Pour Over Coffee Maker by Kitchables

Product Review

Johnny & I L-O-V-E coffee, there is no doubt about it. Since I love to roast in-season coffee beans, I always enjoy trying the different brewing techniques available. It's great to go out and grab a cup with friends or when heading into work. At times...it's nice to brew, sit and enjoy your favorite roasted beans at home. 

We enjoy the wide variety of ways to brew coffee from French Press, Pour Over or AeroRress to Clever Dripper or Moka Pot...we enjoy it all. 

We decided to try out a Pour Over from Kitchables to see how it works and share our thoughts. We put together a video (about 6 minutes) that goes into detail about the product. This is a raw video...nothing fancy, just the facts! LOL So forgive the editing and special effects. To view...click below and enjoy.


If you would like the quick lowdown, here it is;

  • Stainless steel-keeps water at optimal temperature
  • Made with a perforated outer cone and a fine mesh on the inside of cone for a great filtered cup of coffee with little or no residue
  • Seemed to pour through quickly (quick for me) however, the taste was rich and clean
  • Cup stayed hot (I LOVE hot hot coffee)
  • Clean up was a breeze. The grounds seemed to slip off the fine mesh. 
  • The taste was great (Lolita's Blend- yes shameless plug). No residue at bottom of cup. 

What's great is that you can make a  single cup or 2-4 cups (depending on the size you buy) as quick as it is to heat water. Simple and you can take it with you to work, camping etc.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte...Crock Pot Style

The holidays are here!!! Cooler temps in the morning (at least that is what we have in Arizona). Thanksgiving is here and spending time with family & friends at home is upon us. 

So many styles of crock pots available.  

So many styles of crock pots available.  

A time to be thankful. Thankful for your health, thankful for being with loved ones and thankful for all the blessing we have received this year.  

My whole purpose about what I do with my coffee, sweets and gifts is enjoying and entertaining at home. And now...this is the perfect time of year with family and friends getting together for the holidays. 

So what better time to share a great and easy recipe for your guests when they arrive....to walk in to a wonderful smell of spices wafting through the air. What's even better, you can make it ahead since you will slow cook in a crock pot. A Pumkin Spiced Latte. Here's the ingredients and directions on making this great tasting hot cup of spiced love (wink wink smiley face). 

Pumpkin Spiced Latte-Crock Pot Style


  • 6 cups of whole milk (you can use 2%, soy or almond milk)
  • 6 cups of strongly brewed coffee (Johnny Lolita's Brazil Dark or Lolita's Blend would be awesome) 
  • 1/2 cup of Pumkin purée  
  • 1/4-1/2 cup of sugar ( depending on how sweet you want it)  
  • 2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 3 cinnamon sticks  


  • Combine coffee and milk in your crockpot.
  • in a separate bowl, whisk/whip together the pumpkin, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and pour into crockpot. 
  • Mix all ingredients well.
  • Add the cinnamon sticks. 
  • Cover the crockpot and cook on high for 2 hours. If it seems like it's been boiling for a long time reduce the heat. 
  • Ready to serve and enjoy. 

This recipe will serve 15+ people. For the adults you can offer your favorite liquor to their spiced latte.

If you try this recipe, let me know how you served it and if you added additional "spirits". I would not suggest you save leftovers and re-heat. It will not keep and the coffee with the milk and spices will NOT taste good reheated.  

I know this recipe is NOT for the coffee purist. I know you wish to smack my hand to even offer up this recipe. My thought is that you should enjoy your coffee, however you like to. If it's with cream, just sugar, honey etc. enjoy it your way. A wonderful way to serve lots of people.

So set up a small bar off to the side so people can serve themselves. Add regular coffee & decaf via coffee pot or create a small pou over station. Now....you can concentrate on getting your side dishes and turkey ready for the group.

I roast coffee twice a week and deliver and/or ship the following day. I would L❤️VE to roast your next order. AND....make a delicious sweet/treat and deliver locally to your home or office.
