What is the machines energy rating? How much energy does it consume?
When in use the machines energy consumption is lower than 1.455 W/h. The exact numbers are depending of what kind of mode you use and in which stage the machine is operating. As the machine does use a small amount of power in stand-by mode, we recommend, for extended periods of non-use, switching the machine off at the power plug.
Does Verismo® System have a sustainable, organic or free trade range of coffees?

I live in the United Kingdom. What is Starbucks doing to participate in the WEEE Directive?
Starbucks makes every attempt to comply with all applicable laws and regulations. In the United Kingdom, Starbucks is enrolled in the Wastepack WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) compliance scheme. This enables our customers to appropriately dispose of and recycle their electronic brewing equipment. If you purchased a Verismo® machine or any other electrical brewing item from Starbucks to replace another machine you may own, you may dispose of your old machine free of charge at most local authority civic amenity sites or at certain other registered sites. For information on your nearest recycle site, please visit the Wastepack Recycle Site Locator or contact your local authority. We do not offer in-store take back.
