Just when you think they’ve created every conceivable way of making a cup of coffee — French press, cold brew, vitamin-infused, multi infusions, IoT-enabled — along comes a new gadget to remind you that, nope! As long as there are coffeeheads around the world, there will be people working to invent new techniques to extract even more nuance and flavor from every last drop of the good stuff.
Out of Colombia comes the FrankOne, a new brewing system that uses “vacuum extraction technology” to create their espresso-like coffee. It’s a small electric device which sits on an accompanying carafe. Put your coffee grounds in the top, pour hot water over them, and then push a button to fire up FrankOne’s electric system. It creates a vacuum in the chamber to pull the water through the grinds and into the vessel.
