Coffees

  • Royal Kona Private Reserve Kona Coffee

    I love a good cup of Kona, which is hard to come by in Kentucky, so I have my eye on Royal Kona Private Reserve Coffee. They offer 100% Kona options at a medium roast level and roast after you order for maximum freshness. They also offer peaberry options, and sampler packs (including single pot samplers that can be had at a reasonable price).
  • Ethiopian Yirgacheffe Coffee 16 oz

    One of my all-time favorite coffees is Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. It is the coffee that got me hooked and it continues to be one of my go-to coffees today. I love the fruity, floral tones that come through this coffee. I used to think that when people tasted the “hints” and “notes” in the coffee they were crazy, but it is hard to overlook the flavors in a good Ethiopian Yirgacheffe. I see a lot of people supporting the Volcanica brand as they seem to be an online-first coffee roaster focusing on high grade coffee, so this is on my “to try” list.
  • I like a little adventure and variety in my coffee cup, so the ability to sample coffee from great roasters from all over the place seems exciting to me. I really like the look of the Angels’ Cup subscription program starting at $10.99/mo. This program offers fresh, whole bean and ground bean options and can be stopped at any time.
  • Nothing fancy here, just my favorite chocolate covered coffee beans. Trader Joe’s too far away, buy on Amazon Prime and get them shipped to your doorstep free.

Coffee Gear

  • I currently use my Yama coffee pot to make cold brew coffee by first putting in coffee grounds, then adding water on top and refrigerating for about 24 hrs. This produces good cold brew, but is a little hard from a cleanup point of view, so this 1 liter Ovalware cold brewer with steel filter greatly appeals to me. Plus 1 liter (34 oz) is perfect for serving me and my wife. Larger sizes are available for bigger crowds. Plus it comes with a free cold brew ebook!
  • Have you ever noticed the little plastic vents on the side of your bag of coffee? It probably upsets coffee shop owners, but I love squeezing the bags and smelling the coffee aromas that come out of the vents. They serve a good purpose – letting CO2 vent out from freshly roasted coffee, and more importantly, letting air get forced out by the CO2. Air is the enemy of freshness. The lid on this EVAK 1 lb canister has vents, allowing you to compress the lid and force most of the air out of your beans, and allows the coffee to gas off. This is a lot nicer than the old ceramic canister I have, and would help keep my freshly roasted coffee fresher, longer.
  • I only drink an espresso every now and then, but when I do, I want it to be a good one. With the Flair you can get a high quality, professional level shot of espresso without forking over thousands. As long as you have a source of hot water, you can have high grade espresso drinks anywhere. Rok also makes an attractive manual espresso machine, but the ability to add a pressure gauge to the Flair is the tie-breaker for me, giving me not only control over the pull but the information I need in order to consistently get a great espresso.
  • I love my Fresh Roast SR500 roaster, but am sometimes frustrated by the limited capacity (about 1/3 lb), so I am very excited to try out this new extension chamber.
