Coffee Gear

It's easy to pick up a new piece of coffee gear, only to find something better shortly thereafter. So, I've pulled together a list of the best coffee gear on the market so you can view it in one spot. Check it out!

When you find something enjoyable, it’s normal to buy all of the related accessories that will enhance your experience. For coffee lovers, it doesn’t take long to amass a collection of practical coffee gear … or at least a wishlist of items so you can space out your purchases.

I started this droolworthy coffee gear page to help everyone know what’s out there. And I’ll admit, it also gives me a place to talk more about all of the tools and gadgets I love!

Coffee Gear Overview

Whether you’ve recently upgraded your coffee maker or just purchased a shiny new super automatic espresso machine, you’ve probably quickly realized that a few accessories are absolutely necessary. After all, the goal of coffee, in the first place, is to make our lives better.

So, why not pick up come functional coffee gear to sweeten the deal!?!

Let’s take a look at some possibilities.

Coffee Canisters

Those of you who know me know that I’m always emphasizing the importance of using fresh ground coffee beans in the brewing process. This is, by far, the number one way to improve the quality of what’s in your coffee cup. The challenge, of-course, is how to store coffee beans in a way that will prevent degredation. For this reason, I’ve written a few articles that will help you decide which coffee canisters to go with.

My article on choosing the best coffee storage container compares 15 different coffee canisters. In it, we take a look at plastic, ceramic, and stainless steel storage containers. We also venture into the world of decorative farmhouse canisters that are both attractive and practical.

In my Airscape Coffee Canister Review 2023 we do a deep dive with Airscape, which I hold to be among the best brands.

Coffee Scales

Coffee scales are another useful tool that will help with incorporating whole coffee beans into your day. My Complete Coffee Scale Guide offers practical advice about what to look for in a coffee scale.

Using a coffee scale is super easy, so don’t be intimidated if you’ve never used one before. You can learn the ropes in minutes.

Coffee Grinders

Another important aspect of the coffee brewing process is selecting a grinder that matches your brewing method or methods. Many grinders, for example, are well suited for the coarse grind required for French press coffee, but can’t create a consistently fine grind for espresso. The inverse is also true at times.

If you check out my Best Coffee Grinders of 2022 guide, I go into great depth about both manual and electric grinders. Fifteen different options are discussed on the page.

There, you’ll also find links to specific reviews such as the manual Comandante grinder or electric Baratza Encore. I talk about the pros and cons of various options. It’s a great coffee gear resource page!

Coffee Filters

Pour over and drip coffee maker fans are always interested in options for coffee filters, which makes sense since they use them every single day! So, I’ve put together a thorough guide on coffee filters that explores the options for a variety of brewing methods. Chemex, Hario, Kalita Wave … you name it! There’s a lot of helpful info waiting for you there.

In wanting to challenge the coffee drinking world to be more environmentally friendly, my post of the Top 5 Reusable K Cups presents several options that will help reduce single use plastic waste.

Stovetop Water Kettles

Pour over fans will be interested to check out Best Stovetop Water Kettle. We look at why the gooseneck reigns supreme. The information there will give you all the ammo you’ll need to convince your spouse that spending another $50-$200 this week really makes sense. Wink! Wink!

In reality though, the article is a survey of 11 different types of kettles and goes into detail about the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Coffee Mugs

Our love of coffee doesn’t stop when we cross the threshold of our homes. So, I did some research and came up with the 10 Best Insulated Coffee Mugs. The article looks at some of the top coffee gear for taking your joe on the go.

As promised, I’ve just posted a list of the 10 best demitasse cups for espresso as well. I got into detail about which materials make the best espresso cups. There’s also a variety of individual cups and sets for your consideration.

Cleaning and Descaling

This is a topic the people wish I’d shut up about, but I can’t … hygiene is just too important to overlook! My post on cleaning and descaling products will be updated soon. The idea here is to provide you with the best information about coffee gear that will help you keep your espresso machine or drip coffee maker in optimal working condition.
