iCoffee by Remington Review and Giveaway

samples

The first time I ever had coffee, I was about 7 years old. I remember waking up every morning about 4am with grandma and grandpa in the summer months, and before they left to go to work, we would have a cup of coffee and breakfast. Summertimes are meant for those young kids to sleep in, but for us it meant spending as much time with out grandparents as possible.

As I got older my stomach couldn’t take the acid in the coffee no more, so I had to limit my intake. The bitterness and the acid taste of the coffee had me putting in spoonfuls of sugar and creamer to cut down on the over powering taste. However, I still loved my coffee! Coffee wasn’t used to give me a pick me up, because caffeine doesn’t have that effect on me, but away to warm my body in the morning during the cold months.

Recently, we were sent an iCoffee by Remington to check out.

The iCoffee has taken 7 years and 1,257 different prototypes to find the right mix to make the perfect pot of coffee. With its SteamBrew technology, you will have a perfect pot each time. The iCoffee is made with six hot water jets, a window so you can watch as your coffee is being brewed. It’s also programmable up to 24 hours, has a 2 hour auto shut off, and you’re also able to check out the rich coffee crema in the brew window.

If you’re like me and you’re not a fan of the crema, you can use the basket that comes with the iCoffee you catch most of the crema. As stated above we had the opportunity to check out the iCoffee first hand. With both my husband and I having a love for coffee, we had to see what all the buzz was about.

First thing was first, get this bad boy out of the box and all parts washed. After we had all the parts washed it didn’t take long for the brewer to start brewing its first pot of coffee.

Clean Brewer icoffee

As you can see from the above pictures the basket is in place to catch the crema, and the first thing ran through the coffee pot was water, to help clean it all out.

Next was getting it ready to brew, the brewing process was pretty neat, it plays a short tune before it starts and one when it has completed the brew cycle.

I was eagerly waiting to try out this coffee, and when I did I was extremely surprised. As I said above I usually have to add a lot of sugar and cream to cut back on the bitter acid flavor of the coffee. With the new iCoffee, I can use less sugar, and at times I don’t even use creamer. The coffee is super smooth, and I am finding myself making a pot of coffee in the afternoon hours as well, because I want me some yummy goodness.

I did find one thing I didn’t like about the coffee pot though, sometimes we cannot finish a full pot in the 2 hour frame, and when the coffee pot shuts off, you cannot just turn it back on to warm the coffee. When you attempt to you get told to add water. I would loved to have the ability to turn the pot back on to warm the coffee, instead we have to warm it via the microwave.

Other than that I have no complaints, we get a nice smooth brew everytime, it isn’t hard on my stomach, I can use less sugar and cream, and it makes me wanting more through-out the day.

The iCoffee by Remington can be purchased at Dillard’s, Bed Bath & Beyond, HSN, and other retailers such as Amazon. The price of the product may vary depending on which store you purchase from, the retail value is $169.99

    I like how they say the coffee is pre-steamed to evenly apply proper moisture and heat. I would like to try how less acidic it really is.
