Coffee + Gear

Eight Ounce Coffee Supply has it all! And the best part is (well at least for me) they are located right here in Calgary, AB. But don’t worry they ship across Canada and even to the USA.

If you’re new to the world of coffee, or you’re an all out coffee-nerd you want to pay Eight Ounce a visit. The staff are so friendly, and always happy to help you to learn more about incredible coffee and incredible coffee gear. Their online store is top-notch and really a one-stop shop for everything coffee. 

Their showroom in Calgary is a great place to hangout and talk about/try new coffee gear hitting the market. Often they’ll even make you a coffee while you check out the store. They are also one of the few places in the city that bring in coffee beans from across North-America and oversees for retail. Calgary is lucky to have the Eight Ounce HQ in our city.

Since 1993, Espresso Parts has supplied cafe owners, baristas, and home brewers the best products and service available. They offer an incredible range of products and provide fantastic customer service. They’re located in Lacey, Washington (south of Seattle) and offer incredibly fast domestic shipping & also offer international shipping!

It’s likely safe to say that most people recognize that coffee is comprised of 98% water.

So if what makes up most of your coffee is water, don’t you think you should care as much about it as you do about the coffee you choose to brew? One of the ways you can make a significant difference in the quality of the coffee you’re brewing is to use a mineral pack that you simply add to a 4L (one gallon) bottle of distilled or reverse-osmosis water. This one simple thing makes a world of difference. I have been using Perfect Coffee Water for a few months now and I love it.

So basically, the formula is (BETTER WATER = BETTER TASTING COFFEE). And if you want to get your hands on some Perfect Coffee Water, click the link below and save 15% off your order!

Who doesn’t love freshly roasted coffee delivered to your doorstep each and every month!? This is why I love the Th3rdwave Coffee Club. This carefully curated coffee subscription offers incredible Canadian coffee roasters each and every month and all I have to do to get it is open up my mailbox.

By answering a few simple questions relating to taste appreciation, brew method, roast level, and amount of coffee you usually consume the team at Th3rdwave sets out to create a tailor-made subscription that is perfectly suited to your preferences & needs. I love that they have helped me to discover so many incredible Montreal-based coffee roasters (where they are headquartered) but also seek to share many great roasters from across Canada.

The best thing is, they have an incredible coffee app as well that I have enjoyed making use of over the years. So if you are in the market for a fantastic coffee subscription, give Th3rdwave a try.

The Newton BRUA is an unobtrusive, minimalist manual espresso maker that provides coffee lovers with the ability to create great tasting espresso at home, the office, or wherever you want…that’s the beauty about a portable espresso maker.

I love not only the espresso the BRUA makes, but also how gorgeous it looks on my brew bar. All BRUA’s are hand crafted and assembled in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. You can see and feel the level of care that goes into each and every BRUA. And how gorgeous is that orange colour!? Ok, so it also comes in a stealth looking black, but I’m partial to the orange.

By clicking the link below (or using code COMMONLYCOFFEE) you are able to save 10% off either the BRUA + Wooden Handle Tamper, or BRUA + Disc Tamper. So great tasting espresso, and saving a bit of money, that’s a win-win. Enjoy!

Take a look at my brew-bar and you’ll notice very quickly that much of my gear is from Fellow Products. Fellow is one of the most well-recognized brands in specialty coffee with iconic products like the Stagg EKG Kettle, and the ODE Brew Grinder. These, along with many other products, can be found in cafes, and on kitchen countertops across the planet.

I would love for you to get your hands on some great Fellow gear to begin using in your home, or even in your cafe. The team at Fellow are relentless in their pursuit of designing and building the best gear possible to brew the best coffee imaginable.
