Espresso Coffee: The Science of Quality is by Rinantonio Viani of Nestle Research Laboratories in Switzerland and Andreas Illy of Illycafe and Nestle. This is the hardcover, rewritten Second Edition of the famous Espresso Coffee: The Chemistry of Quality. Famous? Well, among home roasters it is, because there are just too many "coffee recipe" and hokey espresso cookbooks out there ... and this book is 180 degrees opposite.Learn More$90.00

12/16 Update: There is a new shipment arriving at the port this week, but due to the high volume of shipments moving through the port and a worker slowdown at port the shipment to our warehouse may be delayed.

The BonaVita Porcelain Immersion Filtercone is a porcelain dripper with a switch-operated stopper at the bottom. The base is plastic (clamped to the porcelain with screws) and the stopper is silicone. It's dishwasher-safe. If the coffee mug or cup you are brewing into has a minimum opening diameter between 2.5" and 3.75", then this filtercone will perch on it just fine.
It uses #4 filters and brews about 16 oz of brewed coffee.Learn More$40.00
Batteries last a long time in Jennings CJ series scales but when they finally run out of juice, you can get one of these. Plugging your scale in is good if it lives on your counter and you don't want to worry about your batteries dying on you. This works with the Jennings CJ-300, CJ-600 and CJ-4000 scales. 120v 60hzLearn More$6.00
These kettles are great for cupping sessions, and daily coffee brewing. They are remarkably fast at bringing the water to near boil temperature...perfect for French Press brewing or pour-over type brewing. The heating speed is due to an oversized stainless steel heating coil in the carafe. Once the water is ready to go, you have the convenience of the cordless feature. Well...there is a cord but the carafe separates from the base for service.Learn More$50.00

This grinder is new, but the heads of the screws that hold the top plate in place are stripped. This doesn't affect the grinding at all but it might make it hard to take it apart if you need to for some reason.
The Zassenhaus knee mill is a hand-powered grinder featuring the same grinding mechanism as the Box mill with an obvious improvement: the narrower profile and indentations in the side allow you to hold the grinder between your knees while sitting. This is handy when you grinding at a fine setting, when there is more resistance.This model is narrower than the Box Mill but has more depth; the drawer holds enough coffee for a 6 cup pot. The beans enter the mill through a spring-loaded rectangular door on the top of the mill.
A bonus on this mill is that the upper bean hopper is lined with a white porcelain or porcelain-like material. Like the other Zassenhaus mills, the fineness of the grind is set by turning a knurled nut on the handle shaft. It creates wonderfully consistent grinds for all methods of brewing.Mahogany features gold-toned hardware. Beech finish has chrome hardware. 3.5" w x 5.5"l x 8"h See our FAQ on Zassenhaus mills for more information.
If you are roasting a lot or cupping, this flexible plastic tray will make your roasting experience more enjoyable. There's a reason why these are standard in cupping labs. The main function is it's ability to fold down the center without it cracking. This makes it easy to funnel roasted or green coffee into bags or into your roast chamber. Anyone who has ever tried to pour roasted coffee from a Behmor drum into a coffee bag will understand. If you are setting up cupping sessions, these trays are a great way to display coffee.
We aren't saying that these are a mandatory home roasting item. Actually, we think cheap-o deli tubs work good too but these trays are built to last, look great and are a great all-purpose coffee tool.Learn More
