Siphon and Vacuum Pot Coffee Brewers »
Besides espresso machines, siphons may be the most elaborate coffee brewers out there. They require close attention and quick, careful technique but offer a wonderful reward. Using a siphon is just plain fun and the coffee they brew is nothing short of delicious. Full immersion brewing brings out coffee's intense fruity flavors — especially with dry processed beans — and the standard cloth filter yields a cup so clean you could drink out of it. (That is the point, right?) When it comes to the presence of sediment, siphons are the polar opposite of metal-filtered presses. Paired with a butane burner, a siphon offers control of many brewing variables, making it a perfect choice for coffee geeks and control freaks. The siphon is one of our favorite coffee toys and we're certain that you'll enjoy them just as much.
One of the top coffee grinder manufacturers has just released one of the most versatile grinders to date. With the capability of grinding from French press to espresso, the Mahlkonig Pro M provides the grinding range that would normally require two separate grinders. The grinding range combined with features like the "hands free" operation and break functionality help make this grinder ideal for both low-medium volume commercial settings and home use.
$48.62Tampers are as diverse as the baristas who use them. Our new tamper meets the needs of almost any barista, whether professionally trained or newly beginning. With its durable aluminum handle and wide, smooth top, the tamper is ergonomically designed to fit comfortably into the palm unlike other overly rounded handles which can press a little too tightly into the hand of the barista, or flat topped handles which can become uncomfortable after extended use.
The base of the Prima tamper is of a hefty 304 stainless steel design. This solid steel base combined with the light, detachable aluminum handle adds balanced weight to the tamper which helps aid the barista in providing an even tamp, shot after shot.
As the interest in specialty coffee continues to increase, so does the interest in brewing methods that best compliment the quality and ideals of specialty coffee. Up until this point there have been limited options when it comes to pour over brewing devices that offer both a small learning curve as well as excellent results. Garnering praise for both their calculated design and ease of use, the Kalita line of pour over brewers are helping that small list of brewers grow. The Kalita Wave Dripper is being offered in both small (1-2 people) and large (1-4 people). The small size is offered in both glass and stainless steel while the large size is offered in glass, stainless steel, and ceramic. For an overview of the unique style the Kalita Wave Dripper brings to the pour over method, a feature chart that overviews the design, technique, and advantage can be found below.
