Best Nespresso Machines Under $100

Best Nespresso Machines Under $100 – Buyer’s Guide

Alright, let’s start with something you probably know – finding an espresso machine for just $100 is really cheap. In the past, people would have thought it was impossible to get one so affordable unless there was a big sale like Black Friday.

You want to look for good quality and comfortable to use, especially if you can sip coffee for 3-4 cups daily.

I’ve tried out a bunch of Nespresso machines, and here are the best ones I found that cost less than $100.

Nespresso Vertuo Pop

Nespresso Inissia

Nespresso Vertuo Pop

Until 2023, finding a Nespresso machine for under $100 was pretty much a pipe dream (unless there was some big sale going on). But Nespresso saw what people were looking for and came out with the Vertuo Pop, which is pretty wallet-friendly.

The Nespresso Vertuo Pop is designed for those who are short on space and don’t want to spend a ton. This colorful pod coffee maker offers a delightful variety in size and flavor. It accommodates four distinct coffee sizes – the classic espresso (40ml), a double espresso (80ml), the generous mug (230ml), and the gran lungo (150ml). Each size comes with an array of flavor options, so it’s never boring.

Using it is super easy – just insert the Vertuo pod and press a button, and you’re good to go. The machine’s intelligent technology automatically recognizes the blend. 

Beyond its functional appeal, the Vertuo Pop stands out aesthetically as well. You’ve got six colors to choose from, so it can either match your kitchen or stand out as a cool accent piece.

Now, for those in the US, you can’t get the Vertuo Pop. But don’t worry, American coffee enthusiasts aren’t left out. 

The Nespresso Vertuo Pop+ is the alternative available stateside. Resembling the Vertuo Pop in design, the Pop+ is slightly larger, featuring a 25.4fl oz (750ml) water tank. It offers the same four cup sizes as the Vertuo Pop, with an added bonus of an XL 12oz option, perfect for those who need a larger caffeine fix.

Introducing Vertuo Pop was a smart move by Nespresso. They’re giving people what they want – a stylish, easy-to-use, and affordable coffee machine.

Nespresso Inissia

Nespresso Inissia is one of the Nespresso top-selling machines has to offer. It’s part of their OriginalLine, and what’s great is that it’s their least expensive model. I have a few different espresso machines at home, but the Inissia is the one I use the most. Its ease of use is what really does it for me.

This little espresso machine can brew both regular and long shots of espresso. It packs a punch with up to 19 bars of pressure, and it’s got two (brew size) buttons. You can either go for a regular 1.35-ounce shot of espresso or a larger 5-ounce lungo. It’s super easy to use and small enough to fit in any kitchen.

Plus, being part of the Original line, it’s compatible with a wide range of Nespresso pods – I have five favorites that I often go back to.

Now, it’s not a flawless machine; sometimes it squishes the capsules or messes up the water volume. But overall, it’s a solid choice. It works well, and it won’t make a dent in your wallet.

Which Nespresso Machines Is Best Under 100 Dollars?

If I have to give my opinion on which one to choose around $100, I would prefer the Vertuo Pop+. It has a lot of latest features and makes great coffee. 

As we have seen, there are not many Nespresso machines that come under $100. But we still have two options that fit this price tag. The first option is from the OriginalLine series, is from the VertuoLine series.

So if you want to try the VertuoLine experience under 100 dollars, the Vertuo Pop is a better option. If you find its pods too expensive (which they are), you can go for a Nespresso Original machine like the Inissia. You will find alternative cheap pods that are good for both your budget and your taste.
