Everyone's probably been told that they could save some serious money by just giving up their daily Starbucks habit—and while it may be sound advice, you’re probably not ready to part ways with the highlight of your morning just yet. However, if you’re open to changing the routine a bit, you can still get your Starbucks fix every day without visiting a single barista through this Starbucks Varismo System, a coffee and espresso brewer that's ready to serve up your daily brew right in your own kitchen.
Just like ordering from your local Starbucks barista, you’ll get the same high-quality and consistency from the single-serve Verismo brewer. It uses dual-pressure technology to pull authentic espresso shots in single servings, which you can enjoy solo or prepare them in your favorite cappuccino, macchiato, latte, or Americano.
You can craft just about every Starbucks specialty at home with Verismo pods, featuring various Starbucks signature coffee blends, roasts, espresso, tea, and even milk. All you have to do is pop the pod in the machine, press your desired settings, and watch it brew (sniffing and making audible sighs while it brews fresh coffee is optional).
