Coffee and Espresso Machine Deals

Check out our Best Espresso Machines and Best Automated Espresso and Cappuccino Machines guides for other recommendations.

A good budget espresso machine is a rare find, but this one is our favorite we’ve tested. You’ll get a solid portafilter, a reliable steam pump, and a steaming wand in a pretty compact body. WIRED reviewer Medea Giordano was gifted this after she got married and says it’s easy to use whether you want to brew espresso or just stream milk for coffee, and it takes up very little room on your counter.

Mr. Coffee One-Touch

This humble little espresso machine is fully capable of not only pulling great coffee but steaming your milk for you. It’s semi-automated, and to achieve that it has a milk container you fill up and keep in the fridge. During testing, WIRED reviewer Jeffrey Van Camp found that you need to keep the container pretty clean, giving it a deep clean at least once a week.

This is the less expensive version of the Mr. Coffee One-Touch. It’s made of lighter materials, so it’s a bit more plasticky, and you really have to hold it in place when you’re wrenching your portafilter into place. But other than that, it will still steam your milk for you (with a small container you keep in the fridge).

This coffee maker (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is more advanced than you’d think at first glance. It uses a pair of boilers and three different brewing speeds to make excellent coffee. It looks like the 8-cup brewer on steroids and has three different brew sizes: small brews (2 to 4 cups), medium brews (5 to 8 cups), and large brews (9 to 12 cups).

Low on caffeine—and counter space? The K-Express is a mere 6.5 inches wide and 12 inches deep, yet its 36-fluid-ounce, removable reservoir holds enough water to make a round of coffee for you and your friends without having to constantly refill it. Just do the planet a solid and make sure to use Keurig Reusable Pods to cut down on single-use plastic waste.

Aeropress

The justly popular Aeropress’s genius isn’t so much that makes great coffee (it does), but that it makes it difficult to make bad coffee. I’ve yet to have bad coffee from an Aeropress, which is something I can’t really say for any other coffee brewer. This is the lowest price we’ve seen in six months.

It’s not the best sale we’ve seen on the AeroPress Go (9/10, WIRED Recommends) in the last year, but it’s still a fine price if you’re looking for a gift idea for a coffee lover. It’s barely bigger than a coffee mug, but still works as well as the standard Aeropress (which is also on sale).

Look, Keurigs don’t make gourmet coffee. But if you aren’t picky or just want something for those mornings when you can’t be bothered to do more than insert a pod, this is a nice choice. It takes up very little room and comes in several nice colors.

If you wish your morning espresso routine felt a little more beautiful, then the Flair Classic Espresso Maker belongs on your countertop. It’s our favorite hand-powered espresso machine, and the look is gorgeous and timeless. The stainless steel Signature Pro 2 is also on sale if you’re looking for a splurge.

This is the best price we’ve seen all year for this portable espresso maker, which is featured in our guides to gifts for coffee lovers and the Best Portable Espresso Makers. It’s lightweight, but reliable, and it produces delicious espresso.

The Cafe Affetto sold me on fully automated espresso machines. You fill it up with beans and water, and that’s it. It does all the rest. No tamping espresso, no grinding it, though you’ll still have to position your milk pitcher under the steam wand. Everything else is handled by the machine. Note that the crazy low price at Amazon is only on the white color, but if that works for you that is $10 less than the lowest price we’ve ever seen.

Almond Cow’s Milk Maker is one of our favorite at-home-nut-milk-maker-machines. This little thing lets you turn almonds and water into almond milk right on your kitchen counter. Tester Richard Baguley found that it produced tasty almond milk with a nice creamy mouthfeel, and noted that the machine can make a concentrated version of the almond milk if you’d like more of a creamy addition to your coffee.

MioMat’s Plant Milk Maker is a great pick for anyone who wants to make a variety of different non-dairy milks at home. You can make almond milk, soy milk, and even milks from cereal crops like quinoa and rye. On top of all that it can be used to make smoothies and soups, too. Tester Richard Baguley noted that it only takes about 15 minutes for the machine to make a batch of raw milk, and about 25 minutes for one of the hot milk options.

Fellow Opus

It’s lightweight for a burr grinder, and it’s small enough for a small side table. In my time with it, the Opus (9/10, WIRED Recommends) has ground hundreds of shots of espresso perfectly. The burrs need to be cleaned a bit more often than other burr grinders I’ve tested, but that’s quick and easy to do.

Fellow’s Ode Grinder feels like an absolute tank, and its flat burrs grind the most consistent pour-over coffee I’ve ever seen. Flat burr grinders are typically expensive, especially ones that can give you a grind fine enough for an espresso machine. This one doesn’t grind coffee for espresso, but it grinds explicitly for every other coffee brewing method. Drip, pour-over, cold brew, French press, you name it. You’ll get really rich flavors out of your beans that a conical burr grinder might not get you.

VSSL makes ultra-durable camping tools—waterproof canisters with flashlights, compasses, first aid kits, and more from a slender tube made of aircraft-grade aluminum. The Java grinder is an extension of that—a portable coffee grinder rugged enough to survive the zombie apocalypse or a bumpy ride to your favorite campsite. It’s incredibly well-made, yet (relatively) lightweight. The handle is clever. It folds out and provides a lot of leverage while you grind, and you can use it as a hook to hang the Java up when you’re done. The setup produces a nice even grind—enough coffee to brew a good strong two-cup mokapot.

Stagg’s EKG Pro is a sleek and gorgeous electric kettle. It features a gooseneck spout for precisely controlling your pour, making it the perfect choice for pour-over fans. There’s an OLED screen that shows the water temperature and a little dial to set the exact temperature you want. (It can keep it at that temperature for up to an hour.) You can schedule the kettle to reach a set temperature at a set time, adjust your altitude settings, and it even has a handy guide mode to help you figure out what temperature you should be using for different beverages.

This is the non-Pro model of the Stagg EKG Electric Kettle, but it’s still one of my favorites. It doesn’t have all the features you get on the Pro, but it’s a solid kettle with a long gooseneck that can deliver the precise control you need for a great pour-over.

This coffee grinder is the best one you’ll find with a built-in scale. Set your grind size, select the weight you want, hit Start, and walk away; it shuts itself off when it’s done. It’s easier than using a kitchen scale, and makes better use of limited counterspace.

If you prefer to hand-grind your coffee like WIRED senior reviewer Scott Gilbertson, then Hario’s Skerton Pro is the one to get. He says it’s fast and produces a consistent, fine grind (so not a great choice for French press users). There’s also a travel version that’s on sale for a couple bucks off.

Coffee, Storage, and Scale Deals

Partners Coffee Roasters

Partners Coffee’s Brooklyn blend is one of my all-time favorites. I’m excited every time it shows up on my doorstep. It has a rich, full-bodied flavor that just feels round and smooth in the mouth. I don’t know how to describe what roundness tastes like, but trust me, this coffee tastes delightfully round. Circular even. This deal is good for anywhere from one bag to 4 pounds of coffee.

When you test coffee and coffee machines for a living, you really become a stickler for good decaf, and that’s exactly what Partners’ Ghost Town Decaf is. I truly couldn’t tell the difference between it and normal coffee. I still find myself going back to check the bag to make sure I’m grinding the right coffee. It’s rich and warm, with very light toasty notes that don’t overpower the hint of a floral finish.

Atlas Coffee

Atlas is one of our favorite coffee subscription services. It has a wide variety of excellent coffees that can fit just about anyone’s tastes. I honestly have yet to try a bag I haven’t liked. This deal is actually for a free bag of coffee. Just pay shipping. You can pair it up with a full subscription or an extra bag so you’re getting two for one, but what’s better than free?

Trade makes our favorite coffee subscription. Right now gift subscriptions and gift boxes are on sale at up to 30 percent off. Prices start at $21.

In our guide to the Best Coffee Subscriptions, we say Blue Bottle is the best pick for the fastest and freshest delivery. The Cyber Monday sale is vast, covering all sorts of blends and bundles. The discount will show up in your shopping cart.

Bean & Bean Coffee is making great coffee for a great cause. The brand is on a mission to improve the working conditions for women in the coffee industry. Use coupon code BLACKCOFFEE to save 20 percent on a coffee or tea subscription.

Fellow Atmos

The Atmos Vacuum Canister is an airtight canister you can use to store coffee beans or other food items that would benefit from an anaerobic environment. You just fill it up, put the lid on, give it a bunch of twists until the little nub on the top clicks inside and you’re all good.

A new pick on some of our coffee guides, the Tally Pro is the MacBook Pro of kitchen scales. It’s solid, hefty, made of metal and glass, and every dial and button feels like it was deliberately tuned to provide an appreciably tactile experience. Like the Stagg EKG Pro, the Tally Pro has an OLED screen beside the control dial to help you navigate the scale’s different modes, measurement units, and helpful tools—like the brew assist mode to help you time your pour-over just right.

Coffee Mug and Pour-Over Deals

Ember Mug

The Ember Mug is for anyone who has ever forgotten about a cup of coffee or tea until it’s almost terribly cold and promised themselves they wouldn’t forget next time … only to do exactly that. It’s a mug with a built-in heating element and a helpful app. Yes, this is a mug with an app. Does a mug need an app? Not really. But it’s pretty fun. The Ember Mug can keep your drink hot for about 70 to 80 minutes, depending on your heat setting. It can also rewarm a cold beverage.

The Carter Carry tumbler is adorable. It’s smooth, with a matte finish on the outside, and the lid has a sturdy metal bar that makes twisting it open a breeze. During testing, I found that other tumblers and water bottles with narrow lids and nowhere to grip require a lot more wrist strength to open up. This tumbler’s wide grip means you don’t have to twist as hard to get the leverage you need to open it up. Inside, it has a ceramic coating that keeps your beverage from getting a weird flavor, and it also includes a little splash guard.

The Stagg XF Pour-Over set includes a double-walled borosilicate glass carafe, metal dripper, and filters—everything you need to either start experimenting with pour-over or master your existing technique. At 700 milliliters it’s smaller than most Chemex pour-over carafes, but if you’re just brewing for one or two it’s a perfect size.

East Fork The Mug

This viral mug was featured in our gift guides for coffee lovers and moms—so if your momma loves coffee, it’s a doubly great gift. It’s usually pretty affordable, but this small Cyber Monday discount is still nice, especially if you opt to get a 4-pack and save over $30.
