Brewing the perfect cup of coffeee...for one!
Product Review: We Review the iCoffee Opus Single Serve Brewer
by Paige Estigarribia
Disclosure: The Dollar Stretcher received an iCoffee Opus Single Serve Brewer to facilitate this review. All opinions in this article are those of The Dollar Stretcher.
Coffee is one of those things here at TDS that we all love. Some of us like to brew a pot here in the office, some of us bring it from home...and still some stop in occasionally on the way to work to snag a cup on the drive. So naturally, we were all thrilled when we were contacted to review and give away an iCoffee Opus Single Serve Brewer. We reviewed iCoffee's one-pot brewer a while back, and knowing how awesome it was, we couldn't wait to give the single serve brewer a go. So what did we think?
A Little about the iCoffee Opus
In case you aren't familiar with a single-serve brewer, this is a coffee pot that heats water and also uses a special pod (in this case a K-Cup or other similar pod). The heated water is pumped through the pod, and out comes a piping hot, brewed cup of coffee. The Opus is special, because it features iCoffee's patent pending SpinBrew technology. This special SpinBrew technology puts steam, spin, and stir all together inside the cup, and the result is a wonderfully smooth cup of coffee.
So what did we think?
Honestly, we really like the iCoffee Opus. It is our go-to coffeemaker here at TDS headquarters. We love the fact that everyone can brew their own coffee preference, and we love that there is no clean-up required! We've been brewing both coffee and tea in the Opus, and it makes a perfect cup of both. Plus, you can adjust the dial, and the Opus will brew different amounts (from 4-12 ounces), depending on how large or small your cup is. The drip tray is removable so that if your cup is big...it will likely fit! The Opus also looks very stylish, and it doesn't take up a huge amount of counter space. And it also has an energy saver mode, and an automatic shut-off function. Plus, ours came with 6 cups to get us started!
You can find a nearby store to purchase an iCoffee on their website's storefinder page, which includes Bed, Bath and Beyond and Kmart. I also found them on on Amazon! Depending on where you purchase one, they can run between 130.00 to 170.00 dollars. And iCoffee has so graciously agreed to give away one iCoffee Opus Single Serve brewer to one of our readers!
