Coffee Roasting, Brewing, and Storage

Coffee Brewing methods and Coffee Grinder


Moccamaster KBG 741 10-Cup Coffee Brewer with Glass Carafe, Polished Silver The Technivorm is the best drip coffee machine I have had. It brews hot in the basket and does a good job extracting the coffee. Watch me use it in the video here: Using the Technivorm Moccamaster

 

Toddy T2N Cold Brew System This is no ordinary cold brew device. It makes coffee concentrate. You are supposed to dilute the final product in water. It’s too strong to drink straight. You can also make cold brew tea with it. Good option to consider if you are interested in making cold brew. The downside is that it does take up space, in your fridge. It’s about the size of a gallon of milk. The glass pitchers is slightly smaller.

 

Hario Mizudashi Cold Brew Iced Coffee Pot/Maker (1000ml) This is your classic cold brewing device. It does tea and coffee. For tea, I generally put in 14 grams of loose leaves. For coffee, usually around 70 grams. Let it sit in the fridge for about 6-8 hours or overnight and its ready to drink!!

 

Frieling Double Wall Stainless Steel French Press Coffee Maker, 23-OunceI used to have a glass French Press but didn’t like how the glass can be removed from the stainless steel holder. After doing some research, I found this one and have never looked back. Read more on my post  How I do French Press with the Frieling French Press and  watch this video of me Using the Frieling French Press

 

This Zojirushi CW-PZC22FC is a counter top hot water dispenser. It’s portable and can be disconnected and moved to a table, if needed. Perfect for tea and coffee or whatever hot water needs you may have! Watch how I use it in this video: How to Make Vietnamese Iced Coffee (Ca Phe Sua Da)


Capresso Infinity Burr Grinder I have the silver version and use it whenever I make drip or french press. I’ve had it about 3 years now and works like it did the day I bought it!

Coffee Roasting

I initially started roasting coffee with the Freshroast SR500. It is a great little machine and perfect way for someone to get started roasting coffee. The Hottop on the other hand is much more of an investment. The learning curve is a bit steeper also. But once you get the hang of it, you will be rewarded with nice 1/2 lb. batches of fresh coffee whenever you please.
