Up to 40% Increase in Yield Per Pound
This is achieved by using a patent-pending process that provides 16 to 22% extraction %. This compares to 10 to 15% extraction % of dissolved solids for typical immersion brewing.
Fast Brew Times of 25 to 45 Minutes
Our unique hexagonal brew cells allow 2.5 gallons of water to flow through 6 pounds of grounds that have been pre-infused with 0.5 gallons of water. The patent pending dispersion plate at the top of the cell controls the water flow evenly over the grounds and yields an average of 1-2 gallons of concentrate at 6 to 12 Brix/5.1 to 10.2 TDS. Brew time and yields are dependent on your dilution ratio, origin, roast profile, and grind.
Superior Flavor & Longer Shelf-Life
The fast brew time and the controlled water flow through the grounds allows you to capture the prime attributes of your single origins and blends. This provides a superior taste. Being able to brew quickly also provides an extended shelf-life compared to slower brewing methods.
The Brewing Process Provides High Brix Concentrate at the Beginning of the Brew
20 to 30 Brix/17 to 25 TDS can be extracted at the start of the brew. Up to 1 quart of espresso strength concentrate that is perfect for iced drinks or affogatos.
The Concentrate is Clear with Low Turbidity
Due to the fact, our system has no agitation of the grounds during the brew there is no need for secondary filtration. Our patent-pending, reusable, stainless-steel filter allows for ease of use and filters out the grounds. This eliminates costly throwaway filters.
Brew Cells are Easy to Handle and Clean
A loaded cell weighs less than 20 pounds so it’s easy for a Barista to handle. Cells can be rinsed between brews and sanitized daily. TORR offers automated CIP and cleaning on the H700 Brewers to minimize labor.
The HIVE BREW™ System is Easily Expandable
The H100 is a manual single (1) brew cell unit and requires no power or air supply. It’s easy to set up and uses gravity to control the water flow over the grounds. One operator can produce between 80-120 gallons of RTD in a shift. This is dependent on your dilution of the concentrate. Perfect for coffee shops or small-scale production. The H700 uses the same brew cells as the H100 and is an automatic seven (7) cell module that can be expanded. It’s a semi-automated production brewer. The 7 cells produce up to 700 gallons of RTD per shift depending on dilution.
It’s All About the Taste and Brew Quality
If you are interested in our system TORR offers to brew your beans in our pilot plant in Redding, CA. We will record on video the grind, yield, and brew times with your coffee beans. You send us your coffee beans, and we will send back your cold brew on ice to cup. The only charge is for the overnight return freight and packing.
