The HIVE BREW™ Cold Brew Coffee System
The Next Step in the Evolution of Commercial Cold Brew Coffee Brewers

TORR's new cold brewer uses an extraction process that utilizes a hexagonal, micro-batch brew-cell concept to optimize taste quality, extraction yields and brew time without taking up as much space as other cold coffee brewing systems. The "HIVE cells" are designed to fit tightly together and can be combined to fit production needs. Whether you are an independent coffee shop or a commercial cold brew coffee company, HIVE BREW™ is the best cold brew system on the market because it is high-yield, affordable and scalable. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you grow your cold brew coffee operation.

Expandable Cold Brew Coffee Systems

*4 In-line configuration shown. One controller can operate up to 8 HIVE BREW™ Systems, seamlessly increasing production up to 56 Brew-cells.

The HIVE BREW™ 700

We've upgraded our proven Twin & Quad Brew systems by replacing the 50-pound trays with our new, multiple "HIVE cell" technology. These modifications have allowed us to develop the best cold brew system available.

Up to 8 hives containing 7 cells are mounted on individual support frames and linked together with operator control from one control panel.

For large batch production requirements, 56 cells (8 Hive Brew 700 modules) produce 5,000 gallons (+/- 20%) of RTD with two people per 8-hour shift. Pre-wet and cleanup of the equipment requires extra labor.

The HIVE BREW™ System is an Innovative Cold Brew Machine

The unique feature of the hive cell is that the quality and extraction performance of one brew cell can be replicated consistently. Simply adding additional cells provides identical quality and extraction as you increase your production output.

Pre-infusion of the coffee grounds with a precise amount of water and setting the rate of cold water flow through the dispersion plate to the coffee bed is critical to optimizing brew output. Our in-house coffee experts can advise the optimum extraction parameters for your cold brewing.

HIVE BREW™ systems are available with up to 56 cells. Higher outputs are available and custom built to suit your production needs.

Current HIVE BREW™ systems produce 100 to 5,000 gallons of RTD per 8-hour shift (+/– 20%).

Nature Works

The hexagonal shape of the cell is reminiscent of what you find in a honeycomb. A system of multiple, identical and centrally controlled cells increases the speed and overall quality of production, much like what you see inside a beehive.

The HIVE BREW™ System Advantages

What sets our Cold Brewing Coffee Systems apart?

Up to 40% Increase in Yield Compared to Immersion Brewing

This is achieved by using a patent-pending active extraction process that provides 18 to 21% extraction of the solubles in the beans. This compares to 13 to 15% extraction for typical passive immersion brewing systems.

Fast Brew Times of 25 to 40 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 2 gallons of concentrate at 6.8 to 10.2 TDS (8-12 Brix). This will yield between 8 to 10 gallons of RTD. Brew time and yields are dependent on the 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

Up to 22 TDS (25 Brix) can be extracted at the start of the brew. Up to 2 quarts 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 up to 120 gallons of RTD in a shift. 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 to 56 cells with one controller. It’s a semi-automated production brewer. The 7 cells produce up to 1200 gallons of RTD per shift.

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.

The HIVE BREW™ 100 Manual System

This single cell brewer produces 8 to 10 gallons of RTD at 2.0 Brix per brew from 6 pounds of coffee. Brew time is 25 to 40 minutes plus 5 minutes to change over, empty and recharge the cell.

The typical performance of the brew process for an 8-hour shift with one cell, assuming one hour prep time and one hour clean up and 6 hours production, yields 10 brews. The 10 brews typically provide 100 gallons of RTD classic cold brew at 2.0 brix with one person per 8-hour shift (+/- 20%).
