HARIO introduces a coffee dropper with a new concept – Immersion dripper SWITCH

SWITCH Technical data

TOKYO, JAPAN, 2019-Apr-18 — /EPR Retail News/ — In the spring of 2019, HARIO introduced a new coffee drop-off called SWITCH.

The brewing method can change the taste, aroma and strength of the coffee, even if it is brewed from the same beans. There are two basic ways to brew coffee. In one, the ground coffee is filtered with a device such as the V60. In this process, hot water is poured over the ground coffee several times at regular intervals. In the other method, the French Press or Siphon method, the ground coffee is dipped in hot water for a certain time, after which the coffee and ground coffee are separated ,

The SWITCH is easy to use. Put a paper filter in the dripper, pour water over the ground coffee and wait about 2 minutes. Then press the switch and the brewed coffee will run down.

An attractive feature of the SWITCH is the easy way to customize the brewing conditions. Simply vary the degree of grinding of the ground coffee and the brewing time to your taste.

The SWITCH offers the rich aroma of the French Press method with the clear taste of paper drop brewing, giving you the best of both brewing methods in a single dropper.

With the SWITCH you can always prepare coffee under the same brewing conditions. It will be a pleasure for you to compare the flavors of different coffee beans in this way.

With the SWITCH, HARIO will familiarize many customers with the infusion of coffee and introduce the excellent taste of the infused coffee.

Nintendo’s highly-anticipated new console, Switch arrives at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide

Nintendo’s highly-anticipated new console, Switch arrives at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide


WAYNE, NJ, 2017-Mar-06 — /EPR Retail News/ — Gamers, rejoice! This Friday, March 3, Nintendo’s highly-anticipated new console, Switch, will hit shelves at Toys“R”Us stores nationwide – no preorder required! A combination home console and handheld, Switch delivers an entirely new way to play whenever and wherever you want. At home, Nintendo Switch rests in a dock that connects to your TV and lets you play to your heart’s content – right from the comfort of your couch. You can also take Switch on-the-go – just remove from the dock and instantly transition to handheld mode. If one toy expert’s opinion isn’t enough, check out our President of Play getting a sneak peak at the game before it hits shelves!

Now, before you skip out of the store gleefully holding onto your beloved new console, don’t forget – games for Switch are sold separately! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart are two must-haves if you’re a fan of the classics like me. And, if you like playing in a group, Toys“R”Us will have additional Joy-Con controllers in stock to ensure no one is left out.

Nintendo fans have been waiting patiently (well, for the most part) for this one, so if it’s on your list I suggest getting in line at your local Toys“R”Us store early this Friday (doors open at 9 am). As a resident toy expert, I’ve been around for several of these console launches, and with limited quantities, I’m expecting Switch to sell out faster than a Mushroom Cup race. And, if you miss out, keep checking back with your local store – I have a feeling more will be hitting our shelves in the near future!  About Nicole Hayes: Nicole spent her childhood using her imagination to bring to life everything from the world of LEGOs and the original Nintendo’s Super Mario Brothers, to My Little Ponies and Rainbow Brite. As a first-time mom and a true Toys“R”Us kid with nine years of experience working with beloved brands, such as Thomas the Tank Engine, Strawberry Shortcake, Barney, Cabbage Patch and Atari, Nicole is sure to know the best toys to buy and secrets to share on this season’s hottest items.
