About Us

The SCG Mission

We have a simple mission at Seattle Coffee Gear: Helping you make coffee you love.

If you’re familiar with our site, you’ll know we use that line a lot. It’s because, for us, it’s a promise. Coffee is a special beverage, made possible by producers, processors, importers, roasters, equipment manufacturers, baristas, and so many more. It’s our goal to help you find the perfect way to enjoy this wonderful drink that we love so much, whether you’re buying your first Chemex or setting up a brand-new café.

It’s so easy to spend far more than you need experimenting with different methods and coffees. We’re here to provide helpful, unbiased purchasing advice and a welcoming shopping experience from start to finish. Our product pages are built with education in mind, with the goal of helping you understand why one machine might suit you better than another. On the coffee front, we provide detailed tasting notes, descriptions, and staff reviews of a wide range of specialty coffees, as well as a wide selection of classic Italian favorites. We hope that you’ll join us on this great big coffee adventure and let us help you brew your new favorite cup.

What sets Seattle Coffee Gear apart?

  • We're focused on you
    Our approach is to ensure that you find the right product for you. We’d rather help you find the perfect coffee gear with your first order than convince you to spend on equipment that you won’t enjoy. That's why we offer free advice in our Articles & Resources section and on our YouTube channel.
