Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso capsule system uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, long-lasting crema. And because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact making for quick and easy clean up. Choose from seven different capsule varieties.
