This is a curated list of our top coffee gear picks here in POC & Co. We’ve chosen the coffee gear based on price, value, customer support, & quality. This list will change over time as we review or use better products. But if you’re looking for starter pour-over coffee gear or a premium replacement for your old coffee gear, this page is for you.
Best Value Pour-Over Coffee Maker
Coffee Gator With Stainless Steel Filter – Our top best value pick pour-over coffee maker. The price point for the Coffee Gator is fantastic and it already comes with a steel-mesh filter so you can use your brand new pour-over coffee maker straight out of the box! No need to mess with paper filters. If you’re looking to get into the pour-over coffee game without breaking the bank, definitely consider the Coffee Gator pour-over coffee maker.
Premium Pour Over Coffee Maker
Chemex Pour-Over Glass Coffeemaker – It’s iconic, gorgeous and when you think about pour-over coffee, Chemex comes to mind. It’s been around for ages and arguably continues to be the best pour-over coffee maker on the planet. Chemex does have a hefty price tag, but it’s worth every penny. The Chemex is a piece of kitchen art that you will use for years to come, it will pay for itself in a couple of months.
Best Value Pour-Over Coffee Kettle
COSORI Electric Gooseneck Kettle with 5 Variable Presets – Really the best electric kettle just needs the water to get to 205F degrees, but the Cosori is a great buy because you have 5 different settings for temps. Even better is the price point for the Cosori electric kettle & the value it gives you for many years. It’s a solid pick for a gooseneck that won’t set you back too much.
Premium Pour-Over Coffee Kettle
Fellow Stagg EKG, Electric Pour-over Kettle – What better piece of art to compliment your Chemex? The Fellow Stagg EKG is worthy of sitting next to your Chemex pour-over coffee maker. The Stagg is arguably just as beautiful & more importantly functional piece of kitchen hardware that you will enjoy for years to come. We chose the Stagg as our premium electric kettle for its looks, functionality & customer support.
Best Value Burr Coffee Grinder
Cuisinart DBM-8 Supreme Grind – This grinder is a workhorse! It’s been around for years and I still have mine for 4-5 years ago, still works today. Admittedly, I’ve gone through two DBM-8 over the years. While it does have some mechanical design flaws internally, the price point is superb & definitely a value pick, especially for a burr grinder. If you want to be serious about pour-over coffee, a burr grinder is a must, the DBM-8 is a great started burr grinder.
Premium Burr Coffee Grinder
Baratza Encore Conical Burr Coffee Grinder – We use the Baratza Encore in our office & it has been fantastic! Arguably the best grinder for its price point and especially for home use. Many coffee shops use the Encore as well, but you can certainly own one at home. We chose Encore for its known quality, customer support & longevity. It’s definitely more expensive than the DMB-8, that cost comes with more control & quality grind that you need to step-up your pour-over coffee game.
