What to buy on AliExpress for delicious coffee

Do you drink coffee? Personally, I can’t imagine my morning without a cup of cappuccino made from freshly roasted Arabica beans. However, before coming to my own coffee maker and specialty coffee, I went through many stages of studying this drink, starting, like many before me, with instant coffee with sugar. Only much later, after going through the stage of the geyser and drip coffee maker, I came to the conclusion that I want my coffee to be as close as possible to what is served in coffee houses. But this requires thorough preparation. It’s good that you won’t have to spend much for this.

You also need to be able to make delicious coffee, and for this you need the right equipment

Manual burr coffee grinder

Coffee lovers should be well aware that at least 50% of success is the right grinder with burrs, which does not cut the grains, but, as it were, grinds them. This is the only way to achieve high-quality and uniform grinding. But good electric grinders cost a lot of money. Hence, we will make do with manual solutions. Moreover, they are no less versatile than automatic ones, and give out different grindings for different cooking methods.

This is one of the best burr grinders at this price point.

This coffee grinder – one of the most profitable for your money: a strong and grippy body, steel millstones that will not be damaged if any pebble gets in your coffee, and a perfectly balanced drive that provides an easy move of the movable mechanism. At the time of publication of the publication, the coffee grinder is on sale without a discount, but I have been watching it for a long time, so I can say that from time to time the seller arranges sales and gives this model for only 2000 rubles.

Price: 2750 rubles (with a promo code)

Reviews from satisfied users speak for themselves:

Inexpensive precision scales

The right grinder is, of course, a good thing. But it is equally important to observe the correct proportions when cooking. No, I’m not forcing you to use a layout set by someone – you are free to decide how many grams of coffee to use for preparation. But, so that the quality of the drink does not suffer from time to time, it is necessary to accurately withstand the gram.

Accurate scales are required to weigh the required volume of coffee.

Only precise scales… Moreover, ordinary kitchen ones most likely will not work. They are not accurate enough, and the result of their measurements can jump by several grams in one direction or another, depending on the location of the weighed product or its density. Therefore, it is best to choose a specialized scale that is accurate enough to measure coffee.

Price: 700 rubles

Electronic balance

In my opinion, an excellent, but inexpensive solution for weighing ground coffee, there will be such a model from Yieryi. The measuring step of these scales is 0.1 grams when weighing products weighing up to 3 kg and 0.5 grams when weighing 5 kg. High accuracy will allow you to maintain the original recipe for making coffee, avoiding errors in gramming, which is important regardless of the method of preparing the drink.

Buy tempera for coffee

If you cook coffee in a carobyou will almost certainly need tempera… This is such a thing for turning loose coffee into a tablet, through which water passes under pressure, extracting all the flavoring substances from it. But since a plastic tamper is usually supplied with a coffee maker, combined with a measuring spoon, advanced users have to buy a tamper on their own.

Tamper is needed for the correct pressing of coffee into a tablet

On Ali, these are literally in bulk. True, it is better not to save on such things and buy the heaviest metal temper that will compress the coffee tablet with high quality. They cost around 500-700 rubles, depending on the materials of execution. Temperas with a wooden handle are more expensive, while those with a plastic one are cheaper. This does not affect the experience of use. But what affects is the size.

Price: 719 rubles

Buy tempera

I recommend buying tempera from the link above. It offers a wide range of models that differ both in appearance and in diameter. After all, you know that the tempera is matched to the diameter of the horn of your coffee maker? As a rule, coffee makers De’Longhi is 51mm… But before buying, I recommend that you clarify in the accompanying documentation. Sometimes there are non-standard horns with a diameter of 52 or 53 mm.

Which pitcher to choose

Another pribluda that almost all coffee lovers need is pitcher… This is the name of the metal milk jug for whipping milk for cappuccino or latte. It is metallic because this way you can effectively control the temperature of milk so as not to overheat it and turn it into boiled with froth and a characteristic unpleasant odor like in kindergarten.

The pitcher is used for frothing milk for a cappuccino

A pitcher is also not a cheap thing, so lay about 350-500 rubles for its purchase. Usually the price depends on the volume. But I do not recommend taking the smallest one. As a rule, it is 150-200 ml. However, do not chase too much, if you are making coffee at the same time for no more than 2-3 people. In this situation, the best option would be 350 ml.

Price: 450 rubles

Buy a pitcher

For myself, I chose such a pitcher. It is inexpensive, and has sufficient volume, and its reviews are good. Don’t be surprised that the pitcher is made of pretty thin metal. This is not foil, but also not a cast iron battery. As I already said, this is necessary for more accurate temperature control, because when whipping, the milk not only froths, but also heats up.

Double bottom cups

Many are accustomed to drink coffee from large mugs, therefore, they are very surprised when a coffee maker or coffee machine pours them only 40-60 ml of espresso. They think that something is wrong with the device and either try to increase the water spill time, spoiling their drink, or making a double or even triple drink, which is also not entirely correct for a competent taste assessment.

It is customary to drink cappuccino in special small-sized cups.

In order not to smudge coffee on the bottom of the large mug in which you usually drink sweet tea with a sausage sandwich, it is better to use other cups. Ali has a large selection of coffee utensils, but I like this option. These are cups made of thick double-layer glass with a volume of 80 ml each, which will allow you to enjoy your favorite drink without burning your hands.

Price: 224r / pc (a set is cheaper)

Buy coffee cups

I do not recommend taking the cups one at a time. Firstly, it is more expensive – individually they cost 224 rubles, and in a set of 4 pieces – only 700. And, secondly, even if you live alone, it is better to have several cups in reserve in case guests will come to drink coffee. It will be inconvenient to pour the drink into beautiful coffee cup only to myself, and to the rest to give the mugs for tea.
