How We Test, Evaluate, and Rate Coffee Products at Coffeeble

Our Mission

At Coffeeble, we’re committed to helping coffee lovers get smart about coffee. At the heart of this mission is the desire to help our readers make informed decisions when spending money on anything related to coffee.

We meticulously research products, consult with industry experts, and perform hands-on testing in both our Coffeeble Lab and in real-world settings. Our aim is to offer you a comprehensive guide to the best coffee gear, beans and tools available.

Our Testing Process

The only way to truly understand a coffee product’s performance is to put it through its paces. We identify what coffee drinkers are specifically looking for — be it a grinder for a small kitchen, specialty coffee beans, or an espresso machine suitable for a beginner. After sifting through coffee forums, manufacturer specs and user reviews, we select a range of products for rigorous testing.

We acquire the selected products and develop a testing methodology that specifically addresses the key challenges and concerns customers commonly face when making a purchase.

In the Coffeeble Lab

Our Coffeeble Lab is a state-of-the-art facility equipped for evaluating everything from espresso machines to burr grinders and artisan coffee beans. Our team uses standardized methodologies to conduct tests, focusing on key factors like grind uniformity, extraction efficiency, flavor profile, and more. We also employ specialized equipment like refractometers for measuring coffee strength and particle distribution analyzers for grind consistency.

Real-World Testing

Beyond lab tests, we send products to experienced coffee writers and our editorial team for at-home testing. This allows us to assess how these products perform in everyday scenarios, from the unboxing experience to long-term durability and ease of maintenance.
