Cozy up to early Black Friday deals on automatic espresso & heated mugs

All that's missing from this deal is a barista confidante and the adrenaline of finding a table near an outlet.

Colder weather means it’s harder to motivate yourself to leave your house for a fancy coffee drink made by that sweet tattooed barista who complimented your hair last week. Although a machine will never compare to the alluring drink slinger, you can make coffeehouse drinks yourself with this Café Affetto Automatic Espresso Machine, on sale for $399—that’s a whopping 41% off of its $679 usual price.

Get a hot little beverage in 90 seconds at the touch of a button with this espresso machine. Choose from espresso, americano, lungo, My Cup, or hot water options—My Cup is set to ristretto and can be customized to your favorite drink in the SmartHQ app. A built-in bean hopper keeps your beans fresh, and a conical burr grinder gives an even grind from five size options. You even get a nice bloom and even extraction—the captivating, enchanting kind that would even impress that barista, and will certainly entrance any family and/or friends that stop by for the holidays. Go further and wow them with some latte art if you get the model with the attached milk frother.

Like to call, and pull, the shots? The more manual De’Longhi EC9155MB La Specialista Arte Espresso Machine is $499.95, usually $699.95.

Keep that nice coffee drink you made yourself warm with this Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug, on sale for $99.95—down 23% from $129.95. The rechargeable mug itself can keep your beverages warm for 1.5 hours on a full battery, or keep it on its charging base for a hot cuppa all day. Although it comes with an app to control temperature, it’s functional without it—it’s set to 135 degrees out of the box and will remember the last used temperature when on. This mug is a smart cookie, too: it enters sleep mode when empty or after two hours of inactivity, and wakes up when it senses movement or liquid. We included the Ember Travel Mug on our best warm gear gifts list in case you need some additional inspiration for cold friends.

Hurry up and snag these deals before they walk out the door, just like that effortless barista after their morning shift ends.
