Grounds for Savings: Coffee Deals on Espresso Machines, K-Cups, and more

By , dealnews contributor

No matter whether you call it — java, joe, coffee, or magic beans — sip on this: We spend $18 billion a year on specialty coffees, according to Statistic Brain. Why not spend some of that money on a new espresso machine and/or a bunch of K-cups? Plus, all these caffeinated deals are surely the pick-me-ups we all need to get through the first Friday of summer.

  1. Rancilio Silvia V3 Espresso Machine bundled with a JL Hufford 1-lb. Espresso Blend Coffee Whole Bean Pack and a JL Hufford $40 Gift Card
    Store: JL Hufford
    Price: $575.10 via coupon code "italy10" with free shipping
    Lowest By: $94

    Is It Worth It?: For those who like their coffee bold, and their Editors' Choice deals bolder, here's a fabulous find on a prime espresso machine. Modeled on the commercial espresso machines made by Rancilio, this high-end machine features a brass boiler, multi-directional commercial grade steam wand, single hole milk frothing tip, filter handle, and a steam knob. Plus you'll get beans to get you started, and a $40 gift card to keep them in stock.

    Store: aSavings via newegg
    Price: $69.99 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $30

    Is It Worth It?: For those shopping for a trusty espresso machine in the under-$100 category, here's Editors' Choice action on a refurbished unit. Available in Stainless Steel, this machine features a 46-oz. removable water container, indicator lights, two sieves, and swivel frother. You supply whipped cream, fancy cups, and coffee shop trappings! Note that no warranty information is provided.

  3. 2 Gevalia K-Cups Coffee 12-Packs
    Store: Gevalia
    Price: $8.49 via coupon code "TRYGEV82" with free shipping
    Lowest By: $15

    Is It Worth It?: If you love traditional coffee and are not into all that fancy grind stuff, this 2-pack of Gevalia coffee priced at the cost of just one, is likely more your speed. You'll save $15 and get a deal that ties our mention from last week as the strongest offer we've seen on boxes of coffee from Gevalia in recent weeks.

  4. Gevalia Single-Serve K-Cup sample or Ground Coffee Sample
    Store: Walmart
    Price: Free when you create an eCard

    Is It Worth It?: This drink is on us, and the folks at Walmart! To create your card, you'll need to choose a humorous phrase, such as "Who needs wings? Coffee gives me a turbo jet pack." Make sure to have your morning cup first, or your sense of humor may get trumped by the grumpies. Expect your free Gevalia coffee sample to arrive in four weeks.

  5. Sam's Natural Coffee Lip Balm
    Store: west elm
    Price: $2.49 with free shipping
    Lowest By: $6

    Is It Worth It?: You want the taste of coffee on your lips all day long, but drinking 37 cups will definitely give you the jitters. What to do? Get this lip balm made with coconut oil, sweet almond oil, and vitamin E. So far as we can tell, it's decaffeinated, but if you want to pop a few chocolate-covered espresso beans while blaming your lips, we won't tell.
