If you’ve longed for the luxury of making your own cappuccinos at home — or lattes or macchiatos or even just straight-up espresso shots — without the expense or the fuss of a pressurized espresso machine, here’s an on-sale, one-touch option from De’Longhi. Yes, it uses Nespresso pods, but that means all you have to do to make an excellent espresso drink at home is drop in the (fully recyclable, aluminum) pod and press a single button — a task that’s easy enough to accomplish even when you’re half asleep. And unlike other, more basic Nespresso machines, you don’t need a separate milk frother to make a complete drink, because this machine does it all in one. If you need any more convincing, our senior vice president of ecommerce Camilla Cho has owned and loved an older model of this machine for the last four years and tells us, “I really don’t think you can get a good quality cappuccino as easily and quickly as through this Nespresso.” (Though she does recommend descaling it regularly for best results.) And right now, this foolproof espresso machine is over half off at Best Buy, the cheapest we’ve ever seen.
