Students studying the history of coffee will find Faema’s award-winning machines manufactured exclusively for the professional market for the last 20 years. Faemina marks the return of the brand to the home kitchen, based on his one Italian company’s 75-year quest for the ultimate espresso, and the domestic coffee of his machine. The highest grade.
The Faemina (starting at £4,570) might be considered a home appliance, but it meticulously adheres to the standards set by the Istituto Espresso Italiano and doesn’t cut corners. In fact, this is a solid double boiler (one for coffee and one for steam), an integrated water softener, a height-adjustable drip tray for perfect crema in your favorite cup, and an optional autosteam function ( manual). Frothing milk is not proper), an app that gives you fine-grained control over every aspect of the coffee-making process.
Made with Lavazza’s Great Marlboro Blend (launched in November), the Faemina espresso is like no coffee I’ve ever tasted, sharp, sweet, spicy and wintery warm. The machine’s skill set also extends to producing the perfect filter coffee and, with unexpected blasphemy, brews excellent tea.Exquisitely designed by Italdesign Giugiaro, it is available in a variety of finishes and colors to choose from.
For those whose love of coffee ranks a few steps below outright obsession, the other two espresso machines also do well. Yes, it can be connected to the water supply and fully integrated into the kitchen. And the fantastic Sage Barista Express Impress (£729.95) is an easy, high-quality introduction to espresso making for the budding barista.
Wilfa Uniform+ coffee grinder
Designed by Wilfa Norway, the performance of this grinder does not lag far behind that of professional grinders. It has a flat bar (the conical bar model doesn’t work consistently) and a nice auto-stop feature that somehow knows when the job is done to prevent the beans from getting too hot before the coffee is made. There are 41 settings to choose from by twisting the bean hopper with a satisfying click, and if precision is part of your routine, you’ll appreciate the scale and timer on the lid. Works well – It’s easier to tip the contents into a paper filter than a portafilter, but that’s a bit of an issue. 389 pounds, wilfa.co.uk
Hario water dripper
Good coffee is given to those who wait. If you’re prepared to wait five hours, your patience will be well worth it. Cold brew coffee brewed with a water dripper is known for its exceptional taste without the sourness of espresso. Yama and Tiamo made drippers that search the world like Victorian chemistry sets, but Hario’s two-liter monster is the best. When placed on a table, the top ball rises above head height and from two valves he pumps water into two flasks at a rate of one drop per second. The resulting brew is smooth, rich, and can be stored in the refrigerator for several days. This is because we don’t want to wait five hours each time. 1,600 pounds, hario.co.jp
Mocha Master KBGT & Jug
Espresso-based coffee is delicious, but it can be a pain to make if you’re tired and depressed. I forgot about coffee, so of course there is. The Dutch Mocha Master has been making coffee since 1968 and his coffee has won awards from prestigious bodies such as the European He Brewing Center. The latest version of his KBGT his model features a thermal his jug that holds over a liter and keeps coffee at his 80ºC for up to 3 hours. KBGT’s plastic parts may feel a little light, but its performance is anything but flimsy. Perfect filter coffee, and lots of coffee, no messing around. 239 pounds, moccamaster.eu
There are two great reasons to hand over your cup at your local coffee shop. One is environmental (and blindly obvious) and the other is olfactory. The hole in the lid of a standard disposable cup is big enough for coffee, but does it smell? TOPL’s clever vented design addresses this decades-long rage by allowing you to drink from any part of the rim while pushing aromas directly up to your nose, just like a regular cup. . Why is it called TOPL? Well, if it falls over – these things happen sometimes – the vent will snap shut and the latte’s integrity will miraculously be preserved. 12 oz cup, £29, toplcup.com
