The increasing mystification and complication of making coffee has been a trend for years. George Sowden has gone in the opposite direction with Softbrew™. With a back-to-basics, old fashioned approach, using a jug and hot water, the coffee brewed with a Softbrew™filter is as good as the beans it is brewed from... in other words, the natural taste of coffee! The good thing is that you can finally taste the difference between a Colombian and a Kenyan coffee at whatever strength you might want, because you brew coffee the soft way without forcing, pressing, steaming and burning the valuable coffee beans.
The purpose of the Softbrew™filter is to keep the ground beans separated from the water thousands of microscopic holes allow the water to flow and take up the taste without over filtering whilst allowing some ‘fines’ to filter through to the coffee giving the typical ‘body’ of an excellent brew. The method is simple; place the filter in the porcelain pot, put coffee into the filter and pour over hot water at the temperature of your choice - that’s it!
The SoftBrew™treats the ground coffee beans gently they simply brew in the water at the heart of the pot.
2 NO SQUASH NO SQUEEZE:
With SoftBrew™the beans are not squashed and squeezed as in a press pot.
3 NO OVERFILTERING:
SoftBrew™coffee is not excessively filtered as with a paper filter system.
