Kyle Gomes’ Guide to the Perfect Brew

We asked Finlays’ very own “Unofficial Coffee King”, Senior Applications Scientist, and Certified Q-Arabica Grader, with over 20 years of coffee experience, Kyle Gomes, about his must-have coffee accessories and equipment, and he delivered a list fit for an aspiring coffee guru.

  1. How to Make the Best Coffee at Home by James Hoffman – $21.46/£16.99 at the Square Mile Coffee Roasters

Interested in brewing better coffee at home but don’t know where to start? There’s plenty of advice out there, but if you want to start with one of the most respected coffee professional’s techniques, How to Make the Best Coffee at Home by James Hoffmann is an interesting read for beginners to enthusiasts.

  1. Neoweigh Espresso Scale – $13.95 on Amazon

Brewing better coffee at home starts with consistency, so weighing out the coffee (and water) can be a great start. Kyle uses this one mostly for brewing espresso at home, but he says it’s great for all around kitchen use too.

  1. Third Wave Water (formulated for coffee brewing) – Starting at $17.00

A brewed cup of coffee is typically 98%-99% water. Water is one of the easiest variables to change to adjust the flavor to the desired preference. Third Wave Water allows you to select your water by roast level or brew type for that perfect brew.

  1. Baratza Encore Grinder – $119.95 at the Baratza website

Freshly roasted coffee beans can be a game changer, so a quality coffee grinder is a must. The Baratza lineup has several types of grinders for filtered coffee, espresso (or both) at different price points. The Encore is an ideal entry-level option that can grind for filter coffee and espresso in one!

  1. AeroPress – Starting at $39.95

What happened when a Stanford educated toy engineer and a cup of coffee collided? The AeroPress! Alan Adler invented the Pro Ring to be a better frisbee, and the AeroPress to brew a better cup of coffee. He had no idea it would end up being the signature brewer now used in international coffee competitions.  AeroPress is a worldwide phenomenon that you can enjoy at home or on the go, and it lives up to the hype by brewing a great cup of coffee.

  1. Bonavita Coffee Brewer – Starting at $149.99 at the Bonavita website.

If you’re looking for an upgraded coffee brewer, Bonavita has some excellent options. These are slightly more expensive than typical automatic drip brewers, but you get a Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) certified home brewer that maintains water temperature for proper coffee extraction, resulting in a better cup of coffee. Worth it!

We hope that you found the perfect gift for your loved one with our 2023 Coffee and Tea Holiday Gift Guide! At Finlays, our experts are dedicated to elevating your coffee and tea experiences through collaboration, for you and your customers.
