Homestyle Pour Overs


First thing’s first… This blog post is brought to you by the amazing cup of manually brewed coffee that I am currently consuming. It’s 4:30PM on a Sunday and this is the first cup of coffee that I’ve had today and it has completely lifted my spirits. It is truly the elixir of the gods. So I guess some of you might be wondering why I’m gushing over a cup of coffee.

One of the perks of owning a coffee shop is that my wife and I have a nearly unlimited access to amazing coffee and top-of-the-line brewing equipment while we’re at work. However, we are left to our own devices on Sundays because we close the shop so that our staff may enjoy time with friends, family, and loved ones. For the most part this is awesome because the majority of my time is spent at work. Really, it’s not as bad as it sounds. Spending the majority of your time at a coffee shop is pretty awesome. Anyway, let’s get back to the point of this blog post…

We’re stepping up our pour over coffee game on the home front! We recently added a bonavita variable temperature kettle and an acaia pearl scale to our kitchen. These two items, combined with my capresso burr grinder and bonmac pour over cone, have drastically improved our manual brew enjoyment! The only other thing missing from our manual brew setup is a decent hario container for batch brewing. This will be coming soon!
