Great for coffee that will fill a mug. Coffee is really nice and well poured. I also have a Nespresso classic, and both machines have their purpose. You can get pods that do espresso size, but I prefer the Nespresso Classic (have the Lastisma which does milk as well) for Espresso drinks. For drip, plunger, etc style coffee - the Vertuo’s are a must. I think you can actually sign up for a subscription which comes with a machine (!!!) from the Nespresso site.
