Abstract: A coffee brewer of the type having an outer fixed cylindrical tube and a fixed piston within the tube. A sliding cylinder slides in sealing contact between the outer cylinder and the piston. The sliding cylinder has a filter at the top thereof. A frame mounts the piston head and the outer cylindrical tube, and motor means are mounted on the frame with a pair of rotors rotatably mounted on the frame, one on either side of the outer cylindrical tube about a lateral axis at right angles to the axial axis of the outer and sliding cylindrical tubes. Each rotor includes an arcuate segment with gear teeth on the periphery thereof. Gear means connect the motor to the rotors for rotating the rotors, and a cam connector connects the sliding cylinder to the rotors for sliding movement of the sliding cylindrical tube during the brewing cycle.
Abstract: A brewer for providing a single cup of coffee which comprises an outer cylindrical tubular member having an open top and a platform formed on the top. A slidable second cylindrical tubular member reciprocates within the first tubular member along the axis thereof and is provided with a gasket at the top thereof in sealing contact with the inner surface of the first tubular member. A permanent filter is provided at the top of the second cylindrical tubular member. A fixed piston head is located within the second cylindrical tubular member and is fixed relative to the first tubular member. A wiper is provided on the top platform of the first tubular member such that when the filter is in its uppermost position, the wiper can be activated to clean the coffee grounds from the filter. A pour spout is provided in the second cylindrical member which communicates with the fluid once the pour spout is above the level of the piston head.
