The Aquach is a stylish glass carafe with a stainless steel filter. It’s defined by its unique insertable stainless steel neck which also holds the filter. The filter lifts out with a little handle and the stopper is a good fit with or without the filter inserted. 

The brew quality of the Aquach is a little below par since its fine filter doesn’t allow for enough cross-flow during brewing. It does, however, give a better quality brew than the Goodful. The Goodful is a large all-plastic brewer. It has a spill-proof design, but the lid is clunky and cumbersome. A similar but much better brewer to the Goodful is the Takeya.
