9 Best coffee accessories for brewing at home
Best Coffee Accessories for Home Brewing
  • Which is better: French press or pour over? Pour-over filters provide good flavor, but the coffee will be stronger if you use a French press.
  • Is it worth grinding coffee at home? Absolutely. Most of the flavor is released at the point of grinding. The longer you wait, the more flavor will escape.
  • Is it worth grinding coffee at home? Arabica tends to have a more pleasing, rounded flavor. However, robusta is cheaper and contains twice the amount of caffeine.

There are many ways to make a cup of coffee. You can fire up the espresso machine, fill your French press, or pour over a filter. No matter how you like your joe, we want you to enjoy it. Here are some of the best coffee accessories for home brewing:
