Filters. The middleman between your grinds and your sweet cup of liquid gold. A key piece to the coffee equation that doesn’t get the attention it deserves. Well, that stops today, folks! We’re breaking down the paper filter making process and giving you a deep dive into our new and improved Stagg Dripper Filters.
Recipes, tips and industry happenings.
Here at Fellow, we obsess over temperature and understand how important it is for brewing coffee. That’s why we created two pour-over drippers, Stagg [X] and Stagg [XF] with vacuum insulated double wall stainless steel to help reduce temperature loss during your brew. Obsessive? Yes. Excessive? No.
The thinking: the more control you have over temperature, the more control you have over your extraction.
But how does our double wall insulated stainless steel dripper actually stack up to competing drippers? We’ve run a series of tests comparing Stagg [XF] Dripper to other popular coffee drippers. For the sake of consistency and accuracy, we focused on testing Stagg [XF] versus flat bottom single wall stainless steel drippers. Here’s what we found:
Also known as “popcorn tea” Genmaicha is a green tea blended with brown rice. No, there’s traditionally no popcorn actually in the tea, but this blend is colloquially named popcorn tea for its bits of brown rice that sometimes pop during roasting and look a bit like popcorn.
Since Duo Coffee Steeper’s Kickstarter campaign back in 2014, we’ve tried to keep our backers and fans involved as much as possible in our design process. From Duo to Stagg System, we often send out surveys and invitations to participate in user testing on new products. For our second round on Kickstarter with Stagg EKG our mentality has been no different.
Did you hear the news? On Wednesday, our scrappy little Fellow team pulled off a big Kickstarter launch amidst the Black Friday hustle, Cyber Monday craziness, office Christmas partying, and introducing three new products: Podium Trivet, Junior, and Matte Black Joey.
To say we are exhausted would be an understatement. But that’s what coffee is for, right? Read More
Ahh yes, the golden ratio. The perfect balance between coffee and water for brewing that perfect cup….
One of the biggest barriers to entry we hear when talking to home brewing beginners is knowing the right coffee to water ratio. Especially if you’re leaving the world of Keurig (bless your soul) or trying to cut back on purchasing your daily cup of coffee, learning a new brew method and experimenting with the right recipe seems daunting – and even a waste of good coffee. So let’s break down everything you need to know for the perfect coffee to water brew ratio.
You bought a solid bag of coffee some sunny Saturday afternoon with the intention of brewing before work. As the following weeks unraveled, you neglected that beautiful bag of beans. Next thing you know, your coffee is stale. You don’t want to waste those precious beans but don’t want a cup that tastes like old cigarettes. What to do?
There’s hope! Depending on how old the coffee is, you can actually salvage it into a pretty decent cup with some simple tricks.
Much like wine, coffee comes in a wide variety of flavors. The finished product is greatly affected by plant varietal, processing, roasting, and finally, brewing. Use these tasting tips as a simple way to activate your senses and prompt your brain to smell and taste the different flavors in each cup.
