iCoffee Pot Giveaway

Posted on Jan 23 2014 - 12:01am by Susan Bewley

 

Remington introduces iCoffee, the first new coffee brewing technology in over 50 years.
According to inventor Bruce Burrows, iCoffee took seven years and over 1,257 prototypes to perfect. iCoffee’s patented SteamBrew™ technology makes it the first coffee brewer ever to utilize steam jets inside the coffee brew basket. The SteamBrew™ jets first pre-steam the coffee and then stir the coffee throughout the brewing process so each of the coffee grounds is completely suspended and surrounded by hot water at the perfect brewing temperature. Next, a rich coffee crema forms, indicating the elimination of bitter and acidic aftertastes.

“What we’ve done is redefine coffee making,” said Burrows. “The ‘i’ in iCoffee stands for innovation, which is what we strive for in all our products. With iCoffee, we’ve found a way to use all the goodness of steam to release the locked-in flavors of your favorite coffee grounds, just like steaming rice and vegetables. This eliminates any bitterness and the result is impossibly smooth tasting coffee. There’s never been a machine in coffee brewing history that uses this technology. The difference in taste is unprecedented.”

iCoffee also features an exclusive brew viewing window, which allows coffee lovers to watch the SteamBrew™ process in action, including the formation of rich coffee crema.

According to Burrows, because SteamBrew™ technology enables maximum flavor extraction, users should experiment to determine the optimal ratio of water to coffee they prefer. “For the first pot, we suggest using the amount of coffee you normally add per cup when brewing. After the first pot, you can adjust the amount of coffee used by adding more or using less coffee in the SteamBrew™ basket to achieve the strength and flavor you prefer. Many people find they need less coffee than they did when using other coffee brewers.”

Burrows also notes that with iCoffee, finely extracted coffee essence, or sediment, may be visible after brewing. “This is normal and a result of our patented SteamBrew™ extraction technology,” he says. “Presently, coffee drinkers have a choice of using a reusable goldtone filter or disposable paper filters. Goldtone allows more coffee essence, paper allows less. It’s a matter of personal preference. If you prefer less finely extracted coffee essence, we have included an optional filter that provides a paper filter experience.”

iCoffee is available in more than 800 retail locations in the U.S., including major national chain stores, local independent retailers, Home Shopping Network and online via www.icoffee.com.

Over the years, Remington branded percolators and drip brewers have been marketed. In 2005, Remington Designs was formed to develop patented technologies and appliances for the kitchen and home.

 

 

 

My Thoughts

A good brewing system can really make all the difference when you’re looking for the perfect cup of coffee. The iCoffee  uses steam to help you achieve that perfection. The steam works to crack open your favorite coffee grinds to release the actual essence of the coffee. You can actually watch the process of the machine steaming and stirring your coffee through the brewing window and it’s a pretty fascinating process. When it’s finished your coffee will be the smoothest brew you can imagine no matter what brand of bean you prefer. Each pot makes up to twelve perfect cups every time.

The iCoffee has lots of great features in addition to the steam brewing. It has a built in timer so your coffee can be ready and waiting in the morning. You don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn if off before you leave for work because it has an automatic shut off.  The pot offers a dripless spout so there are no leaks. If you want to start pouring before it’s finished brewing (an annoying habit by husband has), the machine will pause instead of dripping all over the counter. It also comes with a premium gold tone filter. This is a great feature because it saves  you money on paper filters and also reduces unnecessary waste.

Sometimes you might notice a fine sentiment when using the gold tone filter. You can use a paper filter if you prefer less sentiment, but it will also decrease the coffee essence so it’s not quite as flavorful. After you play around with it a few times, each person will be able to suit it to their personal taste.

The down sides to the iCoffee are minimal but worth a mention. It does take a little longer to brew than the standard drip pot and it is a little messier to clean up. This doesn’t deter me,  but for those who prefer convenience over quality it is something to consider. Personally, I feel that the iCoffee is worth a little bit of extra effort because the end result is as close to perfection as you can get.
