Right now, when you purchase any Nespresso coffeemaker, a Pixie, a U, or a Citiz, with or without a frother, you'll receive a rebate from Nespresso, for $50.00 worth of Nespresso coffee capsules. That's like getting more than 75 shots of fabulous Nespresso coffee for FREE!
With the U, the Nespresso coffeemaker gets even more efficient, compact and affordable. The U takes just 25 seconds to reach operating temperature, speeding up your morning, yet features reduced energy consumption. The U measures just 4.5" wide, 9.8" tall, and 14.5" deep with the 27-oz. water tank in back - but the water tank pivots through a range of 180 degrees, from side to side - giving you additional flexibility on your counter. And the price makes the U the most affordable Nespresso coffeemaker yet.
The U automatically pierces, brews and ejects a Nespresso capsule; the machine can hold up to a dozen spent capsules before it needs emptying. Like all Nespresso coffeemakers, it memorizes your preferred serving size, so you get the same amount every time. The magnetic cup support simply slides out of the way when you want to slide a tall mug or glass under the dripless nozzle. A blinking light alerts you to an empty water tank or a full spent capsule dispenser. And at the heart of the U is the Nespresso 19-bar pressure brewiong system that produces a beautfiul cup of crema-topped coffee, one cup at a time, time after time. The U is the full Nespresso experience in a tiny package.
If you choose, your U can include the luxurious Nespresso Aeroccino milk frother/heater. The Aeroccino stands just 6.7" tall and measures 4" in diameter. It will give you up to 4.5 ozs. of hot, frothed milk in just over a minute. Or, it can simply heat the milk without frothing in less than two minutes, or froth only, without heating, in just a minute. It's easy to clean with soap and water and features a removable whisk.Together with the U, it gives you a complete coffee bar in a small space.
The Nespresso system - think of it as combination of hardware (the coffeemaker) and software (the coffee) - is an incredibly easy, mess-free, foolproof, and consistent system for creating luscious, pressure-brewed coffee. No messy coffee grinding, no fussy tamping, no expertise required, all you do is pop a Nespresso coffee capsule into the machine, press a button, and out comes the richest, smoothest, crema-topped cup cf coffee you could ever dream of. It's a beautfiful system, one that has, over the last 20-plus years, made believers out of more than 8 million coffee lovers worldwide.
As impressive as the machine is, the coffee is where Nespresso excels. Nespresso's coffee experts roast and blend 16 premium coffees, all from rigorously-selected, top-grade beans. 7 are espressos, with a wide range of flavor profiles, designed to be made in small cups. 3 more espressos are "pure origin" espressos, reflecting distinct regional characteristics. Another 3 are what Nespresso calls "Lungos", coffees roasted and blended specifically to be brewed in larger 4-oz. quantities. Finally, there are 2 natural-process decaf coffees. All Nespresso's coffee beans are grown in cooperation with the Rain Forest Alliance as part of Nespresso's AAA Sustainable Quality program which ensures above-market prices paid to small farmers who employ sustainable growing methods. After roasting, each coffee is immediately packed into hermetically-sealed aluminum capsules that lock in the more than 900 coffee flavors and aromas for up to 12 months.
Nespresso coffee is, as they say, not available in any store. Instead, you order your favorite coffee directly from the Nespresso Club
, either on-line or over the phone. The coffee is shipped directly and quickly to your home or office in sleeves of 10 capsules with a minimum order of 5 sleeves. Each sleeve of 10 capsules costs from $5.50 to $6.20.
