Coffee has always been a part of my everyday routine. I love drinking coffee because it helps me stay awake when I need to work late and I just love its taste. Oftentimes I do get overboard and my stomach sometimes complains about it. But no matter, I’m still drinking the stuff and looking for that great coffee experience.
A few posts back I talked about the CBTL Kaldi Machine, a single serve coffee machine that is perfect for brewing coffee by the cup, which eliminates excess coffee brewed that only gets thrown away in the end. Now I’ve discovered another coffee making gadget that looks like another great investment for coffee lovers. Hammacher Schlemmer has made available a coffee maker that eliminates the bitterness from coffee. This bitterness eliminating coffee maker looks just like a regular coffeemaker except for the digital controls that won’t look too out of place in a tricked out kitchen. What this coffee maker does is to brew coffee at an extremely hot 200 degrees Fahrenheit. This is called the brewing point for coffee, the temperature that baristas prefer when brewing. At this extremely hot temperature the bitterness of the coffee beans are eliminated and what is extracted is very rich coffee with real full-bodied flavors. It’s the kind of coffee you love drinking at your favorite coffee shop. Regular coffee makers will start brewing even before the brewing point temperatures are reached, which results in bitter coffee. The coffee carafe can hold an equivalent of 12 cups of coffee so you won’t have to worry about brewing multiple batches when friends come over for coffee. The coffee carafe can also be removed mid brew so you can pour yourself a cup if you can’t wait for it the coffee maker to finish brewing.
This coffee maker also has an LCD panel to allow you to program the machine to start brewing at a set time so you can wake up to a pot of freshly brewed, non-bitter coffee.
