I got thinking after my latest series of blogs about some small coffee brewers that are a little different. Different in a good way. They can brew great coffee but may not be that well known yet. Let’s take a closer look at a few you may want to consider if you want to brew really good coffee at...

The gleaming Black Sowden Joe SoftBrew coffee pot is the outcome of a design genius thinking through the basic steps of a coffee brewing process. By taking a fresh look at how coffee is brewed all over the world, George Sowden saw the opportunity to apply modern manufacturing methods and materials to the simplest of time-proven brewing methods; that is, pouring hot water over ground coffee and letting it steep.
There are lots of ways to introduce hot water to ground coffee but the difficulty everyone then tries to solve is how to separate the spent grounds from the liquid brew. George Sowden has designed a stainless steel filter with half-a-million micro-holes in it and then created integrated porcelain pots with tight fitting lids to accomplish this task.
The beautiful Chinese porcelain pots come in various sizes and shapes and are easy to clean and maintain. By using top grade materials and craftsmanship the Sowden line of coffee brewing pots will last more than a lifetime with minimal care and cleaning. The advanced technology stainless steel filters are made on expensive micro-engineering equipment using a photo-etching process..
Several benefits to this approach have been realized:
- You can vary the grind as much as you want to find the best flavor extraction of your favorite coffee.
- The coffee grinds do not get squeezed or pressed and therefore no matter how delicate the coffee you are using it will give up its best flavor.
- You can vary the water temperature to your liking for producing the most flavor and aroma.
- Cleanup is a breeze; normally just rinsing the filter under the tap is all that is needed. All components are dishwasher safe as well.
The gleaming black line of Sowden Joe SoftBrew coffee pots comes in 2 sizes including: 4-cup 27oz and 8-cup 44oz.
