  • How it works - the Sowden SoftBrew™ Coffee Brewer - a simple infusion method for brewing coffee.

    The Sowden SoftBrew™ filter is the technological heart of the SoftBrew™, with thousands of holes, fine enough to block all grounds larger than 150microns - practically speaking, this means that you are free to use any type of grind you choose - fine, medium or coarse - the Sowden SoftBrew™ filter does the rest - used together with the Sowden porcelain coffee pot it is designed to keep the coffee grounds out of your cup whilst letting all the flavour from the beans brew naturally and flow unhindered or trapped.

  • Hot SoftBrew™ Coffee - after putting your desired amount of ground coffee into the filter, pour over hot water and leave to steep for about 4 minutes – that’s it! Coffee made easy.

  • The Taste of Coffee – The best cup of coffee is the one that you like!

    The Sowden SoftBrew™ can be easily used to help you find the brew that best pleases your taste – after all, some people like their coffee very strong and others prefer a light, refreshing cup. The SoftBrew™ pots come in 3 sizes - small, medium and large. We also provide a 7-gram-measuring scoop, equivalent to a heaped tablespoon and we suggest 2 or 3 scoops in the small pot, 4 or 5 in the medium and 6 to 8 in the large – try varying these amounts considering that the origin, the roast and the grind size of coffee beans will also influence results.

    Experiment and discover the cup that you enjoy most.

Let’s stop the waste by tea bags and coffee capsules and enjoy a better-tasting brew - says George Sowden - just look at the statistics, they are frightening. The UK Tea Council tells us that 96 per cent of the tea consumed in the UK is made with tea bags, representing 62.5 billion cups a year (165 million cups a day) and sending some 370,000 tonnes into UK landfill sites - just for tea! Add to this, 56 billion coffee capsules and the paper filters used for many of the 400 billion cups of coffee the world consumes annually, the quantities are enormous.

Does this ecological problem produce a better-tasting coffee or tea - quite the contrary - nothing is better than fresh ground coffee and loose leaf tea he says, and with our Sowden tea and coffee brewers, the porcelain pot together with the Sowden SoftBrew™ filter mean that brewing is done easily, with nothing to throw away except the used ground coffee or the used tea leaves. He went on to comment - you can add another waste to the damage to the environment from coffee capsules and tea bags : a waste of money…
