Do you love coffee or know someone that does? Are they constantly opening up their Yelp app to find the closest “third-wave” coffee shop? Give them these premium essentials to make great coffee at home. Here’s what it boils down to.
- You must have fresh roasted coffee. Whole bean, not ground until right before brewing. Buy some of the freshest coffee at my online store: http://buy.ethans.coffee.
- Water. Coffee is 98% water! In order to get the best tasting coffee, you need good tasting water. Consider getting them a reverse osmosis system. Too expensive? Maybe a simple Zero Water filter pitcher will do. If your water tastes bad, your coffee will too.
- You need to have the proper grinder. A burr grinder. Here’s a list of my favorites; from least expensive to most.
- Brewing Equipment:
I have the Breville Barista Express espresso machine. It has a built-in espresso burr grinder. It’s a great machine. If you already have a burr grinder, then the Breville Infuser is all you need. I didn’t have a burr grinder when I won my Barista Express.
