About two years ago I interviewed five expert baristas about how they make the perfect cup of coffee using different methods: coffee pot, pour-over, French press and AeroPress. The one thing that tied them all together? They all owned gooseneck kettles.

One of the models they recommended was the Hario Buono Gooseneck Kettle, which is currently 51 percent off on Amazon.

What’s so great about a gooseneck? It’s all about control. Coffee is a science, and FYI slopping boiling water from a wide spout onto freshly ground beans is ruining your morning cup. With this Hario model, you can delicately bathe the grounds in your French press, AeroPress, Chemex or other pour-over with perfect concentric circles. If that sounds a little too fussy, well, you’ve probably never had a perfect cup of Chemex coffee.

To that end, you should also add a Chemex glass pour-over coffeemaker and a pack of filters to your cart. I use mine every single morning, and even if you’ve got a go-to coffee pot for daily use, it’s the perfect weekend ritual.
