People ask me all the time, “What is the best way to make coffee at home?” My follow up question is always, “How do you want to brew coffee?”. More often than not the answer is drip coffee. Drip coffee is easy and makes sense for the majority of people brewing coffee at home before work. That is unless quick far out weighs good in which case a K-Cup brewer might be a better option.
Bonavita Drip Coffee Maker
The Bonavita Drip Coffee Maker is my number one drip coffee maker recommend for people who want good coffee at home and don’t want to fork over the $300 required for the Moccamaster by Technivorm. It is one of the only brewers certified for by the SCAA mostly due to it’s consistency in water temperature which is one of the most important factors when brewing a coffee. All things considered the Bonavita Coffee Maker in my Top 3 Coffee Makers in it’s class and is my number one recommend in it’s price range. If you want really good coffee at home this is the coffee maker you want to purchase.
Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinders
Even more important than the coffee maker you use is the grinder. Burr Grinders are the best possible way to grind coffee at home because of their ability to grind coffee in the same size granules consistently. This allows for proper saturation of the coffee being brewed. The Capresso Burr Grinder does the best job at offering a great coffee grind in it’s price range.
If you have been brewing coffee with a cheaper coffee, purchased at a major retailer, these upgrades are going to offer you a coffee that blows your mind in comparison. These will be the wisest investments you have ever made for you coffee enjoyment at home.
