There's nothing better than the smell of freshly brewed coffee on cold winter mornings..or any morning, really. That's why giving — or receiving — a new coffeemaker is always an exciting prospect. Read on to discover the best deals on espresso makers, K-Cup machines, and programmable drip coffee models. There's an option for everyone, even the most finicky of java junkies.
If you can’t decide between a regular drip coffee maker or one that takes pods, then this Mr. Coffee hybrid machine — marked down from $130 to just $92 — is perfect for you. It lets you brew coffee in two different ways; either a single serving via a pod (yep, it’s compatible with K-Cup) or up to 10 cups into a carafe using grounds. It has a removable reservoir for easy filling and cleaning, plus it has a fully programmable timer so you can schedule it to wake up to a fresh cup. It also has a compact design that’ll save you valuable countertop real estate.
One Amazon shopper raved about it: “Like many people worldwide I love my morning coffee. This brewer gives me the option to brew a full 10-cup (or less) thermal vacuum–insulated stainless steel carafe using a filter-less basket (I do use paper filters). I can also make a "to go" mug or tall travel cup (my own) with a coffee pod or loose coffee. I love the options to choose what I want! Excellent!”
In recent years, Nespresso has developed a cult-like following in the coffee-drinking world. Fans will find a lot to love with this machine. It uses the Nespresso Vertuo capsules, which come in over 30 blends and produce a super velvety crema that will please coffee and espresso lovers alike. The Next Espresso Machine brews in several different sizes — 5-, 8- and 18-ounces — along with single and double espresso shots. This machine even comes with a complimentary starter set of Nespresso Vertuo capsules. Also complimentary? Amazon's $42 discount.
“How do I explain a machine that I love more than anything else in this house?” raved an Amazon review. “It’s truly the best coffee I’ve ever had. It’s easy — push the button, wait a few seconds, be patient and it starts pouring out. ... Never, ever going back to brewed coffee in a pot. This is the life. Truly the best coffee I’ve ever had.... This is better than a Starbucks latte or any latte I’ve had from an independent coffee shop.”
With a sticker price of $600, this gleaming wonder is clearly aimed at the aficianado market. Owning the Creatista — which comes wiht an attached milk frother — is like having your own personal barista. You can brew all sorts of single-serve coffee and espresso beverages, such as flat whites, cappuccinos and latte macchiatos. The LCD display is easy to read, and it’ll guide you on how to prepare and maintain this beautiful machine. Bonus: It comes with a starter set of Nespresso capsules.
“This machine makes true authentic espresso, I should know, I'm 100 percent Italian, and I know this machine delivers just that,” said an enthusiastic review on Amazon. “Breville Aced this one! Easy to use, easy to clean, and OMG it heats up so fast 3 seconds no kidding. I like my espresso hot, not warm like those other espresso machines make. The frother is amazing and the milk is scalding hot.... If you truly love and understand the real authentic espresso, then this is the machine for you… I STRONGLY recommend it!”
Ninja’s DualBrew 12-Cup Specialty CoffeeLooking for a machine that's a cut above...just maybe not a $600 cut above? You'll find the Ninja DualBrew a just-right choice. It lets you make coffee in either the traditional drip method or via K-Cup pods. You can also dial down the brew even further with different taste profiles such as Classic and Rich. There’s also an Over Ice setting in case you want to make your own iced coffee. You can also brew in nine different portion sizes, from a small cup all the way to a full carafe. Plus, this model comes with a built-in fold-away frother for lattes and cappuccinos.
“The Ninja DualBrew Pro does exactly as it’s designed to do, providing better-tasting coffee than my previous makers, and was half the size of both. The space-saving design makes this a great option for those with limited counter space," said one review. “You won’t go wrong with the Ninja DualBrew Pro.”
Let this be a lesson to you: Basic and excellent are not mutually exclusive. GE’s Classic Drip is a solid and reliable coffee maker that lets you choose between Regular and Bold brew options, and you can also wake up to a fresh cup thanks to a 24-hour programmable auto setting. The wide shower head disperses water evenly over packaged coffee and there’s also a two-hour auto shutoff for safety. It also comes with a GoldTone reusable filter just in case you run out of paper ones.
“Sometimes the simplest things are the best way to go, and that is the case with this coffee maker,” said one happy Best Buy shopper. “The GE Classic drip 12-cup coffeemaker is a traditional drip coffeemaker with an easy and convenient delayed start option and a timer. The coffee maker is fully wrapped in a tasteful stainless steel and a modern look that fits into your kitchen or office environment ... All in all, this is a reliable and solid-built coffee maker that will last for years to come.”
