Valentine’s Day is coming up fast and if you just realized that, there are florists who can guarantee same-day delivery. But if your special someone happens to be more of a coffee lover, a Nespresso machine would be the ultimate surprise, especially if they’re someone who still falls in line to get a sip of barista-grade coffee. Premium coffee often comes at a premium price but there will be no bitter aftertaste with Amazon’s sale on two of De’Longhi’s Nespresso Original espresso machines. You can snag either the Expert or the Lattissima One along with savings of up to $179. And you can act at the last minute and still not be late as Amazon can ship one to you by tomorrow if you order today. To sweeten the deal, even more, you can slash $50 more on top of the sale prices when approved for an Amazon Rewards Visa card.
The DeLonghi Expert is a Nespresso espresso machine that instantly steps up your coffee game as it allows you to produce cafe-quality brews in the comfort of your home. It extracts delicate flavors and rich aromas with a 19-bar high-performance pressure pump packed in a cutting-edge design that is as stylish as it is intuitive. It is relatively easy to find a spot for it on your counter with its flat-to-the-wall shape. The device also features automated LED alerts to let you know when descaling is needed, when the used capsule container is full/out, and when the 38-ounce water tank is nearing empty.
This high-tech espresso machine incorporates Bluetooth technology that enables you to connect either your smartphone or iPad and, in turn, gives you access to the Nespresso mobile app. With this feature alone, you’ll be willing to ditch the line at your local coffee shop as it lets you create your own personalized coffee blend, manage coffee recipes, schedule brew times remotely, order Nespresso capsules, and get simplified machine assistance through the Nespresso club.
You can bank on the Nespresso Expert to deliver four coffee sizes, for ristretto (0.85 ounces), espresso (1.35 ounces), lungo (3.7 ounces), and Americano (0.84 ounces coffee: 4.2 ounces hot water). With a fast heat-up system of just 30 seconds, you can have the perfect in-cup result within minutes and you can choose among three temperature settings for medium, hot, or extra-hot. There is even a separate spout for just hot water (6.78 ounces) and an adjustable magnetic drip tray to accommodate different sized cups and recipes. It is also smart enough to automatically shut off after nine minutes of inactivity.
You’ll have instant gratification as the De’Longhi Expert, as all Nespresso machines come with a welcome set of a range of Nespresso capsules along with their unique profiles. And you can enjoy as many delectable homebrews as you want, and all for just $239 instead of the usual $329 on Amazon.
Those who have a taste for creamier concoctions may just find their match made in heaven with De’Longhi’s Latissima One. Another Nespresso Original Espresso machine that sates your craving for a robust cup of java with a 19-bar high-performance pressure pump. It is also wired with a fast heat-up system that reaches the optimal brewing temperature in as little as 25 seconds for espresso and 40 seconds for milk beverages.
The Lattisima One sure makes it possible for you to enjoy single-serve coffee in more ways than one. For one, you won’t have to pay an average of $5 per cup, and two, one press of a button is all it takes to unleash your inner barista. You’ll just have to choose between two programmable cup sizes for espresso (1.35 ounces), lungo (2.75 ounces), and activate the built-in milk frother when you’re in the mood for a latte or cappuccino.
Once you’ve gotten your coffee fix, cleaning is painless, with a separate container receiving up to nine spent capsules. Most of its components including the milk tank and sliding drip tray are also detachable and dishwasher safe. You don’t even need to remember to switch off the Latissima One as it has an energy-saving function that automatically turns it off after nine minutes of inactivity.
De’Longhi’s Lattissima One flaunts a sleek and innovative design that won a Red Dot Award in 2018. It is one of the most affordable and compact machines within its class and is stunningly made with qualitative finishing materials such as a chromed lever, a subtle gloss, and matte line patterns. And its design ensures that limited counter space will not be much of an issue. Its simple operation involves three soft-touch buttons atop the machine and outlined measurements on the milk tank for reference. You’ll also get a complementary set of Grand Cru blends to start you off.
Normally listing for $379, you can indulge in delectable homebrews with DeLonghi’s Latissima One available for only $298 on Amazon.
