Features and Benefits
The Nespresso VenturoLine features a unique system for creating the perfect cup of coffee or espresso that uses advanced centrifugal technology to carefully extract the beverage. Each extracting parameter is carefully designed so that all aromas can be extracted, which ensures that the coffee has a bold taste and a smooth crema on top. The system analyzes five different parameters, including cup size, temperature, rotational speed, flow rate, and time to optimize the extraction cycle for every type of beverage. For instance, the device uses a variety of pre-heating times for different brews. For a shot of espresso, the device preheats for 35 to 52 seconds. For a large cup of coffee, the device preheats for 90 to 105 seconds. The coffeemaker comes with many intermediate setting for other brews, and each setting can be customized to suit your preferences.
The VenturoLine coffee and espresso maker also comes with a premium Aeroccino Plus milk frother that offers the quality of a café-style frother with the convenience of a modern, push-button appliance. The frother comes with two whisks; one designed for hot and cold froth, and one designed for whisking hot milk (more info). To get started, simply put the milk into the stainless steel frothing pitcher, and place the receptacle on the base. After a few moments, you’ll have a rich, creamy froth for your beverage of choice.
