  1. Yes I agree, me telling you guys about my own product doesn't sound like an convincing strategy ! We are currently addressing this, based on a couple great suggestions we received here earlier.
  2. Hahaha Breaking Bad is amazing ! ;D
  3. Boilbrew


    Hi ! Cool that you have already found and added our video ! It's no Quentin Tarantino production, but hey, we all got to start somewhere right ! xD ..and yes, that's me in that video ! ;P Patrick
  4. Haha yea the rich and famous need coffee as much as us mortals xD Hope to include a variety of useful add-ons, improving aesthetic and new functions for more brewing options ! Thank for your wishes ! Much appreciated ! ;D
  5. [quote name='coffeechap']@Boilbrew can you please tell me the difference between your flask and the ones on eBay as on face value it appears you have merely taken an already existing item, added anlogo and small piece of neoprene! And then doubled the price[/QUOTE] Thank you for the question. As a new startup, I think it's important to be transparent, and listen to people around me, to continuously improve Boilbrew. Similarly to how French Press was inspired by a beaker, the design of Boilbrew have taken inspiration of the florence flask, alongside inspiration from the process of brewing with French Press and traditional Norwegian Kokekaffee (steeped coffee). The glassware is very robust, and the grip makes it a functional coffee brewing flask. The high quality argues this will be a one time purchase for a product you will hopefully get lots of value from, and enjoyment on daily basis. We only have a design patent on our Brewing Flask, since the brewing process (coffee+hot water) is possible to do with any flask or beaker on the market. :)
  6. I am sketch out the outline of how to go about to create a good Boilbrew recipe list with different types of coffee, grind sizes, coffee/water ratio, and brewing time. Me personally use Boilbrew every day, and I prefer a medium to fine grind, with a ratio of about 1:30 (15g coffee/460ml water), which might seem very weak, but adding patience, I brew it for about 7minutes+/-, and the result is a good, strong cup of black coffee. I don't usually (never), put milk in the coffee, but if you do, you might want to increase the ratio a bit.
  7. Yes I think a stopper/lid is a good idea ! As we are a small start-up, we had to focus our resources on the most important parts of the brewing flask, following a lean startup strategy.
  8. [quote name='dfk41']@Boilbrew I like the simplicity of this, bt one question. How successful is this method to ensure that no sediment gets into the cup?[/QUOTE] Close to perfect. Let the grounds soak and settle, and pour the coffee slowly. You will be able to see the grounds and how they eventually stick to the inside of the brewing flask. I have acouple pictures and a video on it on our Instagram page. If you search Boilbrew on YouTube, you will also find two videos we made. A comment from our first video, resulted in the creating of the second video. Check out the comments of both videos for an unbiased answer ! ;)
  9. We offer free worldwide shipping from boilbrew.com for a price of £29.90. Due to that fact it's a new product from an unknown company in a super competitive market at Amazon, we decided to reduce the price to £20.99 for now. For UK customers I suggest to buy it from Amazon.co.uk/boilbrew since it is a lot cheaper. We also offer the product to more than 80 countries through amazon.co.uk, but depending on the delivery address, Amazon shipping rates might be way too much, so if the total Amazon price is more than £29.90, I suggest buying it from our webpage for the best deal !
  10. [quote name='dfk41']@Boilbrew Hey Patrick, welcome to the forum. Check your protective armour is in place, as you will get flack and leg pulling in amongst the odd bit of encouragement. Whether it is a simple idea or not is irrelevant. many years ago, Iw as at an artists house and he had taken a couple of thousand matches, struck them and let them burn for different amounts before arranging them in a pattern and framing it. I said, yes, but I could have done that. he retorted, yes, but you did not. This is a large vibrant forum. I would have a word with Glenn about advertising. I would then offer say a dozen people (my name at the top of the list) the chance to buy one of these at a bargain price, then review it. The catch is you cannot alter the review or comments. if it is good, it will reflect back and be worth a lot of kudos to you[/QUOTE] Hi dfk41 ! Thank you for your words of wisdom ! Love your story, and I think it holds a very good point. Exposing yourself with something yu believe in, will always be subject to good and bad, but it's just part of life and being humans. I will reach out to Glenn about the possibilities for advertising. I am also putting down your name, since I really like your idea about offering a bargain to let people test out and give feedback on it ! Give me a couple days to organise something after I've had the change to reach out to Glenn ! Cool you took the time to share the story and some great suggestions ! xD
  11. Hey ! Really appreciate your suggestions ! I love the idea of being about to provide a whole range of brewing recipes ! Definitely something I will make sure sure !
  12. Hahaha well, similar to a condom, the silicone rubber grip makes a big difference !
  13. True ! Used in labs, so it makes for a perfect coffee maker tool
