If you like the idea of having the option of making espresso and coffee with the touch of a button without needing two devices, now is a great time to save on two of Nespresso’s most versatile machines at Sur La Table. For those unfamiliar with Nespresso’s VertuoLine of espresso machines, think of it as getting two machines in one.
The VertuoLine brews everything from single-serve espresso shots all the way up to a 14-ounce cup of coffee. With dozens of Nespresso models to choose from, it can be a bit dizzying to know which one to get, so here are our two favorite picks from their coffee sale, running through January 21.
Nespresso Evoluo Deluxe by De’Longhi with Aeroccino3 Frother, $175, normally $249
The best value for your money is this bundle featuring the Nespresso Evoluo Deluxe by De’Longhi and the Aeroccino3 frother. Why is this such a great deal? For starters, the frother retails for $99 alone, so you’re essentially getting a fully loaded espresso and coffee machine for $75. Able to brew five different volumes, the Evoluo Deluxe automatically reads which size capsule you insert and brews it to that style. Choose between a 1.35-ounce espresso, 2.7-ounce double espresso, 5-ounce Gran Lungo, 8-ounce coffee, or 14-ounce Alto coffee.
The 60-ounce water tank is one of the largest you’ll find on a single-serve machine, so if you’re a fan of filling one or two travel mugs every morning, you won’t have to worry about the reservoir running out on you. And don’t forget that the frother is good for more than just espresso drinks — you can also use it to froth milk for hot chocolate or matcha lattes.
Nespresso VertuoPlus by De’Longhi, $154, normally $220
Maybe you don’t need or want a frother, or are a bit more limited on space. The VertuoPlus offers a smaller footprint, but with the same functionality of the Evoluo Deluxe. It brews five different volumes of espresso and coffee, and uses Nespresso’s brewing technology, which touts that it can make “crema-enhanced drip coffee or rich espresso.” The VertuoPlus also features a large 60-ounce water tank, but it’s movable and can be configured to fit into a long, narrow spot on your countertop or snugly in a corner.
When you consider how affordable Nespresso’s capsules are (the most expensive coffee capsule we could find was $1.50 and espresso was $.85), this machine will pay for itself in about three months if you currently spend $15 a week on coffee. And the truth is, many of us spend a lot more than that!
