These are the most affordable ones you can find.

Coffee machines are awesome because not only to they translate your favorite beans into flavorful brews, but many of them really look good on your kitchen countertop—but while they make for great breakfast nook additions, not everyone has the space for them, especially if you live in a small condo or apartment. 

Enter the humble coffee press: not only are they easy to use, they're also easy to store. Ano ther perk is that there are options that are pretty affordable too: a coffee or French press is more economical than espresso machines and coffee capsule machines. It also does not need electricity, and it does the job of brewing coffee.

All you have to do to use a coffee press is to remove the plunger (a.k.a.the lid with the mesh strainer in the bottom), pour the desired amount of coarse ground coffee into the press, add hot water, and then push down the plusher. Let it steep for a few minutes and you're done! Easy, right?
