Did you know that you can use your Nespresso machine for more than just coffee? Nespresso doesn’t have their own hot chocolate pod product, but many other third-party brands have jumped in to fill the gap. The most popular Nespresso-compatible hot chocolate pods are Podista and CaffeLuxe, but there are dozens of others getting in on the game as well.
Hot Chocolate and Virtuo
While there are a lot of options for hot chocolate pods for your Nespresso coffee maker, there is one major problem: most of the popular ones are only compatible with older Nespresso machines and not the VirtuoLine.
However, that doesn’t mean you still can’t enjoy a delicious hot cup of cocoa with your Virtuo, the old-fashioned way.
