Melitta Ready Set Joe – Single Cup Coffee Brewer

Any Coffee lover who doesn’t have a Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer is missing out. As long as you have hot water you can have a fast delicious cup of coffee in minutes. I don’t always like to committ to a full pot of any one coffee and with this device I don’t have to. Considering you can get one of these for about the price of a Latte, it’s a an easy decision to have one in the cabinet.

I know a lot of coffee purest who swear by press pots, I love a good press pot too, but it’s not the right solution for every coffee. The Melitta Ready Set Joe Single Cup Coffee Brewer is the best of both worlds. You get the convenience of a single cup with taste profile of a coffee pot, also clean up is easier than both.

If you get a chance you should also try Melitta’s packaged coffees. They are extremely affordable and have a mild taste, suited to any coffee drinker. They also have some more of the popular flavored coffee selections.

Overall, the Melitta products are affordable and tailored to anyone from a coffee novice to a coffee expert.

Go Green With Your Coffee Brewer

We are all looking to Go Green for the environment. Hourglass has created a new coffee maker to help us do just that. The catch? It uses no electricity.

The Hourglass Cold Brew Coffee Maker looks sharp with its hourglass design. Its very easy on the eyes, and on your electric bill. Its easy on the back too, weighing only 2.8lbs.

The high heat and fast brew times of hot brew coffee makers can create bitter tasting coffee that’s often high in acid, causing stomach aches. Hourglass coffee maker solves this problem, with cold-brewing. Because the coffee beans are not exposed to heat, bitter acids and oils are not released. Hourglass claims that this brewing process results in 69.6% less acid than hot brewed coffee.

Centuries ago, native cultures perfected the art of coffee making. These ancient coffee connoisseurs hand-selected the best beans, dried them in the sun, coarsely ground them, and soaked them overnight in pure, cold water to produce a rich and smooth tasting coffee extract. The Hourglass coffee maker brings the Lost Art of cold brewing into the 21st century, and into your home.

Aerobie Aeropress Coffee & Espresso Maker Review

The Aerobie Aeropres is a single cut coffee & espresso maker. It
The coffee is micro-filtered. It so pure and particle-free that it can be stored for days as a concentrate. The concentrate can be drunk as espresso, mixed with milk for lattes, or diluted to make American coffee.  

Its easy to use and clean, which is a must!  It also makes your espresso and coffee taste great!  Also, you cannot beat the price. Total immersion of the grounds in the water results in rapid yet robust extraction of flavor and allows for a moderate temperature, which results in a smoother brew. The air pressure, created by the plunger, shortens filtering time to approximately 20 seconds. This avoids the bitter taste associated with the long process of traditional drip brewing. The air pressure squeezes the last goodness from the grounds, enriching the flavor of the coffee. Due to the lower temperature and shorter brewing time, the acid level of the coffee is much lower than traditional brewers. Aeropress released laboratory pH testing results which measured the brew’s acid as less than one fifth that of regular drip brew. The low acid is confirmed by coffee drinkers of the product who confirmed that coffee  made with the Aeropress was much friendlier to their stomachs.

The Aeropress is slightly more time-consuming for the user than traditional french press or drip coffee makers.  It takes about the same amount of time as a standard espresso machine.

Zojirushi Fresh Brew Review

Zojirushi Fresh Brew coffee maker is unmistakeably sleek.  But, is it as good for your your coffee fix as it is for your eyes?  We have reviewed this product and found that is delivers, despite a few setbacks.

Zojirushi features a large carafe and keeps coffee hot and fresh.  It is easy to use.  It is also easy to clean, which is a must in my book and it runs quietly, also a plus.   

On the downside, the controls are on the side instead of the front, which takes a little getting used to.  It also brews a larger quantity as opposed to the one pot brewers.    The spout is small.  The carafe lid is secure but the one we tried  was also a little hard to unscrew.   

All in all, we found this coffee maker to be well worth the money
spent, especially for those on a budget.
