Why Do Nespresso Vertuo Pods Have Unique Barcodes?
Every Nespresso blend needs a different approach to get it just right, so the Vertuo pods have unique barcodes in order to tell the machine how to handle the specific blend.
The barcode controls many different aspects of how the machine prepares the coffee, including how much water to add, how long to infuse it, and what water temperature to use.
Even factors like flow rate and speed of extraction are taken into account. The barcodes are almost impossible for the machine to miss, so the blends should always turn out right.
