Nearly one year after successfully securing $2 million on Indiegogo for the Opal Nugget Ice Maker, GE Appliances’ FirstBuild has returned to the crowdfunding platform to raise $150,000 for its new product, the Prisma Cold Brew Coffee Maker.
“Traditionally, cold brew coffee is brewed on the counter or in the fridge by steeping coarse ground coffee in water for 12 or more hours. Prisma speeds up the process through a specialized vacuum infusion process. We recommend using fresh roasted, fine ground coffee for the best results.”
The product uses specialized vacuum inclusion algorithm to extract flavor rapidly from finely ground beans. The vacuum then releases after brewing. Taylor Dawson, product evangelist at FirstBuild, explained:
“When you want your coffee, you want it now, and traditional cold brew methods can’t prove that. Prisma is positioned to serve this passionate existing customer base with a better at-home cold brew experience.”
The Prisma Cold Brew Coffee Maker process is simple:
- Step 1: Add finely ground coffee and water at desired ratio
- Step 2: Press button to begin coffee extraction using vacuum infusion
- Step 3: Cold brew is automatically drained into the carafe
“We developed Prisma in collaboration with Sunergos Coffee, a nationally-renowned coffee shop and roastery. Quality and taste were of utmost importance as we designed our specialized infusion process. We have served Prisma cold brew to the acclaim of enthusiasts and coffee tasting experts across the nation.”
Those who back the campaign may receive the Prisma Cold Brew Coffee Maker starting at $229. The initiative is set to close in September.
