The Caffeinated Man: Nespresso U Machine

We’re fueled by caffeine — in addition to countless other libations — but our day always gets a kickstart with coffee.

From antiquated drip machines, presses, and pods, we’ve crafted our morning cup with all manner of devices. Now there’s a new brewmaster in our lives that’s quickly earning its keep. Introducing U — the ultimate coffee experience from the innovators at Nespresso.

Pop in a colourful capsule of premium coffee in a strength to suit your desired intensity level (Nespresso blends are rated on a scale of 1 to 10), depending on how sluggish you feel that day. U consistently delivers the perfect cup of coffee time after time. No more acrid tar or watery weaksauce when you invariably mess up your measurements or go a few days without cleaning your pot/press/grinder/etc./etc.

It’s as smart as it is simple and stylish. U memorizes your favourite cup length with no pesky pre-programming required. Its compact footprint and first-of-its-kind adjustable water tank that slides from side-to-side also frees up our rapidly vanishing urban counter space.

This machine is built for guys like us who love coffee, convenience and clever design.

So far, U and I are getting along great.

Priced at $199, U is now available in cream, black, grey and orange. Buy it online, at Nespresso boutiques and selected retailers from coast to coast.
