The CafeSolo™ coffee-maker is both an innovation in form and process. It is a new coffee brewing method and an integrated brewing and serving device, using no machinery or filters, no steam or pushing and pulling. Boiling water is poured directly onto ground coffee beans and stirred. After four minutes the coffee is ready to be served directly from the carafe. The filter funnel ensures that coarse particles are retained and the drip-free lip prevents spills. With the neoprene cover the coffee is kept at serving temperature for up to 30 minutes.
