Do you really need a fancy, specially-designed gadget to brew up a batch of cold coffee? Or can you just use your trusty ol’ press pot? While we carry a couple of different cold brew options (from Hario and Sowden),…
It’s our favorite time of the year — Velton’s limited edition Holiday Blend is back! This year, Velton says he was inspired by fruitcake, combining two fruity coffees in a 50/50 blend that we found to have very chocolatey and…
In our latest round of grudge matches, we forced Gail, Rob and Allison to face off over their Hario pour over. Who makes the best cuppa? Find out in this riveting tale of triumph and humiliation.
It’s time to get your summer plans in gear and prepare to hit the trails! Fun in the sun — or rain, if you’re in our neck of the woods — is oh-so-much better when you’re highly caffeinated. Watch Gail…
The pour-over lovefest continues with Hario’s Woodneck drip pot — available in 240ml and 480ml sizes. Gail takes our demo model out for a test drive to see how the cloth filter measures up.
We spent an afternoon up at Hario USA (now Roustabout Products) earlier this year and posted a wide array of videos from that field trip. But there’s nothing like a Gail review, is there? So we asked her to show us the ropes on how to use one of the Hario pour overs. Watch as she talks to us about the process and whips up a smooth cup of coffee using Velton’s Twilight Blend. Delish!
When the weather starts heating up, we love nothing better than a rich iced coffee drink. Seriously — nothing. In the past, we have be known to brew espresso directly into an iced cup or pour out hot-brewed drip or press coffee into an iced cup, knowing that there would be dilution in the mix. We are now converts, however, of the cold brew coffee preparation — specifically, Hario’s Cold Brew Pot makes a deliciously smooth and rich cup of coffee.
Summer’s siren song is courting us, so it’s time to start thinking about how to take our coffee on the road. There are several excellent brewing options available that are both easy to use and to transport. Here are some recommendations for your coffee travel kit.
Now that we have all our Hario stock in the store, we had a chance to play around with the new grinders to see how they work with espresso machines. Watch as Gail goes through different grinds and tries them out on the Rancilio Silvia.
The final video (yes, can you believe it?!) from our field trip to Hario USA earlier this year features a competition between Gail and Velton regarding who could produce the better cup of pour over coffee.
