I sat down for a chat with the inventor of BrewCube, here’s what he had to say about why his team created this coffee maker:
“When we set out to create the BrewCube, our goal was to solve the problems we experienced making cold brew coffee at home. Real cold brew takes 18 hours to brew, which means you’re creating a chore for yourself in 18 hours to unstop a messy plug or pull out a filter basket with tiny holes that restrict the water from actually soaking in the coffee. We’re busy people, who has time for that! Wouldn’t this be easier if you could eliminate the chore, eliminate the restrictive filter baskets, and have your cold brew ready when you want it? That’s why we created the full immersion BrewCube with an automatic filter and a timer you can set for the perfect amount of time”
New to cold brew coffee and wondering why it’s taking the world by storm? It’s because when coffee is cold brewed, it has 67% less acid, which means it tastes sweeter and is easier on sensitive stomachs. The longer cold brewing (18 hours) extracts more complex flavors, which coffee connoisseurs love. Cold brewing also extracts fewer fast-degrading compounds from the beans so the coffee stays fresh for 2 weeks. If you’ve ever brewed hot coffee in the morning and tried drinking it in the afternoon, you know what I’m talking about!
Thanks to BrewCube, making a full week’s worth of cold coffee is now just as simple as making hot coffee.
- Automatic timed brewing & filtering– cold brew steeps for 18 hours, now you don’t have to be home to filter it 18 hours later!
- Completely dishwasher safe– coffee grounds are a mess, no more
- Great design– integrated carafe and a lid that seals to both the brew chamber (where the coffee is brewed) & carafe (where the finished coffee is stored)
- Makes a weeks worth of cold brew– stays fresh for 2 weeks
- Stainless steel micro-mesh filter– allows a full immersion brew and is environmentally friendly (lasts for hundreds of uses)
If you love cold brew coffee you definitely want to take a good, hard look at the BrewCube. It’s available on Kickstarter for $69.
