Black Friday proper has ended in both the US and UK, but espresso machines are still proving the subject of some truly amazing Black Friday deals on both sides of the Atlantic. Many of these savings are likely to bleed into this year's Cyber Monday deals, too.
The likes of Amazon and Walmart in the US (and John Lewis and Very in the UK) have kept their respective slates of Black Friday espresso machine deals live, and it's not just the cheaper models on sale, either – some of the best espresso machines around are enjoying discounts right now.
You'll find our pick of the current sales below, and if you've got a different type of coffee maker in mind, we're also tracking the best Black Friday Keurig deals, best Black Friday Nespresso deals and, more generally, the best Black Friday coffee maker deals.

Black Friday espresso machine deals (US): under $100
Sowtech 3.5-Bar, 4 Cup Espresso Maker and Cappuccino Machine: was
$90 now $55 at Amazon
Amazon is offering a great deal on this capable Sowtech espresso maker in time for Black Friday. For only $55, you'll get a compact but powerful machine whose single-knob control system couldn't be easier to use. You won't get many of the flashier features found in more expensive espresso makers, mind you, but this is still a deal worth considering in the run-up to this year's major sale event.
Klarstein Passionata Rossa Espresso and Cappuccino Machine: was
$150 now $80 at Amazon
This Klarstein espresso and cappuccino machine comes in two different power variants, but the deal on the 15-bar model is offering the best value for money right now. For just $80, you'll get a built-in steaming nozzle to go along with that powerful pressure pump, and the machine's water reservoir is supposedly large enough to fill six cups of coffee before needing to be refilled.
Chefman Barista Pro Espresso Machine: was
$139 now $99 at Walmart
You can now save $40 on this coffee machine at Walmart. Six functions allow you to brew an espresso, latte, or cappuccino - with the option to add a double shot, too. There's also a built-in milk frother to make your in-store favorites just as good at home.
Black Friday espresso machine deals (US): over $100
Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Maker by Breville: was
$159 now $119 at Amazon
Similar to the Nespresso Vertuo Next, the Vertuo Plus can make 5, 8, 14 or 18 oz coffees and espressos, but the difference here is that the Plus has an automatic open for pods and a rotating water tank. You'll lose out on the Next's Wi-Fi connectivity, mind, but your water (and therefore your coffee) will stay fresher. Amazon is offering a giant $41 off the black Breville variant of the Vertuo Plus right now.
Cyetus Espresso Machine with Milk Frother: was
$140 now $120 at Amazon
Cyetus' 15-bar espresso machine was listed for under $100 ahead of Black Friday, but oddly, its price has jumped back up by $20 for Black Friday itself. Still, given the price of comparable coffee hardware, $120 isn't too difficult a figure to swallow. You'll get a built-in steam wand with this one, too, meaning it doubles as a cappuccino and latte maker, saving you the need to shell out on those equally pricey machines.
Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee and Espresso Machine by De'Longhi: was
$179 now $125 at Amazon
Amazon has the mega-popular Nespresso Vertuo Next coffee machine at $120 right now, which is just $25 shy of its lowest-ever price. This deal has ebbed and flowed by a few dollars either way in recent days, and while its price may drop down slightly more for Black Friday itself, we'd suggest making use of this cracking discount before stock sells out.
Nespresso Vertuo Evoluo Coffee and Espresso Machine by De'Longhi: was
$219 now $153 at Amazon
The Evoluo variant of Nespresso's Vertuo machine boasts a 26% bigger water reservoir than the Next, a larger body size, a more powerful heating element and a larger used capsule capacity. This is the beefiest bit of kit in the Vertuo lineup, and we don't expect to see its price drop too much more (if at all) this Black Friday.
Nespresso Essenza Mini Espresso Machine by Breville: was
$200 now $159 at Amazon
Nespresso's Essenza espresso machine rarely enjoys price drops, so this 20% off deal is well worth considering if you're after a compact and sleek-looking coffee maker this Black Friday. The more expensive milk frother bundle is also on sale at Amazon, while stock on the black variant is running low. For our money, then, this white model is your best bet – even if we have seen it $10 cheaper at various points this week.
Nespresso Pixie Espresso Machine by Breville: was
$230 now $162 at Amazon
Nespresso's barista-grade espresso maker, the Pixie, is almost identical to the Nespresso Inissia, save for its aluminum casing and flashing reservoir light. Amazon has knocked a whopping $68 off the list price of this Breville variant to bring its price down to $162, which is almost the lowest we've ever seen. Black Friday coffee maker deals don't get much better than this, especially when it comes to pricey Nespresso machines.
KitchenAid Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine: was
$350 now $250 at Amazon
KitchenAid appliances rarely come cheap, and $250 isn't exactly inexpensive for a semi-automatic espresso machine. However, with this particular model you'll get dual smart temperature sensors, fast heat-up (less than 45 seconds), an automatic milk frother and the option to brew barista-grade lattes and cappuccinos (as well as espressos), all for a $100 less than usual (which equals Amazon's best-ever price).
Nespresso Lattissima One Coffee Maker by De'Longhi: was
$399 now $280 at Amazon
Finished in a striking porcelain white with LED illumination, this Nespresso Lattissima coffee maker is a stylish bit of kit – and it's never, ever been cheaper. Its focus is on simplicity, so you'll be able to make espressos, lungos, macchiatos and cappuccinos with the single touch of a button, and the Lattissima's design is compact enough to fit on any kitchen counter. Put simply: this is a mega Black Friday deal.
KitchenAid Metal Espresso Machine: was
$450 now $330 at Amazon
The more premium sibling to its standard semi-automatic sibling, the KitchenAid Metal espresso machine (known as the Artisan in the UK) boasts all the same practical bells and whistles with the added bonus of a weightier metallic finish. This high-end model has never been cheaper at Amazon, and is also available in black.
Nespresso Lattissima Pro Espresso Machine by De'Longhi: was $
649 now $454 at Amazon
Finished in brushed aluminium with LED illumination, the Nespresso Lattissima is a stylish bit of kit. It'll be ready to make coffee in under 25 seconds from start-up, and boasts 6 pre-set beverages, a 19-bar pressure pump and a touchscreen display (because why not?). You'll get De’Longhi’s patented ‘single touch’ milk carafe and frothing system with this one, too, all for 30% less than Amazon's usual £649 price tag.
Nespresso Creatista Plus Coffee Machine by Breville: was
£650 now $455 at Amazon
One of the more premium Nespresso machines, the Nespresso Creatista Plus is sophisticated and slick. It has a steam arm for milk frothing (which is great for latte art, too), and also comes with a steel jug. What's more, if you're a tea drinker, the Creatista Plus can even produce hot water. $195 is a huge saving on the stainless steel version of this premium model for Black Friday.
Philips 3200 Series Fully Automatic Espresso Machine: was
$700 now $549 at Amazon
Amazon has this high-end Philips espresso machine at $151 less than its normal retail price for Black Friday. With the help of a 60-hertz touchscreen display, the 3200 Series lets you brew espressos, americanos and espresso lungos (which are essentially larger espressos) with ease. The machine's AquaClean technology also guarantees that you'll be able to brew 5,000 cups before needing to descale. Sure, $549 is still pricey – but if you're really into your coffee, you'll know that similar machines retail for much, much more.
Nespresso Creatista Pro Coffee Machine by Breville: was
£850 now $595 at Amazon
The Nespresso Creatista Plus has never been so cheap. Compared to the Plus, the Pro is taller, slightly wider, has brushed stainless steel, a much larger water tank and a larger screen that uses a touchscreen LCD panel. In other words, this model is the Creatista dialled up to 11, and it's a coffee maker that isn't like to return to such a low price until Black Friday next year.
Black Friday espresso machine deals (UK): quick links
Black Friday proper has passed in the UK, but Black Friday espresso machine deals are still abundant at retailers including Amazon, Very, Currys and John Lewis. We've collated our pick of the discounts below.
- Amazon: wide selection available
- Argos: same day collection available
- Currys: save on Breville and De'Longhi
- John Lewis: several discounts live
- Wayfair: offering free delivery
Black Friday espresso machine deals (UK): under £100
Tassimo Bosch Style Coffee Machine: was
£106 now £29 at Currys
Currys is currently offering this vibrant Tassimo coffee machine for £77 less than its usual retail price. For just £29, the Tassimo Bosch Style will let you brew up to 50 different types of coffee, and will automatically shut itself off when not in use to help you save energy. This particular machine is also available in black, cream, orange or white at Currys for the same price, though we'd suggest acting on all these deals swiftly, as they're likely to prove very popular throughout November.
De'Longhi Nescafé Dolce Gusto Piccolo: was
£80 now £30 at Currys
If you're after an inexpensive, single-serve coffee machine that makes cafe-grade espressos, latte macchiatos and cappuccinos, look no further than Krups' Nescafé Dolce Gusto Piccolo. Slightly smaller than the brand's Infinissima model, this coffee machine is capable of brewing 40 different beverage varieties – including Nescafe and Starbucks coffees – though its versatility comes at the expense of a smaller (0.8-litre) water tank. Still, for just £30, the Piccolo is a steal.
Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee Machine: was
£149 now £50 at Nespresso
Nespresso's own Black Friday promotion is offering the Vertuo Next, Next Premium and Next Deluxe (plus an advent calendar) for just £50 if you sign up to one of the brand's monthly pod subscriptions (which start at £25). If you're someone who regularly gets through 50 or more Nespresso capsules on a regular basis, then this offer could be for you – otherwise, we'd suggest considering the standalone machine deals on offer elsewhere.
Nescafé Dolce Gusto Infinissima Coffee Machine by Krups: was
£120 now £59 at Amazon
This De'Longhi Nescafé capsule coffee machine is a whopping 50% off at Amazon this Black Friday. For £59, you'll get a 1.2-litre water tank, an adjustable drip tray that's suitable for all cup sizes and, most importantly, high quality coffee brewed with a thick velvety crema (courtesy of the machine's 15-bar pump pressure). This particular Krups model is also available with discounted Nescafé pods.
Nespresso Vertuo Next Coffee Machine by Krups: was
£170 now £69 at Amazon
For its slim size (5.6-inches across), the Nespresso Vertuo Next is versatile and super easy to use. It makes beautifully smooth espressos and americanos, and you can choose five different cup sizes ranging from espresso to a 41ml drink. Amazon is offering this Krups-made model (in either grey or black) for just £69, which is the lowest price we've ever seen.
Beko CEP5152B Espresso Pump Coffee Machine: was
£100 now £73 at Amazon
This Beko espresso machine boasts a 15-bar pump and 200ml water tank, and is compatible with both ESE pods and ground coffee. Amazon had this particular model at a record-low £70 in August 2022, so £73 is an almost-record-breaking saving for Black Friday. Its price may drop even lower in the weeks to come, but equally, stock might run out before that moment comes.
Black Friday espresso machine deals (UK): over £100
Nespresso Vertuo Plus Coffee and Espresso Maker by Krups: was
£200 now £100 at Amazon
Similar to the Nespresso Vertuo Next, the Vertuo Plus can make 5, 8, 14 or 18 oz coffees and espressos, but the difference here is that the Plus has an automatic open for pods and a rotating water tank. You'll lose out on the Next's Wi-Fi connectivity, mind, but your water (and therefore your coffee) will stay fresher. £100 is a great deal for the black variant of this model on Black Friday, but stock is running low.
L'OR Barista Coffee Machine and Milk Frother: was
£165 now £100 at Amazon
More powerful than its Sublime sibling, L'OR's mainline Barista model boasts a 19-bar pressure pump and gives you the option of enjoying milk-based coffee drinks, like cappuccinos and lattes, as well as espressos thanks to its attached milk frother. This is the lowest price we've ever seen at Amazon, and we don't think it's going to improve much more on or after Black Friday itself.
Krups Virtuoso Pump Espresso Coffee Machine: was
£200 now £118 at Amazon
This high-end Krups espresso maker has never been cheaper at Amazon. Exceptionally compact (compared to similar-level machines, at least) and boasting a built-in (rather than attachable) milk frother, the Virtuoso is a great all-rounder for anyone looking for good-quality coffee at a reasonable price. We don't expect it to drop much lower than £118 on Black Friday, either.
Breville One-Touch CoffeeHouse Coffee Machine: was
£220 now £146 at Amazon
Make barista-quality coffee from the comfort of your kitchen with Breville's One-Touch CoffeeHouse coffee machine. Its large 600 ml milk reservoir is removable for fridge storage when not in use, and its adjustable milk frother allows you to make a variety of different café style drinks. It's got single and double shot espresso filters, and boasts a 19-bar pump to extract robust coffee flavours. This particular model has almost never been cheaper at Amazon.
Nespresso Lattissima Touch by De'Longhi: was
£299 now £199 at John Lewis
John Lewis is currently offering a whopping £100 off Nespresso's high-end Lattissima Touch coffee machine, which is capable of preparing cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos, espressos and hot milk. The same model is out of stock at Amazon at right now, so John Lewis is your best bet this Black Friday – we don't expect it to drop further in price, either.
Nespresso Creatista Plus Coffee Machine by Sage: was
£480 now £280 at Amazon
One of the more premium Nespresso machines, the Nespresso Creatista Plus is sophisticated and slick. It has a steam arm for milk frothing (which is great for latte art, too), and also comes with a steel jug. What's more, if you're a tea drinker, the Creatista Plus can even produce hot water. £200 is a huge saving on the stainless steel version of this premium model for Black Friday.
Breville Barista Max Espresso Machine: was
£449 now £299 at Amazon
Breville's Barista Max coffee machine has never been cheaper in the UK, which is handy, because barista-grade conical burr grinders (of the sort attached to this model) rarely come cheap. This is serious piece of coffee-making machinery (it uses a three-way system to regulate and stabilise water flow, for goodness' sake!), and you can pick one up at Amazon for a lowest-ever price right now.
Nespresso Lattissima Pro Coffee Machine by De'Longhi: was
£449 now £299 at Amazon
Finished in brushed aluminium with LED illumination, the Nespresso Lattissima is a stylish bit of kit. It'll be ready to make coffee in under 25 seconds from start-up, and boasts 6 pre-set beverages, a 19-bar pressure pump and a touchscreen display (because why not?). You'll get De’Longhi’s patented ‘single touch’ milk carafe and frothing system with this one, too, all for the exceptionally attractive price of £299 at Amazon. If stock runs out, head over to Very for the same deal.
De'Longhi La Specialista Barista Pump Espresso Machine: was
£530 now £420 at Amazon
De'Longhi's La Specialista coffee machine is intended for serious coffee aficionados (its name literally translates to The Specialist). With this cafe-grade model, you'll get sensor grinding technology (with grind settings to manage different types of coffee beans), a smart tamping station and even active temperature control, which ensures your coffee is being brewed at the optimal temperature. Sure, £420 is still expensive for a coffee machine – but Amazon's £110 discount is not to be sniffed at given the features on offer here.
Sage Barista Express Espresso Machine: was
£630 now £472 at Amazon
The Sage Barista Express (known as the Breville Barista Express in the US) is our pick for the best mid-range espresso machine money can buy in 2022. In our review, we said the Express is simple to understand and boasts plenty of adjustable settings – and Amazon has discounted it by more than £150 this Black Friday.
De'Longhi Dinamica ECAM Bean to Cup Coffee Machine: was
£799 now £499 at Currys
For all you couples out there (or those who just really love their coffee), the De'Longhi Dinamica ECAM can deliver two espressos simultaneously, and its integrated grinder means you can use fresh beans as well as standard ground coffee. Currys is currently offering this white model for just £500; for comparison, Amazon is selling a similar model for £529. You can also split the price of this purchase into monthly instalments, which should help ease the pain of spending three figures on coffee...
De'Longhi La Specialista Prestigio, Barista Pump Espresso Machine: was
£790 now £509 at Amazon
The premium sibling to De'Longhi's already excellent La Specialista coffee machine – which is also on sale at Amazon right now – the Prestigio features a high pressure steam wand, upgraded grinder, non-pressurised single-wall baskets and dynamic perfusion. If you're serious about your espressos, then you'll know whether those improvements are worth the investment for you – but we think this high-spec model could be further discounted in the weeks to come.
Miele CM 7550 CoffeePassion Coffee Machine: was
£2249 now £1949 at Miele
Admittedly, just under £2000 is ridiculously expensive for a household coffee machine, but if you did so happen to have your eye on any four-figure machines this Black Friday, then now is the right time to make your investment. The Miele CM 7550 CoffeePassion is as high-tech as coffee machines come, and quite frankly we don't have enough writing room to list all the features on offer here: just rest assured that this is the king of bean-roasting equipment (it descales itself, for goodness' sake!).
Buying tips: 3 of the best espresso machines to look for on Black Friday
Reasons to buy
Reasons to avoid
The De'Longhi La Specialista Arte EC9155MB comes with an integrated grinder that can hold 0.55lb / 250g of beans and lets you customize the grind's coarseness from eight levels. We were impressed that the coffee was rich and intense, with a stable crema that reformed when we sprinkled sugar on top. However, we were disappointed there was some dripping once espresso had been brewed and only some components are dishwasher-safe.
Priced at $699.95 / £529.99, we've seen the De'Longhi La Specialista Arte EC9155MB be discounted regularly over the past year, and it's on sale at Amazon in the UK right now for £399.
