For many people, stopping at a coffee shop is a regular part of their morning commute. But as we’ve all heard many times, those daily $3 purchases add up over the weeks, months, and years into an extremely pricy habit. Why not invest in some high-quality coffee gear now and brew your own, saving thousands of dollars in the long run?
Below, you’ll find everything you need to make a cup of coffee that’s just as good or better than what you get at your local coffee shop. It’s quick, easy, and it saves you money. What are you waiting for?
The only way to make great-tasting coffee on a regular basis is to grind your beans in a consistent fashion. And the only way to do that is by using a well-made burr grinder with a hopper that funnels the beans down through the grinding wheels to create fine, medium, or coarsely ground coffee. So which burr grinder is the best?
For our money, the best mix between a reasonable price and a dependable grind is the Capresso Infinity Grinder. It’s a compact device with a small footprint, so it doesn’t take up much counter space. It has 16 fineness settings, so you can grind your beans to your exact liking for espresso, drip, or French press. And don’t worry about imprecise grinds: The conical burrs in this machine are assembled by hand in Switzerland, the home of the best watchmakers in the world.
