Amazon Prime Day has finally arrived, and that means we have to agree on almost everything.

The Breville Barista Express is one of our top picks for premium espresso machines that include a built-in grinder. It’s worn out, but it does everything. It includes a grinder for the fine, consistent grind you need for great espresso and pairs it with renowned Breville build quality. This machine is built like a tank. The exterior is made of stainless steel, the knobs and buttons are solid and durable. It’s like a Cuisinart stand-alone espresso machine mixer, expensive but built to last.
Sometimes you just need a plain old automatic coffee maker, and one of our favorites is the Hamilton Beach 2-Way. It’s a standard coffee maker, but it includes a secondary spout for making one cup of coffee (and even fits most travel mugs, so you can put your cup in there the night before work). It’s well made for the price and makes good coffee, with no bells and whistles.
Cuisinart’s programmable coffee maker is another good option if you’re looking for a solid everyday starter for brewing a standard cup of coffee. The automatic functions work great, making it super easy to do all the setup the night before. One of my favorite things about coffee makers like these is the way they fill your house with the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The automatic timer means you’ll wake up to that scent every morning.
Until not technically espresso machine, since it does not produce a pressure of up to 15 bar during brewing, Bialetti’s Moka pots brew a powerful cup of coffee that can be compared to an espresso. Since it’s a cooking percolator, it doesn’t need power to operate, making it a good choice for camping.
Chances are you’ve seen these teapots sitting on the counter at your favorite coffee shop. Fellow’s Stagg EKG Electric Kettle has a long, narrow neck for precise control when making pourover coffee, but it’s also a great everyday electric kettle and looks great on almost any work surface.
It’s easy to think that you’ll never need a handheld milk frother, but let me tell you, it’s a great kitchen tool to have on hand. Not only can it quickly whip everyday milk into a creamy foam, but it’s also great for whipping cream, mixing cocktails and more.
Following in the footsteps of its namesake, the Instant Pot Milk Frother is actually a multi-functional device that can heat, steam, froth or whisk your milk to almost any consistency you can imagine. It’s also a cute little desktop device that fits nicely with any coffee maker.
For Cold Brew
This is one of our favorite cold brewers. It can make up to 32 ounces of coffee at a time, all you have to do is pour the coarse grounds into a small basket, pour some cold water over it and put it all in the fridge for about 24 hours. Cold brew machines are lifesavers during heat waves, especially because you can stock up before the heat really hits.
Some big beans
Atlas Coffee Club is on our list of the best coffee subscriptions, and for good reason. Not only does an Atlas Coffee subscription make it easy to keep your home well stocked with freshly roasted coffee beans, but depending on which options you choose at checkout, you can get all sorts of different coffees delivered straight to your door. In our opinion, the best way to find the best coffee for you is all about trying a bunch of different coffees, and Atlas makes it super easy and affordable.
