I cannot live without my daily coffee. Recently, I was gifted a verismo system from Starbucks for Christmas. It has totally upped my coffee game. With the verismo, I am able to make lattes that taste almost the same as what I get at Starbucks, and can have a shot of espresso any time of the day.
During law school, I lived off my Keurig. It was perfect for a cup of coffee any time of the day (or night). It was also the perfect coffee system for a single person. If you are deciding between a Keurig or verismo for yourself, hopefully, this post can help. In the end, I would suggest choosing the verismo because you get more bang for your buck, and it comes with most of the same perks as the Keurig. Everyone is different though, and Keurig might be the right fit for you!
great for a single cup of coffee
makes coffee quickly
established coffee system, which means there are lots of K-Cup options
Here is a link if you’d like to purchase one!
- Unlike the kuerig, this machine is specific for espresso. The espresso is delicious and each cup tastes like its from starbucks.
Can make Lattes if you buy the milk frother
- I received the milk frother and bought some of the sugar free vanilla flavoring from Starbucks. So, I can make skinny vanilla lattes at home which taste the exact same as they do from Starbucks.
Can make Coffee
- this machine has an option for turning an espresso pod into coffee as well.
- the machine is small and takes up little room on the counter
quick to start up
Winner = Verismo
For me, the verismo wins. I love how you can make espresso and lattes, or just a plain cup of coffee if that’s what you want. With only one different negative than the Keurig– not a ton of options for coffee flavors, it is a great investment! I wish I had one in law school. Would have saved me a lot of money on those Starbucks runs!
