Coffeetime Brew System: Your Cup of Joe?
The coffeetime brew system is also supposed to be as easy as one, two, three; so we took it
to someone who knows a thing or two about a good cup of coffee, Tyler
Greff, manager of Trader’s Coffee and Tea in Grand Junction.
After reading the directions, “It seems a lot more complicating
honestly,” said Graff, “I just don’t get it,” we
noticed one problem right away.
“If you wanted your Monday morning coffee, you would have to start it
around 5:00pm Sunday night,” said Graff.
We needed to taste that cup of brew so we waited, and waited, and waited
until the concentrate was ready.
“It’s as easy as one, two, three, and then wait 12 hours,” said Graff.
After adding water to the concentrate, and making one of Trader’s
famous cups of coffee, the taste test was ready to begin.
“Oh this one’s a lot better. This one smells kind of muddy; like an
earthy, muddy, coffee smell,” said customer Abby Landmeier.
One point for the coffee shop.
“I like this one better, but I am also a cream-filled, sugar-filled
coffee drinker,” said employee Maggie Cole.
So now the score is even, but lets leave it up to the expert for the
“Yeah, that one’s a lot better,” said Graff, pointing at the coffee shop cup.
So, after assembling the product, and testing all that the brew system
has to offer, our expert rates it;
“A two, I wouldn’t even give this away at our Christmas party,” said
If you’re looking for that instant pick-me-up to get your day going,
you’re probably going to be doing it without this cup of joe.
