I know Valentine’s Day is cheesy + silly + essentially created by Hallmark but it is also fun to indulge in the love! In honor of that love, come by the shop TODAY because on this Valentine’s Day Argonaut has made you donuts; a little sweetness 'cause we’re so sweet on you!
This year, we want to share our top 14 coffee things, the things we love the most and use everyday at the shop but conveniently can also be used in your home for your own coffee brewing delight!
The Kalita Wave is, in our opinion, the ultimate home, single brew, pour-over. It gives you a well rounded flavor, showcasing the best of what your beans have to offer. Don’t forget the filters and Hario Electric Brewer. This brewer gives you the best pour with its goose-neck spout. If you are looking to hone in your coffee tasting experience we recommend investing in a kitchen scale to get the job done.
When brewing in your home, or anywhere for that matter it is important to get your priorities straight and don’t mess around- you need a Lucky Cat to ensure none of that bad luck seeps in.
For your garnishes we always have our trusty Kuhn Rikon peeler and Microplane Spice Grater (mini) within hands reach!
The best way to enjoy your freshly brewed coffee is of course in a mug by MF Pottery! They’re made here in town and are simply the best! If you are opting for a smaller version, using an Aeropress or home espresso machine and prefer an espresso or macchiato, notNeutral makes a heck of an espresso cup! And, don’t forget your demitasse spoon.
Of course, we have to say your cup of coffee can only be as good as the beans you brewed- stick with the always good, Blue Star Coffee, or for your more adventurous mornings, Lookout Coffee, roasted right here in Leavenworth!
Last, but certainly not least, you must always give heart when making coffee. If you don’t care, your coffee will never be as good as if you do. But, if you want someone else to do that last part just come down to Argonaut where we always serve coffee with all of our heart.
Love you guys + Happy Valentine’s Day!
