Hario Buono kettle and either the Hario Skerton or Porlex. Use the rest to buy a scale if you don't have one, or a pour over if you don't have one, or a bag of beans :)

u/Orleanian · 13 pointsr/funny

Okay I guess -

This one is pretty, and comparable to this teapot

Stainless steel tea kettle. Compare stainless steel teapot.

Pouring Kettles typically function as their own pot, in the style of these gooseneck pots.

This Kettle is Black, and calls out his friend The Teapot as also being black.

I'm convinced that this glorified Tea Kettle is really the same product as this novelty Tea Pot.

Who wore it better?

u/Mymom429 · 11 pointsr/Coffee

I'd have to recommend looking away from a pod based machine. Because it's pre-ground the coffee is stale already when you buy it. In addition to using stale coffee these machines aren't capable of producing enough pressure (9 bars) to produce real espresso. Instead of opting for a machine I'd get an aeropress.

An [Aeropress,] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000GXZ2GS/) [grinder,] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001802PIQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_PE85xb5KY6678) [scale,] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004164SRA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_NG85xb8VP81H3) and [kettle] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000IGOXLS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_8J85xbF33PVD0) will be cheaper than the Nescafe and will produce significantly better coffee.

The nice part about the aeropress is its simplicity and versatility. You can use it as an espresso substitute for Lattes and milk drinks, drink it black for a clean, bold cup, or dilute it to an americano for a traditional cup of coffee. Make sure to get some fresh beans from a local roaster too!

Hario Buono Kettle for $36. I'm considering it myself as I don't have a kettle at all. Hario V60 Buono Coffee Drip Kettle, 1.2 L https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000IGOXLS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_rhSPwbMRE3BG8

Does he have any pourover devices? If he does, a kettle would be really nice to have. This is the one I have, and I love it.

I guess that is something I would buy myself, though, so that doesn't fit your question....

u/Rashkh · 4 pointsr/tea

The typically recommended options for stove-top would be:

  1. Hario - 1,2
  2. Fellow - 1,2
  3. Oxo
  4. Bonavita
  5. Kalita - 1,2

    If you just want a standard stovetop kettle then you'll be fine with most reputable brands since there really isn't much that can go wrong with them.

    Edit: I just realized I'm not in /r/coffee. If you're not doing pour-overs then pretty much any kettle will work. I'd probably go with a $20 Cuisinart or something.
u/[deleted] · 4 pointsr/Coffee

This guy. It's a bit up there in price, but I adore mine. I'm sure others have great suggestions, and I'd like to know them too!

u/Im_getting_to_it · 4 pointsr/Coffee

What's your price range? The Hario Buono Kettle runs for just shy of $40 on Amazon right now, and the Fino Kettle runs for just under $30.

If you're really tight on money though, you can always look for one of those tall silver-plated tea pots with a long spout from a local antique store. I picked one up for $3 and used that for years before getting myself a Bonavita. It's a little unwieldy but it gets the job done, and pours much cleaner and slower than a normal kettle.

u/Bell_Biv_WillemDafoe · 4 pointsr/Coffee

Bodum French Press and a Hario Buono kettle are probably enough to get you started. French press will be a bit more forgiving when it comes to brewing and you can probably keep your current grinder until you decide if you like it. Just make sure to try and keep the grind fairly coarse. Might take some playing around with. Cheers!

u/doubleme · 3 pointsr/Coffee

The kettle is indeed necessary. It's only $40 though.

u/wrelam · 3 pointsr/Coffee

The Kalita Wave Pot is gorgeous and the comments say people use it on gas, electric, and induction stoves. It's just $1 over your budget.

The Hario V60 Buono Kettle is another option as well, slightly less expensive at $38.

Lastly, I know it's out of your price range and you don't need electric but wanted to mention it anyways. The Bonavita Variable Temp Kettle is pretty much the standard just in case you're interested!

The only thing is that you basically need the Bouno Kettle or a similar kettle to use the V60 properly. Unless OP has a kettle that can give a slow consistent pour, the V60 may be a bit out of the question...

Here is a video I found about how it all works:
http://vimeo.com/34182806

The big thing is to use FRESH roasted beans (we're talking ~3 weeks old or less). If you are buying beans that don't have a date on em, try again. Hopefully there is a coffee shop around you that will sell their own roast (usually comes in a 12oz package). If not you can try the grocery store or order online (http://ceremonycoffee.com/ is a good start), it really depends on the city you live in.

I had always liked the aroma and taste of coffee in other things (ice cream specifically) but it wasn't until I got into beer that I really started to appreciate it. Hopefully this finds you well, feel free to send a message my way if you have any specific questions!

u/_Sigma · 3 pointsr/Coffee

>I thought about a pour over, but I don't really know what I'm getting myself into

Honestly, not that much. It's pretty straight forward. A Chemex produces a fantastic cup, and would only really require you get a gooseneck kettle. Ditto if you go the v60 route. Bonavita has a couple, either temperature controlled or not. Other wise Hario kettle would also work.

Regardless, take a look here at Brew Methods. It has summaries on a variety of brew methods, from chemex to other. May give you some ideas.

>I don't want to spend a ton of money,

Depends on what "a ton of money" is to you, but:

  • you may want to consider a new grinder, it will allow for expanding what you can do with the coffee. Potentially too much money, but a refurb Baratza might be worth saving for. Especially the Maestro/Virtuoso if you aren't doing espresso.
  • a scale to weight coffee and water to nail down variables
  • a gooseneck kettle for pourovers

    > would a chemex be a better investment?

    Yes, imho. Buy a cheap gram scale, a gooseneck kettle, and a chemex/v60. You'll be very pleased with the results.
u/rDr4g0n · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Moka pots are fun, but I can't make it a daily thing.

I say shore up your pour over gear. A gooseneck kettle ($38) and a scale ($17) are musts.

You could replace the plastic cone with something prettier like a v60 ($11), but you can use the scale and kettle with the plastic pour over cone just fine.

[edit] the pour over cone I linked isn't a v60, but I'm sure you can find it :)

Here's the thing..

Gooseneck kettle will last you forever and it is an absolute staple if you're going to invest in this hobby/truly enjoy this ritual.

I like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Hario-VKB-120HSVV60-Buono-Pouring-Kettle/dp/B000IGOXLS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1501770513&sr=8-1&keywords=hario+gooseneck+kettle

I also would recommend a scale that can weigh out by the .1 gram (or even more fine). Also a timer is important.

Kalita wave is very forgiving, great to learn on, and makes a wonderful cup of coffee. I use Kalita Wave each morning and Chemex on weekends.

Good luck buddy!

u/gbeier · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Since it doesn't sound like you're poised to dive into the insanity that is espresso, here's what I'd recommend for a top notch drip setup:

  • Clever coffee dripper $13.50
  • Baratza Maestro grinder $99.00
  • A good scale $30-$50
  • A good, quick thermometer $15-25
  • A kettle where you can easily control the flow rate $40-70
  • Beans from a quality, specialty roaster

    On that list... the grinder is really not optional. You should get one that good or better; it makes or breaks the setup. For the brewer, you could go with any other pour cone or a french press instead of the dripper and get great results. The scale probably isn't optional. The thermometer probably is. The kettle is definitely optional but makes things easier to manage if you're going with pour-drip. (It doesn't matter for press.) The one I linked is the best of its kind.

    With that setup and coffee from one of the roasters on that list, I'd say you'll have a hard time finding better coffee anywhere outside your home. As far as how it appeals to someone who likes "caramel macchiato" drinks from *$, I'd add some quality syrups and some good milk to match her taste.

    Off the list of roasters I linked, I order most frequently from Klatch, Gimme and Counter Culture, and have loved every single roaster I've tried from that list.
u/segasean · 2 pointsr/Coffee

To answer your question, the strength of your coffee is mostly influenced by how much coffee you're using versus how much water. For a strong cup with your Keurig, go with the setting with the smallest amount of water. The Keurig is by no means the "best" method to make coffee, but it will make coffee. If you decide to get a manual brewer (French press, Aeropress, Kalita Wave, etc.) the brew time has some leeway, but I'd recommend just using more coffee than trying to push the recommended brew time too far. Coffee can/should be strong without being bitter, and keeping the water and coffee together too long will create bitterness.


What follows is everything you need to know about making great coffee. Warning, this may be overwhelming:

  1. Freshly ground coffee is going to taste better. Consider coffee like bread. A loaf left on the counter will get stale faster if you slice it up. Freshly roasted is better, but it might be more expensive/harder for you to find and you might not want to dive that deep yet.
  2. Conical burr grinders are better than blade grinders. The problem is that a decent automatic burr grinder is going to be ~$100 and that's a steep price for someone just getting into coffee. Many people will recommend the mini mill, Skerton, or something along those lines that is hand-crank. (Good non-name brand options: 1 and 2) Those are your best bet. Although I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, you can get an automatic blade grinder if you might have an issue with manual grinding/don't want to drop a lot of money. I will mention that darker roasts are easier to grind manually so there's less worry for your wrist. The problem with blade grinders is you get a bunch of differently sized bits, which makes it more difficult to get consistency and figure out a grind size/brew time you like.
  3. Each method of brewing calls for a differently sized grind. This is pretty important. If it's too small, you'll get a bitter cup. If it's too big, you'll get a sour cup. The same goes for brew time. Too long will make a bitter cup, and too short will make a sour cup. However, there's some leeway on both of these to your taste.
  4. There are a bunch of ways to make coffee that change how it tastes. Methods that involve filtering through paper make a cleaner cup, but you lose most of the oils in the coffee. Metal filters leave in these oils, but can also leave a lot of sediment/mud in the bottom of your cup. You might drink this if you drink that last sip, and it isn't really nice.
  5. Weighing your coffee is much more accurate if you want to make a consistent cup. A tablespoon of a darker roast might be 5 grams while a tablespoon of a lighter roast might be 7 grams.
  6. You'll need something to boil water in. If you have a kettle, great. If you don't, you can use a pan or you can buy a kettle. It doesn't need to be a fancy/expensive gooseneck-style one (1 and 2), but you might want one of those if you get into pourover methods.

    I would recommend a French press (1 2 3 4) or Aeropress for someone just getting into coffee. They're much more forgiving than pour-over methods, meaning you're less likely to make a bitter cup. They each have their own drawbacks, too. An Aeropress is easier to clean up, but can only make one cup at a time. A French press takes more time to clean, but can make about 3 cups at a time. (By cups I mean a standard 12-ounce mug.) Definitely get a grinder, too (see above). A scale (1 and 2) is optional but recommended. For beans, seek out a local roaster/coffee shop, but there are tons of online options available, too.

    Welcome to the wonderful (and sometimes crazy) world of coffee!
u/cryptowillem · 2 pointsr/Coffee

There's also a 1.2L Hario Buono

u/mal1291 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

The answer to your question is really dependent on budget. A quick perusal through the sub will show you that the Aeropress is a popular option because it is one of the least expensive ways to get a solid cup of coffee.

If you have some cash to part with, it might be worth looking at setting yourself up with a pourover setup - I'd probably suggest the v60. You would need the v60, the hario buono, and you'd probably want a scale to weigh coffee (there are a LOT of options, many cheaper than what I've linked). You would also need to get a reasonably good grinder - check out the sidebar for a list of grinders. Yes, it's a lot of capital to get started, but the coffee is fantastic and the equipment is very durable. This equipment, properly cared for, could potentially outlast you in many cases.

There's also the standard drip coffee maker, but from my experience if you go that route you ought to just invest in the cheapest one. The quality coffee from most drip machines is pretty similar. A better question is what grinder to get - that will improve your brew quality across all methods. Again, sidebar has great advice, but a really popular grinder here is the[ Baratza Encore] (http://www.amazon.com/Baratza-Encore-Conical-Coffee-Grinder/dp/B00LW8122Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1459250167&sr=8-1&keywords=baratza+encore+coffee+grinder) which you can sometimes find on their refurb page for discounted prices.

No matter what you choose - good luck and happy caffienation

u/canekicker · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Not sure about availability and pricing in Germany so everything here is in US dollars. If pricing over there is a straight conversion from dollars to euros ( $100 = 105€) you'll be pretty close to 100€.

In terms of grinders, you'll be in the manual grinding arena with Hario Skerton, Hario Mini or the Porlex JP-3 if you want to spend a bit more. Just be aware these are good enough for a single person but if you're doing more, be prepared to grind in batches.

Since you're doing a pour over, you're going to need a gooseneck kettle to help control your pour. You're out of the range for electric kettles with temperature control, however you may be able to find electric goosenecks without temperature controls. Again, Hario is a popular option but I've heard mixed reviews about them, namely poor heat retention and debate over whether to use it directly on a stove top. The Stagg Kettle is well regarded and can fit into your budget if you choose a less expensive grinder.


u/semiotist · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Why not just use a cheap electric kettle and pour the water from the electric kettle in to this one. I learned this method from a friend and since then my hario kettle has not touched the stove it's just so much faster and more convenient (though you'll want a little extra water to warm up the kettle first).

u/saxmanpi · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I agree with getting a kitchen scale where you can weigh your coffee. Getting your measurements right makes a difference in the way your coffee tastes. I started out at a 1g:14g coffee to water ratio the first time I started brewing. I'm now at a 1g:16g coffee to water. There's a lot of methods out there it seems on r/coffee and the internet. But I think that's the beauty of it is that we can experiment and find our favorite cup of coffee. TONS of resources online

  • Pour carefully and slowly. Having a gooseneck kettle. The gooseneck helps control the pour a lot compared to an electric kettle. I brewed for about two years with an electric kettle and I noticed a considerable difference when I upgraded to a gooseneck kettle.
  • Temperature matters. I believe most electric kettles don't go higher than 160F (about 71C). The gooseneck kettle I bought when I upgraded was the Bonavita Variable Temp Kettle. Kind of pricey but it killed two birds with one stone for me. I could now brew at 201F (about 93C) and higher. This also improved the quality of cup I was making. I've seen places brew at 200F or 205F.
  • BradyHoke hit some great points. No need to further reiterate.

    V60 Brew Videos

    Iced Coffee Tutorial I used to learn
u/puerh_lover · 2 pointsr/tea
u/THANAT0PS1S · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I started getting into coffee nearly a year and a half ago, and here is what I did to start:

I bought

  • A Hario V60 02 Pour-Over Dripper ~$20, with filters, ~$30

  • A Hario Buono Gooseneck Kettle ~$50

  • A Bodum Bistro Burr Grinder ~$150

  • A scale ~$25

  • Freshly, locally roasted whole beans ~$10/lb. Dark roasts tend to be less acidic, sweeter, and have less caffeine (when brewed correctly); light roasts are the opposite: acidic, fruity, and more caffeine.

    Now, bear in mind that I knew that I loved coffee before I invested all this money into it; you should obviously really consider your situation and really get into "good" coffee before splurging on all of this equipment. I now have a French press, a moka pot, and am going to invest in an Aeropress soon, but I still prefer the pour-over method to any other coffee that I've had, thus why I recommend you go that route. It can take some definite getting used to and has a bit of a learning curve, but it is easily worth the effort (tutorial videos will help immensely.

    Keep in mind, you needn't buy exactly what I did. Shop around, see what you like and what is in your price range. I will say this, however: if you do go the pour-over method, go for the V60 or the Chemex, they are both easily the best on the market, and the same goes for the Buono kettle, though if necessary you can purchase a different kettle, just so long as it is a gooseneck (which is required to finely control the flow of water).

    Many other people will tell you to go with a French press. This is good advice as it has a very slight learning curve in comparison to pretty much every other method (besides maybe the Aeropress, depending on who you talk to): it is literally grinding the coffee coarsely and letting it sit in water for X-amount of time. It also does not take filters, is easy to clean, and is a relatively cheap initial investment (~$20). I like the Brazil model that Bodum makes.

    No matter which method you choose to brew with, there are three things that you should not underestimate the importance of (and thus should not skimp on):

  • Freshly ground and roasted beans are a must. The fresher, the better.
  • A blade grinder will always do a worse job of grinding than a burr grinder. It is worth it to spend the extra cash for a burr grinder right off the bat, as, if you get at all serious about coffee, you will eventually purchase one anyway, rendering your blade grinder useless and a waste of money in hindsight. Blade grinders make it nigh impossible to control how fine or coarse the grind is, which is one of the biggest variables in coffee brewing. There are absolutely cheaper models out there than the one that I linked to, especially if you get a manual one rather than the electric one that I own.

  • A scale is essential. Coffee brewing is very much an exact science. Making sure the ratio of water to coffee is exact and being able to fine tune down to the gram/milliliter can create some of the biggest deviances between batches next to grind size. This cannot be overstated.

    Best of luck. There's a lot of good knowledge on this sub, on this sub's How to Coffee: A Primer, and on the Internet in general. Check it all out, pick your path, and enjoy the ride!

I think the two most important questions are: what are some coffees that you've had and like? What sort of work are you willing to put into it?

My personal recommendation would be to get a Baratza Encore grinder, a digital scale, a gooseneck kettle of some sort, a Chemex, and a French Press. All that should easily fit within your budget. And of all the accessories I have, on 90% of the days I don't use anything other than those. Well, and some coffee beans.

But that will take some work -- measuring, grinding, pouring, waiting, more pouring. It will make much better coffee than any automated machine, but maybe you don't care that much and it sounds like too much work. In that case, the Technivorm Moccamaster and Bonvavita 1900 TS are good options for automatic drip machines.

EDTIT: Sorry, I missed "automatic" in the text. I still don't think that will give you the best coffee, but if you're set on it, ignore everything I said except the Technivorm and Bonavita.

u/whiskeysnowcone · 1 pointr/Coffee

I always make a single cup. I am the only one in my house that drinks coffee so I have no reason to brew more than 12-16 ounces per brew.

I use the Chemex 3 cup maker and a kitchen scale. I boil a full pot of water (I use a Hario VKB) and start by rinsing the filter with the hot water plus it helps to warm up the Chemex. I use 15 grams of coffee and presoak with 20 grams of water. After presoak, I brew with 280 grams of water. Using a total of 300 grams of water per cup. After brewing I usually end with around 270-280 grams of brewed coffee.

I use the same method for iced coffee except I rinse the filter with cold water and add 150 grams of ice to the Chemex, pre-soak with 20 grams and brew with 130 grams of hot water.

u/andrewkunesh · 1 pointr/Coffee

If I was in your situation, I'd purchase:

  • Aerobie Aeropress - $25
  • Prolex Grinder - $50
  • Hario Buono - $50
  • Thermometer - $10
  • Kitchen scale - $15

    Remember, good beans are vital to a good cup, so make sure to stop by your local artisan roaster for a pound of fresh coffee beans. Once you become more invested in coffee, you'll probably want to try more brew methods like Chemex, V60 (pourover), french press, and maybe even espresso. Best of luck!
u/SwedishColumns · 1 pointr/Coffee

Definitely, yeah. Temp control is really not as important as pour control in this arena, so make sure to look at one of these or one of these if you want to save some money.

Jumping on the back of this post. I received a £30 amazon voucher off my employer for Christmas. I also received a v60 off my girlfriend and quickly noticed that a gooseneck kettle would be beneficial. Can anyone recommend this one? The price seems quite cheap compared to others I've seen amazon

u/orevilo · 1 pointr/Coffee

What I'd do is get her a nice kettle, some sort of pour over device (V60, Chemex, Wave, etc. up to you) and some fresh beans. You'll want to put off ordering the beans from whereever you choose until the last minute so that they are as fresh as possible.

u/p00he · 1 pointr/Coffee

IMO I think you can get better bang for your bucks, all possible with a cheaper price tag -- I've assembled a list assuming a pour over kit. Obviously you would want to get a dripper. Now, there are a lot of different kinds out there (even within the same product line e.g. plastic vs ceramic construction), amongst which the popular ones would be the Hario V60 and the Melitta, the Beehouse included. For the kettle, you can get the Bonavita Variable GooseNeck for $60 now at Amazon (it's a steal!), or the Stovetop version for $20 less. The Bonavita allows the user to manipulate the temperature much more precisely, and thus ensures more consistent consecutive cups of coffee. To be even more precise, get a scale. I have owned the Hario Slim Mill for some time now, and with some simple modification, it can grind some pretty darn consistent grinds! I think altogether this will sum total to at most the same price. And above all, make sure you buy him freshly roasted beans!

Hario kettle has indeed an ergonomic design and offers you complete control over pouring. The product has some good reviews on Amazon. A few complaints i've read were about the heating time - it does take a while to heat up compared to others. Here's a good review about this kettle: http://www.kettlepedia.com/reviews/hario-v60-buono-coffee-drip-kettle/.

French Press is how I started down the rabbit hole. But coffee is ritual with that I take great pride and joy in making an excellent cup of coffee. I purchase coffee from Counter Culture Coffee and they ship me 2 x 12oz bags every month. I freeze one while working my way through the first bag, I defrost the second bag from the freezer in the refrigerator 48 hours ahead of time then move to storage.

Now I own:

Baratza Encore Grinder which I purchased refurbished from Baratza Link

Chemex link A really beautiful pour over, looks great in your kitchen.

Kalita Wave Link IMHO the best pour over money can buy.

Aeropress link My ride along for any trip and work.

Hario Gooseneck Kettle for Precision Pouring link

Storage; I own two different types This and This

A cheap electric kettle, A kitchen scale, and all my mugs.
I have a Bakers Rack in my kitchen that most of these are displayed. When I make a cold brew after the brew process I store it in a glass milk carton from a Straus Family Milk purchase. (I think the deposit is $3?)

Not all of this is necessary but I love my coffee and I am not afraid to show it. I say for every beginner you owe it to yourself to at least purchase an aeropress, it makes fantastic coffee thats almost foolproof.

Hmmm I see, would you recommend the hario buono or the non temp adjustable bonavita electric kettle?

Yeah, I made my first cup today with a standard kettle and it was just too hard to pour due to lack of accuracy and consistency of the stream.

To me, the important parts of pourover with manual grinding is more in the experience for the user compared to the exactness of everything.

Get whatever products you feel good about getting, and be sure they fit budget--ya gotta be able to buy coffee to make coffee.

I saw that the hario VKB 1.2 liter was on sale through amazon link

A higher end model is the Bonavita, but that is really just because it comes with an electric, less than exact, heating base. link to amazon

In reality, you can find fanboys of both, and there are benefits to "dialing in" your temperature; however, using a manual grinder, and doing stove top until the water boils is all that is really necessary, and electric heating pads are almost never very accurate.

Eventually, ie 2 years, you'll need to replace the 6 USD v60. I recommend using the 20 USD ceramic amazon.

Similarly, I have heard very few complaints about the Hario Skerton Mills amazon and you can get an official upgrade kit that stabilizes lower burr to produce a more consistent coarse grind amazon link.

A price breakdown would lend itself to the following for this setup:

Type|Item|Price
:----|:----|:----
Grinder | Hario Skerton | $39.37 @ Amazon
Kettle | Hario VKB-120HSVV60 Buono Pouring Kettle, 1.2 litre | $33.89 @Amazon Saving 49%
Coffee Dripper | Hario V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper (size 02, white) | $19.46 @ Amazon
Grinder Upgrade | Blue Horse Products Hario Skerton Upgrade Kit | $10.99 @ Amazon
| Total | $103.71


You'd have about a hundred dollars left in budget, so you could buy an encore refurb from Baratza.


I hope my table worked :D
edit: fixed my table

Accessible enough with practice. That is a Kalita Wave and that particular model is metal. (They do make other materials)


Some things on this list can be substituted for cheaper items. Good luck future nectar drinker.
