Let’s talk about coffee. There are so many ways to drink coffee at home — and you don’t even need one of those fancy, Earth-hurting K-cup things.

Instead, go for the brewed kind, the French press, the Chemex, the Aeropress. Not to mention espresso and cold-brewed coffee. So many options!

Really, there is absolutely no reason for you to be paying $5 for a pumpkin spice latte or iced caramel macchiato when you could make your own at home — and a better one at that.

Pick up a few of these coffee essentials and be your own barista. I have faith in you. But first, coffee…

Here are the coffee essentials you need to get started with making better coffee at home:

Coffee makers

Coffee can be brewed in so many different ways. You can go with a regular brew coffee maker, or if you are ready to level up or take some more time with your morning cup, go for a more manual method.

Coffee maker

A traditional coffee maker is a must for many kitchens. You can set it and forget it — and keep it warm for a couple of hours after it brews. We have had this exact coffee maker for several years and love that it has a built-in grinder for fresher coffee.

French press coffee maker

If you have a little more time in the mornings, a French press is a great way to go. French press coffee is smooth and velvety, and it’s a great way to make a brunch special. You can also use it for tea. This is the one that I have — I love that it comes with a storage container for fresh ground beans.

Ready to try pour-over coffee? It’s a smooth, less bitter brew of coffee.

If you like iced coffee, making cold brew coffee is even better than just chilling hot-brewed coffee in the microwave. I have this jar cold brew maker. It’s so easy to brew up smooth, not-bitter coffee in the fridge.

To-go mugs

These are my favorite mugs to take coffee in! My only complaint is a small one: They keep the coffee so warm that I often have to add an ice cube to get it to a good temperature for me. That’s why I started making coffee ice cubes, so the joe doesn’t get diluted! Once it’s at the right temp, it stays that way for hours — perfection!

    real talk – i just learned how to use a french press a few months ago, but it has completely changed my coffee game. also, i have no. 9 but haven’t quite figured out how to use it. finally, i recently discovered the youtube channel “peaceful cuisine” (i think you might like it?) and he makes a pumpkin spice latte that looks scrumptious.
