6. An affordable single-serve espresso maker for fancy coffee
If your mom loves fancy coffee, then she would definitely appreciate her own espresso machine. The Nespresso Essenza Mini is the best affordable single-serve espresso machine we’ve ever tested and right now it’s even more affordable with a $30 discount in the colors black and lime. We loved this device because you get the same incredible cup of coffee as the more expensive models, but it just doesn’t hold as much water as the larger models and you’ll have to empty the used capsule holder more frequently. Not a big deal for big savings, in our opinion.
