If you read our blog on Aug 3 on coffee drinks and how to make some of them at home you’ll see below we’ve mentioned various pieces of equipment.
In this blog we explain some of the gadgets you can get to brew your perfect cuppa at home:

French Press otherwise known as a Cafetière, Coffee Plunger or Coffee Press

A cylindrical carafe with a plunger and filter this can be used for any bean. You simply add ground coffee beans into your French press, pour piping hot water over the grounds, let the coffee steep for a few minutes and finally, press the plunger down and pour.


The AeroPress is similar to the French Press and can be used for an espresso like cuppa, lattes, cold brews or just a classic cup of coffee.

Moca Pot otherwise know as a Stove top or Percolator

Used over the stovetop or any heated surface, percolators brew coffee by continuously pushing boiling hot water bubbles up into the “coffee chamber” to steep the coffee grains.

Drip Brew Coffee maker and Pour Over Coffee

For this brewing process there is a wide variety of equipment which use the same principal of dripping or pouring hot water through the coffee grounds to extract a delicious brew.
