Other than the coffee you're going to need some cool gear to get you making the best bangers and flatties you've ever had!!
First on the list is a coffee tamper. Once you grind your coffee into your brewing handle, this coffee needs to be flattened and compressed. Otherwise, the water will flow through too fast. Tampers come in a range of shapes and sizes. Use a ruler to measure the top of your metal filter basket and take away around 3-4mm. The most common size is 58mm, so if you measure around this then safest to go with 58mm base.
