The Mr.Coffee coffee grinder is a fantastic option for those searching for an affordable yet durable grinder that will stand the test of time. I can attest to its excellence as I have owned this coffee grinder for years and has never let me down. The coffee grinder provides consistent and even grounds, resulting in a delicious cup of coffee every time. Its compact size makes it perfect for small kitchen spaces, and its straightforward operation ensures ease of use.

Bodum pour over coffee maker

The Bodum Pour-Over Coffee Maker is an excellent choice for those on a budget who still want to enjoy a delicious cup of pour-over coffee. Priced at just 22 dollars, this coffee maker offers great value for money. It is designed for simplicity, with a straightforward pour-over method that gives you full control over the brewing process. Its compact size makes it ideal for small kitchens or even for travel. Despite its affordable price, this coffee maker does not compromise on taste. It delivers a smooth and flavorful cup of coffee that will satisfy even the most discerning coffee lovers. While this is an incredible choice I will say that the glass is not very durable so I recommend being very gentle when using it. Mine sadly broke from a very small fall with ease so if you are clumsy like me I highly recommend getting a pour-over coffee maker with thicker glass and a non slip base.

Primula pour over coffee maker

After my first-ever pour-over coffee maker slipped on my counter and broke in two I was determined to find a sturdier pour-over coffee maker that could withstand the test of time. After doing a good amount of research I found the Primula pour-over coffee maker. The Primula is a great pour-over coffee maker that comes with a silicone sleeve on the bottom to keep the glass from slipping and a handle with a wood grain finish allowing you to get an amazing pour without touching any hot surfaces. This coffee maker can hold up to 36 oz and is a great option for any pour-over coffee lovers who are clumsy like me. While this is a bit more expensive than the Bodum pour-over coffee maker the Primula coffee maker will last much longer and be worth the extra money.

WEIGHTMAN Precision Coffee Scale

This precision coffee scale is a great option for any of you coffee lovers who want to have the perfect cup of coffee every time but don't want to spend $30 on a simple coffee scale. The Weightman precision coffee scale can hold up to 1000 grams and can easily fit in a pocket to take with you wherever you go. With this scale, you will never have to guess again because you can treat it like a baby and bring it anywhere and everywhere you go. One downside I have experienced while using this precision coffee scale is it gave me an error screen in the middle of my pour even though I wasn't over the weight limit which wasn't a big deal for me considering my pour-over maker has markings telling me how many ounces I have made. However, that one problem could greatly affect someone else if they do not have markings on their pour-over maker.

Chefbar Gooseneck Kettle

The Chefbar gooseneck kettle is a great budget-friendly option for anyone who wants a precise pour-over. I originally bought a different gooseneck kettle but when it arrived at my house I realized that I had bought a MINI gooseneck kettle! While I used the mini gooseneck kettle for a while it was very obnoxious because I had to refill it multiple times while making pour-over but now that I have the Chefbar gooseneck kettle I can hold a perfect amount of liquid for my needs. My favorite feature of this gooseneck kettle is the thermometer attached to the lid because it allows me to get my water to the perfect temperature however be sure to watch it because it does not whistle like some kettles. The main downside I experienced with this gooseneck kettle was the durability and placement of the handle. When I received the product the handle seemed close to the base of the kettle so I tried to bend the metal a bit but sadly the plastic part of the handle broke with a very tiny amount of force and left a crack. This is not a big problem because the handle is still on and it works fine but it is something to consider.

TimeMore Chestnut C2 Manual Coffee Grinder

After doing a lot of painstaking research(aka watching 3-5 videos) I decided that the Timemore Chestnut c2 coffee grinder was the highest quality option in this price range. There may be cheaper grinders but I think it is 100% worth it to spend the extra $10-$20 on this grinder because of the amazing quality, sleek build, and great portability. The Chestnut C2 comes with 32mm Burrs, has 36 adjustable grind settings, and is only about 7" tall. One of the best features of the Chestnut C2 is the double-bearing central axis because it makes it incredibly easy to grind beans without breaking a sweat. When I first thought about a manual grinder I immediately thought it was going to be a workout but the C2 exceeded my expectations. I barely have to try when grinding coffee beans which is amazing because I don't want to feel like I'm at the gym while making my cup of coffee. The one downside I would say this grinder has is the capacity because it can only hold 25g of coffee which might be a deal breaker for some.

AeroPress Coffee Maker

One of my followers recommended I try espresso out of an AeroPress which I did not know was possible. I hadn't even started venturing into the espresso space before this due to the extreme prices. I love coffee but I am not ballin enough to spend a couple hundred dollars for an espresso machine right now. However, after trying the AeroPress, I am greatly surprised at how well it works. Not only is it very simple to use with easy-to-follow instructions but it also makes a wonderful shot of espresso.

Airscape Container

The Airscape container is the best option if you want to keep your coffee beans or anything else fresh for as long as possible. The Airscape's unique design comes with a second lid that pushes the oxygen out of your beans. Oxygen is a coffee bean's worst nightmare because it causes it to go stale and lose its flavor. The patented inner lid has a two-way valve that allows oxygen to exit but doesn't allow oxygen to enter. One downside I noticed about the Airscape was that one of my coffee beans got stuck in the inner lid and got crushed. This was probably a user error so I recommend pushing the air out slowly to prevent this from happening. Overall I love the Airscape and I think it is worth giving a try. Not only does it keep your coffee as fresh as possible it also looks very sleek and fits well inside of a coffee bar.

Chemex Pour Over Coffee Maker

The Chemex pour over coffee maker has grown very popular in the coffee world due to its amazing quality and ability to make an amazing cup of coffee. I recently picked one up for myself because one of my followers recommended I try a pour over maker that uses paper filters rather than a mesh filter that I was previously using. I was not confident that it would make much of a difference but I went ahead and tried it anyway because my previous pour over maker with the mesh filter had way too many coffee particles at the bottom and it felt like I was eating coffee with every cup. I was very glad I switched as soon as I used Chemex for the first time because I noticed right away that the sediment was no longer at the bottom of my cup. The only downside I can think of is that you have to buy more filters when you run out because they are not reusable and that can be a bit pricey but I 100% think it is worth it if you want an amazing cup of coffee. The paper filters aren't the only thing that makes the Chemex an amazing choice it also has a very high-quality feel with thick glass and nice handle.
