Brewing coffee is a relatively simple process (add water to grounds) with hundreds of ways to make it more complicated. For true coffee nerds, getting the right filters, grinders, coffee makers, and accessories can be akin to a ritual. But for the rest of us it can feel like a byzantine system that can be just as easily messed up as done successfully.
Even if you are more Mr. Coffee and less hipster barista, you'll want to check out this Coffee Gator sale on Amazon. With products ranging from 30 to 58 percent off, they'll up your coffee game no matter your current skill level.
Our top pick from the sale is the highly-rated and reviewed stainless steel container. Even if you buy your coffee pre-ground, this is a great addition to your coffee storage. The canister boasts a one-way valve that lets CO2 out (part of coffee's natural off-gassing process) but also keeps oxygen from getting in. It also comes with a nifty date wheel that allows you to set the date you bought the coffee (or the expiration date — your call).
The container also has a rubber seal to keep the lid really tight, with an easy-to-use stainless steel clasp. The colorful, stainless steel containers also protect coffee from another natural enemy: sunlight.
Even if you're just using a regular drip brewer, your coffee will taste fresher and brighter longer thanks to this simple addition to your counter.
Also on sale: Coffee Gator's single-serve pour over brewer, which, while not as attractive as a classic Chemex, is perfect for single-serve and never needs filters. Typically $40, you can get it for $20 — for a limited time.
If you prefer to make your coffee with a French press, Coffee Gator's is now 55 percent off, bringing it to just $27. Again, what Coffee Gator lacks in flair it makes up for in design: The body of the press itself isn't making our hearts pitter-patter, but the insulated design (which is stainless steel) keeps your coffee warmer for longer.
