Amazon offers the Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe Coffee and Espresso Maker by De’Longhi in Black for $99.50 shipped. Matched at Best Buy during its Black Friday in July Sale. Regularly as much as $150, which is what Williams-Sonoma charges, this is the best deal we can currently find. However, we did see a limited-time Prime Day special that paired this machine with 30 coffee pods for the same price. This single-serve coffee maker can brew five cup sizes, has a movable 60-ounce water tank, and will be ready to make your favorite drink in as little as 15 seconds. It also includes 12 Nespresso Vertuo capsules to get you started. Rated 4.2/5 stars and an Amazon best-selling espresso machine & coffee maker combo.
Save money by going with Hamilton Beach’s The Scoop Single Serve Coffee Maker at $40. You’ll lose the smarts and other amenities of the Nespresso above. However, you’ll also be doing the environment a favor as this doesn’t rely on coffee pods to get the job done. (It uses coffee grounds instead.)
