffee machine if there are only a few people who drink coffee in your family. A 4-cup machine is viewed as the most popular for household usage.
The Control Settings have got to be considered as well. Coffee machines are classified according to their operation. There are fully automatic, semi-automatic and machines with a manual control. Automatic machines do the most tedious job for you; if you're looking for a device to brew espresso quickly and effortlessly, this is the one for you. Semi-automatic machines are good for more skilled coffee drinkers and baristas. They create the right pressure, so the process is still mostly controlled by the machine, however, you need to adjust the water and steam flow to make the perfect shot of espresso. The manual espresso machines are the ones you need to get accustomed to because mastering these units is a tough job for a newbie. Nevertheless, this manual machine will reward you in the long run. Not only will the machine help you sharpen your skills at the craft, it will also serve you for many years.
Furthermore, the other critical component you should note is the ability to automatically control the water and steam temperature. It is extremely convenient when a machine automatically sets the temperature for the optimal coffee extraction. 2 thermostats are the ones that help to extract the coffee properly, so you will get the nice flavor and the taste of genuine espresso in your cup.
Most of the models come with a bunch of Functions that determine the Convenience of the machine. These include a milk frother, a cup warmer, a strength control, automatic double-grinding, etc.
We hope that this review will help you choose the right espresso coffee machine that will suit all your needs and make the brewing process simple and quick.
