Rost Coffee Roaster

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. While the Rost Coffee Roaster can’t handle bulk amounts of coffee beans (much like these coffee makers) at once it excels at roasting many small, 100 gram sample batches to try out different roasts. It works by first choosing a profile from a predetermined list of auto settings (that account for ambient temperates and the like) — or just setting it…

Elektra Micro Casa Leva S1 Espresso Machine

While it’s not the smallest machine to brew you a cup of espresso in spite of its name (for that look to Nomad or >Handpresso), the Elektra Micro Casa Leva S1 Espresso Machine certainly delivers in brew quality, not to mention serves as a veritable ornament for your kitchen. The machine is devoid of an electric pump but makes up for quantity with quality; instead, a lever just like those in the earliest…

Clr Cff Clear Coffee

Worried about the long term tooth-staining effects of drinking tons of coffee? Clr Cff Colorless Coffee spares you the need for whitening strips. While still brewed using quality Arabica beans and water, Clr Cff ends up quite a bit less opaque than typical coffee, though not quite as clear as water itself. How, you ask? We don’t really know yet, and the team behind the beverage offers little in terms of…

Black Insomnia Coffee

Got ungodly amounts of work to do? Caffeine is key, and in that respect Black Insomnia Coffee sure isn’t lacking. Every normal 12 oz cup brewed with these beans (or grounds, or Nespresso capsules) contains a minimum caffeine content of 702mg  — or about two and a half to three times more than a comparably sized cup of Starbucks drip coffee — making sleep but a distant memory. The taste…

KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker

Summer’s fast coming. One thing that means for coffee addicts is switching to (or at least mixing in) refreshing cold brew coffee in lieu of its piping hot counterpart. And the KitchenAid Cold Brew Coffee Maker handles both making and serving cold brew admirably. The space-saving cube-shaped coffee maker features a reusable stainless steel steeper that’s labelled with a fill level indicator for no-fuss brewing and a 28 oz capacity, making 14 portions of…

Jul Heated Smart Mug

Like the Ember temperature adjustable mug before it, Power Practical’s Jul Heated Smart Mug is godsend for those who like to nurse their coffee or tea, albeit with a stark price drop that comes with ditching the batteries. The goal when drinking coffee/tea is simple: get your drink down to a reasonable temperature quickly but have it stay there longer — or even indefinitely. Jul does so by shedding the excess…

La Marzocco Home Espresso Subscription

Coffee aficionados have all likely enjoyed their share of espressos brewed from a La Marzocco machine. Some may even have visited their cafe/lab in Seattle. But even the best machine used by a skilled barista won’t make an excellent cup without good beans suited to your taste to begin with. That’s why La Marzocco’s Home Espresso Subscription wants to help you discover coffees you’d otherwise never stumble upon in your neck of the woods….

Halo Kopi Luwak Diamond Coffee Pods

You may have already heard of Kopi Luwak, the rarest (and priciest) coffee in the world — you know, the one made from half-digested coffee cherries found in harvested palm civet excrement. It may sound disgusting but it’s not quite the case as they’re cleaned before roasting. Not that we’ve tried it ourselves but the end result is apparently quite good, and now it’s coming to your Nespresso machine in…

Technivorm Moccamaster

Manual methods are coveted for making the best coffee, but auto-drip has its perks, especially when brewed up by a Technivorm Moccamaster KBG 741 coffee machine. Fill its clear reservoir with water, pop in a Type 4 paper filter and some grounds on top, then set it to work. It’ll brew up a carafe of 10 cups in six minutes and does so with obsessive temperature controls in place (with temps…

Kruve Coffee Grind Sifter

Obsessed with the consistency of your grinds? You’ll likely appreciate the Kruve Coffee Grind Sifter. Kruve doesn’t replace your existing coffee grinder: instead, once the beans are done grinding, pour them into Kruve, close its lid, and shake gently side to side. The first sieve in the triangular device traps boulders (large particles) while the second, finer sieve lets through fines (powder-like particles) — both which otherwise adversely affect the taste of your brew…

Brewing a coffee with a Nespresso machine is quick and convenient, but we can’t help but feel a little guilty every time we down an espresso shot after adding another pod to the trash. Colonna’s Compostable Coffee Pods ease feelings of wrongdoing by turning, as their name suggests, into compost in your home’s composter after use, sparing landfills.

Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it won’t brew great coffee. The Brux Pour-Over Coffee System doubles as both the vessel and brewer, with a vacuum-insulated mug as its base that contains a retractible brew cone for portability. To brew, pull up the brew cone, add a filter plus ground coffee, pour over some boiling water, then remove the cone and drink — all in all no different in function than…

Jack Daniel’s Coffee

It won’t get you tipsy but Jack Daniel’s Coffee will get you up and at ’em in the morning with a hint of whiskey taste. This blend of medium-roasted Arabica gourmet coffee goes through an infusion process with actual Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey. While no alcohol actually reaches your mug after brewing (none was left in the beans, anyway, though nothing’s stopping you from spiking the coffee itself with a bit…

Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle

Fellow’s original Stagg Pour-Over Kettle had a precise thermometer up top so you’d know when its water was at the right temperature. The Stagg EKG Electric Pour-Over Kettle, on the other hand, takes care of for you thanks to a base that heats it up to exactly the temperature you’ve set. This is accomplished through the use of an intuitive twist dial on the right side that then pushes down to…

Blue Bottle Coffee Dripper

It’s not just a nice looking coffee-making device. The Blue Bottle Coffee Dripper took a lot more effort to design and build than its minimal facade would have you think, with a small team of engineers and scientists working on a better pour-over device through 70 iterations. Notable design elements include forty interior ridges that pull coffee downward by capillary action, a flat bed for uniform extraction, and a…

Arctic Cold Brewer

Cold brewing rids coffee of its acidity and bitterness. More than that though the Arctic Cold Brewer also wants to rid you of the need to brew up fresh coffee every day. Fill Arctic’s micron filter with ten to fifteen tablespoons of coffee, submerge the grounds in cold filtered water, cap it, then place the whole borosilicate carafe in your fridge overnight. The next day you’re left with about 50 ounces of…

Its name — Spinn — insinuates what lies within the machine: a centrifugal brewing core varies in speed between 500 and 6,000 rpm depending on the selection of coffee and during the…

A good pour-over dripper doesn’t absolutely require a stand, but for a few extra bucks, why not?
