I would like to get Mr. BlahLaLa a new coffee maker. Bonus difficulty: I don't drink coffee.

Help me help my man get his dose of caffeine. Here are the requirements:
-- Takes "regular" coffee. We were gifted a Nespresso machine and though Mr. BlahLaLa loves it, two years in I'm becoming increasingly annoyed at how expensive the pods are.
-- A smallish machine. He generally only needs 1 cup. Maybe 2, max. And our kitchen is tiny. I do have counterspace being taken up by the Nespresso right now, though, so I could swap it for a new coffee machine.
-- Easy to clean. This was the best part about the Nespresso -- meaning, there's basically nothing to clean. I get that it won't be that easy with a regular coffee maker, but since I'm probably the one who'll have to clean it, I want it to be easy.
-- Bonus if it's programmable. Mr. BlahLaLa has to get up by 5am most mornings and it would be lovely to have a cup of coffee awaiting him.
-- Bonus if it's on Amazon Prime
-- Hit me with any unknown unknowns I might be missing because I'm not a coffee drinker.
I have seen some previous questions with varying requirements. Because I'm such a non-coffee drinker and thus am ignorant about so much of this, I decided to ask fresh with my specific requirements.
