So you love a good cup of coffee in your favorite coffee shop, but now you want the same quality coffee at home. I’ve got good news for you: while making specialty-grade espresso-based drinks at home is an expensive investment, manual brewing is much more affordable.


So let’s take a look at how to make your very own brew bar. From filter coffee to immersion, this article will cover everything you need to get started. What’s more, I’ll also be sharing with you some tips for achieving great pour over coffee at home. Because let’s be honest, isn’t the first coffee of the day one of the most important?
(Oh, and if you’re wondering where to buy this equipment, most specialty coffee shops have their own retail shelf. Just ask at your local café – and don’t be afraid to ask the barista for some advice, too.)

aeropress – fad or fab?

If having read the linked article above (via Perfect Daily Grind), and you are still unsure about a, let’s face it, pretty substantial investment for home brewing purposes, why not try the Aeropress? Here at Salford Roasters, we have used this smart (and easy to use) device since its inception, to provide an inexpensive (just £27.99!) cup of Joe. Listen, it isn’t going to give you the full bodied and bold espresso you might get at your local coffee shop, but it will give you a fab coffee, full of flavour. What’s more, you can pop it in your bag and take it to the office! We can grind your coffee purchase perfectly for this brewer, and let you know the Coffee Perfection recipe …

Since our establishment in late 2016, we are often asked about or branding, and indeed the ‘Picasso style’ logo. This is our version of the ‘Salfordian Emblem’ – Northern folk, relaxing, chatting, socialising, playing and listening to music, all over a good cup of coffee. Yes, coffee is the new ale, you better believe it! 


So, whether that’s a V60, Aeropress or the trusted Cafetiere or filter machine, make sure you start your morning off with Salford Roasters. Our aim is Coffee Perfection, and we won’t settle for anything less. Get in touch to let us know how you brew your coffee at home, and post your recipe tips below!
