Introducing Cafflano® Kompact, Simple Pressing Hot & Cold Brewer
Now, Beanscorp is back to Kickstarter with its new product line-up, Cafflano® Kompact, simple pressing hot & cold brewer, the advanced epoch-making portable press-typed brewer. Although we designed and created Cafflano® Klassic as light (470g) and compact (194mm X 89mm) as possible with full brewing functionalities, some of our fans such as mountaineers and backpackers demanded a coffee brewer even more compact and lighter. So, after 5 months of excruciating efforts, we came up with the first mock-up version of Cafflano® Kompact that is designed to satisfy such demands. We reviewed the most of the press-typed coffee brewers available in the market and tried to improve their flaws for coffee lovers to enjoy press-typed coffee easily in the most convenient way possible, anytime, anywhere.
The outcome was incredible as we came up with the most advanced bellows system with an airlock cap. These two core parts enable Cafflano® Kompact to achieve ① putting more pressure onto brewed coffee efficiently, ② easy cleaning of chamber and micro-filter, ③ producing a cup-free structure, and ④ the latest trend, ‘cold-brew’ on the go. The etched micro filter (in-mould) lasts long and omits necessity of using paper filters to save environment. It’s compact, durable, safe, economic, fully eco-friendly, and not to mention cold brewer on the go!
Cafflano® Kompact Specifications
Cafflano® Kompact is compact, just like its model name, and it weighs only 220g. Its height is only 61mm when shrunk and 122mm with full set up. Its diameter is 108mm to be able to use on most size of cups. Making this smallest press-typed coffee brewer in the world was possible thanks to utilizing silicon bellows as its press chamber. Not only portability, but we focused on making a brewer that is safer and enables precise pressing. Cafflano® Kompact has single open-side architecture to prevent steam or hot water leakage and foldable press guide enhances safety.
Silicon Bellows Chamber
Cafflano® Kompact uses silicon bellows that have never been used on any kind of coffee equipment before. They were adopted to make brewing easier and efficiently transmit maximum pressure onto brewed coffee within the chamber. The bellows provide many benefits that other press-typed coffee brewers cannot offer; ① creates more pressure with easy-to-hold squeezing handle, and ② totally irrelevant to cup types; even brewing on a flat dish is possible. The bellows are made of food grade silicone and their high melting point of 220°C and pumping-enabled structure make it easier to clean the Micro Filter and the chamber. You can put maximum 270ml of water into the Bellows Chamber, but we recommend you to put 200ml for a single brew coffee. They are also dishwashable!
Etched Micro Filter
Cafflano® Kompact's filter is made of stainless steel on which micro holes were chemically etched and thus, no paper filters are required (If needed, existing commercial paper filters can be used). Its in-mould frame protects the thin micro filter from damages.
Another big advantage of Cafflano® Kompact is being a cold brewer that can be taken along anywhere. Making and carrying cold brew has never been easier thanks to Cafflano® Kompact's spill-free airlock cap, not to mention its portability.
Just put coffee grounds into Cafflano® Kompact, add room temperature or cold temperature water and close the airlock cap. You can then leave it for over 5 hours minimum and simply press to brew whenever, wherever.
How about bringing a thermos flask with full of ice cubes to enjoy icy cold brew with Cafflano® Kompact?
Hard case (Pouch)
Cafflano® Kompact comes with a luxurious black fabric hard case that protects from scratches and damages.
In later phrase, Cafflano® Kompact will be available in several colors to meet all coffee lovers' needs (unfortunately, only black and red in 2016)
Cleaning Cafflano® Kompact
Cleaning portable brewer has always been a concern for coffee lovers who enjoy outdoor activities; especially when one has limited water resources. But, please don't worry.
