CARSON, Calif., June 17, 2008—Water, Inc., founded three decades ago, has built its reputation upon distributing innovative, luxury home products. One of its newest product offerings, the Brew Express built-in coffee system, is the latest to be honored for just that. Attendees of the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s recent Kitchen/Bath Industry Show & Conference (K/BIS) in Chicago voted Brew Express the Best New Kitchen Product of 2008.
Brew Express now joins an elite list of recent award-winning products distributed by Water, Inc. Also this year, the Modern Mixer—Water, Inc.’s first full-scale kitchen sink faucet—won a Platinum ADEX Award, the top honor of this product-design awards program. In 2007, the Modern Mixer’s companion, the Modern Faucet accessory drinking water faucet, earned the Remodeling and Makeovers Award, presented by Woman’s Day Remodeling & Makeovers.
Brew Express, which joined Water, Inc.’s product line last December, is a built-in, fully plumbed coffee system that brews coffee at the optimum temperature. Available in four-cup, 10-cup and 12-cup models, Brew Express is appropriate for installation in homes, yachts, motor homes, offices and more. It mounts within the wall atop a counter, thereby saving counter space. Also, rather than monopolizing an electrical outlet, it actually adds two. Because Brew Express is plumbed directly to a water supply (whose quality can also be improved by water filtration systems offered by Water, Inc.) it also eliminates the need to try and fill a messy carafe.
Available in a variety of finishes and colors customizable to any décor, including various granites, metals and woodwork, Brew Express is as stylish as it is functional. Unlike traditional coffee makers, the carafe in the Brew Express sits atop a cool (not heated) pad, eliminating a potential source of burns. It is simple to program Brew Express for anywhere from a single cup up to a full pot and with a clever “Pause & Brew” feature and there’s even an automatic shutoff to prevent mishaps if the carafe is not replaced.
