After all, as you plan your wedding day, create your registry list and look forward to your future, one thing lies for certain, you want to live your “happily ever after” in your “new nest” with ease and elegance.
Enter the Verismo 580 single-cup brewing system, the 2013 wedding registry must-have for its tech-glam good-looks, perfect brew at the touch of a button, at-home ease and in-store style savory drinks. Examiner had the opportunity to borrow a Verismo 580 for review and enjoy delicious Starbucks beverages with amazing convenience, transforming us into a bold at-home barista. Starbucks’ Verismo 580 machine is a fabulous and top-performing home brewer for the following reasons:
- Set-up is a cinch- the machine is pretty straight-forward and very user-friendly, no need to be a techie to perform barista-style beverages at-home. Simply fill the water tank (conveniently located at the back), turn it on and select from the three easy-to-read buttons to make your brew: espresso (which also duals as a rinse button), brewed (for standard coffees), and milk. There’s very little effort needed to get your caffeine-fix on at home. Please note however that the machine does require “rinsing” five times before first-time use (which takes less than a minute using the integrated rinse function) and its recommended to “rinse” between brewing different types of drinks to ensure you get a concentrated and fully flavorful cup of java each time
- Compact, convenient and chic- the Verismo 580 brewer features a sleek, slim and stylish design that will easily transform any kitchen into a sophisticated space and bring gourmet-glam to your new nest. What’s more, the design is very compact which is perfect for smaller kitchen spaces and it makes for a fabulous statement piece in bigger kitchens. It also features stylish good looks, a gorgeous multi-tone finish, chrome details and simple to read buttons
- Perfectly preserved coffee pods and delicious drinks- not only do you get familiar and delicious brand name Starbucks blends, but they come in convenient compact pods that contain an extra layer of protection thanks to a built-in filter that keeps coffee fresh, simply peel the foil cover off the pod before using. While nothing beats heading out to your nearest Starbucks’ for a premium barista-made drink, the Verismo 580 offers a delicious beverage that’s pretty close to the at-store brews and is pleasingly consistent in flavor and strength. Our overall favorite was the Espresso pod which was not only rich in flavor and bold in strength, making for exceptional shots but also amazingly mouthwatering lattes when used with the milk pod
- Mmm…milk- what’s unique about the Verismo 580 is it offers powdered milk pods to use for lattes which are not only delicious but quick and easy to create a nice and frothy latte blended beverage. Expert tip: create a delicious in-store style Caffè Latte that will delight your senses. Simply insert a milk pod then follow with an espresso pod and watch in wonder as the Verismo 580 creates an expertly crafted three-layer masterpiece consisting of hot milk, exquisite coffee, and fine milk froth that’s supremely savory
The Verismo 580 retails for $199 and features high-pressure brewing with a convenient variable temperature system. This sleek machine is available in four stunning colors: Silver, Black, Burgundy and Champagne — for pretty personalization to your kitchen and home. Overall, Starbucks’ Verismo 580 machine is a wedding registry must-have and everyday home essential that will make life stylish and savory.
