Amazon isn't waiting for its Prime Day sales to offer huge discounts, and if you want a top-tier coffee maker for much less cash, there's a brilliant deal on offer right now.

The Breville Barista Touch Espresso Machine is currently down from the usual $999.95 to a much more affordable $799.95, Which is a 20% savings.

That's a really good price for one of the best espresso machines around. Looking at the price history, it rarely goes so low, and even with heavy discounting, you'd normally expect to pay well over $850.

Breville's Barista Touch espresso machines frequently top our Best Coffee Makers chart. The only real negative is that they can be very expensive. So this deal is very welcome, saving a whopping $200 off the usual price.

Breville Barista Touch espresso machine: key features

The Barista Touch coffee maker is the best of both worlds: You can customize your coffee to control every aspect of the brewing process or use the intuitive touch screen to have it do all that for you. It has 9 bar extraction pressure, automatic grinding and dosing, and a feature Breville calls Auto MilQ to create silky microfoam for luxurious lattes and other milky drinks.

When we reviewed its slightly more expensive sibling, the Barista Touch Impress, we gave it five stars: it's "a stunning coffee machine that stands out for its touch screen and ability to froth different types of milk."

If you need your coffee fix in a hurry, the Barista Touch only takes 3 seconds to warm up from a cold start – and because the grinder is built-in, you don't need to do any pre-grinding. The lack of a milk reservoir is a plus rather than a minus as far as we're concerned: we find that with milk reservoirs, we often end up wasting a lot of milk, and the reservoirs themselves can be tricky to clean. 

This is as easy to clean as it is to use, and provided you use decent-quality beans, you'll consistently create wonderful coffee every single time.

Coffee maker deals

If you're a fan of great coffee but don't think this is the right machine for you, we expect to see many more deals among the Amazon Prime Day coffee maker deals we'll cover July 16 - 17. 

Amazon always offers good deals on coffee machines from various brands in the Amazon Prime Day sale, and this year shouldn't be any different.
