For those of you that know me, you know that I can't start my daily routine without a great cup of coffee. I recently had the chance to test out a new coffee brewing system called iCoffee by Remington. iCoffee offers SteamBrew technology that consists of 6 rotational hot water jets, a brew-viewing window where you can actually see the magic happening and gold-tone filtration. Throw in the fact that it's 24-hour programmable, has automatic shut-off with a 2-hour "keep warm" feature and rich coffee crèma extraction that can be seen forming in the exclusive Brew Window.
What is SteamBrew Technology, you ask? With SteamBrew "the coffee is pre-steamed to evenly apply proper moisture and heat. Like steaming vegetables to unlock nutrition and flavor, iCofffee uses the benefits of steam to open up and fully release only the non-bitter, non-acidic, exquisitely smooth coffee flavors" - iCoffee The Story
Here is a video demonstrating the SteamBrew process that iCoffee offers:
I had a lot of fun playing with my new iCoffee brewer. I love trying new toys for my kitchen and I have to say that the Brew-Viewing Window is entertaining. My kids keep asking me if I'm going to make more coffee just so they can gather around the iCoffee and watch it brew. They seem to enjoy all of the bells and whistles as much as I do.
I am the only person in my home that drinks coffee to function so for me the single brewer is faster and I don't have to clean-up after. When I need to brew coffee for guests or family then I would definitely use the iCoffee because I think my guests would really enjoy the smooth taste from the SteamBrew process. I also think my guests would like to watch the 6 water jets in action!
Disclosure: I was not compensated for this post. I was offered an iCoffee in order to facilitate my review. These are just my two cents!
