Black Friday coffee machine deals 2020 | Russell Hobbs, Swan
Known for its discounts across major retailers, Black Friday is a great time to pick up kitchen appliances such as coffee machines for a lower price. We’ve tested a range of models from trusted brands to bring you our picks of the best coffee machines on the market.
If you’re after convenience, coffee pod machines use capsules and save on time and effort. A drawback lies in the limited recycling opportunities for caps, although brands like Nespresso do have programs in place. If environmentally friendly packaging options are a priority, look for recyclable and compostable pods.
For those looking to build their barista skills or simply enjoy the bean-to-brew process, an espresso machine will offer the opportunity to personalise your coffee and produce the perfect crema.
Coffee pod and espresso machines vary dramatically in price, so it’s best to weigh up which functions you may want in advance. Some, such as the Lavazza A Modo Mio Deséa coffee machine allow you to simply select your favourites, while models like the more sophisticated Sage by Heston The Barista Express offer a whole array of features.
We advise doing the research in advance because Black Friday can get overwhelming and it’s easy to spend money on the wrong thing, or something you don’t need.
To give you a head start, our full guide to the best coffee machines runs through everything you need to know. And once you’ve decided on the coffee machine for you, check back here. We’ll be updating this page regularly with the best deals we can find on our tried-and-tested favourite coffee machines. Like the Flair Signature espresso maker, a human-powered gadget with espresso quality that rivals its electric counterparts, or the Swan SK22110CN espresso machine, now £89 down from £99 at AO.com.

When is Black Friday 2020?

Over the last few years we’ve seen offers start earlier and earlier, with some launched up to a week in advance of Black Friday, so keep an eye out for discounts ahead of Black Friday itself.
