Hopefully by now you’ve discovered the coffee brewing method that works best for you, and you can start adding on extra products to enhance your home coffee brewing experience.

We’ve found the following ten fun products, from being able to drink your coffee on the move, to dappling in more advance coffee brewing methods.

1. Espro Stainless Steel Travel Press with Coffee Filter

This travel mug started out as a KickStarter project! Created by Bruce Constantine and Chris McLean, the great idea saw the light and you can now enjoy the end-product.

It works with a two-stage extraction blocking micro filter. It will stop extraction the moment you press the filter down, so you can decide how strong you want your coffee to be. Paper filters are included, to create an ultra-clean, oil-free flavor. The taste will be similar to a pour-over style coffee.

Your coffee will stay hot between four to six hours because of the double-wall stainless steel vacuum. It is leak-proof with a double lid and silicone seals.

All you have to do, is pour your coffee grounds in mug and add hot water. Stir the grounds thoroughly. Wait for few minutes. Press down the filter and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee while you dash to work. The nice thing about the ultra-fine filtration coffee press system, is that your coffee will be grit-free.

The patented filter system uses two filters, both are nine to twelve times finer than your average French Press. This means more flavor is extracted from the coffee grinds.

2. Hario Water Brew Coffee Pot

We’ve mentioned the cold brewing method a few times and with this little pot, you can make your own cold brew quickly and effortlessly. The pot makes about 4 to 4.5 cups of coffee, depending on your mug size. The reusable filter is very easy to clean and it’s also dishwasher safe.

It is made from durable glass with a sturdy handle and an easy pour spout. Scoop about three scoops of ground coffee, depending on your taste preference, into the coffee filter. Put the filter into the pitcher and fill up with water.

Place the pot in the fridge and leave it overnight.

Next morning, pull the filter up out of the pitcher and unscrew the filter bottom to chuck the used coffee grounds away. Rinse the mesh filter afterwards. And voila, pour your delicious cold brew out of the pitcher. A great no fuss way of making iced coffee!

The pot needs to “brew” in the fridge for roughly twelve hours, so you can also do the prep in the morning and enjoy a cup in the evening.

3. Keurig My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter

The schlep with making a good cup of filter coffee, is the hassle of getting a good filter to use. You might find a good brand, but it might not be environmentally friendly and recyclable. So it’s great news when you find a reusable coffee filter.

This filter is optimized for all K-Cup brew sizes and it is top-rack dishwasher safe. The removable lid makes it easy to fill as well as clean.

5. Nespresso Aeroccino Plus Milk Frother

You can use hot or cold milk. It can froth hot milk in 70 seconds. Very easy to use, pour cold milk in, just push the button and within about a minute your cappuccino milk foam is ready to use. It has two attachments, a wire whip to produce perfect foam for cappuccinos, and a plastic mini-paddle to produce whipped milk with a little bit less intense foam for lattes.

Please note: you need to hand wash the frother, it is not dishwasher safe. Make sure no water leaks into the mechanical parts.

6. Granvela Coffee Heart Shape Mugs

Okay, these ones we just added to the list because they are so cute and corny! Great novelty gift for a coffee fanatic couple. Made from ceramic stoneware, finished with unique art designs.

Perfect for celebrating a special anniversary or Valentine’s Day. Hand wash recommended.

7. Turkish Greek Arabic Coffee Pot

This pot is handmade in Turkey. Turkish coffee is quite potent, so if you like a strong cup of coffee, this could be a fun addition to your home coffee brewing repertoire.

The copper pot is tin-lined inside for durability and ease of cleaning. The wooden handles have a sturdy shell inline.

You can make between three to four demitasse cups of coffee. Copper is considered the greatest practical conductor of heat, the pot only requires low to moderate heat for best results.

Please note: before you start using your pot, wash it in warm water with a mild soap or dish detergent. The pot is not dishwasher safe. Make sure you don’t ever boil your pot dry and don’t use any metal utensils to stir the coffee. Don’t clean the pot with steel wool or abrasive pads. It is best to rinse the pot straight after you used it, so that the residual coffee grinds don’t dry and harden.

8. Vietnamese Coffee Maker

Vietnamese iced coffee recently became quite popular. If you tasted it once in a coffee shop and you want to make your own at home, this little coffee press is perfect. The filter is made in Vietnam from high quality stainless steel.

Ca Phe Phin means coffee grinder. If you want to make an authentic cup of Vietnamese coffee, use Trung Nguyen beans.

You’ll be making one cup at a time with this little exotic tool, and be warned the brew can be quite strong (depending on the type of coffee grounds and amount of grinds used) It is basically a miniature drip brewer.

Don’t worry, it’s not that complicated to figure out and pictorial instructions are included. The filter has a lifetime warranty and is dishwasher safe.

Do you like throwing dinner parties? Want to impress your guests with a theatrical style brewing method? Perfect for hosting, it makes up to eight cups of coffee. Very safe to use because of the heat-resistant glass and durable nylon.

The handle is also made from stay-cool material and the stopper keeps the coffee warm.

Your guests will be fascinated with the chemistry dynamics in action to produce a lovely cup of coffee. How it basically works is that the water boils up the tube into the globe. You then stir in the coffee grinds and as the globe cools down again, the coffee is filtrated into the bottom of the bodum. A special coffee scoop and resting stand is included. It is dishwasher safe.

10. Cuisinart Programmable Coffeemaker
