High school student Max Feber pitches Bruw, his cold filtered coffee system, in Shark Tank episode 1008. Feber, like many others, is a fan of cold brewed coffee. Cold brew comes from soaking coffee in cold water for a day or so, then filtering it. Cold brew coffee tends to be less acidic than hot brew and many people find it smoother. Until Feber created Bruw, there was no simple way to do this without making a mess.
His solution is simple and elegant. It's also patent-pending. The Bruw filter is a double-sided mason jar lid with a filter in the middle. Fill one jar with coffee and water, attach the lid, then screw an empty mason jar on top. When the coffee is ready, just flip it over and watch as gravity filters your coffee.
Max got his project off the ground in November of 2015 with a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised a little over $10,000. He used those funds to make the first batch of Bruw filters. Now, he sells on his website, Amazon and in IndieGoGo's marketplace.
A Bruw filter lid costs just $19.99 – $34.99 if you want the mason jars included. Feber also sells several “cold brew” coffee blends, designed specifically for cold brewing. He likely wants a Shark's help with production and distribution. Will a Shark brew up a deal for Bruw?

Bruw Shark Tank Recap
Max will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He'll need to convince Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards." A full pitch re-cap on Bruw will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
