Starbucks Verismo 580 review


Starbucks has a devoted following that's even more robust than its beans, and many of these loyalists will likely be interested in checking out the Verismo 580. With the pull of a lever and the touch of a button, the java giant's initial entry into the...

The Starbucks Verismo 580 is easily one of the best-looking single-serve coffee brewers available. The coffee and espresso it brews both taste almost exactly like what you’d get at your neighborhood Starbucks, for a lot less money.

With the Verismo, your options are hugely limited – it’s Starbucks, or it’s nothing. The powdered-milk lattes are also terrible.

If you love Starbucks so much that you don’t care to drink anything else, then look no further – the Verismo is the coffee-maker for you. Coffee drinkers who like fresh ground beans and experimenting with different brands will want to look for a more...

Best of the Combination Espresso and coffee brewers so far


It does what it does either well or excellently. Hot coffee or espresso, made excellently when the directions are followed. Latte and cappuccino made as well as any pod system containing powdered milk.. The best competing machines seem to be from CBTL...

Cleaning cycle (preheats the system for a very hot cup of espresso or coffee, also), makes both espresso and coffee,

No recyclable or reusable pod system (not really, despite some messy attempts)

Received as a gift, cups are expensive


My brother got this for me for Christmas, and I wouldn't say I was in the market for this coffee maker. I'm not really a fan of the waste that is created by the single cup brewers. The Verismo cups are more expensive than Keurig, but the coffee does...

Not durable


I purchased this coffee maker in the year 2012 and used it for about 8 months only. The product worked very well in the first six months. Specially engineered pods keep the Starbucks® brewed coffee, espresso or milk freshly packed until the moment you...

Slow Leak


I love Starbucks and my family and friends know of my love so I was excited to receive this a gift. Unfortunately, that excitement only lasted until I opened the box and tried it out. First, I love that this is a machine directly from Starbucks so you...

Verismo makes a decent cup of coffee


I received this coffee maker as a gift. As a die- hard Starbucks fan I was thrilled. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed with the quality of lattes. The powdered milk is awful. If you use it just to brew coffee or espresso the machine is good and...

Amazing espresso and incredibly easy to use!


After trying several different "easy" coffee makers, I tried this one and absolutely loved it! It's a cheaper way to bring Starbucks into your home without compromising the taste. Machine is easy to use and has very little clean up. I recommend this...

Perfect for Starbucks lovers who don't want to go outside!


I am absolutely in love with this product - exactly what I was looking for !! I'm sure you know there are a ton of coffee products - especially since the Keurig's patent expired so now anyone can just make whatever they want. I for one am glad because...
