WHAT IS GEAR?
We want you to have the best cup of coffee or tea, so we spend a lot of time finding and sourcing the best coffees and teas. But that's only the first part of getting you a great cup. When preparing your tea or coffee taste adventure, you need the right equipment. We call anything that you might use to store, prepare or serve coffee or tea your “gear.”
How do we find the best tea and coffee gear to further enhance your flavor experiences? We ask ourselves: Is it fast, foolproof, will it last, does it make you more mindful, and is it art?
Form and function are what we look for in each category:
Storage: Both tea and coffee should be stored away from air, light, and moisture. That's important for product freshness, and why we store and ship both coffee and tea in sealed, air-tight packaging. We recommend you do the same at home.
Preparation: Temperature, timing and quantity - as well as the quality of the water and what you add to it - are all critical factors in making a great cup. So is how much time you have to spend. Let us help.
Serving: There are many ways to serve coffee and tea, and most are very personal to who's using it. So we share with you what's personally best for us.
With over 25 years of experience selling tea and coffee gear, we carefully test and evaluate each item for form, function and value before offering it to you. Our coffee and tea gear ranges from quick-and-easy makers to hand-made tea bowls that help you slow down and “be in the moment.” Let us help you find the right tea and coffee gear for your daily beverage ritual or for a very special occasion.
