  • A Look At Braun Coffee Brewers!

    This month we added Braun's SCA rated drip coffee brewers to SCG. These brewers are yet another great option for fans of a classic pot of drip coffee. But what makes them special? Well first, there's that SCA certification. SCA stands for "Specialty Coffee Association." This is a large body that handles a lot of awareness and outreach around specialty coffee. One of the things they do is certify drip brewers capable of producing high quality coffee. This is largely done through maintaining consistent brew temperatures. All of the Braun machines that we now carry also have this SCA certification!

    Let's get into the brewers!

    KF9150

    The KF9150 offers handy features like dedicated over ice brewing and auto-on for your morning coffee fix. It also provides the ability to directly control things like water temperature and brew size. What's more, this brewer even offers a hot water spot. This isn't always the case with drip brewers, and the spout gives you the ability to use the machine for hot chocolate or tea. We love that about it! If there are any caveats, it's that this brewer is a little on the busy side in terms of looks. With that said, smart design features like a removable water tank more than make up for the crowded control panel.

    KF9170SI

    The 9170SI takes a lot of the features of the 9150 and adds a slightly more adaptable frame to the whole package. It retains things like the hot water spout, brewing options, removeable water tanks, and general programmability and combines them with a sleeker look. The 9170SI also includes a goldtone mesh filter, giving you more options for brewing. The only issue here, like with the 9150, is that the number of options can be intimidating at first.

    KF9070

    The KF9070 is still on the way to our site, but it delivers performance and consistency just like its larger siblings. The difference here is removal of the hot water spout and some progamming features for a simpler design and lower price point.

    Whatever machine fits your kitchen best, we're excited to welcome Braun to the SCG family!

  • Introducing: AeroPress Go!

    The AeroPress is one of the most iconic coffee makers of the past decade. A favorite of travelers, explorers, and fans of good coffee everywhere, it's a wonderful device. If you're not familiar, the AeroPress combines aspects of filter brewing, presses, and espresso to create a delicious cup of coffee. What's so ingenious here is how simple it is. To brew you just add coffee and hot water to a brew chamber, let steep, then press the brewed coffee through a filter and into your cup! Lots of tricks like inverting the press, using different ratios, and playing around with grind size are possible. The result is a high quality, easy to use device that you can use just about anywhere. All you need is ground coffee and hot water!

    One of the best aspects of the AeroPress is how portable it is. While plenty of users love it enough to make it their home coffee machine, its portability takes it a step further. This is because, as mentioned above, all you need to use it is some ground coffee and hot water. This makes it a great option for everything from office work and hotel stays to camping and holiday travel. This year though, Aerobie is launching a special new version of the AeroPress that doubles down on portability.

    The AeroPress Go is slim, simple, and stylish. It packs the full AeroPress brewing kit into a tight package that fits in its own storage container. This container even works as a cup! This means you can easily carry the whole brewer and its tools with you wherever you go. We love it for all of the travel options mentioned above. What's more, it's roughly the same price as the original Aeropress. The only substantive difference between the two models is the size. The AeroPress go is a touch smaller, which may put off users who want to brew larger volumes beyond a single cup at a time. With that said, it's very easy to brew a concentrate in the Go, so you can still brew enough coffee for your friends, just make sure to add a bit of water!

    Even better - the Go works with the same filters as the original AeroPress (even the Fellow Prismo  attachment is compatible). This is an exciting product to kick off 2020 with, and we're excited to be able to offer it. Pick one up right here, and take your brewing on the Go!
