Brewfish gets its name from its filtering system, which is shaped like a fish and has two silicone disks. The bottom disk ("GoodSeal"), which does the pressing, has a stainless-steel mesh filter so you can brew with fine grind coffee or loose teas. The top disk, which is hinged, seals the container and traps in the heat if you keep it flat/closed. If you tilt it slightly, you can drink or pour from the Brewfish.
The brewing/serving combo is the brainchild of Gary Ross, who has been designing innovative coffee and tea gadgets since he founded housewares company Highwave in 1982. (Coffee lovers swear by Highwave’s MoJOEmo, a leak-proof stainless steel thermos mug that keeps hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold for up to eight hours.) The Brewfish container is made from double-walled borosilicate glass, which is superb for retaining heat, and has a non-slip silicone base.
You can choose your own coffee or tea, control the brewing intensity, and take the Brewfish to work, running errands, or around town. Finally, a coffee maker that multitasks as well as you do!
