Nespresso Pop-Up Dome: VertuoLine Coffee and Espresso Machine

If you have noticed the gold dome that has popped up in Dewey Square right across from South Station with a line out the door every morning I recommend you go in and check it out before it is gone!

It is a pop-up from Nespresso to debut their VertuoLine coffee and espresso machine. Don’t be intimidated by the line, it moves quickly.


Walking into the dome I was directed to a coffee station where a Nespresso employee greeted me and asked if I would like coffee or espresso. I chose coffee and went with the hazelnut flavor.


As the coffee was being brewed I learned all about the VertuoLine machine which can brew both coffee and espresso at the touch of a button. No setting changes needed.

Water in the machine heats for 15-20 seconds. Using centrifuge technology each coffee or espresso capsule is spun at 7,000 rotations per minute helping to blend the coffee with the hot water. Each cup is topped off the perfect amount of naturally created foam (crema).

The individual capsules have a bar code on the outside so the machine knows whether you are brewing a coffee (8oz cup) or espresso (1.4oz cup).


I am not a regular coffee drinker but will grab a cup here and there from Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts or Boston Common Coffee. I never drink Keurig coffee because I think it is too watery.

However, after trying a cup from the VertuoLine I was completely sold on the machine and the coffee it brews. I need a cup of this in my life every day. I didn’t even need to add much milk thanks to the crema.

If you stop into the pop-up dome they serve your coffee in a great plastic to-go cup. I enjoyed my at my desk and made sure to tell all of my coworkers about it. Some of them even headed back to the dome in the afternoon for a second cup.

Yes, it’s THAT good.


If you can’t make it do the pop-up dome stop into any Nespresso location near you for a complimentary tasting.

I just added the VertuoLine machine to my Amazon Store so you can easily order the machine right from my page and bring the coffee shop right into your own home!

Have you gotten a chance to try coffee or espresso from the VertuoLine yet?

If not, you can find a Nespresso store right on Newbury Street:
