If you can’t start a busy day without a cup of coffee, you’ll appreciate FrankOne: the Kickstarter-backed, ultra fast, portable cold brew and coffee maker by Colombian company Frank de Paula. Featuring an integrated vacuum to pull water through a bed of ground coffee, the device extracts flavor in a record amount of time. In fact, this super-efficient coffee maker is so fast that it can make a full-bodied cup of hot coffee in 30 seconds and a cold brew in 4 minutes.
The FrankOne concept was born in Bogotá, Colombia over a cup of coffee between engineer Eduardo Umaña and coffee roaster Luis Fernando Vélez. “Our idea was simple, brewing coffee through a vacuum,” they recall. “After a few preliminary experiments we fell in love with the flavor that brewing through a vacuum produced.” Over the course of two years, the duo worked on several hundred prototypes before arriving at the final FrankOne design: the first coffee maker made with innovative Vacuum Extraction Technology (VacTec).
FrankOne is perfect for people on the move, as it’s not only lightweight and portable, but it features a long-lasting USB rechargeable battery. To use it, just add ground coffee and water to the top compartment and press the button to brew. For a hot cup of joe, use hot water, and for an ice-cold brew, use room temperature water. When the coffee is ready, simply pour the liquid from the hand-blown glass carafe and enjoy!
