BrewSpoon was invented right here in Msanzi, in Bloemfontein actually, and also aims to develop the manufacturing sector in the Free State.
Seeing as it’s manufactured here – not in some far-away land – this means when you buy BrewSpoon you’re supporting a small, local business, in turn, helping our economy grow.
Since launching BrewSpoon in 2019, our team is proud to have won the Central University of Technology Staff Innovation Award.
We’re part of the #SupportLocal movement!
A simple, easy way to make single cup filter coffee. BrewSpoon is made from 100% safe, food-grade polypropylene (plastic) and 150 micron 304L stainless steel, in Cape Town, South Africa.
Anyone and everyone who loves coffee, BrewSpoon is a quick, easy alternative to making a full pot of plunger coffee. Travellers, campers, caravaners and anyone else in between who enjoys filter coffee.
BrewSpoon coffee is an infused brew much like plunger coffee. Ground coffee and water infuse to produce brewed coffee, however, with BrewSpoon the coffee is contained within our patented spoon design, making disposing and cleaning much easier than with plunger coffee – your days of having to dig out wet soggy coffee grounds are over.
Yes, but because of the nature of ground coffee and the varying degrees of grind, this will effect the quality of your coffee. Like plunger coffee, BrewSpoon requires a coarser grind. Saying that finer grinds do work but you will find more sediment in your cup with finer coffee. This bothers some folks, and not others, so it is really up to the you. We recommend coarser ground coffee. Very fine, espresso ground coffee is not recommended. You might prefer a darker roast but remember what you love, someone else might dislike so it’s always best to play around until you find something that suits your own distinct palate.
We recommend 0.5-0.6oz but you can put in as much as 0.7-0.8oz. We find that filling up to the one half of the spoon is just about right. Overfilling BrewSpoon can lead to a poor infusion – stopping the water from properly circulating between the grounds leading to a weaker brew with less flavor. You might also notice that BrewSpoon will float in your cup and not sink – this could be overfilling, but it could also be a very determined air pocket trapped in the chamber. Tapping the BrewSpoon in your cup and from side to side usually releases the bubbles and it will eventually sink and brew perfectly.
A minimum of 3 mins and as much as 5 or 6 if you prefer stronger coffee. If you like a hotter cup then 4 minutes will be plenty – occasionally stirring and tapping if it wants to float to the top.
No. Like plunger coffee which we like to brew for at least 5 minutes, when making coffee with BrewSpoon, the coffee will not go cold. We recommend using water just off the boil.
