As we wrote about last month, we now have this handy little cleaning supply + coffee kit tailored specifically for drip coffee lovers everywhere. Watch Gail take us through what’s included in this kit, provided by Urnex.
As we wrote earlier this month, the MyPressi TWIST was revamped last year to be more robust and a little bit flexible (you can now use CO2 cartridges as well as NO2). Watch as Gail goes through the feature improvements and pulls us a shot.
Time for a little soft brewing! Gail shows us the ins and outs of the Sowden Soft Brew and makes us a cup o’ coffee.
How do freshly roasted beans hold up in the Airscape after two months? We put a batch of Velton’s Bonsai Blend to the test to see if sealing them away — and not opening them again for two months — would keep them tasty. Watch Gail pull a shot with the beans and put her taste buds to the test for science.
With all the espresso accessories and fun gadgets you’ve been collecting, you may find your kitchen counter space getting a little more cramped than it originally was. As we have heard from plenty of our customers, counter space can be an issue and sometimes the deciding factor on what espresso toys they choose.
But worry no more! Gone are the days of catering to space over getting what you really want with Jonathan Simon’s DIY Custom Espresso Cart (video).
You won’t need to be an experienced carpenter but you may want to know how to swing a hammer. All it takes is some innovation, a $50 IKEA kitchen cart and a few tools, and you’ll have your own maneuverable espresso cart with built in knock-box for easy clean-up and extra storage.
Rocket Espresso and Mazzer joined their considerable forces to take the popular Mini and Mini E (Type A) versions of Mazzer’s grinders and wrap them up in a big ol’ Rocket bow. They have the same functionality as their non-branded counterparts, but with a polished stainless steel exterior and a Rocket badge on the back.
Watch Gail take us through these beautiful new grinders.
Look, we recognize that not everyone can (or wants to) drop a cool $2k on their home espresso machine, but pretty much everyone still wants to make a solid cup of coffee at home. DeLonghi’s petite ECO310BK is a simple single boiler, semi-automatic espresso machine designed for the budget-conscious.
Watch Gail give us the usual run down on features, pros and cons and whip us up a latte.
