Spencer Platt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Starbucks is about to turn up the heat on the single serve coffee market, introducing a brewer for $199 that can make one cup servings of espresso, lattes, and regular coffee.  

Before you gulp at the price, it doesn’t take long for that $199 investment to pay off.  Think of the savings you can get from not having to put down $3 each time you want your favorite jolt of Joe at a coffee shop.  

This week Starbucks has started selling the Verso, and the machine comes at a time of growing competition for single brewing machines. Green Mountain Coffee Roasters also plans to launch a single cup espresso machine by early next year.
