Cold Brew machine that never was

Usually when you make cold brew coffee, you grind the beans and let them brew in the refrigerator for anywhere from minimum 8 hours or more. There was a campaign on Indiegogo for Prisma Cold Brew back in August that makes a pot that brews cold brew in 10 minutes. It was designed by FirstBuild, a co-creation community backed by GE Appliances. It used vacuum infusion to extract the coffee faster.

With their campaign completed, it only reached 97% goal of $150,000 ($145,228) so they will be refunding all the money. They believe some of the problem was that their potential buyers haven’t discovered cold brew yet. It may have been the steep price – they had an early bird special for $229 at $70 off so that means the regular price would have been $299. That’s a steep price to pay for a cold brewer.
