Delter Coffee Press Review

Written By Delano Staff 11 May 2020
Delter Coffee Press Review
The Delter Press, like a lot of products these days, began as a Kickstarter campaign. The campaign was very successful with 548 backers raising $35 585 well over the $10 000 goal. It is developed by Delter Coffee, an Australian company located in Brisbane. It is a fairly new company created by a group of passionate coffee drinkers. So far they have only developed the Delter Press, but they have stated they are working on new coffee brewing devices, so stay tuned.
  
The Delter Press is marketed as a manual brewer that is designed to solve what they call one of the biggest problems in coffee brewing, which is uncontrolled agitation. Uncontrolled agitation is the agitation that occurs when pouring hot water directly onto the coffee, which randomly disperses all the coffee around and can result in inconsistent brews. 
 
An example of uncontrolled agitation is brewing a pourover coffee (V60, Kalita Wave, e.t.c.). When pouring the hot water onto the coffee grounds, the grounds will move around in a random and uncontrolled manner. As you don’t directly pour water onto the coffee grounds in a Delter Press the inventors claim you eliminate any uncontrolled agitation.
 
While it looks similar to an Aeropress it brews quite differently. Whereas most manual brewers use an immersion brew with the coffee and water mixed together, the Delter Press does things a bit differently. 
 
The Delter Press is a percolation brewer, it keeps the hot water and coffee in separate chambers and the user has to push the water through the coffee. As the user doesn’t pour hot water directly onto the coffee it eliminates the uncontrolled agitation that you get with most manual brewers.



 
 
After brewing multiple times with different recipes and even foregoing recipes and just going for it, the claim that it is consistent stands. Regardless of how I brewed every time the brew was pretty tasty and easy to drink. 
 

There was one recipe that I did enjoy the most and that was:

12g of coffee ground on a filter grind

200g of water

50g preinfusion (bloom) for 30sec

Push the rest of the 150g of water slowly (should take around a 1min)

Total brew time should be 1:30

Serve and enjoy
 

I really enjoyed the taste it produced, it was clean with a nice acidity, but not much body. It tastes more like a pourover coffee than an Aeropress.

It does have a few drawbacks though, the main one is that it isn’t as versatile as other brewers, specifically the Aeropress. The Delter Press will always be compared to the Aeropress as they look pretty similar and while the Aeropress has a wide range of brewing methods and drinks that you can brew, the Delter Press only has one. 

One other tiny nitpick is that it is a bit messier than other manual brewers when cleaning and there are always some coffee grounds that need to be rinsed out after brewing. These are only small issues however and I still really enjoy the brewer.

PROS

Brews delicious coffee.

Is quite consistent compared to other brewers.

Would be good for an on the go brewer as you don’t need lots of equipment.

CONS 

Not as versatile as other manual brewers.

A bit messier than other brewers to clean up.

 

To summarise I think the Delter Brewer is a great brewer, it creates consistent and tasty coffee with little effort. It is a brewer that will be great for camping and travelling and I would recommend it to anyone getting bored with your brewing equipment at home and want to try something new, or anyone who wants to start brewing consistent, tasty coffee at home and doesn’t want to splash for an expensive setup, and what better time than now, right?
