Prismo: Superpowers for your AeroPress®

By | Coffee, Design

 

Meet Prismo, an AeroPress® attachment that unlocks espresso-style coffee without an espresso machine.

We here at Fellow love espresso, but sometimes we don’t have access to a good espresso machine, and the team is left to walk to the nearest coffee shop. Since we’re a coffee product company (and that coffee shop is over a mile away), we figured we should probably solve this problem. Read More

The Anatomy of an “Espresso-style” shot

By | Coffee

So when you pull a shot with Prismo, why call it “espresso-style” instead of just an espresso shot? Well friends, a leopard can’t change its spots. Although Prismo makes a pretty damn tasty shot, it lacks some of the features that make up a tried and true espresso shot. The magic of a traditional espresso comes with 9 bar pressure, 25-30 seconds of percolation time, and the right amount of  heat. All of which are difficult to achieve when manually pressing a shot.

That said, we love the espresso-style shots we’ve made with Prismo! And hey, for a much lower price point than an espresso machine, you can get close and have fun doing so. So what is “espresso-style”? Let’s break it down:

WHY DOUBLE WALL INSULATION?

By | Coffee

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.

This week we’re launching our newest pour-over dripper, Stagg [X]. The first obvious difference you might notice between Stagg [X] and our original dripper Stagg [XF] is size, but there’s a whole lot more to love about our new dripper.

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.

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.

So let’s break down everything you need to know for the perfect coffee to water brew ratio.
