Craft brewing technology company PicoBrew has unveiled a new kitchen countertop appliance that is capable of brewing tea, coffee, beer, kombucha and horchata.
Called the Pico MultiBrew, the machine has been created to offer the precision of a brewing computer with the convenience of making a single cup or full carafe of coffee or tea.
Seattle-based PicoBrew’s patented technology aims to give coffee lovers control over their homebrewing experience by using customisable brew programmes tailored to each type of coffee or roast.
The company will create a catalogue of beverage recipes that can be downloaded and automatically run by the wifi-connected appliance, including programmes like pour-over coffee.
Dr Bill Mitchell, CEO of PicoBrew, said: “PicoBrew began with a focus on craft brewing technology, but we’re Seattle software, hardware and coffee geeks, so it’s only natural that we’re combining all of our passions into brewing the best coffee possible.”
PicoBrew will offer homebrewers the choice of either using their own ingredients or purchasing a variety of coffee beans, teas and other dry ingredients packaged in compostable PicoPaks.
It will also have original recipes to brew a wide variety of high-quality beverages, like chai and golden milk, in serving sizes from cup to keg.
Mitchell added: “Pico MultiBrew takes a coffee-first approach in its design and functionality. While you can still use it to produce exceptional craft beer and endless other specialty beverages, we heard our customers loud and clear when they asked for an incredible coffee brewer that they could use every day.”
Pico MultiBrew will be available for pre-order in the US this autumn.
