Cold Brew Coffee System

Innovative Leader in Cold Brewing for Coffee & Teas

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.

HiveBrew cold coffee brewing  for todays modern coffee cafe

Retail Countertop Cold Coffee Brewing

The HIVE CAFÉ® is designed for coffee shops and small chains. The fast gravity cold drip brewing process provides high brix, expresso strength concentrated coffee that is perfect for iced drinks and affogatos. It can then be cut for RTD cold brews or for hot coffee.

One gallon of water and 2 pounds of coffee make 0.6 gallons of typical 10 brix concentrate. The concentrate can be cut with water to 3 gallons of 2 brix ready to drink cold brew.

Brew times are super-fast at 15 to 20 minutes. The fast brew time retains the unique flavors of your blends. After a quick rinse you can be back into the next brew in a maximum of 30 minutes.

The HIVE CAFÉ® uses the same extraction method as our larger multicell production brewers that produce up to 4000 gallons of RTD per shift.

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 coffee.

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

& 200 Semi Auto Systems

The HIVE BREW™ 100 is a single cell, startup production system for cold brewing coffee concentrate. It cold brews a 6-pound batch in 25 to 35 minutes.

The brew is close to “cold expresso” strength concentrate at an average of 10 Brix (8.7 TDS). Higher concentrations can be tapped off early in the brew. The 2 gallons of 10 Brix concentrate can be cut with water to provide 10 gallons of RTD coffee at 2 Brix. The manual 100 brew system requires no power or compressed air. Typical output is 8 to 10 single cell brews per shift.

The HIVE BREW™ 200 is an automatic single cell, production system for cold brewing coffee concentrate. It cold brews a 6-pound batch in 25 to 35 minutes. It has an automatic water supply system and extra brew cells to increase throughput.

The brew is close to “cold expresso” strength concentrate at an average of 10 Brix (8.7 TDS). Higher concentrations can be tapped off early in the brew. The 2 gallons of 10 Brix concentrate can be cut with water to provide 10 gallons of RTD coffee at 2 Brix. The automatic 200 brew system requires 110v single phase power and a pressure water supply. Typical output is 14 to 16 single cell brews per shift.

Introducing The HIVE FUSION™
Automatic Pre-Infusion

The FUSION™ is the next step toward fully automating the HIVE Brewing system. It pre-infuses ground beans with water and accurately weighs and loads the brew cells prior to them being placed into the HIVE brewer.

Ground beans are transferred to the infeed hopper on the FUSION™. Linear transfer pans under the hopper transfer the grounds to a weigh scale that loads a paddle mixer. Water sprays are mounted over the mixer and infuse a precise amount of water with the ground beans.

The mixer has a trap door bottom to dump the beans into the cell that is automatically indexed under the loading chute. Output is up to 60 - 6-pound cells per hour.

The HIVE BREW™ Advantages
What sets our Cold Brewing Coffee Systems apart?

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.
