Kuju Coffee is Delicious Pour-over Coffee Anywhere, Anytime

Pourover coffee is delicious, and really satisfying to make, but it’s not exactly portable. If you’re on the road, or camping, or hell, even at work, you’re likely relegated to drinking instant coffee or overly expensive coffee shop stuff you have little control over. Kuju Coffee changes all that! They created the Pocket Pourover.

The idea came from two brothers who are also Eagle Scouts: Jeff and Justin Wignua, who have a deep love of the outdoors. And coffee. They developed something so simple and so ingenious you’ll wonder why you haven’t been using it forever. Each light, slim package of Kuju Coffee contains the coffee and their small pour-over mechanism. With a bit of hot water and a few minutes, you have a freshly brewed cup of coffee with all the delicacy and control pour-overs allow.

Kuju’s coffee comes in three varieties: Bold Awakening, Base Camp, and Angels Landing. The darkest is the Bold Awakening, which has low acidity and a full body, with flavors like dark cocoa and dried berries. It’s roasted in small batches and can handle even less than perfect water temperatures without sacrificing taste of consistency. Base Camp is the middle of the road for Kuju: it’s medium acidity with a full body and flavors like honey, chocolate, and surprisingly, oak. It’s made up of a blend of Direct Trade Arabica beans. And finally you’ve got their Angels Landing, which as the name suggests, is on the lighter, sweeter side. It’s floral, nutty, and citrusy, making it a great option if tea just isn’t cutting it for you at the moment.

All of Kuju’s coffee is conscientiously sourced. They wanted their high-quality coffee to make a positive impact on the world, especially on the farmers growing our beloved coffee. A lot of times this means using farms that the coffee industrial complex has overlooked of various reasons. The Wignua brothers found a farm in Thailand that employs former sex trafficking victims where they get the majority of their beans.

Our national parks also benefit thanks to Kuju. The outdoors is a passion for the Wignua brothers and is partly responsible for their invention, so it’s no surprise they’re working to protect it. One percent from each purchase of Kuju goes directly to the National Park Foundation.

When you drink Kuju Coffee you’re not just getting a perfect, delicious pourover coffee literally anywhere– you’re helping people live better lives and protecting our vital national parks.

Ninja Espresso & Coffee Barista System -- $180, was $250

Ninja is a big name in the small appliance world, and while you may think of it when it comes to air fryers, it also makes fantastic coffee with the Ninja Espresso & Coffee Barista System. The system is designed to do everything you could want. It’s able to brew more than just a standard espresso shot as it offers four distinct styles. You can brew a 40ml standard shot but then move up to a Lungo for a larger and less concentrated shot of 110ml while there’s an espresso shot over ice, and the exclusive Ristretto which is 25ml so you get a much more concentrated shot.

Knob Creek

The two classic styles of American whiskey are bourbon and rye, so what happens when you combine the two? A new release from Knob Creek aims to examine that question by taking the brand's well known classic bourbon and blending it with straight rye whiskey.

The Knob Creek Bourbon x Rye Kentucky Blended Straight Whiskey is a limited edition release which will use two of the brand's existing spirits in combination, coming in at 113 proof. It has the spicy notes of rye along with the sweet notes of bourbon, making for a whisky with aromas of sweet maple and vanilla and flavors of brown sweets and fruit. It is suitable for sipping neat or for mixing into cocktails, the brand says.

Simona Tabasco’s spicy, refreshing vermouth spritz
The White Lotus star worked with mixologist Maura Milia on the spritz recipe

White Lotus star and Italian icon Simona Tabasco hails from Naples, but she's been down to Sicily to drink aperitivo and to share a favorite cocktail recipe. Sicily is not only where White Lotus was filmed, but is also a enthusiastic home of aperitivo culture, with Sicilians getting together in the late afternoon or early evening to share a light drink before dinner. Drinks like spritzes, amaros, and vermouths are popular and are typically drunk along with small snacks like bruschetta or olives to get ready for the big meal to come.

Tabasco has teamed up with the brand Martini to create a light spritz using white vermouth, which is more dry and crisp that it better-known red counterpart. If you've only ever tried dry vermouth in a martini then it's worth trying in other drinks too, as it has some of the tartness and sharpness of a good white wine but plenty of sweetness too, giving it a thicker, heavier texture that works well in cocktails.
