When it comes to high-quality coffee makers, there often tends to be a steep price tag attached. Today, however, for Presidents Day 2021, we’re bringing you one heck of a deal on our favorite single-serve pod coffee maker—the Nespresso VertuoPlus Deluxe by De’Longhi.

Regularly priced at $199 on Amazon, this expert espresso machine is on sale in a bundle deal for $149.98 today at QVC. That’s a markdown of nearly $80 from the $229 it usually goes for here, since you’ll also get one of our favorite milk frothers, the Nespresso Aeroccino3 (which is selling for $99.99 on its own elsewhere), a 12 coffee capsule variety pack and 30 extra capsules to boot.
The extremely similar Nespresso VertuoPlus by Breville ($179.99) came out at the top of the coffee maker heap in our testing. While this De’Longhi sale model is slightly different in appearance (the Breville features a more rounded top) and manufactured by a different brand, these two machines are effectively the same, according to our cooking team. They use the same Nespresso technology, feature the same elements and even produce the same shot of espresso.
This unit we tried was a clear winner thanks to its dense, rich coffee and espresso-making abilities and consistent performance. The VertuoPlus had us plenty wowed by its construction, too. With a comparably sleek design, this sale model boasts a 60-ounce water tank that swivels out easily, plus, it automatically ejects coffee pods into a hidden container to avoid any would-be burns. It even has the ability to brew five different coffee sizes (1.35 ounces, 2.7 ounces, 5 ounces, 7.7 ounces and 14 ounces).
The motorized head opens with a light lift, allowing for ample room for pod insertion, and functions more gracefully than your typical Keurig machine. In fact, in a test between the two, we determined that the VertuoPlus “simply [brewed] much better coffee than most Keurigs.”
In addition to earning our official seal of approval, this product has a near-perfect rating from more than 1,700 Amazon shoppers, who pledge for its incredible coffee-making abilities.
There’s no telling how long this deal will last, however, so get it while you can!
