Whole Bean Coffee
For coffee as rich and flavorful as what you’d get in your local cafe, opt for whole bean coffee 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 buy as many coffee products as you want, but a great brew always starts with great beans. Treat your palette to new blends with a coffee subscription box.
Reusable K-Cups are your answer to enjoying the easy convenience of Keurig single serve coffee machines while being kind to the planet. This Keurig accessory is compatible with all Keurig machines and it’s dishwasher-safe. Another bonus to using a reusable K-Cup is that you can fill it with your favorite ground coffee—giving you so many more ways to love your Keurig machine. Add Keurig cleaning pods to your coffee arsenal for a fresh cup of joe every. single. time. (Editor’s tip: Reusable K-Cups are compatible with our favorite Nutribullet coffeemaker, too.)
A French press is one of the easiest ways to make a rich cup of coffee at home. If you love the taste of freshly pressed coffee, but dread cleaning out the coffee grounds, the Simpli Press French Press is a game-changer.
The secret to Simpli Press is the coffee basket that uses a plunging mechanism to pull up the grounds for easy disposal. Say hello to customized, smooth coffee at home in three minutes, and goodbye to scooping out messy coffee grounds. No more grimy sediment! Read our full rundown on how to use a French press.
What you’re drinking out of matters almost as much as what you’re drinking. These hand-glazed mugs are an elegant addition to any kitchen and will look charming mixed and matched with your current cute coffee mug collection (especially on one of these mug trees!). They’re just the type of coffee products you’ll be eager to show off when you have guests.
Baristas attest that one of the keys to a great cup of coffee is the grinder. A burr grinder customizes the bean’s fineness to the type of coffee you’re making (cold brew versus drip versus pour-over) and grinds the perfect amount depending on how much coffee you want to make. While you’re flexing your home barista skills, learn all about the different types of coffee.
Fancy coffee carafes aren’t just for hotels and restaurants. Carafes come in handy for serving large groups at brunch or at your next holiday gathering. They make serving a breeze and keep your coffee piping hot for hours. Here’s the best coffee brand you should be serving up to your guests.

Serious aficionados swear that using a Chemex is the purest method of getting your coffee fix. It’s one of the easiest coffee products to use—simply place beans into a filter and pour hot water over them—and promises the smoothest cup you’ve tasted. See how Chemex compares to other brewing methods.

You could also try whipping up your own homemade coffee creamer.
Don’t forget the water! Filtered water—without particles or chemicals—is a core part of a great-tasting cup of coffee. A Brita pitcher guarantees the water you use as the base of your drink is always cafe-standard. Brita is one of our favorite water filter pitcher brands, after all.
The Aeropress is similar to a French press, but it doesn’t require a long steep time and can make espresso-style drinks, too. Aeropresses also make the perfect on-the-go companion—their small size is perfect for traveling and camping! (It’s actually one of our favorite travel gifts.)
