Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

I had one of these softbrew pots & loved it!! Unfortunately the handle recently broke & I am in need of a new one - if someone would like to point me in the direction of a new unit or just the pot (as the filter still works great!!) it would be much appreciated.

Filter is cheaply made

By katesmudges

from Regina SK

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

This pot sits in my cupboard after repeated tries to make decent coffee. I adjusted grinds numerous times and my coffee came out weak. When I tried a finer grind, it was disastrous. So I'm back to using my Melitta cone 4-cup glass filter system from yesteryear.

The lid on this pot is plastic and really cheap, no matter the fancy name given to it.

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

If you order the dark coffee at Starbucks, don't buy this. It's pretty, but it can't make strong coffee. Thin, watery & weak is the best it can do. I tried varying the grind, brewing time, and concentration, but nothing worked. I've returned the unit and gone back to drip.

Great Coffee, But Filter Broke After Several Weeks of Use

By Susie

from Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

I loved the coffee although it took a few times to get the proportions correct.
Unfortunately, I can no longer use the coffee maker. It was such a big disappointment that after about 5 weeks of use the filter broke! There is a rim on the filter that allows it stay in place once you put it in the pot. It now consistently breaks away from the main filter. I have only ever hand washed the filter gently, so I am very upset. I will try to return it to my local store. I

Can Snowden users provide input...

By Ripplefish

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

What do you recommend as the best grind for a 4 minute steep? Or do you suggest a different steep time for the grind you use (what would this grind look like)?

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

Bought my Sowden hete in Halifax. Want sure if it was wuth the price--but it has been worth the money! Makes smooth, super-flavoured coffee without bitterness or edge. And no polluting pods! A great addition to the ritual of coffee.

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

We purchased a larger Sowden SoftBrew from Cuppers Coffee House in Lethbridge AB four years ago.
It is a 12 cup - - a bit larger than this one Starbucks has introduced recently.
It makes awesome smooth coffee,taking the acidity edge off the brew.It's actually a bit difficult to explain, but we love it.
Actually Cuppers was our coffee house when we lived there and travel through there on the way to BC for holidays,and they actually were sampling coffee made from the SoftBrew pot which was a clincher to buy one.
Given the cost of coffee brewers, drippers, presses, mugs and other things coffee houses sell, this IS NOT an expensive coffee system for those of us who love our coffee.
You won't be sorry you bought it - - -and it'll make a great gift for someone on your Christmas or other special occasion gift hunt for that person who has everything and is impossible to buy for or impress ---
There you have it - - - enjoy - - - we sure do.
{All pros,no cons on this product.}

Comments about Sowden Jakob SoftBrew™ - White, 8 cup:

So easy to use. Delivers a quality cup of coffee, similar in flavour to a press with an easier clean up. Worth every penny.
