@hchavers - That extra nice punch can be added at one’s convenience, and preference. So, load the carafe with your favorite Vodka, Tiquila, Rum, or whatever Whiskey you fkn desire & ENJOY!! If you’re on the wagon, please, don’t fall off the wagon, just step to the side, climb on that beer horse & ride till you can’t no more!! Ride that Old Town Rode with a few ice cold Bud Lites & be happy you made it through one more day of fkn sobriety, of living & living fkn sober!¡! Life’s Just Not Worth Ruining Even One Moment, But Life IS Worth Living!! My PTSD, At Least, Taught Me That Much!!
@paulg1982, I think you can buy either Brewer Set & brew either Coffee, or Tea outta the same Brewer!! The Fuckn Brewer doesn’t know the fkn difference does it? Am I right, or wrong¿? Someone, please, let me know, so’s I can buy 1 of these damn brewers!!
Uhh what? What part of this is automatic? I’m the one putting in the grounds, water AND batteries! And I have to wash the top part after every brew? Sheesh! I’ll stick to my beloved cone and my #4 filters, thanks.
I would prefer this to the $20 POS drip brewers out there. Honestly, it’s probably pretty good. There are so many options that it’s hard to keep track. I’ve been using an aeropress with a microwave and an electric grinder for a couple of years, but geez, am I really getting better coffee than pour-over/stove-kettle/manual-grinder guy? Almost anything is better than K-cups or drip folgers, just pick something different and go with it if you care about your coffee.
@spavlis@Superllama7@tweezak Agree with the previous two comments. I have the Motif Essentials, and I don’t get a better cup of coffee anywhere than I do at home. I just keep half and half and turbinado sugar on hand. Best coffee maker I’ve had. As far as options the Ninja Coffee bar I had was pretty impressive and brewed great iced coffee.
@spavlis@Superllama7 In terms of the presoak delay, I press the green buttin and watch until all the grounds are soaked. Then hit the green button a second time to turn it off. I let it sit for about a minute and then press it again and it’s fine after that. I guess you’d call it “manual mode.”
If you’re going to get fancy with loose leaf teas, you might want to invest in a variable temp kettle. If you steep white/yellow/green teas too hot, you lose a lot of the flavor and it gets bitter. Black/roobios/herbals are a lot more forgiving.
@mtb002 the part that varies in tea is the temperature and steep duration. You can adjust both of these with this, so it seems alright. You’re heating your own water (I would use my varieTEA as you mentioned) to the desired temp for the color of tea, then set the timer on this device for the time for the temperature. It actually would work out pretty well. I’m always ADDed out when my 2 minute timer goes off for my green tea and I don’t reach it in time to push the plunger on my steeper. This would be great for my ADHD ass.
I gotta go, I think I see something shiny.
@mtb002@uebergod I don’t know about coffee but this seems pretty nice for tea. I do have an adjustable temperature kettle and am waiting on some genmaicha to be delivered. I only make a cup at a time though.
@EvilSmoo This is part of what I really like about meh. Who felt that there was a (real) market for this product? Its market is people who are tea connoisseurs but are too busy to actually monitor the tea. That’s a very tiny segment (all excellent people, I’m sure, but not many of them). Too busy? Teabag. Iconic Tea connoisseur? Spend time making the tea. End result? Dump the product on Meh (where it seems there may be enough of a market - at an unsustainable price).
We seem to have started a coffee making collection. I bought 3! Not sure why, maybe an extras for a Christmas present or 2. Put one in the camper! I couldn’t decide between 2 coffee and a tea, or all coffee. Ended up with all coffee. I’m still trying to decide whether to change my order or not, to get one tea, Hmmm
It may be stupid because you still have to manually boil water and pour it over the grounds - but at least it also puts a few batteries in a landfill a couple times a year.
Seriously - boil the water in a pot, drop in the coffee, and use one of the dozen timers that’s probably on your smartphone to time it before you pour it through this. You’ll get the same points on your hipster punch card without plastic and batteries.
@radi0j0hn Woah! Tea drinkers matter.Now my filtered, perfect temperature water will grace my tea leaves for the correct duration of time and no longer. There are already a ton of options for butt mud(coffee).
Almost nothing automatic about this. It simply mashes the pour-over method with automatic drip and takes away the best things about both methods (controlled pour, clean filter, actual design, automation, etc.). Absolute meh.
My intense curiosity about coffee making things pulls me toward this, but >nope<. Too much prep, too much clean up. A thrift store near by acquired a dozen vintage “Mr. Coffee Away From Home” 4 cup units from a dead motel. Better build quality than the current 20-buckers and it was $3. Also fun that it looks like you stole it.
This is the first thing I’ve purchased from Meh and IT IS AMAZING! I was super stoked for it to arrive and had my tea picked out and waiting when it came. I gave it a nice wash, added my tea leaves and hot water, set the timer… and (as usual) I forgot about it. I heard the beep and as as I was thinking “what is that?” my tea was safely released into the carafe. Perfection! No longer will my tastebuds suffer from the bitterness of overbrewed tea because of my inability to focus. My TaC brewer has already earned a place next to my water filter and temp control kettle. I am not a coffee drinker but for my serious tea folks out there this is well worth it. My only regret is that I only purchased one. Hopefully, they’ll come back for an encore.
@jnicholson0619 check your spam folder… they are usually pretty quick (a day or so). They did make some changes to their support recently, try the “I need help with this” button in “your orders” if they didn’t get caught in the spam trap.
I ordered two of the tea brewers and one coffee brewer, but I received two coffee and only one tea. Hoping that meh makes it right…I’ve never had to return anything to Meh. How is the customer support here? Never have had an issue and am always happy with what I’ve received. I suppose I need to crack open the tea brewer and one of the coffee brewers to make sure they are in good working order.
They are shipping me a second tea brewer Took a couple days to get back to me, but they did and solved the problem bing bang boom. Go meh. I have bought quite a few things recently seems like cooler stuff lately
I ordered two of these items. I put fresh batteries in both of them. One unit works great(coffee maker). The tea unit, though I can’t seem to get it to work. If I push the power button, I hear a noise, but no light or number appears like with the coffee maker. If I keep pushing power button, I get an “FA” code. Instructions say nothing about an “FA” code.
SO I opened it up to make sure it was intact, and it was.
Then I cleaned it up and played… this is a pretty cool gizmo.
I suspect had they priced it normally (msrp it at 39.99 and sell for 20) it would have sold a few… they could put them next to the french presses in stores.
I have also found that it works great with a previous meh offering… so if you bought any of these break one out and place the ring upon… just don’t fill the TaC to the top line (the line under max) since they are not as big as the included carafe.
So far my only complaint about this thing is it will occasionally pop the filter up letting ground coffee through into the finished product. The first time I figured maybe I didnt seat the metal filter or dumped water in just the wrong way, the second time 2 days later(it worked fine on saturday) I was relaxing scrolling through fb, and heard a pop, and the filter had come up and hit the top cover? Is this normal?
@Huffie86 I have made aprox. 10 jugs o’ coffee and it hasn’t happened to me… but the jars are glass and the filter is plastic… I could see a mfg defect causing it to happen. Unscrew the ball bearing mechanism from the bottom and look at the jar where the filter hits… is it circular? Is the filter circular? If not might be a defect.
Had my coffee grinds and warm room temp water sitting overnight in the top jug , filled up to the to 1000ml line…in the morning I held the power button for a sec , until the 60 second timer started up. I tried this multiple times but coffee would NOT pour.
So I tried this…I emptied out the top jog , into third empty container I had around the kitchen… With top jug now empty I cleaned the top jug and the metal+plastic filter assembly. I could see that my last night’s coffee grinds had soiled and hardened up around the bottom filter…washed it all out in the sink, put everything back, and poured my dirty coffee back into the top jug. Hit the power button waited 60 sec for the countdown, out came nice clean filtered warm brew! Putting it now in the fridge and mixing with ice cubes to make it cold brew.
