In this post, we’ll list the items you’ll need to have stocked for each brew method! We hope this serves as a one-stop reference should you need to re-order any of the following coffee brewing essentials.

But before we start, there are 3 absolute must-haves for at-home coffee brewers. We highly recommend you have the following accessories to start—it will change your coffee world forever.


#1. An electric kettle with temperature control, to guarantee your water is the right temperature (this is important)
#2. A conical burr grinder for a consistent, even grind that results in maximum flavor extraction (very important)
#3. A scale with a timer, to remove all the guesswork in finding the optimum coffee:water ratio (you’ll love the results and ease of use)
