reverse  atmospheric infusion: revolutionizing the craft beverage industry one cup at a time.
 

FOR OVER 100 YEARS, STEEPING & INFUSION HAVE REMAINED UNCHANGED.

Until now.

Reverse Atmospheric Infusion™ (RAIN™). Three little words that will change beverage extraction as we know it. Standard brewing methods are limited by standard atmospheric pressure. RAIN™ changes the rules by reducing the atmospheric pressure around tea, coffee, herbs or dried fruit, etc. This control over negative pressure (pressure below normal atmospheric pressure) allows for the extraction of deep and layered flavor profiles that can be customized by chefs, mixologists, or baristas. RAIN’s benefits equally apply to cold brew and alcohol infusion applications. Get ready for some damn fine beverages.

  • RAIN 101

    RAIN is a simple, yet powerful invention. Vacuums are used to remove the air trapped in an organic material’s cellular structure to enhance the way in which infusion occurs and how soluble elements are extracted into a beverage. The use of multiple vacuum cycles allows the extraction to occur at the deepest layers of cellular structure. The results are deep and layered flavor profiles that are truly unmatched.

  • We just changed the rules of extraction.

    Negative-pressure infusion variables – vacuum depth, vacuum duration and vacuum
    frequency – provide greater control over extraction resulting in a finished product with
    unmatched flavors and consistency.

    less contact time =
    cleaner flavors = omg!

    RAIN’s control over negative pressure allows the extraction to occur with greater accuracy and with less exposure to flavor-damaging hot water. The result is a smoother finish and preserved flavors. And that means one damn fine beverage.

    "When compared to traditional tea brewing methods, the RAIN process extracts a significantly greater number of compounds from the tea, which explains why the BKON Craft Brewer produces a more complex, full bodied, and balanced cup of tea."
