How to choose the best coffee kettle
Are you a coffee lover looking for a way to make a delicious pour over coffee at home? If yes, then finding a perfect coffee kettle should be your first step. From brewing beginner to coffee expert, a coffee kettle can make all the difference between mediocre and an incredible cup of coffee. Most people think that a kettle is just a kettle, but top-notch pour-over kettles offer many benefits.
Choosing the right coffee kettle
Coffee kettles are generally distinguished by their long, narrow necks, which are also somewhat curved. Kettles with this unique long curved neck are called gooseneck, or sometimes swan-neck kettles. This interesting shaped neck is not just for aesthetic reasons. They allow you to control your water flow while pouring, which means you can be more precise about how your water will move through the coffee grounds. By using this method, you can get a much more even, precise, and flavourful extraction.
A coffee kettle's handle is designed to provide you with a comfortable grip that allows you to pour slowly and steadily. The space between the handle and the body of the kettle is carefully measured to make sure your hand doesn't touch the kettle. Not only does this make for a safer pour, but the added manoeuvrability also makes for greater control of the direction and speed of water flow.
Stainless steel is a popular material used for coffee kettles. It is ideal for keeping the right temperature inside the kettle and is also easy to clean.
