A beverage brewer includes a water reservoir in which water is heated to a predetermined brewing temperature by a resistance heater element within the reservoir. To initiate a brewing cycle cold water is admitted to the reservoir for a predetermined time period through an electrically operated fill valve to displace a predetermined volume of heated water from the reservoir. The heated water flows through a beverage filter containing coffee or tea to a serving beaker. A temperature interlock circuit having a temperature sensing element in the reservoir pr...
A beverage brewing apparatus comprising: a hot water reservoir; inlet means for admitting cold water into said reservoir; a resistance heating element within the reservoir operable from an applied electric current for heating water in the reservoir; dispensing means including user-actuable solenoid valve for dispensing heated water from the reservoir; temperature sensing means for producing a signal indicative of the temperature of the water in said reservoir; and interlock circuit means responsive to said temperature-indicative signal for inhibiting the...
