Enter : iCoffee Brewing System Giveaway

 
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.

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.

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.

    I learned: Since iCoffee only works with our premium goldtone filter, we have created an optional filter that provides a paper filter experience if you prefer less finely extracted coffee essence. If your iCoffee didn't come with this optional filter, you can order one using the replacement parts order form on our website. We'll send you one at our expense.
