5 Best Nespresso Capsules for Lattes

In my previous post I discussed in detail the various differences between the 2 lines of Coffee Brewing systems from Nespresso – VertuoLine and OriginalLine. Personally I think VertuoLine coffee brewing system is far superior when compared to the OriginalLine, but there are people with differing views and tastes. In this article I will try to list out the 5 Best Nespresso Capsules for lattes for the VertuoLine system. I hope you find this useful and interesting.

5 Best Nespresso Capsules for lattes: VertuoLine Coffee Brewing Machines

We have seen from our previous article that VertuoLine machines allow you to brew 2 different sizes of coffee – Espreso & Lungo.

So the capsules for this line is also available in 2 broad categories:

  1. Espresso capsules
  2. Coffee capsules

Now let us see what are the 5 best nespresso capsules for lattes to be used with the VertuoLine machines. Note again that the vertuoline coffee machines are not compatible with any other third-party capsules since it has the unique ‘bar-code’ scanning technology. Read more about this in the VertuoLine vs OriginalLine article.

  1. Altissio Capules

    • Flavor: Smooth cereal notes, full-bodied, hint of Robusta beans
    • Category: Espresso
    • Intensity: 9

  • COFFEE BLEND: A full-bodied & creamy espresso for the Nespresso VertuoLine System
  • COUNT: 50 capsules per box. Each capsule brews 1.35 ounce cup of espresso
  • ROAST LEVEL: Dark roast espresso – Nespresso Intensity 9
  • COFFEE ORIGIN: Costa Rican Arabica & South America Robusta

 

Altissio is DMC’s vote for the best Nespresso VertuoLine capsule for lattes. As one of the 4 VertuoLine capsules in the “espresso” category, its robust, full-bodied profile shines through the frothed milk. For specialty beverages, Altissio capsules are way above every other VertuoLine capsules available in the market.

2. Diavolitto Capsules

  • Flavor: Aroma hinting at oak, wood and leather, creamy, highly roasted
  • Category: Espresso
  • Intensity: 11

  • COFFEE BLEND: A highly intense & powerful espresso for the Nespresso VertuoLine System
  • COUNT: 50 capsules per box. Each capsule brews 1.35 oz. cup of espresso
  • ROAST LEVEL: Dark roast espresso – Nespresso Intensity 11
  • COFFEE ORIGIN: Central & South America Robusta beans with Brazilian Arabica

The only other intense VertuoLine espresso capsule Diavolitto lists at number 2 because of its “oak, wood and leather” profile. Personally I love its intensity — this capsule won’t get lost of a sea of foamed latte milk — but those aren’t exactly my favorite flavors in a latte.

3. Voltesso Capsules

  • Category: Espresso
  • Flavor Profile: Biscuity notes, balanced, sweet aroma
  • Intensity: 4

  • COFFEE BLEND: A light & sweet espresso for the Nespresso VertuoLine System
  • COUNT: 50 capsules per box. Each capsule brews 1.35 oz. cup of espresso
  • ROAST LEVEL: Light roast espresso – Nespresso Intensity 4
  • COFFEE ORIGIN: 100% Arabica – Brazilian Bourbon & Colombian beans

VOLTESSO is a balanced and mild espresso blend for the Nespresso VertuoLine system. Sold in sleeves of 10 capsules, each capsule brews a 1.35 oz. cup of espresso. VertuoLine machines are designed to capture the rich textures of espresso in a full size cup of coffee. Voltesso capsules drop significantly in terms of intensity. Instead, these capsules have a smooth, balanced sweetness that’s great for lighter lattes.

4. Vanizio Capsules

  • Category: Coffee
  • Flavor Profile: Subtle vanilla notes, smooth, balanced, fruity aroma
  • Intensity: 4

  • COFFEE BLEND: A vanilla flavored coffee blend for the Nespresso VertuoLine System
  • COUNT: 30 capsules per box. Each capsule brews 7.8 oz. cup of coffee
  • ROAST LEVEL: Medium roast coffee – Nespresso Intensity 6
  • COFFEE ORIGIN: 100% Arabica – Brazilian & Central American beans

 

FLAVOR PROFILE: The flavor of vanilla brings a velvety layer of taste to the roundness found in this smooth and balanced blend of Brazilian and Central American Arabica coffee beans. With milk, Vanizio becomes creamy and biscuity, for a gourmand break. The only flavored capsule in our top 10, Vanizio has a fantastic, subtle vanilla character that goes exceedingly well with any latte. The only downside is its lower-than-optimal intensity and the fact that it’s designed for long coffees (7.77 oz).

5. Odacio Capsules

  • Category: Coffee
  • Flavor Profile: Cereal note, slight fruitiness
  • Intensity: 7

  • COFFEE BLEND: A bold and lively coffee blend for the Nespresso VertuoLine System
  • COUNT: 30 capsules per box. Each capsule brews 7.8 oz. cup of coffee
  • ROAST LEVEL: Dark roast coffee – Nespresso Intensity 7
  • COFFEE ORIGIN: 100% Arabica – Split roasted Ethiopian & Nicaraguan Beans

 

ODACIO A full-bodied coffee blend for the Nespresso VertuoLine system. Sold in sleeves of 10 capsules, each capsule brews a 7.8 oz. cup of coffee. VertuoLine machines are designed to capture the rich textures of espresso in a full size cup of coffee.

FLAVOR PROFILE : An audacious blend of fine Arabica from Nicaragua and Ethiopia, Odacio is a full-bodied coffee with cereal notes accented by a slight East African fruitiness. Adding milk softens the flavor, bringing dairy, sweet notes.
