Voltesso Nespresso Review

Spread the love

Here is my honest review of Nespresso Voltesso. I brewed well-balanced espresso shots with this Vertuo pod and decided to share its notable attributes. 

Bottom Line

Nespresso Voltesso has attracted more attention than any other Vertuo pod due to its less intense profile. It is a blend of light roasted Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans, resulting in well-balanced round coffee, distinctly sweet aroma, and nutty and biscuity notes.

What is Nespresso Voltesso?

Voltesso is a balanced, round coffee that reveals biscuity notes and pronounces a distinctly sweet aroma. The blend of Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans adds little acidity and bitterness to the drink. Enjoy hot or pour over ice; Nespresso Voltesso will amaze you in every case. For an even smoother result, blend Voltesso with milk for a delicious new take on this espresso.

Nespresso Voltesso Taste

Nespresso Voltesso delivered balanced, round coffee. This Nespresso coffee blend is lightly roasted for a sweet and light taste. The biscuity aroma soothed your nose and light-toned crema indicated Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans. The smooth texture has balanced its sweet character, acidity, and body. 

What Does Nespresso Voltesso Mild Roast Espresso Coffee Taste Test?

I unboxed my Nespresso Voltesso, and its golden color was eye soothing. I brewed it with a VertuoLine machine, and it smelled good. There was light crema on the top of my drink. When I tasted it, the fruity and malty notes hit my tongue. I felt a bit of bitterness on the tip of my tongue, but there was not much acidity and harshness. Overall, the drink was balanced and reasonable.

I prepared hot milk foam and added it to my Voltesso coffee, and I was surprised. It was good. The cereal notes were dominant, with a hint of fruity flavor. The malty notes stayed for a long time and made my drink linger. I did not feel too much acidity and bitterness.

Overall, the drink was smooth and light, and I enjoyed it.

11 Major Features Of Voltesso Nespresso

I focused on 11 striking attributes of Voltesso espresso; these features differentiate it from all other Nespresso coffee pods. These help me to know how Colombian-originated Voltesso is different from Nicaraguan-originated Nespresso capsules. The aroma, texture, and drink quality of Voltesso help me to understand whether I take this light and sweet drink in the morning, evening, summer, or winter. Let’s have a complete insight into these remarkable features. 

Origin — Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans

Nespresso Voltesso is a blend of medium-roasted Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans. Brazilian beans reveal biscuity notes, while Colombian beans balance the light acidity of the drink. This blend (light and balanced) is the golden standard for black coffee. 

Roasting Level — 2 out of 5

Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans are medium-roasted in Voltesso, giving me a sweet and biscuity aroma. The roasting level directly affects coffee’s acidity; dark roast gives candied flavor, while light roast gives fruity and juicy flavor. So, lightly roasted Voltesso delivered me a mild roast espresso coffee with nutty and winey notes. 

Aroma — 4 out of 5

When I brewed lightly roasted Voltesso coffee, its distinctly sweet aroma filled the room. When I got closer to the cup, its aroma hinted at Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans. When I took a sip, the creamy texture sat luxuriously on my tongue, the nutty, baggy, and winey notes hit my palate, and I felt relief for a few moments. In the same way, I also liked the spicy and powerful aroma of Nespresso Diavolitto. 

Acidity — 2 out of 5

The lightly roasted Arabica beans add subtle acidity to the Voltesso drink. As acidity adds dimensions and brightness to the espresso shot, you can either get tang-like mild or lemon-like acrid acidity. When I tasted the Voltesso drink, I found a mild tang-like acidity and its sweet biscuity notes hit my palate. I did not feel any harshness at all.  

Bitterness — 2 out of 5

When I brewed espresso shots with Voltesso and took a sip, the nutty and baggy notes hit my palate. After taking one sip, I forgot all my worries. Each coffee cup has a unique flavor; you can quickly identify whether it has fresh fruit, honey, or caramel-like sweetness. However, Nespresso Voltesso is a balanced, round coffee that reveals biscuity notes and pronounces a distinctly sweet aroma. 

Body — 2 out of 5

The body is the weight and feel of the drink on your tongue. It may be light (like skim milk) or heavy (like whipped cream/whole milk) on your tongue. Voltesso is a Vertuo espresso pod and brewed with only Nespresso Vertuo machines. OriginalLine machines deliver heavy, while VertuoLine machines deliver light and smooth drinks. I found the Voltesso sweet, smooth, light, and creamy on my tongue. When I took sip after sip of it, the winey, nutty, and biscuity notes hit my palate. I slurped the whole cup and didn’t feel it heavy at all. 

Caffeine content — 50-60 mg

Nespresso pods always fulfill your caffeine needs. Its one capsule contains about 80 mg of caffeine and is enough for one standard Vertuo coffee cup. Voltesso is a Vertuo capsule with low coffee and caffeine content. When I measured it in my lab, I found 50-60 mg of caffeine in this sumptuous Nespresso pod. 

Flavor — Round Coffee With Nutty and Biscuity Notes

Voltesso brewed light, sweet, and balanced espresso shots due to medium roasted Brazilian and Colombian Arabica beans. The sweet biscuity aroma soothed my mind when I took my first sip, and the winey, nutty, and baggy flavor hit my palate. The creamy and smooth texture balanced its body and acidity and compelled me to demand sip and cup after cup. Besides this, I liked the winey and candied flavor of Nespresso Toccanto more. 

Intensity — 4 out of 10

Intensity means the level of bitterness and acidity in your drink. More bitterness means more intensity. Voltesso is a blend of light and medium roasted Colombian and Brazilian Arabica beans, so Voltesso coffee has low intensity. The medium roast gives it a sweet, light, and biscuity flavor and balances its subtle acidity. 

Strength — 2 out of 5

The caffeine content and roasting level determine coffee’s strength. The darker the coffee beans are roasted, the greater the strength of your coffee. The Voltesso is a blend of lightly roasted Arabica beans, so it has less strength. It delivered me a light, balanced, creamy, and smooth espresso shot. The medium roasting gives it a nutty and biscuity note and hits my palate with a baggy and winey flavor. 

Finish — Sweet Biscuity Note

If you start your day with a perfect coffee cup, its lively aroma and bold flavors remain in your mind. Nespresso Voltesso brewed such a memorable espresso shot. It adds a distinctly sweet aroma, thanks to its South American Arabicas. The shot was smooth and lingering when I brewed this sumptuous Vertuo pod. When I finished it, I felt bitterness slightly in the end, but later on, it changed into a sweet biscuity note. My mind preserved its nutty aroma and winey and baggy taste. Whenever I am reminded of this harmonious drink, I want to brew and drink a light cup of Nespresso Voltesso.

Does Nespresso Voltesso Deliver A Traditional Espresso Coffee Beverage?

Nespresso Voltesso delivers a 1.35 oz espresso shot and is only brewed with Nespresso VertuoLine machines. Nespresso Vertuo delivers a full range of cup sizes and coffee styles from Espresso to Alto XL with easy-to-use Nespresso capsules. The cup sizes include;

  • Espresso — 1.35 oz
  • Double espresso — 2.7 oz
  • Gran Lungo — 5.7 oz
  • Coffee — 7.8 oz
  • Alto — 14 oz
  • Carafe — 18 oz 

Nespresso Voltesso Vertuo pods are part of the espresso range that will provide you with a 1.35 oz traditional espresso coffee beverage. I also brewed other cup sizes such as double espresso, alto, coffee, etc., but I got only watery drinks. So, it is better to brew only espresso shots with the Voltesso Nespresso capsules.

Voltesso Nespresso Machine Compatibility

There are two types of Nespresso machines; OriginalLline and VertuoLine 

OriginalLine machines deliver full-bodied drinks and use 19 consistent bar pressures. They are compatible with Nespresso Original coffee pods and third-party coffee capsules. These models are best for frequent coffee drinkers.

VertuoLine machines use the Centrifusion technique, scan and run the coffee pods at high speed (7000 RPM), and extract the perfect shots. They are compatible with VertuoLine capsules and Starbucks by Nespresso Vertuo capsules.

Nespresso Voltesso espresso is a Vertuo pod and is only brewed with the Nespresso VertuoLine coffee machine, which may include; Vertuo,—- VertuoPlus,—- VertuoPlus Deluxe,—- Vertuo Next, or Evoluo.

Nespresso Sustainable Program

In 2003, Nespresso collaborated with NGO Rainforest Alliance and launched the AAA Sustainable Quality™ Program. Due to this program, Nespresso invests in insurance and pensions like social programs, ensures profitable coffee farming, and pays for coffee more than the market prices. Today 80% of Nespresso coffee comes from AAA-certified farms, and 40% comes from Rainforest Alliance-certified farms.

Is Nespresso Capsules Recyclable?

Nespresso brand offers Pods Recycling Program, fulfilling the collective commitment and protecting the environment. Nespresso aluminum capsules are fully recyclable and guarantee coffee freshness. If you live in New York City, you can directly dispense your used Aluminum Coffee Pods into the recycling bin to recycle them. If you do not live in New York City, you must order a recycling bag from the Nespresso brand; the company ships the free recycling bag. This bag can accommodate 200 used Coffee Pods. Fill the recycling bag with used Nespresso pods and store it in the freezer to prevent it from smelling. 

Nespresso Voltesso Coffee Pods Price

Nespresso pod coffee machines allow you to brew various coffee beverages at home. In my experiment, I found it affordable compared to regular visits to coffee shops. Regular drinking of coffee from any local coffee shop is expensive and time-consuming. Although you cannot figure out how much money you can save by brewing at home. If a person spends $4 at a local coffee house, but if he buys Keurig or Nespresso pods and machines, how much money he will save is shown in the table below

Capsule or pod Cost, 1 ServingCost, 365 ServingsSavings Over Coffee Shop
Keurig K-Cup$0.35-$0.65$219$1,241
Nespresso Vertuo$0.90-$1.25$402$1,058
Nespresso Original$0.70-$0.85$292$1,168
Coffee Shop$3.50-$4.50$1,460$0

So, if you brew your favorite milk and coffee recipes with the Nespresso machine by using Voltesso at home, you can save up to 80% of your money. Not only with Nespresso Voltesso, but you can save the same amount with any of the OriginalLine or Nespresso VertuoLine pods.
