Surely you can’t go an entire winter season without your daily delicious and steamy coffee-based beverage. But really, who can afford those daily trips to Starbucks? Those $6 skinny vanilla lattes really start to add up, and before you know it, every bank transaction simply reads, “Caffeine.”
But what other options do you have? I mean, you could go out and purchase a nice new espresso maker, watch some YouTube tutorials on creating beautiful latte art, and become a master barista. But admit it: You just don’t have that kind of time. Or, you could just buy yourself a new Verismo System, and enjoy your daily caffeine boost from the comfort of your own home, and for a lot less dough (er…beans?).
If you’re not familiar with the Verismo System, it’s simply an easy-to-use, instant coffee maker. But we’re not talking a simple cup of joe. Yes, it’ll brew up a killer cup of coffee, but it’ll also make a mean latte or an espresso for that much-needed mid-day jolt. Don’t go out and buy a bunch of bags of coffee beans though. The Verismo uses special “pods” that contain all the ingredients needed to make your perfect cup. But we’ll get to those later.
The Verismo comes in two different sizes and a few different color options. The Versimo 580 Brewer is the smaller version. It’s high-pressure brewing system takes less than 15 seconds to heat up and brew your first cup. You can adjust the temperature to fit your needs, and adjust the drip tray to accommodate any size cup. Worried about clean-up? Don’t! The Verismo 580 features an integrated rinse function and a built-in pod removal system that automatically stores up to 10 used pods for easy cleaning.
If you’re looking for a fancier machine, look no further than the Verismo 585 Brewer. Whereas the little brother holds enough water to make 10 pods, this machine holds enough water to make 30 pods, and features a handy LED interface that will indicate when it’s time to fill the water tank, empty the pod container, and clean the machine. Along with all of the other features mentioned above, this machine also has an activated carbon water filtration system to help ensure that you’re using only the highest quality water, making for even better drinks!
Normally, the Verismo 580 Brewer would set you back $199, and the 585 Brewer would cost you $399, but Starbucks is taking $50 and $100 off, respectively! Head over to the Starbucks online store before January 1, 2013 to get the 580 for $149 and the 585 for $299! In addition, you’ll receive a free box of pods and free shipping.
