Cold brew coffee is the newest trend in coffee making. Cold brew, in essence, is coffee brewed in cold water rather than in hot water. To prepare, one typically combines coffee and water in a mason jar for 12-24 hours before filtration. In today’s day and age, there is not an easy and convenient way to filter this coffee. Until now. BRUW is the newest and most innovative way to prepare cold brew coffee using nothing other than two ordinary mason jars. The BRUW filter is a double sided mason jar lid with a filter in the center. This allows the coffee to be filtered from one mason jar to the other in a sealed environment. Not only is this easier, it prevents one from spilling the sludgy mixture of coffee and water. Simply fit the BRUW filter onto a standard wide mouth mason jar, attach an empty jar to the top, flip it over and watch your cold brew magically drip through our groundbreaking product! We hope to make brewing cold brew coffee a painless process and make the art available to all home coffee drinkers. No longer shall we have to stress over filtering our cold brew!
I am a high school student at the Frankel Jewish Academy in Metropolitan Detroit and I started BRUW while in a dual enrollment class with Lawrence Technological University. As a part of the course, I was asked to create a prototype and pitch the idea to the class. Frustrated with the difficulty of filtering cold brew coffee, I immediately thought that a double sided mason jar lid would be beneficial to filtering the cold brew. After countless prototypes in both primitive and professional materials, BRUW was perfected. A provisional patent application was filed, and BRUW was on the road.
NOTE: All BRUW filters include 2 wide mouth mason jars.
Risks and challenges
The type of mold we are purchasing is reserved specifically for small volume manufacturing. If we sell 10k+ pieces and raise no more than our goal (rare and extremely unlikely). Production could be delayed by about 1-2 months. In addition, there is a minute chance the mold is defective and does not product the proper quality of products, delaying production further.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
