4 Affordable Coffee Tools from Start to Finish


Roasting your own coffee at home can be a very rewarding experience. Everything is within your control from the green coffee beans you select to time roasted. When you start roasting coffee you will notice that if you roast to dark many of the natural flavors in the coffee will disappear. We suggest starting by roasting one batch light, one medium and one dark and doing a comparative tasting to gauge where you want to go with the coffee.

1. Nesco Coffee Roaster

The Nesco Coffee Roaster is the most affordable way to get a great tasting roasted coffee. It is an air roaster and uses hot air to roast the coffee. Many people believe it provides for a cleaner cup with more pleasing acidity.

Grinding your own coffee is of paramount importance. Getting a consistent grind size allows for equal saturation of your coffee. The best way to accomplish this is with a Burr Grinder.

2. Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder

The Capresso has consistently been a favorite of coffee enthusiasts everywhere. This is because of it’s consistency in grinding and low price point.

In the brewing process there are two things that matter most: 1) Water purity & 2) Water Temperature. There are two must have tools for pure water and proper temperature.

3. Purr Water Filter

The Purr Water Filter is very easy to install and start using to get great tasting coffee. It attaches easily to your sink facet and turns on and off at your leisure.

4. Bonavita Coffee Maker

The Bonavita Coffee Maker is one of just a few coffee makers certified by the SCAA. This is because it brews coffee at a consistent 195-205 degree temperature. Brewing your coffee at a consistent water temperature doesn’t come at a more affordable price.
