TL;DR: The Nespresso Vertuo, an easy-to-use coffee and espresso machine, is on sale for just $98.99 on Amazon — its lowest price ever on the site. (It’s normally $199.95, so you’ll save about $100.)


As Pumpkin Spice Latte disciples make their annual pilgrimages to sip that spicy-sweet nectar of the coffee gods, your local Starbucks is probably even more of a madhouse than usual this time of year. (And that’s really saying something.)

Pro tip: Skip the lines and avoid the thirsty masses by simply making coffee at home instead. Breville’s Nespresso Vertuo unit makes it easy to whip up barista-grade java *and* espresso in the comfort of your own kitchen, and right now it’s on sale on Amazon for just under $100 — its lowest price ever on the site. 

The Nespresso Vertuo nabbed a spot at the very top of our list of the best single-serve coffee makers on the market because it’s both versatile and ridiculously easy to use. It relies on a specialized barcode system (there’s one on every Nespresso capsule) to adjust its own brewing specifications based on the blend and style of drink you’re making. So, to brew something, simply pop in a coffee or espresso capsule, choose your cup size — espresso, double espresso, gran lungo, coffee, or alto — and hit the “start” button ; the machine will take things from there. (It heats up in about 15 seconds, so you won’t have to wait too long for your drink to be ready.)

The machine only works with Nespresso Vertuo cups because of the whole bar code thing, so Amazon throws in a 12-piece “welcome kit” featuring a variety of single-serve capsules with every Vertuo purchase to get you started. Once you’re out, you can restock your capsule supply on Amazon for about $1 a pop.

Amazon customers rave about the Nespresso Vertuo machine in their reviews. Here’s what Kristi Piccone had to say:

“My husband and I tried nespresso at a coworkers house and we bought one shortly after. I thought coffee from Starbucks was the best but it taste mediocre now that I have a nespresso machine:) I seriously am spoiled now and a bit of a snob with other brands. You don’t have to break your piggy bank either because a pod is $1 compared each to Starbucks where you spend upwards $4 on up. I love that it [froths] my coffee while making it. It’s such a treat! I bought one for my sister and brother in law for their recent nuptials👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻”

Head over to Amazon to order your machine for just $99.98 — 50% off its suggested retail price of $199.95.
