iCoffee Review and Giveaway!

*This post is brought to you by iCoffee.

My husband is the coffee drinker in our household. I prefer to get my caffeine by other means (hey, there's caffeine in chocolate!), but love the smell of freshly brewed coffee. The iCoffee machine doesn't let either of us down! Not only is the coffee aromatic, but in my husband's words, it is "creamier" than what you get from a regular coffee maker.

Opening up the lid of the iCoffee, what you see is much the same as a regular brewer. There is a reservoir to hold water and a basket for your grounds. Operating the iCoffee brewer is just like any other machine - very easy. But that is where the similarities end.

Most coffee makers use a drip system, which can compact the coffee grounds and bring out too much of the bitterness of the beans. In contrast, the iCoffee by Remington machine steams the grounds before using hot water jets to stir them, extracting the maximum amount of great flavor. Another very unique difference is that this coffee maker will sing to you! When you press the button to start the brewing process, it plays a few notes of Mozart. It also plays when your coffee is done brewing.


Some of my favorite features are:


  • Auto-off feature kicks in after 2 hours
  • Pre-programmable -up to 24 hours
  • No filters and the ability to use less coffee saves money

Now, obviously, no products is perfect. The iCoffee requires more clean up than other brewers. Because it doesn't require a paper filter (the filter is metal), you need to clean the filter and the coffee pot after each use. There is also sometimes sediment in the bottom of the coffee. This doesn't present much of a problem, however, with the addition of the extra filter that was included in our iCoffee box.

Now for a Giveaway!

The iCoffe Brewer can be found at many major retailers and retails for $170. One lucky winner will be taking home their own iCoffee maker! To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway will end on March 10, 2014. Good luck!
