When it comes to making tea or coffee, it seems the options are endless. If heaping a spoonful of instant into a cup of hot water isn’t your thing, you can opt for single-serve machines. These are great, but since laying eyes on the BKON Craft Brewer, we’ve realized that they’re really just amateurs. The BKON means business, as it’s able to crank out a cup of tea or coffee a minute for an hour. It also stores up to 200 recipes and lets you browse them through its touchscreen. It uses a process called RAIN technology, which is their patented vacuum extraction method that allegedly beats regular extraction by allowing for lower temperatures (which avoid bitter flavours) and faster brewing speeds.
Yeah, this is a fancy machine, and it’s one that’ll make your wallet cry: $14,000 is the asking price. You better have some deep pockets or a serious need for it, because we’re going to stick with our Tassimo.
