Nespresso’s new VirtuoLine

Nespresso's new VirtuoLine coffee maker

Nespresso has finally given in to American and Canadian coffee preferences — larger cups of coffee! This completely re-modeled Nespresso machine has a new pod size and shape — the pods are much larger, and rounder — to complement the larger brew — up to 17 ounces.

It’s an interesting approach: the machine lets you choose exactly how much coffee you want to brew, from .3 ounces to 17 ounces. This might take care of the nagging problem of constantly having to reset your Nespresso machine to get the capacity you want.

From the start, Nespresso’s got 12 grand cru coffee blends, including a very American half-caff!

The machines come in a variety of colors, including black, chrome and red. the style is Nespresso-like: clean, stylish, contemporary. If you purchase now, Sur la Table is bundling them with an Aeroccino for only $349, plus free shipping (at time of this post).

Nespresso Cups on eBay

Nespresso CupsLooking for Nespresso brand cups like these, or other styles? They are actually difficult to find unless you have a Nespresso store near you. And you might find that the Nespresso web site only carries limited varieties, so a Nespresso cup you’ve seen years ago may no longer be available.

But, you can probably find some classic and collectible cups on eBay. We can’t endorse every seller, but you can use eBay’s rating system to find a quality seller. There are many sellers who have Nespresso cups available… here’s a link:

The Nespresso Glass Lungo Cup

Nespresso Glass Lungo CupThis is the glass you see in all of the Nespresso images… it makes for a beautiful lungo, doesn’t it? Looks especially tempting as the last drop of coffee bounces into the cup — or when George Clooney is holding it!

This cup is a little difficult to find online. That’s because it’s a little buried at Nespresso.com’s US site. You have to log in to the Nespresso Club area first, then navigate through to the “Accessories.”

If you’re visiting from the U.K., this is probably sold out there, so try ordering from the U.S. site through links here.

Cup specs:
• Tempered glass
• 150 ml, 5.07 ounces
• Approximately 3″ high (according to a Nespresso rep who measured in the Nespresso office kitchen!)
• Saucer is bicolor  black and charcoal, made of melamine

Set of 2 with saucers: $21.00.  Order now from the Nespresso Club.

Trouble seeing the cups at this link? It might be because you’re not yet a Nespresso member. Try this link to establish a Nespresso account. Once you log into your account, come back to this page and click the link again and it should take you to the glass lungo cup ordering page.

[Note: links from this page open in a new browser to help you find this page again, if you have to re-click after logging into the Nespresso Club. Sorry for the user-experience hiccups!]

If none of this works, try searching eBay for a seller who has these, or similar, cups available!
