Disposable French Press in a Bag Makes a Great Cup of Coffee
The Coffeebrewer is a disposable French press. Inside the pouch is a filter with 26 g of freshly ground specialty coffee. To brew 3 cups of coffee, all you need is to open it, pour 1/2 L hot water into it, and let it brew 5-8 min. Now we know we're all about single serve coffee, but we think this coffee in a bag hits the mark. It's contained, portable, and makes a great cup of coffee.
How does it work?
- OPEN the top from side to side
- PULL OUT the red string
- SHAPE the bottom to make it stand
- POUR in 1/2 L of hot water
- CLOSE zipper in the top
- BREW for 5—6 min
- SHAPE a wide POUR SPOUT
- SERVE as illustrated
- ENJOY 0,5 liter of gourmet coffee!

I remember reading about this here a couple years ago. I couldn't find any at the time so I forgot about them until yesterday. I searched again and found that my local REI had some in stock. Since I'm always looking for new ways to brew and I only drink single origin coffee this seemed like something I had to jump on. Plus, they drop 26 grams of coffee in the bag which is very respectable. So I picked up the 3 different origins they had (Ethiopia, Bolivia, and Brazil).
The brew method is simple and would be great for camping. My hope was that I would be blown away and this would be a staple for our future camping trips.
Unfortunately I've been left disappointed.I think the main issue is that I bought these on July 8, 2014. The expiration date is September 7, 2014. No biggie right? Well the good news is that they put the pack date on the package too. The bad news is that it was March 7, 2013. That is a year and a half shelf life. That's unheard of. Most coffee brands will put an expiration date of a year after roasting. Any brand that actually cares about their coffee will put an expiration date of less than 6 months after the roast date. Since I'm drinking this coffee 16 months after it has been roasted it is nasty stale.
I think if the coffee was actually fresh my experience would have been different. I've tried the Ethiopia and the Bolivia so far. The same stale flavor beats my tongue and overpowers it before any other nuance of the beans can get a chance to make it through.I have no hope for the Brazil that I have left.
By the time I finished writing this I have dumped my cup of Grower's Cup and hand ground some fresh Sumatra beans from Germack. Overall I think it was a good idea. I may try it again if I can find some fresh packages.
Hi, I'm from a coffee shop in Dubai, and we are interested to have a carafes for our hot drinks.
