  • Meet the Maker Podcast: Max Feber of BRUW

    The Grommet office is located just outside of Boston, the unofficial iced coffee capital of the world. There is no temperature too cold for an iced coffee in Boston.

    12 degrees? That just keeps it iced longer.

    For those who love iced coffee but want the next best thing, there’s cold brew coffee. There is no ice to water it down, it's less acidic, it’s more caffeinated. But it wasn’t always easy to make, something Max Feber learned the hard way in his kitchen as a high school sophomore. So he created BRUW to make making cold brew easier and cleaner.

  • Come See What We Found For the Holidays

    What are you searching for this holiday season? A better gift? A more unique one? If you’re nodding your head in agreement, you’ve come to the right place.

    And with your help, we’re trying to build a world where better ideas win. It starts this holiday season.

    You’ve probably seen a few of those better ideas mysteriously wrapped up on our site, on social media, or across the internet. If you’ve been wondering what they are, allow us to unwrap a couple of them.

    When opened, this curiously shaped package reveals a friendly robot that helps teach kids how to code.

    Rip this intriguing present open and it will delight anyone who enjoys a scoop or an entire pint of ice cream. This ergonomic ice cream scoop allows you to enjoy that ice cream right out of the freezer without straining your wrist.
