New KitchenAid® Pour Over Coffee Brewer Earns Home Brewer Certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America

BENTON HARBOR, Mich., Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The new KitchenAid® Pour Over Coffee Brewer, engineered with input from baristas and other industry experts to automatically simulate the manual, pour over method of brewing coffee, has earned the Home Brewer certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).    

The new KitchenAid(r) Pour Over Coffee Brewer designed to automatically simulate the manual, pour over method of brewing coffee, has earned the Home Brewer certification from the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA).

"We set out to build a coffee maker that far exceeds the average drip model with the ability to produce a nuanced, flavorful cup of coffee that satisfies even the most discerning coffee aficionados," notes Derek Ernst, Global Marketing Director for KitchenAid small appliances.  "We're thrilled that our Pour Over Coffee Brewer has met the rigorous standards required by this world renowned organization to earn a place on its short list of SCAA Certified Brewers." 

Unlike drip coffee makers that continuously flood the brew basket, the KitchenAid® Pour Over Coffee Brewer precisely heats and pulses the flow of water, steeping in the same manner as the manual pour over process, allowing the grounds to bloom for the appropriate amount of time and at the optimal temperature range of 200 degrees F.  The thoughtfully located water tank close to the brew basket helps minimize heat loss. 

Additional features on the new model that coffee lovers will appreciate include one-touch medium and dark roast settings, which adjusts the brewing temperatures higher and lower to accommodate different roasts.  A cup selector ranging from two to eight cups allows for a specific serving size to be selected while reserving the remaining water in the tank for future use. An intuitive brew progress bar on the visual display indicates points in the brewing process including heating the water, pouring over the grounds and steeping. 

"We congratulate KitchenAid for making our short list of SCAA Certified Home Brewers," notes Emma Bladyka, SCAA's coffee science manager. "Qualifying for this certification requires meeting rigorous technical requirements based on decades of industry knowledge, ensuring that these machines are the best of modern coffee technology."

Scheduled to be available this August, the new KitchenAid® Pour Over Coffee Brewer will be available in Contour Silver, Empire Red and Onyx Black at a suggested retail price of $229.99.
