Nespresso is adding to its Vertuo coffee machine line-up with its most sustainable machine yet, the Vertuo Next, with 54% of the product made with recycled plastic and all packaging 100% recyclable.

The Vertuo Next machine operates on a smaller footprint with a two-minute auto shut off and 30-second heat up time. Centrifusion brewing and barcode technology control extraction volume, water temperature, water flow, rotation speed, and infusion time, for users to choose from five different cup sizes – espresso, double espresso, gran lungo, mug and alto.

Available in three different styles, the Vertuo Next features a sleek, contemporary design in eight colours including White, Red, Rich Brown, Dark Chrome and Rich Black. The individual machine retails for $249 or can be paired with an Aeroccino3 milk frother for $329.

The Vertuo Next Premium (pictured above in Classic Black) features a refined finish with chrome accents and retails for $279 or $359 with the milk frother.

The Vertuo Next Deluxe (pictured below in Dark Chrome) boasts a luxe chrome colour and retails for $299 or $379 in the bundle.

Nespresso Oceania business executive officer, Jean-Marc Dragoli said, “We are proud to launch the Vertuo Next for coffee lovers to enjoy high-quality coffee with the versatility of five cup sizes across our range of sustainably sourced Vertuo coffee varieties.

“Nespresso is committed to sustainability at every step of the journey from bean to cup, including sourcing coffee through the Nespresso AAA Sustainable Quality Program, and our three factories based in Switzerland are supplied by 100% renewable electricity. Our new Vertuo Next machines are part of Nespresso’s mission as a brand to create a sustainable and quality coffee offering.”

The launch coincides with Nespresso’s Father Day promotion that runs until 27 September 2020. Consumers who purchase any Nespresso Vertuo coffee machine, including the new Vertuo Next range, receive $80 cashback.

Nespresso conducts ‘Coffee Curious’ survey

Nespresso has commissioned the ‘Coffee Curious’ survey to discover what’s next when it comes to consumption trends in Australia. The findings show that Australians are experimenting with their coffee more than ever with over a third of respondents across the country enjoying new flavours, recipes and emerging styles.

Sydney coffee drinkers lead the charge with 43% wanting to try new and cutting-edge coffee offerings, followed by Perth (42%), Brisbane (41%) and Melbournians coming in last at 39%.

While new coffee trends often pop up around Australia the cappuccino remains the most popular coffee in all cities. Respondents in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth all chose the cappuccino as their preferred drink. When it comes to the espresso, popularity is strongest in Sydney, with 40% of respondents regularly enjoying the shorter, stronger serving, followed by 31% of respondents in Melbourne.  

The survey found that each city chose varying cup sizes with Brisbanites enjoying a much bigger cup of coffee, with 14% reaching for a large mug (414ml) whereas more than a fifth (21%) of Sydneysiders prefer an espresso.

Given the rise of at-home coffee culture, three out of five (64%) of those surveyed would choose to have the option of barista-style coffee at home if possible.
