Has anyone heard of brewing coffee with steam?
Just wondering what everyone thinks of this new method of brewing

Are you the owner or related to the company? haha

It looks interesting....but as a pour over enthusiast I have a lot of issues/questions on the machine (the cheesy video with the music is a little hard to watch =/ some people want acidity in their coffee!)

Steam is basically max temp so why doesn't this overextract in the machine? Also, it looks like some SERIOUS agitation going on in the brewing chamber....I'm curious how this would taste. Maybe I missed it, but what filter is being used?

STEAM!? 212 degrees or more to brew coffee? Did I miss something? I might have missed that day in class...

They state, " I remembered all of the research that proved steaming is the best way to unlock the full flavors of food without destroying all of the nutrients." Not all, just some of them.

"...[the process] allowed the passionate coffee lover a chance to witness the SteamBrew™ process and more importantly see the rich Coffee Crema forming from their favorite coffee."
So now "foam" is "crema"?

Looks like a full immersion method, using "steam" to agitate the grounds. I wonder that temperature it actually brews at. The page read like an ad (which it was) with little real technical info. Should be available for inspection in Seattle next year at the SCAA Exhibition.

Yes, Randy, when your coffee foams it's going to make IMPOSSIBLY SMOOTH TASTE.  

I especially love that, "Rich coffee crema guarantees impossibly smooth taste!"  Barf...  I love guarantees in sales pitches...

As longtime poster Jason B Lewis would say "MODERATOR ALERT, SELF PROMOTER!!"




Edit: hmm, lets see, 1st time poster, rule violation "Probationary Period: If you are a new signup for CoffeeGeek, you cannot promote, endorse, criticise or otherwise post an unsolicited endorsement for any company, product or service in your first five postings."
These folks post once, then disappear.

I sense you're reluctant to contribute $ to the campaign then?

The Steampunk uses steam to heat and agitate the coffee, if I understand that machine correctly.

But this one, I don't know, it just looks and sounds like something for sale on late, late night TV.

This is the first I have seen of 'Indiegogo'.

Like KickStarter, it is a 'crowdfunding' site.  Kickstarter, however, is backed by Amazon.com, who regulates the finances.  I have bought a couple of small items through Kickstarter (yet to be delivered).  

Nevertheless, I have seen some offerings that are highly doubtful (...they won't work...!!) so you gotta shop/support with care.

This new steam brewer:  Who is this guy?  Has he any credibility in the coffee community?
