Butter Coffee Gear

Essential butter coffee brewing tools

Grind.

Bodum BISTRO Burr Grinder

Duration of use: 2½ years and counting

Features: Metal burr grinder does a fair job of pulverizing coffee beans. Never jams. Grounds end up in glass beaker with silicone rubber sleeve protection. Easy to disassemble and clean.

Downside: Need to jar it and tap to make grounds empty out completely into beaker. The plastic container on top shifts out of the largest ground setting during grinding – better to keep it at the second to last setting for coarser grounds.

Application: Sits on the counter top for daily morning brew at home.

Hario Mini Mill Slim Hand Coffee Grinder

Duration of use: 4 years and counting

Features: Small enough to be a true handheld travel grinder. Adjustable ceramic burr for ground size. Removable handle for compact storage. Good for pour over brewing on the go.

Downside: Grounds are inconsistent. Requires time and effort for finer grounds.

Application: I took it backpacking through Bali, Singapore, Thailand and Korea. Stored butter coffee ingredients like vanilla beans in the clear bottom part.

Brew.

French press

Duration of use: 2½ years and counting

Features: Stainless steel French press beauty brews 30 ounces of coffee. Double walled body keeps coffee hot while brewing. Smooth lines make it easy to clean. Ergonomic handle and contoured spout make pouring clean and effortless. The lid

Downside: Some water gets trapped under press screen, but tilting all the way gets it out.

Application: Good for brewing coffee on rushed mornings. Brew hands-free for four minutes while adding butter coffee ingredients to blender. Pour finished coffee out and blend. Pour over brewing, in contrast, requires full occupation.

Pour over

Hario V60 Buono Pouring Kettle

Duration of use: 5 years and counting

Features: Light steel kettle can boil 1.2L water over all types of stove tops. No cleaning needed if good water is used. Lid fits very well and rattles when boiling. Spout is ingenious, pours pinpoint water for precise soaking of coffee grounds.

Downside: Handle angle and spout length require some distance from grounds. Difficult to brew directly into a tall blender if counter is too high.

Application: Hario is the authority brand on pour over coffee brewing. I use this every morning to make coffee. The ceramic dripper cup, featured below, can be placed on top of the blender lid opening, and the coffee brewed directly into blender and other ingredients. Paper filters are also needed. See Make Butter Coffee for the setup and instructions.

Hario V60 Ceramic Coffee Dripper (Size 01, White)

Application: Size 01 fits enough grounds for about two mugs of coffee.

Size 02

Application: Size 02 fits enough grounds for about four mugs of coffee. Officially it’s 3 cups, but I stretch it with more grounds and careful brewing.

Measure.

Duration of use: 1 year

Features: Light yet sturdy spoons. Shallow bowl fit into small package openings. Easy to clean.

Downside: Ring holding them together was flimsy and came apart. Spoons constantly fell out of ring.

Blend.

Keep.
