TL;DR: Amazon’s Deal of the Day includes three Nespresso machine bundles that are on sale for just $99.99 each. They’re normally $232 apiece, so you’ll save a whopping 57%.
I’ll be the first to admit that Starbucks’ pumpkin cream cold brew is a craveable cup of velvety, autumny goodness that’s just *begging* to be sipped in an apple orchard between a pair of flannel mittens. But at about $5 a pop (depending on the size), your festive caffeine fix can quickly eat away at your finances.
That’s not to say you should forgo your favorite fancy fall drinks entirely, because sometimes you just need some sweet, syrupy, pumpkin-spicey relief from this hellscape of a world. But with your own espresso machine, you can make those same drinks in the comfort of your own kitchen while avoiding chain coffee shops’ exorbitant prices.
If you want to score a cheap espresso machine ahead of the hectic-ness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you should head on over to Amazon as soon as humanly possible: Among other discounts on Nespresso coffee and espresso makers, its current Deal of the Day features a trio of Nespresso bundles that are on sale for 57% off. (FYI: We rarely see discounts that high on Nespresso anything.)
Each bundle includes a Nespresso machine worth $199, plus a 30-count assortment of Nespresso’s bestselling Vertuoline dark- and medium-roast coffee capsules (in case you ever feel like brewing a plain ol’ cup of java). It’s a $232 value altogether, but you’ll pay just $99.99 per bundle if you place your order through Amazon before midnight tonight.
Choose from the following three machines:
Founded in 1932, Breville is an Australian appliance company that manufacturers Nespresso machines, including the popular Vertuo model. This automatic coffee and espresso maker can brew five different sizes of single-serve drinks at the touch of a button (espresso, double espresso, gran lungo, coffee, and alto); heats up in 15 seconds; and uses Nespresso’s Centrifusion technology to make sure each blend is optimally brewed.
Based in Italy, De’Longhi is another Nespresso manufacturer that makes the Vertou machine. It looks a little different than Breville’s version — peep the more angular, domeless design and metallic finish — but works exactly the same. (Note: You can get this machine for about $6 cheaper at Walmart, but it doesn’t come with a 30-pack of coffee capsules.)
Also made by De’Longhi, the Vertuo Evoluo is a slightly heftier next-generation machine with a bigger water tank and more space for used capsules.
