Verismo 585 Espresso Brewer
Starbucks recently introduced the Verismo 580 (Full Review of the Starbucks Verismo 580 Brewer ), and started a national ad campaign. Starbucks has also delivered the Verismo V-585; an upgrade that offers more features and of course more price. The larger footprint allows for a larger reservoir and a few more features.
The Verismo 585 adds a "Professional-level" look and feel, with added look and feel you see in a lot of super automatics. The LED screen gives you a readout on what drink you are making; including a short espresso size, a larger ~7 ounce size and a special milk brew button. This button allows you to use a milk pod to create that milk portion of a latte brewing at a lower temperature.
More features after the jump.....
The larger footprint of the Verismo 585 is a hefty 10" x 19 1/2" x 15 1/4" high, but that gives you ridiculous reservoir at 3.5 liters, or 118 fluid ounces; almost a whole gallon of water. I don't think I've seen a reservoir that large. The Verismo 585 also comes with a water filter to keep things clean and great tasting. The large reservoir needs a large spend pod bin too on the other end of things. It will hold up to 30-pods. I might not let it go that long with the spent milk pods in there; thinking that it might get a little nasty.
Brewing temperature takes only 15 seconds from pressing the power button to brew time; that's pretty fast. I don't like the fact that it needs a rinse cycle before it starts; essentially getting the cooler water washed through; it's a bit of a waste. The brew pressure not eh machine is 19-bars; pretty hit and well designed to get a good quality pressure brew.
The Verismo 585 is priced at $399, and is available exclusively through Williams-Sonoma until 11/23. It comes in black and silver (shown above).
