Product Review: Iced Coffee Maker by Primula

LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2014 – We’ve all been at a coffee house where we’ve had the perfectly brewed iced coffee, and the question remains, how did they do that?

The Iced coffee maker, the cold brew glass carafe brewing system by Primula Products is a pitcher with a mesh core that allows you to infuse water with coffee grounds to make a professional cup of iced coffee.

Primula creates new items by exploring how people prepare beverages in different cultures and understanding the experience and ritual of these preparations. Understanding why people love that beverage is the first step in our design process. Products are designed to connect with that emotion,”

The Flavor Now Beverage System is a sleek and modern looking pitcher that holds 2.7 quarts of liquid; it comes with a mesh core, a wand to mash ingredients inside the core, a chill core to keep it cold and recipes.

All you have to do is place corse to finely ground coffee inside the core, then you pour a cup of water through the grounds to loosen them. Fill fill the pitcher with water and let it sit for 12-24 hours (overnight).

Lastly remove the core and your water is perfectly infused with coffee.

The questions: Can you brew good coffee starting with cold water, will the messy grinds seep through the mesh, will iced coffee infuse the water with out making the coffee too bitter and does it make an iced cup of coffee that’s better or at least comparable to what’s in a coffee house

Thus our test is warranted.
