That would provide a convenient place to set your cup to keep it nice and toasty warm (for a few thousand years!).

Williams Sonoma sends me emails on their sales. Today they had a $100 off on their Nepresso Vertuoline both online and in store. The frother is another $30.There is free shipping if you use the code. The sales are generally only for a few days or through the weekend.

I believe the Vertuo capsules cost more and those machines will only take Nespresso capsules whereas the original machines can use third-party capsules such as the Gourmesso capsules which are a bit cheaper.

Never tried the third party capsules though.

My husband read a lot of complaints about the new Vertuoline machine design. We stayed with one of the older models.

You can get a pretty good deal buying a Nespresso machine directly from Nestle - either 20% off or a nice credit for buying capsules.

When the Virtuoline was announced I went to see one. The design is nice but the feel is like a Keurig, a bit frail and flimsy. The price for an espresso capsule is a few pennies more than the same dose for an original line, and the capsules are larger.

I tried third party coffee for my Nespresso - Gourmesso and HiLine - but am back to the Nespresso brand.

I believe the Virtuo line has a DRM chip which locks out third parties?

Ironically Keurig did that with their newer machines and there was a backlash and they may be taking that out.

Yeah I stuck with Nespresso for my last order because they were giving $10 or $15 discount for an order of $75. The other thing is they provide free recycling of the used capsules which Gourmesso did not. I asked Gourmesso about that by email.

I just got an email from Highline coffee offering a deal. I have no idea how good the coffee and/or the deal are.

I buy my whole bean coffee at a big box store, and brew it in my drip machine. It tastes great.
