    When I'm looking for a pure expression, this is how I prefer to brew my coffee. It's clean, straight-forward, and feels all sciencey! What's not to love?

    I know little to nothing about coffee. When I bought this thing off a recommendation from Tim Ferriss. My coffee game shot up 10x. It makes a very strong cup of coffee.

    Pour over is my go-to method. I use an electric burr grinder. I change up beans often, I'll usually try whatever is on sale at Whole Foods. I also really like their Whole Food's Allegro brand (good price/quality). As long as the beans are fresh, I'm pretty happy! 😀

    I use a Hario V60 and a manual or electric burr grinder. It's so easy once you get the right grind consistency! There's an awesome London coffee roasting scene which I'm trying to sample more from.

    Though it's not my first choice, I do love brewing my coffee in Hario V60. Especially when I have to brew 2 cups of coffee at a time.

    I love Chemex for a light and clean taste, thanks to the special thick filters (this is the key difference between the chemex and other pourovers). It also gives you more control over your coffee (you can control the water temperature & distribution of water). It takes time and practice, but the process is a magic itself too :)

    The Chemex is my favorite for most single origin beans. Clean but still full flavored

    My go-to weekend coffee preparation, whether it's just for me or for a few people. Always a fantastic cup (or 4) of coffee.

    Relatively cheap, simple and almost considered an industry standard amongst baristas worldwide. Can't go wrong with a V60!

    Yep, this is my go to for a simple cup of coffee. It makes a nice pour over.

    For a more daily drinker it is hard to beat a pourover through the v60.

    Blue Bottle Coffee Subscription

    Delicious coffee, fresh-roasted, delivered to you.

    This is an excellent subscription service from Blue Bottle. The beans usually arrive about 1-2 days after roasting, so they are incredibly fresh. I have been getting the Single Origin Assortment (Latin America, East Africa, or the Pacific Islands) plan for about three years, since the Tonx days, and have been very happy with it. They also offer Blend Assortment and Espresso Assortment plans.

    Blue Bottle consistently sends me nice beans with which I make iced lattes, usually with Monin vanilla for a sweet yet refreshing flavor.

    Hands down the most consistent quality I've experienced from a roaster. Also, they have introduced me to a wider range of regions than I had ever tried before, such as sub-sub-regions of Ethiopia for example.

    I'm stuck thousands of miles away from Philz but still have yet to find a better blend than theirs, so I just order it. No shame. It's that good. I then grind it and either pour over or use my snobby "shower drip" machine. Delicious and strong AF, just like I love it.

    Pact Coffee

    Subscription fresh coffee delivery

    Vijay MichalikTech Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan · Written
    Pact democratizes access to speciality-grade freshly roasted and ground coffee in the UK by lowering the price point through their subscription and recommendations. Their business model allows them to achieve direct relationships with individual farms which also surfaces the occasional microlot- the best of the best small quantity high quality beans. Most of the bags I get have been roasted within the past week! You can really taste that level of freshness.

    Good coffee needs a good grind. I love my Baratza encore. Consistent grind, not too large on my counter, and not as expensive as top-tier grinders.

    I've just hit my two year anniversary with this subscription service. I find the selections solid, tasty, and beyond what I'd otherwise normally find on my own. Here's $10 to try it: http://mbox.coffee/JNTL

    Moka Pots will make your traditional small (2 oz) expresso cups. It uses steam from boiling water to infuse your coffee. So that the water and the coffee is never in contact.

    In Sweden we love coffee and everyone can't afford expensive barista visits. I recommend this because it's engineered to perfection for a super price. It destroyed me for other coffee-makers. It's not the flashy kind, it just makes perfect coffee - Then I also recommend the swedish Zoégas coffee for it ;)

    This is my favourite machine on the market. We use one in our office (makes a gallon at a time) with La Colombe beans and it's far better than anything else.

  18. A Chemex guy here. Sometimes the V60. But in the summer, its cold brew. The Hario cold pitcher is a good choice. Its quick, simple and looks great.
