The Clever Dripper is in a nutshell "Clever" it's easy to use but still makes a killer cup of pour over coffee.  Its shaped like a standard pour over brewer, but a valve on the bottom allows you to hold hot water in the brew cone.  Because of this, the Clever Dripper is considered an immersion-style brewer, meaning you can produce something like French press coffee but without the muddy layer of fine coffee grounds at the bottom of the cup. Clever, indeed.  It is an uncomplicated tool to use and allows even the newbie to brew coffee with minimal effort.

The Prismo Aeropress Attachment is another little gadget that made in on our list, this incredible attachment gives super powers to your AeroPress®. Its pressure actuated valve stays sealed until you press down and creates a build-up of pressure to brew coffee with a consistency that is similar to espresso.  It eliminates the need for paper filters, with its reusable 150 micron etched filter, it stops sludge in its tracks and fits directly over your favourite espresso glass to “pull a shot” at home. Espresso-style, full-immersion, cold brew, hot/iced tea, americanos, and more—endless recipes are just one plunge away!

But if you ask any of our team the single most important item in their coffee kit is a grinder.  Everyone wants to drink and enjoy the best possible coffee. Grinding your coffee fresh at home can greatly improve coffee flavour and enjoyment.  We will also recommend buying whole beans and grinding them fresh just before you brew.  Its the easiest way to improve your enjoyment of freshly brewed coffee and the smell of freshly ground coffee is a real treat to the senses. Hand grinders, such as the one of the Hario hand grinders we supply are at a great price point are perfect for all filter brew techniques.  But to make you coffee experience fast, easy and consistent an electric grinder such as a Wilfa are the ultimate gift.

This year is a year to celebrate the gift of giving and kindness, from a simple bag of coffee to a shiny coffee machine let us help take the stress out of shopping and instead enjoy the simple gift of giving!
