Coffee addicts up and down the country understand the frustration and inconvenience of having to clean dregs and residue from used cafetieres. Degono has launched a Kickstarter campaign to put an end to the repeated cleaning of cups and mugs with its groundbreaking tea and coffee press designed to prevent coffee grounds and tea leaves from contaminating hot drinks.

The ultra-chic cleaning system makes removal of coffee grounds easy, utilising the innovative GROUNDSAWAY cleaning system. As the first model of its type to do so, the system makes use of a second filter that nestles at the bottom of the jug trapping stray grounds for effortless removal.

Degono teamed its radical concept with one of the UK’s leading product design companies to rectify existing issues in the cafetieres market such as poorly positioned handles and malfunctioning filters. The finished prototype has refined the process and makes use of many integral features including a soft-grip handle, knuckle protection, dual filters, heat protecting pedestal and anti-spin ridges.

The piece de resistance of the prototype is the GROUNDSAWAY mechanism which separates the grounds from the brew. The innovative grab and release device enables the filter to separate from the cafetiere. Users can then empty the cafetiere in one carefree motion, using a push button to release dregs into the garbage. Utilising a super-fine mesh system, grit is retained whilst a fresh cuppa is free to drain through, and the silicone seals prevent grounds from leeching into beverages.

James Thain, Sales & Marketing Director said, “We are a nation of tea and coffee lovers and most of us have several a day. It’s frustrating having to constantly clean cafetieres to get your brew just right and prevent it being contaminated with grounds. That’s why we honed in on what makes a cafetiere work. We conducted a lot of research into what people wanted and how to make it a reality. Our goal is to reach £27k by December 13th so that we can make the Degono tea and coffee press a reality in everyday lives.”

With 17 days to go and 51 backers at present, the campaign requires a further push to drive it home. Modern, stylish and utterly effective, the Degono tea and coffee press is the ideal instalment in the home or office of any tea or coffee connoisseur looking to make the perfect cuppa.
