Give Me My iCoffee! {review}

**Thanks to the PR firm, who supplied the item to facilitate this review. I wasn't compensated in any way. In this post I share my thoughts and opinions of the items mentioned. Others may have a different experience or opinion.**

If you can't tell by the name of my blog, I drink coffee...lots of coffee. And? I like to join in on that American attitude of "Who has time to wait?" from time to I decided to fall for a single cup coffee brewer. 


I recently encountered a coffee brewer that has literally changed everything for me. And I may never go back. {Yes, seriously}

Allow me to introduce you to the iCoffee brewer. This is a product of many years of hard work and fine tuning but it's almost ready to make its way to your local store. Yes, the box says "SteamBrew". If you're like me, I was a little confused by what this meant as well but it's pretty simple. 

In my hand, I'm holding the iCoffee filter. This is one that requires no liners. Just wash it out after each use and you're golden. This filter is unique in the way that it has a window on the front of it. This window is specifically there so you can see your coffee being brewed. {Yes, it is interesting to watch}

Next to the filter, you can see a picture of its top. This is a pretty thick, plastic top that seals the coffee into the filter while it's brewing so it doesn't get all over while also keeping the steam in for the brewing process. Just be careful when cleaning. This gets pretty hot.

 This photo will give you an idea of how your coffee looks as it's brewing. The water goes through the filter and pushes the coffee grounds around. So instead of hot water shooting straight through your coffee grounds {and missing a good portion of what is in the filter}, this is steaming them and using every bit of the coffee put into the filter to make your cup-o-joe. In the last frame, it shows the coffee crema that is produced from this technology. I have to say, I see that every time I'm brewing coffee. {And I can taste the difference for sure}.

I read in the handbook that the iCoffee can use 15% less coffee grounds and still make an extraordinary pot of coffee to drink & that is definitely true. It's taken some balancing to figure out how much coffee to use, but I think what's best for us is to use about 1.5 to 2 less scoops of coffee. So, if we're making 8 cups, we only need about 6 scoops. Otherwise, the flavor of the coffee comes out way too strong.

Bottom line: I have simply never been able to produce such rich and full bodied coffee like I have with the iCoffee. There's no acidic taste, I don't get any grounds in my mug, and it truly tastes like something I should have to go into a coffee shop to get. And? I use store brand ground coffee for the most part but it certainly doesn't taste like it.

It's not about the brand of coffee purchased. I've learned that it's more to do with how you brew it. And this? Friends, the iCoffee is where it's at. {I'm praying it has a long life on my kitchen counter}

So how can you get your hands on one?
