Cast Iron Teapots from SCI

SCI for webSCI (Scandicrafts Cuisine Internationale) carries an impressive collection of artistically crafted cast iron teapots. Each teapot is designed with exquisite detail. All uniquely display a warm sense of tradition with a contemporary flair.

Each of SCI’s teapots comes with a matching cast iron trivet. Some sets also include matching teacups. Each teapot includes a removable stainless steel mesh infuser, making it perfect for both loose leaves and tea bags.

Cast iron teapots are ideal since the cast iron distributes the heat evenly inside the pot to better extract the flavors and health benefits of your tea. A distinctively appealing taste is acquired only from brewing tea in a cast iron teapot. Cast iron teapots develop a seasoning from repeated use, producing richly flavored cups of tea that are each more delicious than the last.

Suggested retail prices range from $63.00 to $80.00.

A Checklist of Drip Coffee Makers from Capresso for Better Brews

There are many ways to brew coffee, but the drip coffee maker continues to reign supreme as the most popular brewing method in the U.S. According to the National Coffee Association (NCA), 50 percent of daily coffee drinkers brewed their coffee with a drip coffee maker, significantly more than the single cup brewer, French press, pour over and stovetop methods combined.

Traditionally known for their ease of use and reliability, drip coffee makers today have advanced features that add convenience and enhance taste and aroma.

Advanced features, such as permanent filter, optimal brewing temperature, small cup setting and drip stop, come standard with Capresso drip coffee makers. Capresso offers this checklist of additional features for comparing a variety of models. The removable water tank makes refilling quick and easy.

Coffee gets progressively stronger as a pot of drip coffee is brewed. Without this special setting, a small pot of three to five cups will not have the same full bodied flavor as a full pot. A drip coffee maker can also be programmed to initiate brewing right before the coffee lover gets up in the morning so a fresh pot is waiting — or right before dessert.

Charcoal water filtration removes impurities from the water that would otherwise degrade the taste. An automatic filter indicator alerts the user when the filter needs to be changed. A permanent GoldTone filter replaces paper filters and is dishwasher safe. This saves money over time, and it avoids the environmental waste of paper filters that are used once and then discarded.

Drip stops come in handy when someone wants a cup of coffee now. It interrupts the machine during the brewing process to pour a cup, and then continues the brewing cycle.

This will cause a valve at the bottom to release: crystal-clear tea flows down, while the mesh filter retains all the leaves at the bottom. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe and made in Taiwan of food-grade plastic. It comes with a durable stainless steel mesh filter and “BPA-free” pre-printed on the multi-lingual box.

De’Longhi to Acquire Interest in Eversys

Eversys SA and the De’Longhi Group have agreed that the Italian De’Longhi Group will acquire 40 percent of the Swiss Eversys Group, to include a two-way option whereby the remaining 60 percent would be transferred to De’Longhi within the next two to four years.

Eversys SA, located in Ardon (VS), specializes in the engineering, manufacturing and international commercialization of fully automatic espresso machines, designed for the professional Horeca market. The company was founded in 2009.

The Italian De’Longhi Group is a publicly held manufacturer of household appliance products and is the global market leader in the segment of coffee machines for the home. In 2016 the group achieved a turnover of €1.85bn and employs more than 7,100 people in multiple countries.

With the investment in Eversys, De’Longhi takes the first step into the professional espresso coffee market, with a focus on the fully automatic machines segment. “Eversys brings a wealth of technology, a management team with proven experience in the sector and the ambition to become a leading player in the global professional coffee market. This partnership is also driven by the technological, industrial and distribution synergies, which De’Longhi is able to assure,” says Fabio De’Longhi, Vice-Chairman and CEO of the De’Longhi Group.

“For Eversys the partnership with De’Longhi creates a significant potential of synergies, which will contribute to accelerate and secure our ambitious development plans. In addition, it offers the midterm possibility for the founders and current shareholders to resolve their succession strategy,” says Martin Strehl, Chairman and Delegate of the Board of Eversys.

Eversys will continue to operate as a strategically separate entity, led by the previous management team and remaining located in the Region of the Valais, in Switzerland. The closing of the transaction is expected before mid-July 2017.
