iCoffee SteamBrew Coffee Maker

This is a review of the new iCoffee Black & Chrome Coffeemaker RCB100 BC12.

Mr. Bruce Burrows, the inventor, started tinkering around with the idea of steam brewing back in 2005. His goal was to produce a full-bodied, smooth cup of coffee without any of the bitterness produced by many coffee makers. He teamed up with Remington to produce the ultimate coffee brewer.

The process simplified, is that the grounds are steamed until evenly moistened. A series of rotating jets then continue to stir the coffee to extract maximum flavor from the grounds. The resulting coffee is deep, dark, rich and smooth.   The coffee maker has a 12-cup capacity water reservoir,steam and hot water jets that steams and stirs your favorite coffee, a premium gold filter (saves you money and no need for expensive paper filters), a programmable timer, on-off button with chime, a glass carafe, and a clock.

Aesthetically I feel the coffee maker is a little bulky. The rotational steambrew viewing window is where the brew basket has a window where you can watch the grounds steam and swirl around. It was neat to watch the first time, but eventually gets boring, so I don’t think it was really that necessary in the design. It does have a simple display that is easy to use and extremely easy to program. I definitely would recommend this coffee maker to friends, the resulting coffee is definitely deep, dark, rich and smooth…. absolutely delicious.
