If you're trying to save money (or calories), cutting out those daily trips to the coffee shop can help. Giving up caffeine altogether isn't necessary, though. And you don't have to stop treating yourself to venti caramel macchiatos with extra whipped cream — but you might be surprised to see what kind of coffeehouse creations you can make at home. Check out our roundup of the week's best small appliance deals to find (almost) everything you need.
