About

Introducing the BrewCube, the automatic cold brew coffee machine for your home.

WHY DO YOU NEED A BREWCUBE?

Your toaster stops when your bread is toasted. Your microwave stops when your food is cooked. Why do cold brew coffee machines require you to return to your kitchen after 18 hours to stop the brewing process?  

Shouldn't your cold brew coffee maker filter your coffee automatically when it's done? We think so.  

The BrewCube's built-in timer and automatic filter brews your coffee for the perfect amount of time and eliminates the hassle of having to come back to your kitchen 18 hours later to manually filter your coffee. The BrewCube makes it easy for anyone to create a weeks worth of delicious cold brew at home!

The BrewCube.  It's cold brew, automated.

Making "cold brewed" coffee at home doesn't have to be a mystery anymore. It simply requires the correct ratio of coarsely ground coffee and water steeped at room temperature for a precise amount of time. The main thing is that it's not brewed with boiling hot water so volatile compounds that degrade quickly are not extracted, just pure flavor. This brewing without heat is also why cold brew maintains its freshness for over 2 weeks.

The 12-30 hour brewing process without heat creates a smooth flavor profile that is 67% less acidic than traditional hot coffee. This makes it a delicious and approachable alternative for coffee lovers who may not always be a fan of the acidity or bitter taste that accompanies a traditional hot brew. It also makes drinking coffee so much more enjoyable when its warm outside.

THE PROBLEM

When we set out to create the BrewCube, our goal was to solve one BIG problem we experienced with other cold brew coffee makers. None of the devices we tried offered the right control over the brewing process that we were hoping to find.

Drip style devices couldn't deliver precision and didn't fully soak all of the grounds for a full 18 hours.

Other devices were not automated and require you to be back in the kitchen 18 hours later to unstop a messy plug or pull out a filter basket (with tiny holes that restricted soaking) in order to finish the brewing. If you miss the right brew time, you’ll end up with coffee that’s downright undrinkable.

THE BIG IDEA

Why can’t we just have a timer that starts an automatic filter at the exact time you specify? That way get a consistent flavor and have our coffee ready and waiting for us when we want it.

And while we're at it, how about we design an amazing looking product that has a bunch of other benefits too.

THE IDEA

Your toaster stops when your bread is toasted. Your microwave stops when your food is cooked. Why should you have to be back in your kitchen after 18 hours to stop your cold brew from overbrewing? The lightbulb went off and an idea was born.

THE DESIGN

As with all great product design, function was only half of the equation. We partnered with our incredible Product Designer Kelly Jaster (she is AMAZING) to develop the sleek, modern form that defines the BrewCube.

THE MANUFACTURER 

To take our ideas from 3D files to working prototypes, we conducted an extensive supplier search and chose a manufacturer of coffee and tea equipment that has a long standing record of success with major brands worldwide. We've already visited their facilities and we love the team. We worked with them to create every single prototype with the idea that anything we made had to be reproducible at scale. We finalized our prototype together and, with your support, we are ready to go to production.

Join our campaign and take advantage of our Early Bird Pricing!

From Kickstarter launch to order fulfillment we expect to need 6 months. 

Tooling is a difficult and expensive process. Extensive manufacturing inspections will also be a key part of our production in order to make sure we can deliver the highest quality product on time.

An incredible group of individuals has come together to bring you the BrewCube. Alex drives the ideas. Brian knows how to make things and has experience in manufacturing both domestically and abroad. Kelly is our All-Star Designer. Zach is our production partner who works with coffee and tea equipment suppliers all over the world. And we are forever indebted to the incredible team at Vat19 for all of their help spreading the love

Bottom line…we love cold brew and we want you to love it too. In the comfort of your own home, that is.

Risks and challenges

While we have gone to great lengths to make sure we are ready to go, with any first run of a new product there could be production hurdles which we will need to overcome. Moving from prototype to first production article will be the most important step. We'll be on the ground with our manufacturing partner during tooling and production to ensure that every BrewCube rolling off the production line looks beautiful and functions properly.

We're confident in our logistics and fulfillment and are working with trusted partners for these steps.
