It can be difficult in the world of specialty coffee to find a brewer that not only looks fantastic but also produces a fantastic product. Eva Solo has done an exceptional job of combining both elements into the Cafe Solo. The Solo seems a little strange upon first glance for the very reason that it may be the first coffee brewer of its kind: one that is clothed. The designers at Eva Solo had the ingenious idea of using the same material that keeps divers warm (neoprene) and wrapping it around the glass carafe... thus keeping the coffee hot during the 4 minute brewing period.

Not only are its looks something to take seriously, but the Solo's coffee is not to be underestimated. Because of its use of "total immersion" brewing (similar to that of a french press), the grounds are evenly and completely submersed in water. This provides extraction that is difficult to achieve by other methods of brewing. It is advisable, however, that once the 4 minutes of extraction is complete, the coffee should be immediately served or transferred into a thermal pot (we recommend one of the Zojirushi carafes). This will prevent over-extraction from taking place which results in a bitter tasting coffee.

The Cafe Solo is unquestionably a unique and exceptional specialty coffee manual brewer. Because of its simple usability and superior design, the Cafe Solo is a force to be reckoned with in the specialty coffee world.

    • Pour medium-coarse ground coffee into the carafe
    • Pour boiling hot water (we recommend 200 deg. F water) into the carafe
    • Using the provided plastic paddle, stir the grounds and water for 10-20 seconds
    • Put the lid on and allow the coffee sit for 4 minutes until the grounds are fully extracted
    • Immediately serve the coffee or pour it into a pre-heated thermal pot (we recommend a Zojirushi carafe) so it does not become over-extracted.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect for me I have a IL Eva Solo, but I am the only coffee drinker in home, so the small Eva is perfect for me and my two cups of coffee in the morning. Very clean taste. I useda felt pen to mark the outside for the exact 16 oz plus grind three coffee measure of beans and I am content. The price is still about 10-15 dollars to high though, and I waited for the holiday discount before buying it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Elegant full-immersion brewer If you like metal-filtered coffee and are game for a bit of a splurge, the Eva Solo is a brewer worth a serious look. Here the emphasis is on minimal agitation (pouring through the filter after the steep instead of pressing); do things right and you'll end up with almost a cupping-style brew. Great for preserving delicate aromatics. Fines are present but minimal, assuming your grinder is decent. In terms of size, when pushed to the limit this 0.6-L model can handle coffee for two if both of you like small cups. Overall, though, I'd recommend stepping up to the 1.0-L Solo in such situations. Clean-up isn't terrible at all but does pretty much require a bottle brush or similar. I'm docking 1 star for price and hard-to-find replacement parts, but I do fully recommend the Eva Solo. For much more info., feel free to check the thread I maintain here: Any questions? Ask away! Cheers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A revelation I'll be honest, after the first attempt on the Eva Solo, I almost packed it back in the box and sent it back. It was that bad. I know now the grind was way too fine and there were probably other problems. But from the second batch on, it has been giving me spectacular cups. The sweetness and juiciness from the Eva Solo is tremendous. It has quickly become my favorite brewing device. Not too tough to clean. Doesn't need constant attention during the brew. Looks nice. Negatives? Uh, ok. There is a bit of a learning curve to getting the neoprene jacket on. There is a decent amount of sediment that may surprise any guests you have that weren't expecting it. I try to compost as much as I can, but there is a good chunk of grounds after each batch that get rinsed down the disposal. And it is a longer brew time than almost any other method. Conclusion: I really don't mind the negatives because what goes in the cup is so delicious. I'm going to experiment with pouring through a paper filter to see if I can remove some of the sediment without affecting the taste. But overall, I just love this thing. Final note: I only make enough for what I am drinking immediately so I can't comment on how it would taste if kept in the brewer beyond the 4 minute mark. The instructions say you can do that, but I haven't tried it and don't plan on it.
