Very simple, you’ll notice there’s a red dot at the bottom where the capsules get punctured. The box of the capsules will have the same red dot and will be labelled Decaffeinato.

What About Nespresso Vertuo’s Decaf Pods?

Since Vertuo’s pods look different than OriginalLine’s, their Decaf mark is different, too. As you’ll notice from the picture, this Melozio pod has a red ring around the pod, which indicates it is Decaf. Vertuo’s decaf pods are also called Decaffeinato.

How Much Caffeine Do Nespresso’s Decaf Capsules Have?

While decaf coffee is supposed to have no caffeine at all, truth is still has some traces of it. The average Nespresso capsules has about 60mg to 70mg of caffeine in it, while the Decaf has 1mg or less. This very tiny amount has very little to no effect on the body. So you can enjoy your decaf without any worries of caffeine kicking in.
