Orea Brewer V3 BASALT
The world's best brewer, back in matte black.
The OREA V3 BASALT is a throwback to the original OREA V1 with a luxurious satin matte black finish. Bringing back a matte black version has been a big request from people and this particular unit has been in the making for a long time. This brewer is classed as limited edition so get it whilst you can!
Here are some of the advantages of the Orea:
Fast flow rate
A faster flow rate gives us a wider range and more versatility. Go from just above espresso ground to coarse ground in one beautiful brewer. This allows you to explore a whole new set of brewing approaches and get more out of any coffee.
The Orea Brewer has a unique ring design and a totally flat bed, which reduces inconsistencies experienced with other flat-bed brewers. Because there are less factors at play, you will inherently have more consistent brews. The fact that you don't have a series of small holes that can easily clog, there is less potential for stalling. Finally, because the bed is totally flat, adding more coffee won't impact flow and consistency.
Superior thermal properties
The chosen material, Polycarbonate has the lowest thermal conductivity rate from any plastic we could find. It acts as an insulator - which you will notice as you brew. It's so good at insulating (or so bad at heat transfer) that we don't need a handle or a sleeve, because it doesn't get too hot to the touch. This means that the heat and energy remain in the coffee bed while brewing, rather than escaping. This will increase extraction and we find that it brings more sweetness in the cup.
Lightweight & packable
This brewer is incredibly light and also really small, taking a lot less volume in a bag than other brewers. It's hard to find anything to match it!
Tough & durable
There is a lot of clever marketing in the coffee brewer world - but you can rest assured that this is not an example of that. The material was chosen because it's flexible, impact-resistant, and crack-resistant.
The V3 Base is made 100% from post-consumer recycled Polypropylene plastic, right here in the UK. We collect waste before it's ever thrown in the bin, clean it, sanitise it, and shred it into new raw material. This is then re-injected into the beautiful V3 bases in an artisanal process. Your Orea V3 base will be made from rescued bottle caps, takeaway containers, and discarded tupperware. All of this, 100% local. A true waste to treasure journey, not a marketing stunt.
This is the first unit designated to a new category due to its origins and the decisions that led to it coming to life. This release introduces the "Competition Series". The first usable samples of the V3 were made by milling some solid blocks of black food safe Polycarbonate - which were blasted into a satin matte finish for Matteo D'Ottavio (the UK Brewing Champion) to use at the World Brewers Cup. Matteo has gone on to take these devices to the UK Brewers Cup and the Italian Brewers Cup since then. Matteo wanted to build his routine around optimising for thermal stability, so we picked the plastic has the lowest thermal conductivity, which has a small gain over our default polyamide.
