There's nothing better than the smell of freshly brewed coffee on cold winter mornings. That's why giving — or receiving — a new coffee maker is sure to please. Unfortunately, most coffee makers are fairly expensive, but not during the 2021 Cyber Weekend sales!
Read on to discover the best Black Friday deals that are still live on espresso makers, K-Cup machines, and programmable drip coffee models. There's a model for everyone, even the most finicky of people on your holiday shopping list.
The Mr. Coffee Pod Space-Saving Combo Brewer is down from $130 to just $90 for Black Friday. If you can’t decide between a regular drip coffee maker or one that takes pods, then the Mr. Coffee Pod is perfect for you. It lets you brew coffee in two different ways; either a single serving via a pod — 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 (SS) Carafe using a filterless 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!”
The Nespresso Vertuo Next Espresso Machine is originally $200 but is now just $128. It uses the Nespresso Vertuo capsules, which comes in over 30 blends and produces a super velvety crema that will please coffee and espresso lovers. The Next Espresso Machine brews in several different sizes: five, eight and 18 ounce coffees along with single and double espresso shots. This machine even comes with a complimentary starter set of Nespresso Vertuo capsules.
“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.”
Nespresso’s Creatista Plus Espresso Machine is down from $600 to $488 for Black Friday, which is a savings of $112. Together with the attached milk frother, the Creatista is 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 TFT LCD display is easy to read, and it’ll guide you on how to prepare and maintain this beautiful machine. Bonus: it even comes with a complimentary starter set of Nespresso capsules.
“This machine makes true authentic espresso, I should know, I'm 100% Italian, and I know this machine delivers just that,” said an enthusiastic review on Amazon. “I now call this machine my baby and I treat it as such because great things should be handled with care. It's a beautiful machine, 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 and not warm. The price for this machine is amazing. If you truly love and understand the REAL AUTHENTIC Espresso, then this is the machine for you… I STRONGLY recommend it!”
The Nespresso Lattissima Pro Coffee and Espresso Machine by Delonghi has one of the biggest Black Friday discounts we’ve seen: it’s down from $800 to just $487, which is 39 percent off the retail price. This machine uses the Nespresso capsule system for brewing espresso-like beverages, plus there’s an integrated carafe that dispenses just the right amount of milk depending on your preferred drink. It also has a Thermoblock heating system that’ll brew a fresh cup of coffee in seconds, so there’s no need to wait around in the morning.
“Bought this machine for the office and it is a HUGE SUCCESS!" one Amazon shopper said. "Great features and not to mention "top-of-the-line." The instructions are very "user-friendly." I was able to set up with no problem. The espresso is of a high quality."
The Delonghi 15-bar pump espresso machine has a retail price of $350 but is now down to $300. This espresso machine has a super-compact form that won’t take up too much space on your counter. It has a single boiler and a steamer wand, which is all you need to make your favorite espresso beverage. The easy-to-use control panel and a 3-in-1 filter holder can accommodate single and double shots.
“What a wonderful machine,” said one shopper. “I love this bad boy! Easy to use and it produces quality that you find in professional establishments. It works consistently and efficiently every time no matter how many espressos or other beverages are being made. So far over 100 drinks with absolutely no problems whatsoever. If you are looking for a great espresso machine this is the one. Great value and nice to look at. DeLonghi has done a marvelous job on this machine. Wish I had stock in this guy!”
Ninja’s DualBrew 12-Cup Specialty Coffee system is down from $250 to $160 for Black Friday, giving you a savings of $90. This DualBrew Pro 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 brew 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.”
This is a Black Friday deal you won't want to miss: GE’s Classic Drip is down from $79 to $29. This solid and reliable coffee maker 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 2-hour auto shutoff for safety. It also comes with GoldTone reusable filters just in case you run out of the standard paper ones.
“Sometimes the simplest things are the best way to go, and that is the case with this coffee maker,” said one shopper on Best Buy. “The GE classic drip 12 cup coffee maker is a traditional drip coffee maker 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.”
Mr. Coffee’s 12-Cup Coffee Maker with Strong Brew Selector has dropped from $50 to $30. As the name suggests, this coffee maker lets you brew a bolder cup of coffee with a touch of a button. It automatically pauses when you grab a cup mid-brew and there’s also a Brew Later option that lets you set the coffee maker ahead of time. Plus, it has an automatic cleaning cycle and a water filtration system, which results in better-tasting coffee.
A Best Buy shopper loved it: “If you love coffee, you'll love the 12-cup Mr. Coffee Strong Brew [...] It looks sharp in any kitchen or office. The large 12-cup carafe can be removed for that first cup while still brewing the balance thanks to the grab-n-go filter cup. What I like is the final taste of my coffee. Can't burn if left on as the automatic 2-hour timer shuts off the warming plate if one forgets to shut off the unit. I don't know how the stronger brew button works, but I use it and am pleased with the results.”
