I'm a coffee addict (who isn't?) so I like to make sure I've got a good cuppa to get me going first thing in the morning, and therefore a good coffee machine is essential.

I'm due an upgrade, and lucky for me, Amazon Prime Day 2021 is in full swing, meaning there are deals to be had across everything from beauty products to Fitbits and Levi's jeans. And of course, coffee machines.

To take part in the sale, you need to sign up for an Amazon Prime Day account using the link below, or login if you already have one, and the discounts will magically appear.

The best deal I've found this year is on a Nespresso Vertuoso Plus coffee machine, which is a quite astounding 62% off. It would normally be £179.99, but it can be yours for just £68.99, today only (the sale ends at 23:59 tonight).

The red machine is the one with the highest discount, but if you're more of a classic person, then you'll be pleased to hear the black one has a decent 50% off.

Now some coffee snobs might say that capsules aren't as good as fresh coffee drains, but I call BS. Having been drinking these for the past few years, I can assure you they taste just as good, if not better.

Plus you get to taste different coffee pods to mix things up a bit, and you can order some funky flavours too like caramel and vanilla if that's your thing.

Sold? Thought you might be. Treat yourself today and I'll see you at the next caffeine addicts anonymous meeting.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
