Coffee Brewing Equipment

What Equipment do I need to make coffee at home?

To make the best coffee at home, all you really need at a very basic level is a brewing method, a set of scales and some freshly roasted quality coffee. If you do not have your own grinder, this can be freshly pre-ground for you, but it is worth looking at a hand grinder as an inexpensive option. Freshly ground is always best.

However, if you’re looking to kickstart your coffee journey, you’ll need specific equipment to achieve a delicious cup:

  • A coffee grinder: A good coffee grinder is essential for making great coffee at home. Blade grinders will produce uneven results, so it’s best to invest in a quality burr grinder.
  • A coffee machine: There are many different types of coffee machines on the market, but not all of them will make great coffee. If you’re serious about making excellent coffee at home, consider investing in a quality drip coffee maker or espresso machine.
  • Good quality coffee beans: Of course, obtaining premium-quality and freshly roasted coffee beans is a must. At Iron & Fire, we provide a comprehensive range of speciality coffee.

With these three things, you’ll be well on your way to making great coffee at home!

If you want to develop your understanding of speciality coffee, along with all the kit you need we have brew guides and coffee brewing blogs to help you start your journey. Our coffee selector will also help you choose the right brew for your brewing method and our team are always on hand to help!


If you want to brew high-quality coffee at home, you’ll need the right equipment. Coffee brewing equipment and accessories can help you create the perfect cup.

Benefits of using coffee brewing equipment include:

  • More consistent results: When you use the same coffee brewing equipment each time, you’ll get more consistent results. This is especially important if you’re trying to replicate a specific taste or flavour.
  • Better control over variables: With coffee brewing equipment, you have better control over variables like water temperature and brewing time. This allows you to experiment and find the perfect combination for your coffee.
  • Easier cleaning: Coffee brewing equipment is designed to be easy to clean, so you can keep your coffee tasting fresh.

The type of coffee brewing equipment you’ll need will depend on the type of coffee you want to make. For example, if you want to make espresso, you’ll need an espresso machine. If you want to make drip coffee, you’ll need a pour-over coffee maker such as a V60 or a filter machine. And if you want to cold brew coffee, you’ll need a cold brew system.

No matter what type of coffee you want to make, having the right equipment will help you brew a better cup. So, take the time to choose the perfect coffee brewing equipment for your home. If you’re unsure, get in touch with our friendly experts at Iron & Fire.
