Coffee subscription deals

One of the first steps you should take when upping your coffee game is to use fresh coffee beans. You can search for local roasters, or use their coffee subscription service to get freshly roasted beans delivered to your door. Atlas is one of our favorite services because it brings you coffee from all over the world.

Trade Coffee tops our list of great coffee subscriptions. Trade Coffee’s specialty is bringing a small roaster to your door. Trade does not roast its own coffee beans, but rather partners with hundreds of small-batch roasters across the country to bring you the best small-batch beans out there. There are many deals on the site right now, and most orders will get you a free coffee bag in addition to the discount. Sparrow’s Chocolate and Coffee Gift Box for $59 ($10 off, plus a free bag of coffee) looks particularly tempting.

Blue Bottle is one of the oldest coffee subscriptions. It’s still great, though its selection isn’t as extensive as some newcomers. Where Blue Bottle really stands out is freshness—the company promises to ship your coffee within 24 hours of roasting.

The word quintal refers to the weight in which coffee beans are bought and sold in South America, so it’s an apt name for this service that deals directly with growers and roasters in some of the most famous coffee growing regions in Central and South America. Shipping directly from the origin within one to three days of roasting means your coffee will be as fresh as possible when it arrives. A side advantage is that more of the proceeds from coffee sales go directly to the farmers and roasters in their home countries.

My Sweet

Our favorite espresso machine, the Diletta Mio, is on sale this Black Friday. The device is very new and we haven’t seen it on sale or discounted at all since its launch this summer. It’s sleek and consistently makes excellent espresso with pro-grade features like a built-in shot timer and a PID (computer to check that the boilers are hit). perfect temperature).

De’Longhi’s La Specialista Arte espresso machine is kind of the poster child for what a home espresso machine should look like. Curvy and shiny, it has just the right amount of buttons and a pressure gauge front and center to ensure the espresso is pulled as consistently as possible. This device includes a built-in grinder and a small platform for raising and lowering the shooting glasses. This means there is enough room under the portafilter for a full size cup of coffee if you’re going to skip the shots and go straight for a brew.

The Solis Barista Perfetta Plus is a premium standard espresso machine. It brews a clean, consistent shot of espresso, and doesn’t take up much space. Its compact frame is one of its best features, and it fits perfectly between a toaster and a rice cooker without having to rearrange the worktop.

It’s not the most portable espresso maker (it’s heavy, too), but it produced some of the best extractions of all the portable espresso makers we tested. It’s easy to use—just follow the instructions in this video from the company—easy to clean, and it allows for a great deal of experimentation.

This espresso machine is a great choice if you’re not quite ready to fork out hundreds (or more than a thousand) dollars for an espresso machine. It produces consistent creamy espresso, steamed and frothy milk, and won’t break the bank.

Mr. Coffee’s One-Touch is our top pick for latte and cappuccino machines. WIRED reviewer Jeffrey VanCamp says it pulls as nice an espresso as it can out of just about anything—he even tested it with standard Maxwell House coffee and it produced an acceptable espresso. It doesn’t quite give you the same rich flavor as Breville machines, but this flavor is quite affordable.

The Barista is a shortened version of the One-Touch above, but it’s still a solid machine for just $200 when not discounted. It’s looser than the one-touch, so you’ll have to hold it while you screw the portafilter into place.

Primula Pork Cold Brewer

It’s not a huge discount, but it’s our favorite cold brew coffee maker. Makes about 32 ounces of coffee in one go. All you have to do is place coarse grains in the basket and slowly pour water through them. Then leave it at room temperature or in the fridge for 24 hours, and that’s it.

County Line Kitchen is a family owned business in Wisconsin. Their cold brew brewer uses a trusty 2-quart burr and stainless steel filter basket to brew the coffee. Fill the basket with plenty of ground coffee, slowly pour up to 64 ounces of cold water through it, and let it sit for 24 hours. When you’re done, remove the filter basket and use the lid to pour.

Oxo is a killer brand for most coffee equipment, and this machine is no exception. The shower head is designed to saturate the beans as evenly as possible, ensuring that you get the best flavor out of your coffee without over-saturating any area – which can be a problem for drip machines. If you’ve ever seen your grounds after brewing your coffee and the water seemed to come down the middle, then you’ve experienced the bitter flavors that can give your coffee. The Oxo faucet is designed to avoid this kind of coffee nightmare.

AeroPress Go

The AeroPress Go (9/10, WIRED Recommendations) is barely larger than a coffee mug, incredibly lightweight, and one of the best coffee mugs you’ll ever have on the go. It’s just as good as a standard AeroPress – easy to use, good at reducing bitterness – just smaller. AeroPress is very forgiving. While it may take a little experimentation to make coffee exactly the way you like it, it’s hard to make a bad cup of coffee.

A good drip machine should shower the coffee grounds evenly, and it should have some programmable features. This machine excels at both and includes a built-in scale for measuring just the right amount of coffee. But perhaps its best trick is that you can use it as a hand pour dripper in addition to all of its other features.

Cafe’s Drip Coffee Maker is everything you could want from a high-end drip machine. It brews excellent well-balanced coffee with no burnt flavours. The water nozzle ensures that the grounds are watered uniformly and quickly, which are the keys to getting great coffee from your drip machine.

One of our favorite coffee grinders, the Oxo Conical Burr Grinder is our top pick for anyone who’s stepping up their coffee game and picking up a burr grinder for the first time. It’s inexpensive, reliable, and provides a level of consistency (and precision) that you can’t get from a blade grinder. No matter how you make your coffee, the rotary grinder will ensure you get the most out of your beans. A fancier version with a built-in scale is also on sale for $240 ($60).

An all-in-one solid roller mill, the Solis Scala Zero is a good choice for newcomers. It can grind fine enough for espresso or coarse enough for pouring – or anything in between. It’s also quite small for a rotary grinder, which is always a plus in small kitchens.

The Java is our top pick for those looking for an ultra-strong hand grinder. The sleek, slim tube made of aircraft-grade aluminum is stiff enough to double as a weapon, yet it’s (relatively) lightweight. The handle is also smart. It folds up and provides plenty of leverage while grinding, then it folds and snaps at the top and you can use it as a hook to hang your Java when you’re done. The Java is capable of grinding everything from a coarse French press to a smooth espresso.

Ember Mug²

This may not be the kind of cup you’re going to replace All Your mugs with, but Ember Mug!2 is a fun office tool for any work-from-home setup. It has a small charging pad that doubles as a coaster, and keeps your coffee at its hottest peak well after a standard mug has allowed it to cool.

Imagine the life of your coffee with some hot and foamy milk. With a little practice, this affordable, battery-operated device can produce cappuccino-quality foam. While you’re at it, grab our favorite stainless steel milk jug for $10.

You’ve likely seen these kettles sitting on the countertop at your favorite coffee shop. The Fellow’s Stagg EKG Electric Kettle (8/10, WIRED Recommendations) has a tall, narrow neck for precise control when brewing coffee, but it’s also a great everyday electric kettle and looks great on just about any surface.

The Zojirushi Classic 16-ounce travel mug is BPA-free and has a wide opening to accommodate ice cubes if you want to make a cold drink. The lid closes to avoid accidental spillage, and I (Adrienne) had accidentally left hot tea in it for 18 hours and found it still hot when I carefully opened it again.

If you want to improve your coffee brewing process, get a scale. You need it to weigh beans, pour-overs, espresso, and more, and the only way to reproduce your results is if you knew what you did. This scale is a budget-friendly model that still offers everything you need.

Don’t want coffee? How about some tea? We love getting our tea locally, but not everyone lives near a good tea shop. I’ve come to rely on Tea Spot, which offers everything from loose leaf teas to great brewing mugs to tea subscriptions. This deal is pretty good across the site, including two of my favorites, Morning Mojo and Climber’s High Chai.
