ARCA X-Tract Brew. Heat-resistant borosilicate glass jug with a patented double-layer filtration system. The filters are produced using a traditional etching technology, which ensures a minimal transfer of coffee grounds into your cup. Highly skilled glass blowers make the handmade glass jugs. The lid is made of porcelain with a patented silicone ring that holds the lid close to the jar to prevent the lid from getting into your freshly brewed coffee when you pour.

“Soulful Coffee & Tea”

Carl Henkel was founded in 1903 in northern Germany, and in 2010 Carl Henkel GmbH. From the get-go, the principle of sustainability was a cornerstone in the development of brewers for both coffee and tea. Hand-filtered and simple filter systems, sustainable and without waste products such as filter bags. The most important products in the Carl Henkel range were the innovative zero-waste coffee brewers and functional tea pots for brewing loose tea. Carl Henkel wanted to preserve the original taste and individual aromas of coffee and tea. It should be easy and economical to brew sustainably and brew savory coffee or tea in an environmentally friendly way.

Infusion allows you to make your coffee exactly as you would like it at any time. What do we mean by that? You can use any grind quality, quantity of coffee or water temperature. Anything is possible as long as you like it. From a fruity cold brewed coffee on a hot summer’s day to a strong, dark after-dinner brew. It all depends on how you love your coffee at that time of day. Maybe you enjoy coffee by adding flavour shots to your hot cup. Maybe some gin to your cold brew – it’s up to you, let your imagination run free.

The invention of SoftBrew

In 2010, the company Carl Henkel took a quantum leap towards sustainability when, in collaboration with renowned designer George Sowden, they developed their first SoftBrew jug. The pitcher brews coffee using infusion. This means zero waste and maximum flexibility. Depending on the coffee, the degree of roasting and the degree of grinding, the coffee can achieve the taste and aroma you want. As with tea brewing, infusion is the most natural way to treat the coffee. The first pitcher in production is called Sowden SoftBrew Oskar, and it still ranks in the range as the original SoftBrew.

The purpose of the filter is to keep the ground coffee apart from the water. Thousands of microscopic holes allow the water to flow into the filter. The infusion provides the typical 'body' of an excellent brew. No grumble, but still with volume from the fine grains. The method is simple; Place the filter in the porcelain pan, pour coffee into the filter and then add warm water. It takes 10 seconds to brew this way - after 4 minutes the infusion is done and the coffee is ready!
