Coffee pods have long been a boon to people who crave both caffeine and convenience. And Nespresso has been the high standard for single-serve coffee and espresso that feels both simple and luxurious. Of course, that high standard usually comes with a high price tag to match.
Today, however, you can get the Nespresso Vertou Coffee and Espresso Maker with a milk frother for 40 percent off on Amazon.
A quick note: The deal is so good partially because you're buying a certified refurbished model. But don't let that deter you. It's sold through Amazon, so you know it's tested and certified to work and look like new. It even comes with a minimum 90-day supplier warranty. The bundle usually costs $200 (the frother alone is valued at $80 if you're buying it new), which is already a steal, and today it's just $120.
The Vertuo model allows you to brew both espresso and coffee. The milk frother also allows you to make a number of drinks like lattes and cappuccinos. While we don't typically think of the summer as the time to invest in an espresso machine, espresso over ice is a quick way to make a cold beverage in the mornings. Just add cold milk from the frother, or try cold tap water to make an Americano.
If you don't need a milk frother and just want to drink your coffee drink of choice black, you can get a new Vertuo for $100, marked down from $200. The pods for the machine can also be purchased on Amazon, if you need.
Nespresso pods are recyclable, and can be dropped off at participating kitchen stores, including Williams Sonoma and Sur la Table.
