If you have a free hand while brewing coffee here’s a little inspiration to try harder.

Summer time is upon us with all its glory. BBQ’s, block party’s, the beach and traveling. Going away for a vacation can be a breath of fresh air for us all. However if you ever find yourself enjoying vacation but not your morning coffee, here is the fix. After talking with some good friends who love the places they go but not the coffee or espresso they find in shops there, we thought about what you can pack to help make your morning coffee as fantastic as the enjoying the sunrise on vacation.

First having a grinder is key to keeping whole beans and ensuring freshness. We sell YAMA ($25) and HARIO ($35) handgrinders that use burrs and work very well. Next, get your brew device. We sell a Chemex kit (includes kettle, filters, bag of beans and chemex $75) and aeropress. Since it is hot, cold brewing the coffee will be an easy way to also provide coffee for all your loved ones with you. 

Next, get some great beans. You can find these beans from us currently:

Last night, we hosted this month’s Thursday Night Throwdown, a latte art competition where baristas from around the city joined together to compete for a cash prize. Twenty talented people brought their best hearts, rosettas, and tulips. During the competition, everyone in attendance enjoyed Iron Hill Brewery’s Greenstreet Brown Ale which is made using our Ethiopian Kochere coffee. We just want to thank everyone who came out to compete or support. It was a great night for all!image
