Currently, you can buy 9 pods – Veranda Blend, House Blend, Caffè Verona, Espresso Roast, Decaf Espresso Roast, Guatemala Antigua Espresso, Caffè Latte, Decaf Caffè and Natural Dairy Milk.
Starbucks Verismo reaches brewing temperature in remarkable 15 seconds, then brews espresso in 30 seconds and coffee in under a minute. Both models come with height-adjustable drip tray to accommodate cups, mugs, etc. Used pods are automatically dropped into integrated container, that can hold 10 in the 580 and 30 in the 585 model.
