Everyone needs a caffeine fix, and instant coffee doesn’t always do it. It’s why there’s a Starbucks on every street corner, and why your local cafe can charge $8 for an oat latte and you’ll give in every time. You swear you’ll make something at home, but it doesn’t feel the same.
Nespresso users are largely the exception, though, as anyone who’s friends with one knows. They’re evangelists for a reason: The coffee is really that good. (It needs to be, to justify the price tag.) If you’ve been waiting to take the plunge on a new one, there are a number of them on sale for around 30% of on Amazon today, including the Nespresso Vertuo, which is our pick. It’s exactly 30% off today for Cyber Monday, going for $189.
Yes, $200 is a big ask, but the Vertuo offers a seamless and personalized coffee experience at the touch of a button. It offers five different cup sizes and boasts carefully designed capsules to prevent one size from being too concentrated or watered-down. The capsules come in dual-size single-serve containers, allowing users to switch between brewing coffee and espresso. The machine’s versatility extends to its adjustable tray, which accommodates for its various cup sizes. Plus, its 40-ounce water reservoir and automatic ejection of used capsules makes for minimal daily clean up.
Further helping you avoid the coffee shop: The Vertuo comes bundled with the Aeroccino3, which delivers hot or cold milk froth at the touch of a button. Reviewers praise the noiseless foaming, as well as the quick startup; it’s got a heat-up time of just 15-20 seconds, with an energy-saving automatic shutoff after nine minutes of inactivity.
