Amazon Prime Day 2020 arrives on Oct. 13 and 14, and we expect to find some great bargains on all things coffee.
Prime Day comes only once a year, and last year it was bigger than Black Friday and Cyber Monday combined. The event is typically held in June, but has been pushed back to October this year because, well, it’s 2020.
Until we find out what this year’s deals will be, we’ve included on this page some our favorite coffee items. We’ve covered and recommended all of these items at Bean Poet over the past couple of years. They’ve also proven to be popular with Bean Poet readers.
On Prime Day, we’ll update this page with new deals as they become available. Check back throughout the day—they can go fast!
To take advantage of Prime Day prices you will need a Prime membership. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial that will get you through Prime Day.
You can start your shopping by browsing through the items below. We hope you find something you like.
Bean Poet’s Prime Day recommendations
NEW: Calphalon Temp iQ espresso machine
Day 2 begins with a home espresso machine we’ve had our eye on for some time. The Calphalon grinds, brews and steams milk. It’s the real deal if you want to get into home espresso, and they’re offering it for 35 per cent off.
NEW: Nespresso VertuoPlus by De’Longhi
Great price here on a Nespresso machine that allows you to make both espresso and regular coffee. This one is made by De’Longhi (we explain here) and makes only the coffees but does not froth milk.
NEW: Nespresso VertuoPlus by Breville with Aeroccino and coffees
Here’s another great deal if you’re looking for a Nespresso VertuoPlus with a little more capability. This Breville machine comes with an Aeroccino milk frother and a selection of coffees. Learn about the differences here.
NEW: Cuisinart DCC-3200P1
This Cuisinart topped our list of the best coffee makers under $100, and today it’s on for a ridiculous price. It has its own permanent filter so you don’t need to buy paper, and you can program it 24 hours in advance.
NEW: Bodum Travel Press
Bodum has long been the king of the French press, and we love this single-serve travel press that will keep your coffee hot. A great companion for camping or everyday use.
NEW: Technivorm Moccamaster KBG
Wow, we were not expecting this today! Literally our favorite drip coffee brewer at an unbeatable price. The Moccamaster has 50 years of top-notch Dutch engineering behind it and makes great coffee. Deal ends at 7 p.m. PDT Tuesday.
NEW: Fellow Corvo electric kettle
Fellow makes great electric kettles, and while we prefer their gooseneck models for maximum control with pour-over coffee, the Corvo will work well for everything else. Terrific price for this electric kettle.
NEW: Casara milk frother
Casara’s milk frother is highly rated and uses smart settings to froth up milk for cappuccinos, lattes and the link. If you’ve got your espresso covered with another device but have always wanted to add milky drinks to your repertoire, here’s your chance.
NEW: Hamilton Beach 12-cup brewer
Here’s a solid 12-cup brewer for dinner parties and the like. We typically recommend a Cuisinart in the sub-$100 price range, but Hamilton Beach is another solid option and this is a substantial discount. (If you have Alexa, she can make this machine brew!)
NEW: Secura stainless steel French press
People are always looking for a coffee maker with no plastic whatsoever. French presses are among the few options that actually achieve this. The Secura is a good-looking press that makes enough for two people in a single brew.
Carter Everywhere Mug
This is our favourite travel mug to come on the market in the past couple of years. It’s designed with a mouth that’s as wide as your coffee mugs at home, so you get the full aroma and flavor of your coffee while you’re on the go. And it looks quite stylish.
The Chemex brewer is in the Museum of Modern Art and it belongs there. It has appeared in Mad Men and James Bond films, but don’t buy it for its celebrity—buy it for some of the cleanest, most refined coffee you’ll ever brew.
The AeroPress is kind of a genius invention and the one we take traveling whenever we’re not sure what the coffee situation will be at our accommodations. Easy to pack, easy to clean and makes remarkably good coffee one cup at a time.
Espro P7 French press
We’ve said before that French press is our everyday brewing method, and the Espro P7 takes care of the only drawback we can think of: the sediment. A uniquely designed double filter gives you a cleaner cup than you’ll get from any other press.
Baratza Encore grinder
If you like to jump around between brewing methods as much as we do, then the Baratza Encore is a great electric burr grinder for you to start with. Not for serious espresso freaks, but an incredibly handy machine for just about everyone else.
Breville Cafe Roma
When you’re ready to skip the trips to Starbucks and start making your lattes at home, this is the machine. An easy-to-use, entry-level espresso machine that will make just about every specialty drink you want, and teach you a few things as well.
Mr. Coffee 12-cup
Nothing fancy here, just a good, reliable drip coffee brewer that can brew every morning for a couple, or enough for a decent-size dinner party. An affordable coffee maker that can last a long time if you treat it right.
Presto 12-cup percolator
Percolator coffee isn’t big with the hipsters, but we have a lot of readers interested in the Presto. The reason? Strong coffee! If you like it big and bold, not many machines can do it like a percolator and this one can brew for quite a few people as well.
Hamilton Beach ‘The Scoop’
‘The Scoop’ is a great choice if you just want a simple, easy-to-use single-cup coffee maker. It brews in about two and a half minutes, and all you need to do is rinse and refill the reusable filter to get it ready for your next cup.
We got into roasting at home a couple of years ago, and we can assure you it’s a lot of fun. The FreshRoast SR540 makes it as easy as popping corn. You’ll always have the freshest possible coffee, and it will save you a ton of money in the long run.
