Disclosure I received products in exchange for my honest review of the iCoffee. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
Recently I had the pleasure of reviewing the iCoffee by Remington. As many of you already know I am a lover of all things coffee. I drink it morning, noon and before bed, and I prefer mine with cream and sugar. How do you like your coffee, and have you tried the new iCoffee machine? I have and love it!! Here’s why:
Let me first start off by saying the iCoffee machine is much different than your typical drip coffee brewers, single-serve brewers, and French Press by how the coffee is finessed inside the brewer. The iCoffee uses a unique SteamBrew Pre-Steam that unlocks the flavor of your favorite coffee. Inside the brewer window you can see as the coffee works it’s steam brew technology which stirs your favorite coffee releasing even more great flavors. The iCoffee also does not contain any lead or BPAs.
iCoffee is really simple to use and makes 12 cups of coffee within minutes. Has great features such as 24 hour programmable and auto off for safety. Comes with a reusable gold-tone filter. To brew coffee from the iCoffee machine just remove the brew basket and add your favorite coffee (use medium to coarse grind) and the amount of grounds needed.
Next add the appropriate amount of water. Now turn the machine on and start the brew. Once you start the coffee maker, it begins to pre-steam evenly applying proper moisture and heat. It’s like steaming vegetables to unlock nutrition and flavor. iCofffee uses the benefits of steam to open up and fully release a wonderful smooth, non bitter tasting coffee.
I noticed right away after making the first pot how much of a smoother flavor the coffee had compared to my drip brewer and k-cup brewer, and how it wasn’t bitter. I gave a cup to my husband this morning and he said, “Wow this is one of the best pots of coffee you have ever made!” And then he asked what I did different. I said I just used our new iCoffee machine.
Cleaning the iCoffee maker is easy. I watched this short video below I found on the iCoffee website. I was able to clean mine as quickly as they did in the video.
How To Clean
I did a lot of research on the iCoffee machine before using it and writing this review. One review stuck out the most and that was about whether it really made the best coffee. Well after reading their review and how unsatisfied they were I had to make a pot and investigate for myself.
Much to my surprise they were completely wrong and the iCoffee actually makes some of the best tasting coffee I have ever had to date! And I will prove to you they were wrong and show my findings. Apparently the reviewer ran into some problems they should not have. Number one they claimed they didn’t have a light colored coffee foam called crema in their poured cup of coffee as iCoffee advertised. That’s because iCoffee didn’t advertise you will have crema in your poured cup of coffee. Here is the answer to this from iCoffee’s website:
“The Rich Coffee Crema forms when the coffee is steambrewing. That rich coffee crema helps ensure an “impossibly smooth” tasting cup of coffee. By the time it hits the carafe the crema bubbles have burst and all you are left with is that impossibly smooth coffee flavor.”
Yes this really does leave you with the smoothest flavor!
The next problem the reviewer had I would like to clear up is: They claim nowhere did it say what amount of grounds to use per cup. Not true again. In the instruction booklet that comes with your machine and in the video below. Which can be found on iCoffee’s website or on YouTube, and it clearly states to add the appropriate amount of your favorite ground coffee to the brew basket. This means if you add so many scoops to every 6 cups of coffee to your regualr machine that’s what you would do with this one. It’s about preference and instructions of the coffee you are using. iCoffee also releases more flavor from the same amount of coffee and allows you to use less coffee to achieve the same boldness.
How To Brew
The last problem this review mentioned was not knowing what type of grind to use in the iCoffee. Here is the answer to that on the iCoffee website that I had no issue finding. I used my favorite Folgers flavor that is a medium-coarse grind, and it came out wonderful with no issues and the flavor like I said was really wonderful and smooth with no bitter taste.
What brand of coffee and grind size should I use in the iCoffee?
“Use you favorite brand of coffee, iCoffee makes any brand taste “impossibly smooth”. We recommend that you use a medium to coarse grind, one that is commonly used in Auto/Manual drip brewers, Percolators or French Press makers. And it clearly states: PLEASE DO NOT use fine or extra fine grounds suitable for expresso or Turkish coffee.”
You can find the answers to these questions and more just as easy as I did on the iCoffee website on their frequently asked questions section. I hope that my review and experience with this brewer has answered any questions or issues you may have had with your new iCoffee machine.
Final thought: If you love good coffee like I do, the iCoffee is for you and is well worth the money. If you read the instruction and use the iCoffee machine as intended you will be very pleased. Plus you save money by using fewer grounds and no filters. And it’s the most unbelievably easy to make, best smooth tasting coffee yet!
