There’s nothing like a good cup of coffee in the morning. It’s a skill that takes a bit of time and investment, but can save $1000s a year over going to a coffee shop. Last weekend, I shared a few Instagram stories about an at-home coffee setup. Today I thought I’d share the details full post. These items are a bit of an investment, but you’ll get great espresso without spending investing in a $600 machine. A true win.
For the coffee lover, keep reading for the best setup after the jump!
Our Coffee Setup
Bonavita Variable Temperature Gooseneck Kettle: When it comes to sourcing a kettle, our choice was simple. I wanted a gooseneck kettle that could hold a specific temperature for up to an hour. This allows coffees and teas to properly bloom rather than being scorched by boiling water. (Based on the coffee roast you’re using, the temperature will vary slightly.)
Aeropress Coffee and Espresso Maker: We can’t recommend the Aeropress enough. It’s portable, compact, and makes delicious espresso. By pairing with the Prismo below, it creates a phenomenal vacuum and pressure, lending itself to the head and foam you get on a typical shot. If espresso isn’t your thing, this can also make Americanos and delicious cups of coffee as well.
Manual Conical Burr Mill: The grind and freshness of coffee is just as important as the coffee itself. By using a burr mill you’ll be able to calibrate your grind for your specific application. We love this one due to it’s portable nature and how quiet it is to use. (No worrying about waking up little ones or roommates here!)
Prismo by Fellow Products: When your Aeropress finds it’s forever friend. The Prismo attachment from Fellow products is truly phenomenal. With a metal filter, you’re able to say farewell to the paper filters used typically by an Aeropress and instead find the best espresso your press has ever yielded. At $20, we can’t recommend making this investment enough.
