20 Major Launches in 2023 for Manual, Drip and Espresso at Home

New Home Coffee Equipment 2023

For people interested in new equipment for brewing coffee at home, 2023 saw a fascinating mix of all-new devices and novel updates to long-established forms and methods.

Classics such as the ibrik, the South Indian filter, Chemex and stovetop moka pot were all reinvented in some way, while striving to meet contemporary standards for precision and quality.  Among newer types of manual brewers, the recent trend in “zero bypass” brewing saw multiple new entrants in 2023.

Meanwhile, for both filter brew and espresso preparation, home brewers were presented a range of options for data collection and automation, reflecting the broader movement towards technology in coffee making.

We still have several reports in the works. Stay tuned for upcoming DCN stories on late-2023 releases such as the Slingshot Chalice dosing and distribution tool, the Barista Hustle Autocomb WDT tool, and a unique manual brewing device by Weber Workshops called Bird.

Continuing our 2023 Year in Review, here’s a look back at some exciting developments in home espresso and drip coffee brewing.
