Nespresso Magimix VertuoPlus Review

To make a cup of coffee, the Nespresso Magimix VertuoPlus clever capsule coffee machine uses “centrifusion extraction technology and automatic blend identification.” After inserting a capsule, the machine will take around 25 seconds to heat up, calibrate to the blend, then gently extract the drink by combining the coffee grounds with water.

While water is pushed through the capsule, it spins at a rate specific to the blend, forcing coffee to escape the capsule and combining it with air as it reaches the wall to create an extremely deep crema. On first use, we were astounded by how thick the crema was — over an inch thick, to be exact.

While the Magimix VertuoPlus does not include a milk frother, the design is simple and straightforward, making it an excellent countertop option for individuals who prefer black coffee. It can brew four cup sizes: 40ml espresso, 150ml gran lungo, 230ml mug, and alto 414ml, and it uses Grand Cru Nespresso capsules, which are somewhat different in form than ordinary Nespresso capsules.

There are 20 flavours to choose from in three capsule sizes for large, medium, and small espressos, and the quality of flavour in each blend pleasantly surprised us in our testing – the delicate and fruity ‘Elvazio’ was a particular hit, and the sweet flavour of ‘Caramelizio’ was also a popular choice.


Makes a delicious crema in a short amount of time.


Only Nespresso capsules are available; no milk frother is included.
