The Grower’s Cup Coffeebrewer is a portable coffee maker that only needs hot water to create two cups of coffee.
Most coffee-loving folks who crave a cup in the morning are always in a hurry to get their fix. Danish coffee brand Grower’s Cup has created a nifty little device designed specifically for those folks: a portable and disposable coffee maker that creates two cups of nicely brewed coffee in a jiffy.
Created by designer and Grower’s Cup Innovator and Managing Director Ulrik Skovgaard Rasmussen, The Coffeebrewer is a single-brew French press that’s shaped like a bag and only requires adding hot water to it to create coffee. The designer describes the portable coffee maker as something that “combines filter and French press coffee in one solution.”
The waterproof polyethylene-coated bag has a resealable opening and a pour spout. Inside the bag is a filter with 18g of freshly-ground specialty coffee. To brew the coffee, the user simply needs to remove the spout cover, open the bag, pour about 300ml of hot water into it and put back the cover and seal it for 2 to 4 minutes. The water mixes with the ground coffee and filters into a second chamber. A single bag serves up to two cups of coffee. To keep the coffee warm, the user just needs to put the cap back on the spout.
According to the company’s website, Rasmussen came up with the idea for the Coffeebrewer in 2002 when he ran out of paper filters for his coffee machine. He decided to create something that can “brew a decent cup of coffee without machines or special brewing equipment.” He spent years researching and developing the product.
The Coffeebrewer comes in 12 different coffee varieties and costs between just under $2 to $3 per bag. The portable coffee maker is easy to carry and use, and suited for outdoor trips or just for quick brewing at home or the office.
The product first launched in Europe in 2012 and is now available in selected countries around the globe.
