    19 Products For Anyone Whose Most Recent Credit Card Bill Looked Like "Starbucks, Starbucks, Starbucks"

    Because, TBH, your credit card company is def judging you.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An insulated stainless steel travel cup for keeping your hot coffee hot and your cold coffee cold... ya know, the way you intend them to be.

    Amazon

    Can hold up to 30 oz. of liquid. Comes with a stainless steel straw and a straw cleaning brush. It's BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I needed a replacement tumbler and this one caught my eye. Not just because it was 30 oz., but also because it was stainless steel with a metal straw! My old tumbler was plastic, as I am very accident prone, and the thing I disliked most about it was the smell in the tumbler and straw after a day of use. With this new tumbler, not only does it keep my cold drinks cold, but there is no issue with smell like my plastic one. Also, it's even more durable and even larger than my old one. I also love how the straw comes with its own cleaning pipe because otherwise I could see it being a pain to clean. This is the best value and well worth every penny!" —Lord Ogilby

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in three colors).

    2. A cold brew coffee maker to help you whip up a delicious iced coffee treat — pro tip: do it the night before so it has time to chill while you're asleep, and all you have to do in the morning is pour and go.

    Amazon

    It yields about four servings of delicious coffee, features an airtight, leak-proof lid that helps to lock in freshness and flavor, a non-slip silicone handle, and fits in most refrigerator doors. Plus, it's dishwasher-safe and BPA-free.

    Promising review: "Delicious iced coffee! Don’t be fooled by getting an iced coffee at Starbucks and paying almost four bucks. For less than a dollar, you can brew your own cold brew coffee at home. The best part is that cold brew has 60 percent less acid then regular coffee does. So go ahead acid reflux sufferers have that second cup! I used some gourmet beans from a local coffee roaster for $15 and ground them myself. The coffee was far better than Starbucks could ever dream of making. Best of all I get three days worth of coffee for around $2 worth of beans. Pretty amazing." —Robert Klaproth

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    3. A coffee scoop that'll help you get just the right amount of ground coffee for your brewing needs.

    Amazon

    This measures 2 tablespoons and features a long handle. It's made of heavy-duty, durable stainless steel. Reviewers say they have no issue putting this in the dishwasher!

    Get it from Amazon for $7.30.

    4. A three-pack of dairy-free, non-GMO, vegan coffee creamer for giving your coffee a smoother, and, well, creamier taste without all the yucky stuff other creamers tend to contain.

    Amazon

    Just to reiterate — this creamer is carrageenan-, dairy-, soy-, added sugars-free. It's also certified vegan, kosher, gluten-free, non-GMO project certified, and paleo-friendly, as well as Whole30-approved! This variety pack includes original, french vanilla, and hazelnut.

    Promising review: "I was dismayed when my doctor insisted that I go sugar- and dairy-free as I love coffee but cannot drink it without creamer. I searched and searched for a dairy-free alternative but only found the soy, almond, and coconut milk options. YUCK! By chance I came across Nutpods and decided to give it a try. I love this product! It is the creamy texture I want and the flavor I crave. Definite home run, and I vow to never run out." —A. Anson

    Get them from Amazon for $13.95.

    5. A Keurig machine capable of so much more than just single-serve pod brewing — you can also use this baby to concoct delicious lattes, cappuccinos, and coffee shots.

    Amazon

    This of course makes regular coffee like a typical Keurig machine, but can also make concentrated shots from your favorite K-Cup, and lattes and cappuccinos with the included froth, which, BTW, is dishwasher-safe. The water reservoir allows you to brew up to six cups of coffee before needing to be re-filled. Plus, it automatically turns off two hours after the last brew to save energy!

    Promising review: "I am already in love with this machine. It makes an amazing latte. I have been waiting for Keurig to come out with one. We have an espresso machine, but we never use it because it was such a pain to make anything with it. Making a latte is so easy and clean up is a breeze with this new machine. Makes great regular coffee, just like you expect with a Keurig machine." —Sarah Bradshaw

    Get it from Amazon for $159.99 (originally $179.99).

    6. A programmable coffee maker that'll allow you to pick the time your coffee starts brewing up to 24 hours in advance, so you can literally "wake up and smell the coffee."

    Macy's

    As mentioned above, you can program your time up to 24 hours in advance. It has a ready-alert tone to let you know when it's done, has a one-to-four cup option, features a glass carafe with an ergonomic handle, a clear water reservoir for filling accuracy, a gold-tone coffee filter, a charcoal water filter, a brew pause function, and programmable auto-off. Recommended to hand-wash!

    Promising review: "I've only had this coffeepot for about two weeks, but I absolutely love it! I was very pleased with the way it looked in-person. It makes a very good cup of coffee — I wish I would have replaced my old one sooner. It brews quickly and is easy to pour. Also very easy to clean. I would definitely purchase this again!" —HLG2018

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful line, exclusively at Macy's for $99.99 (originally $144.99).

    7. A reusable coffee filter for putting an end to wasteful paper filters — both your wallet and the planet are gonna be so thankful for your greener contributions.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "My coffee tastes so much better with this filter. It is true that with a filter that's not made of paper the coffee is not as bitter. When I used paper filters my coffee tasted like wet cigarette butts, but after using this filter I can taste the real flavor in the coffee, and it is smooth and delicious. Plus, I am keeping paper filters out of the landfills, and saving money not buying filters anymore." —Slumberingdragon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    8. And, if you're more of a single-pod kinda person, a four-pack of reusable pods you can fill with your favorite ground coffee, pop into your machine, and then be on your merry little way.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have used many different cups like this over the years of owning a Keurig. This one by far takes the gold, works very well, and is super easy to clean. I will be purchasing more when they wear out!" —Nicholas A. Raviele

    Get them from Amazon for $9.95.

    9. And, and, and*** a three-pack of Starbucks ground coffee, so you can actually make the coffee you're craving without dropping $5 on a single cup.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $22.29.

    10. A coffee grinder that'll make the job of grinding up beans so quick and easy, and maybe even, kinda fun? And hey, when you're not using this for coffee, you can use this for spices!

    Amazon

    Features a 200-watt motor for fast bean grinding. It can grind up to 3 oz. of beans in a matter of seconds and yield up to 12 cups of coffee. It can also grind spices and nuts! If you need a little more convincing, check out a BuzzFeeder's review!

    Promising review: "He works so hard for such a little guy. I use my Krups grinder for grinding spices and coffee, (I go through with a chopstick to loosen up the stragglers hanging on to the edge of the walls and also grind a piece of bread that cleans up the smells and excess grindings hanging about.) That being said, I find it great for people like me who just do single cups of coffee in a Keurig. It does blend a bit on the fine side, so sometimes you need to line the custom cups with a little paper to prevent sludge from happening. It's definitely a great blender for the price and it's size!" —Lisa Bee

    Get it from Amazon for $18.94 (originally $29.99).

    11. A stovetop espresso maker that looks like a fancy schmancy antique find, but actually yields rich, flavorful espresso in under five minutes!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "So happy with my espresso pot purchase. Excellent and simple. It makes the best coffee ever. It's streamlined, sleek, and attractive sitting next the stove without cluttering up counter space with some electronic digital nightmare to deal with. It's a breeze to clean — no disposable filters either. Everyone who drinks coffee needs this." —melanie m. pool

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (originally $13).

    12. A storage canister to preserve the freshness of your favorite coffee beans/blend — you can also buy these to store other things like sugar!

    Amazon

    Canister is made of BPA-free plastic, resists odors and stains, and is dishwasher-safe!

    Get it from Amazon for $9.17+ (available in five sizes).

    13. A bag of Death Wish coffee that'll fulfill your need for caffeine faster than regular coffee can — if you usually rely on multiple cups a day, this can get the job done in a cup or two.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Ok folks, words of warning, ration out your coffee. If you drink a 24 oz. Starbucks, you need an 8 oz. of this as your FIRST cup. I'm serious here, heed my warning or you could end up cleaning your entire house, doing all your yard work, making love to your partner, waxing your car, building a garage, or single-handedly raising the Titanic on your own, all in the first hour after drinking this wonderful coffee. You have been warned." —ItsTheXFactor

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    14. A pour-over glass coffeemaker to make the simplest, easiest cup of coffee while basically making your living space feel like a hipster Brooklyn coffee shop.

    amazon.com

    Made of non-porous Borosilicate glass that won't absorb odors or chemical residues. It allows your coffee to be covered and refrigerated for re-heating without losing its flavor.

    Promising review: "This has totally transformed my coffee drinking. I absolutely love the flavor of this without the mess of the French Press. Takes a few minutes to make, but totally worth it. Have served coffee from it to guests and they all remark about the flavor! Just remember to pick it up by the wood handle, especially if you are keeping it warm on a burner. If you love good coffee, this is the way to make it!" —Stephen Mundt

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in two sizes).

    15. A 15-pack of Starbucks frappuccino drinks that'll spare you from having to prepare your own coffee at all, if that's really not your thing, while also sparing you having to wait on the line at the Starbucks drive-thru. Because let's be real, we know that's not your thing either.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $21.19 (available in six varieties).

    16. A handheld milk frother because sometimes, just plain coffee won't do it for ya. You need a latte and you need it PRONTO!

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Requires two AA batteries.

    Promising review: "The PowerLix has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes like Starbucks at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milks (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths non-dairy milks. I can't tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. The only other option for at-home milk frothing would have involved spending a grand on a fancy espresso machine with a steam wand, but I think the PowerLix works even better at making beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there's still foam even in the last sip. I couldn't go back to just coffee and cream after having tried a perfect lattes made by the PowerLix." —Lindsey Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    17. A 10-pack of mushroom coffee that claims to help with focus, creativity, and your immune system — and don't worry, it doesn't actually taste like mushrooms. It's just a little more mild tasting than regular coffee.

    Amazon

    All you have to do is add to hot water!

    Promising review: "I have no idea if there will legitimately be any real benefits to ingesting these 'super-'mushrooms in my coffee, but what I do know is this: They taste good, and they leave me less jittery than regular coffee. That could be just the result of drinking slightly less coffee in my coffee, but either way, it satisfies my craving for coffee and it tastes good." —Kate O'Neill

    Get it from Amazon for $10.35.

    18. A super cool color-changing mug that'll look pretty darn grumpy until it's filled with coffee. MOOD.

    Amazon

    FYI, this isn't microwave-, dishwasher-, or oven-safe, so please wash it by hand, and don't try to warm up your coffee in this mug!

    Get it from Amazon for $13.89+ (available in two colors).

    19. And last, but certainly not least, a Starbucks tumbler set complete with two tumblers and two instant coffee packets, so you can feel as if your drink was just handed to you by your favorite barista, without feeling like you spent half of your paycheck on Starbucks AGAIN this month.

    Amazon

    Get them from Amazon for $23.99.

    Think of all the money you're about to save by making your own coffee!
