Whole Bean Coffee

For coffee as rich and flavorful as what you’d get in your local cafe, opt for whole beans to grind at home.

Take the time to explore different types of beans to find your favorite: roasts (light, medium and dark) impact flavor, as does which region your coffee comes from. You can check with your local coffee shop to see where their beans are from—and even purchase a pound or two.

Burr Grinder

Baristas attest that one of the keys to a great cup of a coffee is the grinder. A burr grinder customizes the bean’s fineness to the type of coffee you’re making (cold brew vs. drip vs. pour over) and grinds the perfect amount depending on how much coffee you want to make.

While you’re flexing your barista skills, learn coffee lingo to sound like a pro.
