There's nothing better than the smell of freshly brewed coffee on cold winter mornings. That's why giving — or receiving — a new coffeemaker is sure to please. Unfortunately, most quality coffeemakers are fairly expensive — most, but not all.
Read on to discover the best deals that are brewing on espresso makers, Nespresso machines and programmable drip coffee models. There's a model for everyone, even the most finicky of java junkies.
Talk about the best of both worlds! The Hamilton Beach 2-Way is a dream come true for morning get-up-and-goers. On one side, you can dispense your brew into a 12-cup carafe, so everyone can start their day with a mugful. Then, just flip the switch and it'll fill a travel mug, so you can enjoy a cup during your morning commute. The included single-serving mesh scoop provides all the convenience of a K-Cup without the added expense (and all that wasteful plastic!).
The 2-Way is programmable, so just add your grounds, pour in the water and have a fresh pot waiting for you when you wake up. And oh yeah: It will automatically shut itself off after two hours; no more fretting at your desk — Wait, did I turn off the coffeemaker?
"I'm loving it!" gushed one joyous joe fan. "I did a lot of research prior to purchasing and read both good and bad reviews. The Hamilton Beach 2 Way brewer offers versatility at an unbeatable price! We replaced our Keurig with this machine, and I'm thrilled with our decision!"
The Nespresso Vertuo Next Espresso Machine is originally $200 but is now just $152. 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.”
When it comes to at-home brewing coffee, there's something to be said for the KISS mentality — Keep It Simple, Stupid. This 12-cup stalwart from the folks at Mr. Coffee features a brew-strength selector, programmability and an auto-pause function (who wants to wait for the entire carafe to fill before grabbing a cup?!), and frankly, that's all the bells and whistles most of us need.
The best news, though? You can now grab one of these babies at Walmart for a ridonculous $17 — that's 66 percent off!
"This coffeemaker is easy to use and has a relatively small footprint freeing up space on the counter," reported a happy shopper. "It also makes very good tasting coffee. I have found Mr. Coffee coffeemakers make coffee that is equal to or surpass more expensive machines."
The Delonghi 15-bar pump espresso machine has a retail price of $455 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!”
The "Plus" in this ingenious item's name? That refers to its dual functionality as a coffeemaker and hot-water dispenser. Ideal for those households — and there are many of them — that include morning tea or cocoa drinkers. Just press a button and, voila, piping hot Early Grey, chamomile or Swiss Miss. You can even use this to whip up instant oatmeal! The Coffee Plus is also programmable and features a Brew Pause function for impatient types. We suggest you don't pause, however, on snapping up one of these — it's currently $75 off at Walmart, probably not for long.
"I bought this because I have only ever had a one-cup-at-a-time coffeemaker because my husband drinks coffee and I drink tea," related this happy parent. "We were empty nesters but the chicks have come home, so we needed a actual pot of coffee every morning! This has a timer!!! I put coffee in the filter push the auto button and, wha-la, coffee is ready and waiting by 7am! And I always have hot water for tea (and the occasional hot cocoa and peppermint schnapps)!!! It's wonderful!!!"
