Over the last month, I have been very happy with my Starbucks Verismo 600 Brewer. It makes perfectly acceptable espresso. I recently committed to drinking espresso from this machine by purchasing 96 espresso roast pods. That is a pretty sizeable commitment. My espresso pod trials so far have included 3 different types of coffee. Both the Ethiopia Yirgacheff and the Guatemala Antigua espresso pods were decent, but I still prefer the traditional espresso roast pods.
My Verismo espresso pod ratings:
- Starbucks Espresso Roast pods
- Guatemala Antigua espresso pods
- Ethiopia Yirgacheff espresso pods
