Pico U: Universal Brewer for Most of the Good Stuff

Have you ever imagined brewing your own beer, coffee, tea, kombucha, horchata and a host of other drinks using one smart universal machine like the Pico U? The U in its name obviously refers to its universal nature to brew just everything. While earlier incarnations of this countertop beer-brewing machine were bulky, inefficient, noisy, and designed for just a single product, the current Pico U is more compact, quiet, and versatile. If you like embracing the minimalist lifestyle where less is more, then consider getting a Pico U to simplify getting your beverage needs.

Initially funded on Kickstarter with a $50,000 goal, it has surpassed that with a total
US$ 358,256 in pledges from 1,669 backers and still 26 days to go!
