A commenter suggested this will be a rebadged K-fee machine (see here for more info.). Sure looks like it!

Unless they are really changing and beefing up the internals of the K-Fee to transform it into a Verismo, to me it sounds like a piece of junk... We'll see this fall I guess. I do wonder what makes the milk pods so special though. The repeatedly stated in the conference call that the milk "tastes like real milk" and was a breakthrough. There are no milk pods currently for the K-Fee machine although you can buy a cheap quality milk frother to use with it. I found it funny that, during the conference call, the CEO Howard Schultz kept calling the new machine a Verisimo instead of Verismo. He couldn't get the name right!
