COVID-19 made us all many things. The social parts of our lives that we took for granted became entirely individual, from botched home haircuts to getting our coffee fix in the morning. The scary realization that our morning coffee would no longer come with a pretty milk leaf on the top of it forced many of us to up our coffee-making game, but why didn't you upgrade your equipment, too?
Saving $20 a day on coffee has likely stuck with you, even now that your local coffee spot is open again. But, to make the most of your new brewing skills, we've put together a shopping list to bring your home coffee game up to the standards of a real coffee shop.
From the brewing equipment to your coffee mugs and even some light reading material while you polish off your morning caffeine injection, here are the coffee accessories needed to round out your expert coffee game.
Scroll on for the best coffee accessories for the perfect home setup.
Equipment and Accessories
Look, being a barista takes training, and we condone supporting your local coffee shop, but here's the important stuff for getting a similar result at home. There are a few options here, and your choice depends on your coffee preference and perhaps your laziness. Go fully automatic with a coffee machine, like the one from Joy Resolve which brews your morning coffee in time with your morning alarm, or a stylish pour-over set from Bi.Du.Haev.
Mugs, Cups & More
With the bread and butter of the coffee shop sorted by way of machines and other equipment, you now need something to eat and drink said bread and butter (or cappuccino) with. From delicate ceramics by Brain Dead to indestructible steel iterations from Snow Peak, there's a mug for every coffee head here.
Don't know about you, but it's not just the Brazilian beans and smug barista we go to our local for. Who hasn't selected their go-to spot on the quality of the reading material? Here we've finished things off with the little intricacies that amount to the full coffee shop experience.
