Best coffee maker deals 2024 – what to shop this Memorial Day

The Memorial Day sales have started. There are tempting discounts on offer but not every single one is worth jumping on. Luckily for you, I've been watching the prices of every coffee maker for months, so I'll let you know which are worth snapping up.

As a former barista and H&G's coffee expert, I spend my days thinking about coffee, testing coffee makers, and looking for the best coffee maker deals. When big sales events, such as Memorial Day come around, you want to be prepared with all the information you need to snag a saving. 

This Memorial Day, my priority is finding a deal on the best drip coffee makers around. They're just so useful to have in your home. Whilst searching for filter coffee maker savings, I've seen some astounding discounts on our experts' favorite bean-to-cup machines, some of the best single-serve coffee makers, and luxury espresso machines which, now that they're reduced, are reasonably priced.

I'll let you know where you need to move quickly to secure a saving as well as where it's worth waiting for a little longer. We've got some a month of May(hem) ahead of us, so I've curated this comprehensive list of the best coffee maker deals on offer, right now.

We've curated the best coffee maker deals for every brewing style. From filter to espresso, these will give you your caffeine fix for less.

Filter coffee is the nation's favorite brewing style, so it's important that the best drip coffee makers are the creme de la creme(a). We've tested all of these and think they're up to the standards of the best baristas' palettes.

Bean-to-cup coffee maker deals

The beauty of bean-to-cup machines, also known as automatic coffee makers, is that they make everything simple. All you need to do is add milk, water, and beans, and you'll have perfect coffee every time. However, the market average for these sits at around $1000, so it's always worth looking for a discount. 

Single-serve coffee maker deals

If you can save on single-serve coffee makers, you're winning on all fronts. The capsule coffee machines below make speedy coffee and they're tested (and approved) by experts. 

Espresso machine deals

If you can snag an espresso machine deal, you'll be the envy of all your coffee-enthusiast friends. These technical coffee makers are some of the most coveted around. They're only expensive if you don't shop in the sales.

Pour-over deals

Pure pour-over coffee is delicate and delicious. Most of these coffee makers are relatively inexpensive, so when there's a sale on, it would be rude not to cover them. If you want good coffee without breaking the bank, these are your best options.

Best French press coffee maker deals

French presses might not be at the front of your mind when looking for coffee maker deals, but they should be. The best French presses I've tested sit comfortably in triple-figure prices. If you can snag one for under $100, don't hesitate to take the plunge (sorry).

Best moka pot deals

The best moka pots can take you close to espresso machine coffee flavors, for a fraction of the price. Bialetti tends to dominate the market here, so if you can pick up one of their iconic models for a saving, you can sip back and relax.

Best cold brew coffee maker deals

If you've been making your cold brew coffee in a plastic bottle or a simple French press, now is the time to complete your cold brew set-up. These cold brew systems are inexpensive, especially in the sales, and they'll change the way you enjoy your cold brew. There's no need to struggle with make-do brewers anymore.

Where to shop coffee maker deals

If you've got some time and you want to scroll the coffee maker sales, these are the places to start. A word of caution: not every deal is a good deal, so always cross-check the coffee maker you've found with some expert reviews.

How we test coffee makers

At Homes & Gardens, we take our coffee maker tests seriously. Before we feature them or recommend you buy them, each machine will have been tested by our experts and compared to models from top brands like Breville, Nespresso, and Technivorm.

Where possible, we test how a coffee machine fares on making espresso, Americano, and cappuccino. This lets us see the range that a coffee maker has, across milky coffee as well as more intense and flavorful shots. However, if a coffee maker claims to be able to make a vast menu of different coffees, we'll test them all and let you know about them in our 'special features' section. We make sure to use the same coffee beans in each test, so that we can compare how well the flavors and aromas of the coffee has been extracted. If a machine can froth milk, we will test non-dairy milks too, as these can be temperamental.

We'll make notes on everything from aesthetics to cleaning and maintenance, so that you can get a holistic idea of what these machines are like to live with before you invest in them. If you'd like to find out more, you can visit our dedicated page for how we test coffee makers.
