best coffee gadgets hario skerton ceramic mill o
If you’re like 83 percent of adults in the United States, your day doesn’t quite feel right until you’ve had that cup of joe. West Coasters might head to Philz for a Mint Mojito, East Coasters may prefer a smooth Americano at Dunkin Donuts, and others simply line up every morning at their neighborhood Starbucks. But these coffee shops require you to change out of your pajamas and walk out the door, and let’s face it: it’s hard enough as it is just to get out of bed on most mornings. So why not brew your own coffee at home? With the right gear, you’ll get results that will put even your favorite coffee shop to shame, and no one will judge you if you have a second or third mug of the stuff, in case the first wasn’t strong enough. Plus, you can do it all in your pajamas, and that’s worth every penny. We’ve rounded up the latest tech in coffee gear that will have you brewing like a coffee connoisseur in no time.

How much it’ll cost: $129.75, Amazon.com

AeroPress Coffee Maker

Why you should buy this: It’s lightweight, portable, and easy to travel with.

Who it’s for: If you spend a lot of time on the road, you can make great coffee from anywhere.

How much it’ll cost: $30, Amazon.com

Why we picked the Aeropress Coffee Maker: If you spend a lot of time on the road or have a vacation coming up, it doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice your morning cup of coffee. This AeroPress device allows you to make a great cup of coffee from pretty much anywhere, be it your hotel room, the airport waiting lounge, or Machu Picchu. The plastic cylinder is small enough to fit into your carry-on, so you don’t have to worry about it adding a lot of weight or bulk to your luggage. It’s also remarkably easy to use, working much like a French press. Simply pour ground coffee and hot water into the AeroPress, then wait half a minute before pushing down the plunger. The total immersion process makes full-flavored coffee without the bitterness, and unlike a French press, this one uses a micro filter that doesn’t leave behind grits, meaning easier clean up for you. For espresso-style coffee, simply add an attachment, like this one by Prismo, designed specifically for AeroPress.

Fellow Stagg Pour Over Kettle

Why you should buy this: It’ll get just the right temperature for that perfect cup of coffee.

Who it’s for: If you hate that acidic taste homemade coffee sometimes gets, this kettle will put an end to it.

How much it’ll cost: $79, Amazon.com

Why we picked the Fellow Stagg Pour Over Kettle: Precise functionality meets aesthetic appeal. This kettle gets the temperature of water just right, so you don’t end up with the acidic coffee flavor that results when the water is too hot or too cold. You can keep an eye on the temperature using the brew range thermometer located on the top of the kettle. The kettle also has top-notch design, with a stainless steel body and lid, and a precision spout with a fluted tip that produces the optimal flow rate when pouring water over ground coffee or using it with instant coffee. The size is also generous, as you can brew up to one liter of water at a time. Aesthetically, the design is also sleek and sharp, and it’ll fit right in with the other appliances and decorations in your kitchen.

Nourish Glass Top Scale

Why you should buy this: A truly perfect cup of coffee needs to be measured precisely.

Who it’s for: Weekend warriors who like coffee that tastes like it’s from a high-end Paris cafe will want this scale around.

How much it’ll cost: $17, Amazon.com

Why we picked the Nourish Glass Top Scale: Whether you’re making instant coffee or using ground beans, precision is key in producing the perfect sip. That’s why the water temperature has to be monitored precisely, the brewing time should be controlled, and the weight of the beans must be just right. Use too much coffee, and you’ll wind up with a cup that’s too strong for your taste. Use too little, and it’ll taste bland and not at all refreshing. This scale is easy to use, and it can conveniently weigh food items up to 11 pounds. It also converts five different units of measurements.
