This is the best Nespresso capsule comparison guide out there.

Seriously.

I read the manuals and did the legwork to compare all 116 Nespresso capsules — light roast, medium roast, and dark roast — so you can easily find the right one for you.

This guide is broken into 2 sections:

  • Tables for Nespresso OriginalLine Capsules
  • Tables for Nespresso VertuoLine Capsules

Which’s The Best Nespresso Capsule?

We’ve tested, reviewed, and rated all 116 capsules to give you an overall ranking of the best Nespresso capsules.

But, as is usually the case, what’s best for me may not be best for you. Let’s expand upon the Top Picks above and highlight a few more of the best Nespresso pods by category:

What are Nespresso Capsules?

Nespresso collects high-quality single-origin blends of coffee beans from the world’s top coffee bean-producing areas and encapsulates them in capsules using high-packaging technology to retain their freshness for a long time for coffee drinkers.

Nespresso produces two types of coffee capsules: original line capsules and vertebral line capsules. 

Nespresso Machines

Just as Nespresso produces two types of lines in capsules, Nespresso also offers two types of lines in its espresso machines: the original line machines and the vertical line machines.

Nespresso’s Original Line machines only accept Original Line capsules, while Nespresso’s Vertuoline machines only accept Vertuoline capsules.

Which is the Perfect Capsule for Your Nespresso Machine?

Nespresso also manufactures original line capsules for its OriginalLine machines while third-party capsules for the OriginalLine machines are not made by Nespresso but by another brand. These third-party capsules are two or three times cheaper than Nespresso’s brand capsules.

Nespresso also makes its capsules for its Vertuoline machines. There are no third-party capsules available for Vertuoline machines except Starbucks. Since Nespresso partnered with Starbucks, Starbucks has been producing pods for Nespresso Vertuoline machines.

Not sure which is right for you? The next section should help…

Overview For Nespresso Vertuo Espresso Pods

Our Recommendations for Nespresso Vertuo Espresso Pods

We tested seven Nespresso pods in the Nespresso Vertuo Espresso range: Il Caffè, Orafio, Toccanto, Diavolitto, Altissio, Altissio Decaffeinato, and Voltesso capsules. These are all delicious flavors, but the light roast Voltesso, Altissio and Altissio Decaffeinato are the best VertuoLine Nespresso espresso pods that offer exceptional coffee.

Double Espresso Scuro is a dark roast pod made from Robusta and Arabica beans from Central America and famous for its very dark smoky characters. On the other hand, Double Espresso Chiaro is a medium roast made from Central and South American Arabica beans and famous woody and earth notes. You can fit both pods in your Vertuoline machine on your kitchen counter.

Our Recommendations For Nespresso Capsules Intenso 

Nespresso Intenso Multi Blends with a variety of intense properties (Arpeggio, Roma, Ristretto, Dharkan, and Kazar) are the ultimate Neapolitan cups that give the best taste in short cup sizes (Ristretto (25 ml) or (0.85 oz), Espresso (40 ml) or (1.35 oz).

When it comes to finding the best Nespresso pod in taste and flavors– the biggest decision is whether you go for Nespresso mild or intense flavors. We have tested Arpeggio, Roma, Ristretto, Dharkan, and Kazaar, Dharkan can’t impress us a lot,  Arpeggio, Roma, and Kazar remain in the middle while Ristretto remains our favorite. The Ristretto capsule is, in our opinion, the strongest Nespresso capsule (Rated 98/100), so we recommend you to taste all these Nespresso Intenso Series capsules except Nespresso Dharkan, or you can check this variety pack.

The Bottom Line: Ideal capsules by intensity, size, and aroma from the wide range of Nespresso Original pods.

Our Recommendations: When we brewed this well-balanced Nespresso Livanto capsule filled with Arabica coffee beans from South and Central America, it gave off a freshly toasted aroma as if it had just come off the roaster. We prefer this round blend with roasted caramelized notes to all the three OriginalLine Nespresso espresso capsules: Capriccio, Volluto, and Cosi. If you aren’t satisfied with Livanto, check this variety pack with all types of espresso pods from Nespresso.

If you want to explore a range of round and balanced flavors, from light to rich, sweet to lemon, Nespresso’s espresso capsules give you the best taste of all these flavors in (40 ml) or (1.35 oz) cup size.

The Bottom Line: Unique and unforgettable characters from rich coffee-growing regions.

Our Recommendations: After years of experimenting with the pure original flavors of Nespresso, Bukeela ka Ethiopia, Indria from India, Rosabaya de Colombia, and Dulsão do Brasil, we have concluded that you have to differentiate between light and strong blends to your liking. Bukeela ka Ethiopia is best if you like light and strong, then choose Indria from India. And if you like more smooth flavors, try Rosabaya de Colombia; it won’t disappoint you.

Nespresso introduces you to four different flavors of high-quality coffee in three cup sizes: Ristretto (25 ml) or (0.85 oz), espresso (40 ml) or (1.35 oz), and espresso (40 ml) or (1.35 oz). Enjoy single-origin coffee from Nespresso-selected areas with unique and amazing characters, or try coffee capsules from all regions over and over again in Variety Pack.

The Bottom Line: Lungo is a longer extraction way of preparing espresso.

Our Recommendations: We have tasted all Nespresso Lungo flavors: Linizio Lungo, Vivalto Lungo, Fortissio Lungo, and Envivo Lungo. Rich, malty, and toasty with a hint of bitterness and a smooth texture, Fortissio Lungo capsules may be an excellent starting point for you, or check this Lungo variety pack.

Our Recommendations About Decaf Nespresso Capsules

We tested five types of Decaffeinato Nespresso capsules: Decaffeinato Vivalto Lungo, Decaffeinato Intenso, Decaffeinato Volluto, Decaffeinato Ristretto Italiano, Decaffeinato Firenze Arpeggio. The first two gave us a bitter and artificial aftertaste but the last three have made us addicted to them.

The Bottom Line: The world’s finest baristas prefer Nespresso’s new range of coffees which are perfectly crafted to go with milk

Our Recommendations: Nespresso has developed nine Barista Creation capsules: Freddo Intenso, Freddo Delicato, Cocoa Truffle, Caramel Creme Brulee, Vanilla Eclair, Cocoa Truffle, Chiaro, Scuro, and Corto. With these capsules, you can prepare your favorite special milk drinks, such as Latte Cappuccino or Flat White, etc. I prefer the Corto; its sweet acidity and bitter contrasting flavors made me addicted when I used it mixed with milk. I suggest the same to you or check this variety pack. It’ll help you figure out your favorite way to drink it in no time.
