It makes sense to look for the best Prime Day espresso machine deals because there’s no way around it: High-quality espresso makers are expensive. I’ve tested dozens of them and have come to the conclusion that if a coffee lover picks an espresso maker primarily because it seems like a good deal, they’re likely going to be disappointed. Amazon Prime Day is one exception to that rule (see also: Black Friday and Cyber Monday). This is a chance to get hundreds and hundreds of dollars off a lot of quality coffee makers from brands like Breville, Miele, and Nespresso (Yes, we’re counting Nespresso machines as espresso makers here. Don’t panic, coffee nerds, we know they’re a different sort of single-serve coffee maker. But as pod machines go, they make a nice cup of coffee).

There are probably well over a hundred espresso machines of one kind or another on sale over the next two days. That is more than anyone should have to sift through, but that’s what we’re here for. This page won’t be filled with random discounted items like some other Amazon Prime Day deal stories that might be bouncing around. If you see it here, it means someone on staff has some experience with the espresso maker in question and thinks this is a good get. It’s also why, no matter how steep the discount, you won’t find, say, a K-cup machine on here because we just think there are a lot of espresso machines that do a better job (if you want a more full rundown on that, my colleague Emily Farris has it here).

Fully automatic espresso makers deals

Fully automatic machines, or super automatic espresso machines, are exactly what they sound like. With the push of a single button, these machines will grind, tamp, and brew coffee, and, if you ask them to, froth milk for a latte. For the espresso purist, or even the moderately obsessive home barista, fully automatic machines don’t offer the joy of precisely dialing an espresso shot. But for the people who want the best coffee they can get with the least amount of effort. These machines don’t require the annoying trial and error of dialing in an espresso shot.

Spinn Coffee Maker

This is one of the coolest gadgets I’ve come across in 2023, and it comes with a $150 coupon right now good for 19% off. The Spinn Coffee Maker uses a centrifuge to brew coffee instead of the standard drip or pump situation. The result of the method is that, while not brewing espresso in the traditional sense of that term, it mimics a delicious espresso coffee incredibly well. What’s more, it can also ape pour-over and cold brew in a surprisingly effective way in about two minutes. If you’re used to waiting 12 hours for cold brew, you know that’s really something.

Miele CM5300 Coffee System

Perhaps you know the German company Miele for its “oh my god, how did the dishes get so clean?” dishwasher. But they have several fully automatic coffee systems, and this is the one currently in my dining room being put through its paces. As super automatic machines go this one has a pretty small footprint (if you’re new to super automatics, this is a big deal). It makes pretty great coffee and more flavorful espresso than most of the rest I’ve tried. Plus it comes with the ability to make two coffee drinks at the same time so everyone can be simultaneously caffeinated to start the morning. One of the most convenient about it though: It has a lot of dishwasher safe pieces—a smart feature most espresso machines lack. Do note, the milk jug (which you need for cappuccinos and lattes) and thermal carafe (for brewing by the pot instead of the cup) .

DEAL: Miele CM5300 Coffee System$1,399 $899 at AmazonCafé Affetto Automatic Espresso Machine and Milk Frother

Café makes a phenomenal drip coffee maker, but they also do a nice automatic espresso machine that, even at full price, is already one of the more affordable machines out there. Right now it’s discounted even more. The built-in milk frother can do cappuccinos and lattes.

DEAL: Café Affetto Automatic Espresso Machine + Milk Frother$629 $529 at AmazonPhilips 3200 Series with Lattego

The Philips 3200 is simple as far as fully automatic machines go, but sometimes simple is best. It has separate buttons for each drink it can make and makes just five drinks (Americano, espresso, cappuccino, latte, and regular coffee). It also comes at a whopping 44% for Prime Day.

DEAL: PHILIPS 3200 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine With LatteGo$1,000 $549 at AmazonPhilips 2200 with Lattego

Basically, this machine is the same as the 3200—but it requires you to separately dispense hot water for an Americano, and it can’t do a latte. Still, with an extra $200 off, the discount is heavy this one.

Semiautomatic espresso machines

Semiautomatic machines require a little more work out of you. You’ll have to tamp the coffee grounds yourself and lock the portafilter (the thing that holds the coffee) into the brewhead of the machine. You’ll also have to steam your own milk using the machine’s steam wand if you want a flat white. These can come with and without a built-in grinder, and, after testing a lot of machines with grinders I will tell you that the added feature can be good and bad. It is so convenient to have a built-in grinder—convenient that you don’t need a separate grinder and convenient that you don’t have to dump ground coffee from a plastic catch container into the portafilter and clean up afterwards. But the downsides are that these grinders almost never come with as many settings as standalone burr grinders do, and they are also typically less powerful. For those reasons I recommend you only use medium or dark roast beans if you go this route (the darker the roast, the easier it is to grind. 

Breville Barista Express Impress

If a super automatic and a semi-automatic espresso maker had a baby that made really good coffee it would be the Barista Express Impress. This is Breville’s first machine to include smart grinding and tamping: Just place the portafilter into its slot and push the grind button. You’ll get exactly the amount of coffee you need, which you will now after you lower the tamping lever and see the happy green light. Beyond that it has all the features we like so much about the whole Barista line: built-in pressure gauge to know you’re brewing correctly, adjustable temperature, and a really effective steam wand.

DEAL: Breville Barista Express Impress$900 at AmazonBreville Barista Express

The express without the Impress is still pretty darn good. This is essentially the same machine without the smart features that make dosing espresso so fast, easy, and clean. It still has the ability to pull a very good shot and on Prime Day it’s $200 off.

DEAL: Breville Barista Express$750 $550 at Amazon Breville Duo Temp Pro Espresso Machine

A classic and basic Breville machine. This one can make coffee about as well as the mid-level machines in the Barista series, but it comes at a much lower price because you have to turn a dial to produce coffee or steam instead of having a series of buttons to choose from. It also lacks a pressure gauge, so good espresso can involve more trial and error.

DEAL: Breville Duo Temp Pro Espresso Machine$499 $375 at AmazonDelonghi La Specialista Arte

This Delonghi machine doesn’t offer a huge discount right now, but if past Prime Day sales are any indicator, I would not be surprised to see the price come down during the actual promotion period. It’s a nice machine that worked on par with Breville machines like the Infuser or the Barista Express. Just know that Delonghi has slightly differently sized portafilters, so if you have any extra equipment for a 54 millimeter basket, it probably won’t be compatible; you’ll need to use the Delonghi issued stuff.

Nespresso espresso makers

Nespresso machines are not espresso makers per se, but my colleagues Li and Emily have both found that they produce effortless espresso in a hurry—and that’s reason enough to love them. 

Nespresso Vertuo Plus

A simple, slick, and very effective Nespresso machine, the Vertuo Plus uses a single button to brew a number of different drinks, because it can read a barcode on every pod that tells it how much water to use and how to brew.

Nespresso VertuoPlus Coffee and Espresso Machine$160 $110 at AmazonNespresso Latissima

Nespresso has branched out into including milk frothing capabilities. This machine is essentially a fully automatic espresso maker that uses Nespresso pods instead of beans. Easy and slick, if you’ve been using a basic Nespresso and want to upgrade, or are just Nespresso curious, this is is a good pick-up.
