Brewing Gear

I always consider quality gear to be a great investment in a morning coffee routine. Whether you're looking to purchase a basic setup or upgrade your daily coffee experience, you'll find my suggested equipment below. Please contact me with any questions.

Regardless of how you brew your coffee, I always recommend a simple food scale!


Single-origin specialty coffee is best when ground just before brewing. Whether you're brewing using a drip machine, pourover, french press, or aeropress, a reliable, consistent grinder is a must. Here are some recommended coffee grinders, at various price points:

 Best for Filter Coffee

Best Budget Grinder

Oxo Brew

Drip Coffee Brewers

A good drip coffee brewer will heat water to an appropriate brewing temperature and will evenly distribute that water over the grounds. If you already have a Keurig, here is a Reusable K-Cup Pod.
