You can arrange collection yes. Or else drop of at a brown thomas boutique.

No cleaning really. Have to descale occasional depending how much you use the machine.

Went for Plus as I think it looks better & wanted the newer design.
Verto plus is newer and cheaper €199,

the other older one is €239 different capsules

I think there's some messing going on at nespresso, got the email yesterday to say the order is on hold because they have no red machines in stock and could I contact them to discuss options. I went to the online chat and was told they've run out and would I take a black one instead, tried to chance my arm and get an upgrade instead but no budging. I then asked how long it would take to get back in stock and was told no estimate and it could be a while so I might be better going for what they have now. I said I'd wait as the other half would kill me as all the other appliances are red. Low and behold this morning I get a notification to say my order is being packed for shipping. I wonder were they just oversubscribed as another poster was told they had no black ones around the time I was told there's no red and would take a black one. Or I should just take off my giant tinfoil hat and stop over thinking these things

I would guess it could be something as simple as someone else changed their mind or cancelled and your order could be processed in original colour..... Hope all your reds look nice together.

Did you order the 200 assorted pods or select your own variety?

Anyone looking for a brand new machine, sealed, no pods though as was sent by nespresso for a replacement machine instead of collecting to repair. Never opened as started using french press / moka pot instead. Would have to be collected in cork , pm me.

How does this deal compare to the main one?

An Essenza Mini for £59 with 100 capsules and if you subscribe you get one month of capsules free also?

If it was for a beginner starting out into the world of coffee capsules, would this be OK?

It would be OK, and some see the old capsules as an advantage, because you can get crap capsules for them in aldi or wherever.

Personally, I think the new machine is better in every way.
and the price is something around the same i.e the one you listed is 59 euros with 100 capsules, the other new machine is about double that, with twice as much coffee.

I was on the fence with this offer over the last few days, ended up biting in the last few minutes. Have the original pod machine, I will try the hundred vertuo capsules and keep/flog or gift the machine.
