Having a cup of barista-grade coffee doesn’t necessarily mean you have to go out of your way to fall in line at your local cafe. Delectable homebrews can come your way when you upgrade your clunky coffee maker to a Nespresso machine. Although it’s not exactly affordable as models would typically set you back by a couple of hundred dollars, it’s a far better alternative in the long run compared to the average $5 you spend per cup at coffee shops. And this time, you can gear up and save even more money. Amazon is slashing up to $97 off two Nespresso machine bundles from De’Longhi, the Citiz, and Vertuo Evoluo.
— $202 ($97 off)
The compact dimensions of DeLonghi’s Nespresso CitiZ make for an impressive match between innovative technology and timeless design that has earned the Red Dot Award (International Design Competition for product design.) Rest assured, limited counter space won’t be an issue and though it may be quite a lightweight at just nine pounds, it manages to pack a 19-bar high-pressure pump when typical espresso machines only hit the range of 7 to 9 bars. You can trust that you’ll have the means to extract all those premium coffee flavors and get a whiff of those exciting aromas.
Getting your coffee fix would hardly test your patience as the CitiZ utilizes a fast heat-up system to reach the optimal brewing temperature in just 25 seconds. You’ll simply have to choose between programmable cup sizes for espresso (1.35 ounces) or lungo (2.75 ounces), adjust the drip tray’s height, and you’ll have your fill within minutes of pressing the button. In the case that you’re craving for a velvety cappuccino or latte, the Aeroccino3 milk frother included in this bundle serves you the perfect foam finish.
De’Longhi’s Nespresso CitiZ also comes with a bunch of thoughtful features. It has an energy-saving mode that would automatically shut the machine off after nine minutes of inactivity so you wouldn’t have to worry about forgetting to do so. Its 24-ounce water reservoir would have gotten you through more than a few cups before you’d need to refill and since it’s detachable as most of its components are, cleaning up should be a breeze. And with a used capsule container, you can dispose of 9-11 spent capsules in bulk rather than one by one. Amazon sweetens this deal with a $97 price cut that makes the CitiZ available for $202 instead of $299. An additional $50 discount can also be applied when you’re approved for an Amazon Rewards Visa card.
— $168 ($81 off)
De’Longhi’s Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo lets you have single-serve in more ways than one. Whether you’re after a shot of espresso, a cup of coffee, or creamier concoctions, this coffee and espresso machine, plus the Aeroccino3 milk frother makes it all possible. Like the CitiZ, you’re in for a one-touch operation when choosing among cup sizes for espresso (1.35 ounces), and coffee (7.7 ounces).
The Vertuo Evoluo is not only versatile but also a smart piece of tech. It is equipped with Nespresso’s patented centrifusion technology that spins the capsule up to 7,000 rotations per minute while it blends ground coffee with water. With distinctive barcodes on each capsule, the brewing parameters are adjusted for you. It has a faster heat-up time of only 15-20 seconds and can also be set to switch itself off after nine minutes.
The Vertuo Evoluo’s 54-ounce water tank, drip tray, and the container are removable to make it easier to work with and clean. Consistent with all Nespresso machines, it flaunts a sleek design and comes with a complimentary set of 12 Nespresso capsules to get you started. Usually priced at $249, you can jazz up your countertop and get a taste of premium coffee for just $168 on Amazon.
