No one wants to admit it, but we are spiraling ever closer to the final week of August and thus, the first week of school. Whether you’re a parent with kids in school, a college student with a full schedule, or a grad student just trying to make it through the day, we all need that extra boost in the morning.
As someone heading back to school this fall too, I know my habits: roll out of bed, crawl to the kitchen, make the quickest coffee I can, and swallow it whole in one gulp. Let’s up that a notch with gorgeous French presses, freshly ground coffee, and delicious Barrie House roasts.
French Presses open up a world of options for your morning coffee, whether you want a quick cup or to experiment with some more time-intensive recipes. You don’t need a fancy grinder, as the coffee should be coarse and not espresso-fine. You can simply pour in the boiling water, coffee grounds, and wait a few minutes if that’s your desire, or play around with precise temperatures to brew an even better cup!
The Espro P5 French Press is as beautiful as it is efficient. Plus, it is one of the most user-friendly coffee presses available, with double mesh filters to promise grit and grinds-free coffee and precise extractions. The glass itself is 40 percent thicker, allowing the device to maintain heat longer and increasing durability. Having a 32oz capacity also means the Espro P5 Press is perfect for serving three to four people.

Moka Pots take some more time on the stovetop, but can easily be adapted to make espresso or strong cups of coffee. Not to mention there’s a romanticism in hearing flames awake under the aluminum pots, waiting for the first signs of coffee to bubble over.
We love the Bialetti Mukka (“Moo-ka”) Pot because it gives you the best of both worlds: frothed milk for cappuccinos and lattes, and their delicious moka coffee. All it takes is 5.4oz of water added to the base, 18g of fine ground coffee in the basket, and 7oz your preferred milk in the upper chamber. Simply put on the stove andvoilà! You have a creamy latte or decadent cappuccino for your enjoyment.

Just because you are living in a dorm, doesn’t mean you can’t have freshly ground coffee. These grinders are compact and quick, both with conical burrs to help ensure consistent grind size.
The Baratza Encore Coffee Grinder is tall and slim, with 40 degrees of fineness to choose from. In fact, it is quite beloved amongst coarse-brew method enthusiasts everywhere, and is widely hailed as the best burr grinder in its class. You’ve got an 8oz hopper for more than enough coffee beans, and a combination of electric and gear speed reducers to keep grounds cool and avoid static build-up.
The Baratza Encore is a 40mm conical burr grinder that’s adjustable across 40 degrees of fineness. Its high-torque motor quietly spins the burrs at a low speed of 450 RPM to remove heat and static from the grounds. The versatile Encore is a favorite of ours, and a great value.
The Capresso Infinity Plus is a less expensive option with a solid, sturdy body and 16 grind settings for brew methods ranging from Turkish coffee to French press. Its main difference from the Baratza Encore grinder comes in the form of less grind setting options, but the Capresso still gives users the precision they need. The Capresso also has a gear reduction motor for precise and controlled grinding, and can automatically grind for 1-12 cups of coffee.
Once you have your grinder all set and ready to go, you need coffee. Good coffee. Coffee that makes you excited to wake up each morning and get ready for class or work, or both. We have two Barrie House options for you here, but truly any of their blends are a good choice.
Salted Caramel is a decadent coffee flavor. This Barrie House blend is made with 100 percent Fair Trade Organic Arabica beans. When brewed, the coffee has a strong caramel flavor twirling with sweet, salty, and buttery notes. This blend is syrupy and smooth.
There’s perhaps nothing more classic than a fresh cup of French vanilla coffee in the morning. And this Barrie House blend gives you all that in a Fair Trade Organic 100 percent Arabica bean blend. This light roast gives off notes of honey, vanilla, and toasted almonds for a delightful drink.
While going back to school means early mornings, it also means remembering why you love coffee. So why not make that routine special with new items? With these products, you can bring specialty brewing to late night, caffeine-fueled studying. And as those late nights into early mornings become commonplace again, we’ve got the coffee, grinders, and makers for you to get up and take on the day.
