Not to diss coffee shops—we love them like the rest of the universe. But spending dough every morning just isn’t necessary when you have an amazing coffee machine at home. (Plus you can sip in your PJs.) If you haven’t invested in a great single-serve coffee/espresso machine yet, now’s your chance: at $99 (down from $179), the VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine is a winner.
What’s different about this machine is its simplicity—there are no elaborate settings or gauges. Just pop the lid open, toss in a capsule, press down the lid and push a button to make anything from an espresso or double espresso to a 14-ounce cup of coffee with crema on top. The machine takes Vertuo capsules, and comes with a welcome gift featuring 12 flavors so you can decide which one you like the best.
It has cool features, too, like a 60-ounce water tank that can swivel from behind the machine to the side, depending on the configuration of your countertop. It also boasts automatic shutoff after nine minutes of inactivity, and comes in punchy red and chic graphite metal.
This gadget has brewed up lots of fans, including this very enthusiastic one:
“When I tell you this is the fanciest coffee machine I've ever seen, I mean it. Every single detail that is worked into this coffee maker is extravagant,” says a satisfied Amazon reviewer. “To insert a coffee pod, all you have to do is hit a little button upwards and the lid opens by itself, then closes when you press it down. There is no need to throw away the pods, as they MAGICALLY disappear when you open the lid next time you make a cup of coffee. The machine itself is quiet, and makes delicious frothy coffee in all varieties. This machine and the Nespresso coffee line makes the smoothest coffee I've ever tasted. Half of the pods do not even need sugar or milk added to taste good (and I love sweet/milky coffee)!”
