To address coffee trends in the marketplace, KitchenAid is introducing the Pour Over Coffee Brewer, which it stated is engineered with input from baristas and other industry experts to automatically simulate the manual, pour-over method of brewing coffee. The company added that the new product has earned the Home Brewer certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America.
Unlike drip coffee makers that continuously flood the brew basket, the new KitchenAid Pour Over Coffee Brewer features exacting heating and pulsing of water, the company stated. So, the brewer allows the grounds to bloom for the appropriate amount of time and at the optimal temperature range of 200°F.
“We set out to build a coffee maker that far exceeds the average drip model with the ability to produce a nuanced, flavorful cup of coffee that satisfies even the most discerning coffee aficionados,” notes Derek Ernst, global marketing director for KitchenAid small appliances. “We’re thrilled that our Pour Over Coffee Brewer has met the rigorous standards required by this world renowned organization to earn a place on its short list of SCAA Certified Brewers.”
The KitchenAid Pour Over Coffee Brewer is rolling out currently in Contour Silver, Empire Red and Onyx Black at a suggested retail price of $229.99.
