    7700 for the perfect cup of tea?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    From the UK Telegraph...

    "A gadget which promises "the perfect cup of tea" could be on sale later this year with a price tag of 7,700.

    The Craft Brewer can brew a cup of tea in a minute, using a process called reverse atmospheric infusion (RAIN).

    While common brewing methods pull or push water through tea, the Craft Brewer changes the air pressure.

    The process involves loose tea leaves being placed in a brewing chamber where air is then drawn out to create a vacuum.

    The negative pressure that results causes gasses from the tea leaves to be released, giving an optimum flavour says the company that has produced the Craft Brewer, Bkon."

    wow - 'reverse atmospheric infusion', what a wanky term for vacuum

    How much do you want to bet the makers couldn't tell it apart from a traditional steep in a blind taste test.

    I was thinking I could put the dry tea in the base of an Aeropress and then suck the water up from a bowl using the plunger. Reverse atmospheric infusion for $40
    Dimal and MrJack like this.

    Strictly speaking, it's always pushed (even when under vacuum)

    Negative pressure, oh boy...

    Once upon a time I wouldn't have believed anyone would buy something like that. But given some of the threads on this forum...
