I saw the video.  First, I HATE how some coffee manufacturers abuse the term "Crema".  The manufacturer of this new coffee maker sure does.  Second, I have reservations on using steam on coffee grounds.  Seems to me it would be detrimental to the "not over 205" degrees issue when brewing coffee.

On the positive side I kind of liked how the brew mixing was done as part of the brewing process.

At least they picked a catchy name, getting in on the "i-(name of product)" bandwagon.  GOod luck!



MrMike Said:

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

Congrats, seems you've unlocked an unprecedented level of anger, by referencing the iCoffee.  IDK that I've ever seen it get this mad, this fast in here.

My favorite in this category is the iPood! (which looks the same upside down), a small shovel for backpackers for digging a cathole.
Apple finally stepped in and forced a name change for that one.

Then there was a restaurant chain called "McSushi" which McDonalds (the makers of McWrap) very quickly stopped -- now it's "We Be Sushi".

What really strikes a wrong note is the sales pitch videos.  There's another one on Youtube.  They sound like gizmo salesmen you'd see on some late night TV ad, selectively criticizing other brewing methods, and making bizarre claims about their machine.  They're obviously not aiming those pitches at coffee geeks, but it does have some unique and potentially interesting characteristics for a drip brewer.  The proof will be in the taste.

Are you saying you have done taste comparisons of it against the Technivorm and Bonavita coffee makers?

coffeeroasters club,,,

Yes I own a technivorm for about 3 years now..i recently got the bona vita machines for wife in apt in the city...and I currently have the bunn trifecta machine...The technivorm and bona make excellent coffee also. The problem with the technivorm is unless you stand there and swirl the water over the beans as its coming out..i find at times all the grounds dont get equally saturated..as far as the taste is concerned..beliieve it or not..the coffee brewed from this machine..is high end restaurant quality and is smoother in my opinion than the technivorm. remember this is only an opinion..i dont work for them, i have no affiliation with icoffee...I've made coffee for some friends and they all agree....and this machine cost me almost 1 /3 of what the technivorm costs..now dont get me wrong i have no plans on getting rid of it..but this spins the grounds around and around..so all flavor is extracted..with no bitterness..and very smooth. hope that answers your question.
