When it covers Amazon First day, there are several things you need, and at the top of the list is coffee. Few things in life are better than the smell of fresh coffee in the morning (or at 3 am ET). We love the coffee here at WIRED. We wrote about it coffee robot, ground beans, portable espresso machines, as well rough French presses, and, honestly, u the list is endless. The good news? Many of our favorite coffee gadgets and accessories are on sale for Amazon Prime Day, and we rounded them.
Be sure to read ours guide to making better coffee at home before preparing your first cup. You can get the most fantastic machine in the world, but the most important thing you can do is use fresh beans. If you don’t even have a local place to pick fresh beans, we have a summary of our favorite coffee subscription services which can deliver a freshly roasted coffee to your door. We list one of these subscription services below.
WIRED Prime Day Stories
If you are traveling
Clip the coupon on the page to see the discount at checkout. Do you prefer sweet coffee over stronger infusions? This is the best portable coffee machine for the task. It is a vacuum press brazier. Just fill the chamber with coffee and the insulated carafe with water, then drop the chamber into water and wait for it to settle to the bottom. When the air bubbles disappear, twist the fermentation mechanism, and you will find a fresh coffee placed at the bottom, which also serves as a cup. This video gives you a good idea of how it works.
Here is another one large portable coffee machine, particularly if you prefer to use a French print. This is the lightest and simplest of all the French presses that our reviewer Scott Gilbertson has tested, and it produces the minimum amount of sediment so that it is not left with an unbridled taste. It’s double-walled and vacuum-insulated, so it will keep your drinks hot or cold for a few hours.
The wide mouth of this 16-ounce travel mug allows you to enjoy the look and smell of your coffee while drinking. The interior is covered in ceramic, so you don’t have to deal with that metallic aftertaste, and the opaque exterior holds up well. It’s proof of loss, even if it might not fit into most car cups. The 8-ounce version is too on sale for $ 22 ($ 6 off).
Yes you are at home
This counter brewery (9/10, WIRED Recommends) can make up to eight cups of coffee. Add water on top, your coffee in the basket, and it will soon reach the carafe. It will be done at the right temperature for the right time, and if you only want to make one cup, there is a side drip accessory that will do the job.
You crave precision
It’s not the most portable espresso machine (it’s too heavy), but it has produced some of the best extracts of all. portable espresso machines we tried. It’s simple to use – just follow the instructions in this video from the company — easy to clean, and allows for good experimentation.
The preparation of an excellent cup of coffee is reduced to precision. You need to hit the right water temperature, volume, bean quality, grinding size and soil weight. This Oxo grinder takes care of the last two points since it has an integrated scale. Set the grinding size, choose the weight, and you’re done. It will turn off when it is finished. There is a reason why it is in ours The best roundup of Macinacaffè.
Do you already have a grinder? A standard kitchen scale like this works. It is water resistant, and the four high-precision charge sensors are accurate to 0.1 ounce increments. It can weigh anything between 0.1 ounces to 22 pounds.
Yes You Love the Cold Brew
Do you prefer your coffee cold? This is ours preferred cold coffee machine. Make about 32 ounces of coffee at a time. All you have to do is put coarse flour in the basket, and slowly pour water over it. Then let stand at room temperature or refrigerate for 24 hours, and enough. The director of WIRED magazines, Jeffrey Van Camp, says the resulting coffee is “smooth and tasty without too much bitterness” or sediment.
Making cold infusions using a French press does not often produce good results, as Jeffrey Van Camp discovered. But Secura has been well suited for this, giving it a rich taste. It might even be a little bitter and gritty, so Primrose on top is the way to go for the best cold infusion results, but Secura is still a great option if you want to make hot coffee in French print and cold infusion.
If you need speed
The availability of this Keurig is fluctuating on Amazon, but that’s it also at Target for $ 170 ($ 20 discount). Keurigs gets a bad rap in the coffee world, but not without a good reason. Single-use K-Cups are bad for the environment, and the coffee itself usually doesn’t taste so good. But they are simple to use and fast. We really like the K-Café (8/10, WIRED Recommends), which still takes K-Cups, but the integrated automatic milk foam greatly facilitates the manufacture of a milk or cappuccino.
This compact car is the only one in this roundup that we haven’t tested, but the low price is too tempting not to include. Plus, it looks great! Pop into a K-Cup and shoot a 6 or 12 ounce cup in no time.
If you want a Keurig option that can also make iced coffee, try it K-Elite, which is on sale for $ 130 ($ 40 off) on Target.
If You Only Need Better Beans
One of the first steps you need to take when growing your coffee set is to use fresh coffee beans. You can look for local toasters, or use one coffee subscription service to get fresh roasted beans at your door. Commerce is our preferred service because of its variety: it brings you beans from boutique roasters in the United States. You can fill out a questionnaire to find the correct bean type, and it also offers decaf. This promotion is not new, but you get 30 percent off your first bag. A subscription usually costs $ 12 for a 12-ounce bag per month.
