In What's Brewing, we talk about all things coffee for its omnipresence as a cure for Monday blues, a social lubricant for the socially awkward, and a passion for the barista. Here we highlight five essentials for a seamless home coffee-making experience.
Snow Peak Measuring Spoon
Snow Peak's measuring spoon is the spoon for all, be it for indoor or outdoor cooking. Shaped like a mini shovel, the stainless steel tool with a two-tablespoon capacity can hold anything from coffee beans to milk and features line measurements up to 20 milliliters for precise brewing.
Hario V60 Dripper
The Hario V60 is one of the most popular coffee drippers due to its specific features -- a 60-degree cone shape that extends contact time between ground coffee and water flowing to the center, a large single hole that adjusts water flow speed, and spiral ribs that allows air to escape for coffee grounds expansion.
Hario V60 Drip Kettle
Kettles designed for pour-over coffee are crucial for maintaining water temperature, consistency of coffee grounds extraction, and control of water flow. The Hario V60 Drip Kettle available in silver and black is compatible with most heat sources, including induction and electric, and features a narrow shape for an easy pour.
thermo mug Canister
Don't forget to pack your coffee beans into a tightly-sealed container to prevent them from spoiling. With an 8.5 x 16 centimeter dimension, the thermo mug Coffee Canister holds up to 220 grams of coffee powder. In addition, its stainless steel material gives it a lightweight and durable structure.
RAAWII Ceramic Cup
Having a designated coffee cup may seem like a mere choice of aesthetics, but studies have proven that the material used in manufacturing can affect the drinker's perception of the coffee's quality, whether it's a change in taste, temperature, or even sense of touch. Ceramic is typically recommended for keeping the original taste of coffee, as well as its insulation and compatibility with dishwashers.
