Applica Consumer Products, Inc. with co-developer, Procter & Gamble introduces the Home Café™ system: a single-cup brewing system that offers coffeehouse style coffee in your home.
The Home Café™ system features a Black & Decker® branded brewer that incorporates Folgers and Millstone coffees. The Black & Decker® Home Café™ brewer showcases an exclusive brewing system that forces hot water through the ground beans at high pressure, a technique commonly employed in leading coffeehouses. The process consistently produces a high-quality, single serving of coffee in just one minute. The brewer allows you to customize the amount and brew strength of your coffee by setting the system for a 7-ounce, 9-ounce, or 14-ounce cup size.
The system uses individually packaged Folgers or Millstone coffee pods containing a precisely measured portion of coffee for first-cup freshness every time. The coffee pods make the Home Café™ system easy to clean, with no messy coffee grounds, filters, or baskets. The single-cup brewing system also eliminates the problem of wasting an entire pot of coffee, enabling every family member to enjoy his or her favorite cup of coffee anytime. To use the brewer, a Folgers coffee pod is simply placed into the pod tray, and at the touch of a button you can enjoy a fresh-brewed coffeehouse-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your home. Folgers coffee pods come in a variety of roasts including mild, medium, and dark, as well as regular and decaffeinated varieties. Folgers will offer its most popular roast blends, Classic Roast, Classic Decaf, 100-percent Columbian, and French Vanilla. Millstone will offer French Roast, Columbian Supremo, and Hazelnut Cream.
MSRP is $59.99 for the Black & Decker® Home Café appliance.
