The Strong Brew:

The Strong Brew coffee maker combines pressurised and immersion brewing to give you a short, strong cup of coffee. The patented helix chamber technology was designed and developed in the UK for a streamlined twist that doesn’t apply pressure to your cup. The vacuum sealed immersion chamber features airtight silicone seals for stronger coffee extraction. But what does this all mean?

Really strong coffee.

Thanks to its innovative design, the Strong Brew makes a coffee with up to 257mg of caffeine per cup. To put that into context, an espresso contains around 84mg. We ran the test at the same time, using the same dose of the same coffee (our Rocket Man espresso roast) for the most accurate results.

The Coffee:

The Strong Brew is a compact coffee maker, no larger than a standard water bottle. It’s perfect for home use or on the go. You need 15g-18g of filter ground coffee, a filter (paper or stainless steel), and hot water. To find out more about how to use it, watch our video tutorial.

Our favourite thing about this filter coffee maker is the type of coffee it makes. If you’re familiar with coffee jargon, we’re referring to mouthfeel and body. A Strong Brew coffee is clean and crisp, with absolutely no grounds in your cup.

Use with paper filters (100 included) to create an ultra-smooth clean cup of coffee. Alternatively, use the stainless steel reusable disc filter (purchased separately) to create a medium-bodied brew.

The Science:

Caffeine is the number 1 ingredient in preworkout as it’s known for its performance enhancing qualities. We looked at hundreds of studies to try and pin point the right amount of caffeine, most agreed that you need 3mg-5mg of caffeine per kg of body weight to see improved performance.

Not only did these studies give us the correct dosage, but they also showed us that the right amount of caffeine: 

  • Makes you run faster (source)
  • Reduces time to exhaustion (source)
  • Improves CrossFit performance (source)
  • Improves ergogenic cycling performance (source)
  • If you don't love your Strong Brew, send it back. It's as simple as that. With our No Quibble Guarantee, you can try the Strong Brew coffee maker for up to 14 days. If you find that this isn't the coffee maker for you, you can send it back for a full refund.

    Step-by-Step Instructions:

    1. Preparation:

      • Gather the Strong Brew, filter papers, medium-fine ground coffee, and a scoop.
    2. Assembling:

      • Identify the upper handle section, silicone plunger, storage lid, lower handle, and helix chamber.
      • Align the marks on the helix chamber and lower handle, and twist to assemble.
      • Wet the filter paper and place it in the lower section.
    3. Coffee Loading:

      • Add 15g of coffee to the helix chamber, shake to flatten the bed.
      • Add 3x the amount of water as coffee (e.g., 45g), stir, and let it bloom for 30 seconds.
    4. Adding Hot Water:

      • Top up with hot water towards the top of the helix chamber, leaving a centimetre at the top.
      • Align the upper section with the helix chamber and press down.
    5. Brewing:

      • Allow it to brew for the desired time.
    6. Plunging:

      • After brewing, apply downward pressure and start twisting for 30 seconds.
      • If water seepage occurs, release pressure, and slowly start plunging again without reversing.
    7. Finishing:

      • As you approach the bottom of the plunge, listen for the air pressure release, and stop.
      • Shake the Strong Brew to prevent drips and enjoy your coffee as a short black or top up for a longer coffee.

    How does caffeine impact performance during workouts?

    Caffeine acts as a stimulant, enhancing alertness, focus, and energy levels. It can improve endurance, increase muscle strength, and decrease perceived exertion, making it a popular choice for athletes as a preworkout supplement.

    Can the Strong Brew be used as a preworkout stimulant?

    Absolutely! The Strong Brew is a perfect choice for those seeking a caffeine boost before their workout. With its ability to brew coffee with 60% more caffeine than a shot of espresso, it provides the ideal pick-me-up to power through your training sessions.

    How do I use the Strong Brew?

    Using the Strong Brew is simple. Just add your desired coffee grounds to the chamber, pour hot water over them, and allow it to steep for the desired brew time. Then, press down the plunger to extract the rich and strong coffee. Detailed brewing instructions are included with the product.

    What grind size should I use with the Strong Brew?

    The Strong Brew is designed to accommodate a wide range of coffee grinds. Experiment with different grind sizes to find the one that suits your taste preferences best. Coarser grinds generally work well for a cleaner cup, while finer grinds produce a fuller-bodied coffee.

    How do I clean the Strong Brew?

    Cleaning the Strong Brew is a breeze. After each use, simply disassemble the components and rinse them with warm water. The Strong Brew is also dishwasher safe, making it even more convenient to maintain its cleanliness.

    What are the dimensions and weight of the Strong Brew?

    The Strong Brew is designed to be compact and lightweight. It weighs approximately 250g and has a compact size that takes up minimal space, making it ideal for travel and small kitchens.

    Can I return the Strong Brew if I'm not satisfied with it?

    Yes! We offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact our customer support within 30 days of receiving the product to initiate the return process. We're committed to ensuring your satisfaction with the Strong Brew.

    Is the Strong Brew available in different colours or sizes?

    Currently, the Strong Brew is available in one size and colour option. However, we're always exploring opportunities to expand our product offerings based on customer demand and feedback.

    How many servings can I make with the Strong Brew's coffee storage compartment?

    The coffee storage compartment of the Strong Brew can hold approximately 45g of coffee, which is equivalent to 3 to 4 servings, depending on your preferred strength.
