Making better coffee and having a great experience with your love for coffee definitely requires the right accessories to achieve that. To get serious about it, there are accessories that you cannot go without and this article will give you a run down of those Top 5 essentials.
The evolution of coffee making
You may wonder, what’s the big deal about “coffee accessories”? Well, to us, it’s not just coffee and it’s not just accessories. With our vast experience, you will know that one thing about us is providing you with superior products and outstanding service and where else can that begin if not in our Willow Brew home?
For years, coffee has been made manually through the simple methods of crushing beans and putting the ground beans in hot water to make the perfect brew. Even though the traditional ways of coffee-making are still kept in some parts of the world, it is now highly linked to machinery and use of accessories.
Sure, we could argue that the rise and focus of coffee accessories and equipment is intentional. It speaks to the needs of people who are always on the go and would like to have their fix of java at their convenience.
Coffee accessories and equipment-WHY?
And so, as true coffee connoisseurs and enthusiasts, ours is to show you the purpose and reasoning behind why these accessories and equipment are necessary.
Time saving and efficiency- Whether you have a favourite coffee spot or you make your brews at home, we know that it is important to have machinery that is easy to use and maintain.

Coffee Machines- This piece of equipment is a dream to have!With multi-purpose features, you can make the best cups of coffee and still be able to do other things such as bake, warm baby bottles, make soup or grill cheese. Granted, they do come in different variants and specs but with the right skills and maintenance, your coffee machine will always cooperate. Have a look at our selection of coffee machines and see which one you may like.
Moka Pots-Need the right kind of percolation? You can depend on stove-pot Moka Pots to do the job for you and make you the best espresso-like coffee. This accessory uses boiling water to force steam through the coffee grounds,so unlike the coffee press/plunger, it bubbles the coffee up instead of down.
Milk Frothing Pitcher- Cappuccino, Latte or if you are keeping to our Italian coffee, whatever tickles your fancy , a milk frothing pitcher is something you cannot be without. It is a jug used to collect frothed milk before it is poured into the prepared cup of espresso to make one of these coffees. Our 600ml Milk Frothing Pitcher jug can be all yours, just shop with us.
French Press /Plunger- Separating the grounds from your coffee is important and the French press makes this process easier as the use of water allows for it to filter the grounds swiftly and thoroughly. We at Willow Brew recommend that you have one, for quality filtering and even better coffee. Of course, you can shop for ground coffee on our website.
Coffee Grinder- A strong and reliable grinder is one of the most important pieces of coffee gear to have. Not only is it portable but it is spacious enough to keep a larger quantity of coffee. This is great because we have a home starter kit that comes with a Moka Pot and Grinder, the frothing on top is the pack of Mokarabia coffee.
