SAN FRANCISCO (December 15, 2016) – Fellow’s project started out with one simple question: Can we design an electric pour-over kettle that finally pours as good as it looks?
After 10 months and countless prototypes later, Fellow set the bar high and landed upon Stagg EKG, an electric pour-over kettle with variable temperature control, optional Bluetooth app connectivity, and a stunning, minimalist design.
After launching the product on Kickstarter, Stagg EKG blew past its 60-day $100,000 Kickstarter goal in only 24 hours. To date, Fellow has raised over $103,000 from more than 750 backers.
“The outpouring of support on Kickstarter shows there was a gap in the market needing to be filled,” said Jake Miller, founder and CEO of Fellow. “With Stagg EKG, we were able to meld handsome design and barista-level functionality in one.”
Stagg EKG makes it easy to brew top-notch coffee at home with many innovative features:
Variable Temperature Control – By turning the intuitive twist dial, you select your desired temperature ranging from 135°F to 212°F.
HOLD Option – When the toggle on the back is switched to HOLD mode, Stagg EKG will maintain your desired temperature in Fahrenheit and Celsius for 30 minutes.
Precision Pour Spout – Stagg EKG’s spout is designed for the optimal pour-over flow rate with to-the-drop precision.
Counterbalanced Handle – A weighted handle shifts the center of the mass closer to your hand for an easier pour.
Ready to kick your brewing up even another notch? Fellow has partnered with Acaia to create the ultimate tool for a connected café or a true coffee nerd. The Stagg EKG+ Powered by Acaia has all of Stagg EKG’s features and then some using Bluetooth app connectivity.
Turn Stagg EKG+ on/off and set goal temperature from Brewbar tablet app

Talks to the Acaia scale and the Baratza grinder. Stagg EKG+, Acaia scales, and the Baratza Sette 270W will be able to work in tandem to produce a café’s recipes with ease and precision at a touch of a button.
