The Giz Wiz and the 30 second K-cup

Episode 1825

Can this Chefman InstaCoffee really brew coffee from a K-Cup in 30 seconds? That's what Dickie D wants to find out with The Chefman InstaCoffee Single Serve Coffee Maker. Brews in 30 Seconds. Compatible with K-Cup Pods, Grounds & Loose-Leaf Tea w/Reusable Filter. While their copy says “Make fresh coffee in 30 seconds, I put a stopwatch to test it out. Well, in 30 seconds this coffee maker does start the brewing process, which is fast – but it takes 2 minutes, 15 seconds to brew a full Kcup. In addition to K-Cups®, you can use your own freshly ground roast using the included filter.

Popular with coffee enthusiasts worldwide including the Giz Wiz and Leo is the AeroPress coffee maker. It uses a fast brewing process (similar to French Press) to make a smooth, full-flavored cup of coffee. With the AeroPress & the newer AeroPress Go paper microfilter, there's no grit in your cup, and clean-up takes seconds. Plus, you get 350 filters in the box with the Go! Also with the "Go", the company says you can make 1 to 3 cups of American coffee per pressing in about a minute.
