What does it do?
The Oomph coffee maker is a filter, pressure brewer and travel cup in one. Thanks to our unique design, you can now brew exceptional coffee in under 2 minutes with minimal fuss.
Combining the best features of traditional press and modern piston brewing, the Oomph’s brewing system has the added advantage of being entirely self-contained, sealing in flavour and getting the very best out of your favourite coffee.
Once you’ve brewed, the Oomph will keep your coffee hot for up to an hour so you can decant into a mug or drink directly from the device itself.
How does it work?
Brewing with the Oomph couldn’t be simpler. After adding your favourite ground coffee into the inner chamber, pour on hot water and allow to brew. After around 1 minute of brewing on the reusable filter, the device is ready to be pressed.
Whereas a standard piston brewer generates a fixed amount of pressure, the Oomph’s specially designed chamber narrows towards the filter, forcing liquid through the coffee at an accelerated flow rate. The rate of erosion is therefore greatly increased and thanks to the higher level of insolubles in your coffee, you are guaranteed a stronger and more flavoursome brew.
Once fully pressed, the grounds are compacted beneath the piston. Although the process all takes place in a sealed unit, your brewed coffee is cleverly forced up, through the outer wall and back into the central chamber, ready to drink. This means that the grounds and liquid are kept separate, creating an anti-bitterness lock as the extraction process is stopped completely.
The Oomph is the only device on the market capable of adjusting your brew. Using our patented variable strength control system, you can simply unlock and reverse the press. The internal piston will draw the liquid back through the coffee grounds, allowing you to brew for longer before pressing again and locking in the flavour once more.
Brainchild of engineer and coffee enthusiast, Matthew Deasy, the original prototype was devised in 2009. After many years of refinement and testing the Oomph coffee maker was finally launched as a Kickstarter project in November 2015.
The device went on to become the most successful coffee gadget ever on any UK crowdfunding platform, reaching a huge 234% of its original target. After fulfilling 2,493 crowdfunding orders, the Oomph was launched to the general public in December 2016 and is now making great coffee in kitchens, offices and many other places around the world.
