What's New at TORR
Introducing the acquisition of Brew Bomb

Brew Bomb Coffee Cold Brew System

TORR and Brew Bomb are merging. Brew Bomb has been the go-to Cold Extraction solution for the Specialty Coffee Segment since 2017. They have similar patented technologies to TORR for brewing espresso level concentrates and have developed a leading edge IOT platform that scales shop level Cold Brewing with connected technology. Their capabilities are synergistic with TORR’s brewing engineering and manufacturing strengths.

Brew Bomb’s IOT technology platform and precision brewing process will be combined with HIVEBREW's controlled water flow and speed of brews to exceed the needs of the coffee cold drinks market in yield and taste.

TORR is also an industry leader in bag in box filling and packaging lines for both refrigerated, and aseptic shelf stable ERC coffee concentrates and RTD.

The HIVEBREW™ Cold Brewing explained! The Next Step in the Evolution of Commercial Cold Brew Coffee Brewers

There are two typical methods for extracting coffee in cold water. Traditional immersion and the Kyoto Drip. Immersion brewing is a passive process whereby coffee grounds are steeped in cold water over 12-24 hours. This method provides little in the way of control of the brew and the long duration brew time, with no refrigeration, is a potential food safety issue.

In contrast HIVE BREW™ brewing uses a modified controlled drip method that is an active process whereby cold water is passed through the grind bed at a controlled rate. This active brewing process we call ACE, Accelerated Cold Extraction. It controls and optimizes the extraction process and brews are typically done in under 30 minutes.

The other feature of HIVE BREW™ brewing is that the brew is typically 7.5 TDS concentrate (5 x RTD). We call it Espresso Replacement Concentrate or ERC. This concentrate can replace the espresso shot in Cold Mixed Coffee Beverages. HIVE BREW™ brewing delivers equal cup quality with more consistency, and significantly improved speed of service.

HIVE BREW™ brewing uses a brew cell to optimize taste quality, extraction yields and brew time. The 6 pound cells fit together and can be combined to suit your production needs.

The unique feature of the HIVE BREW™ 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.

HIVE BREW™ is the best cold brew system on the market because it is high-yield, high quality and fast at under 30 minutes per brew.

HIVE BREW™ systems produce 30 to 50,000 gallons of RTD per 8-hour shift (+/– 10%).

Dale Schotte at Park Avenue Coffee

“One of the biggest challenges of serving cold brew was the length of time it takes to prepare a batch. With the HIVE BREW™ system, the extraction time is reduced to 30 minutes, and you can prepare higher-quality and more consistent cold brew. We have found that Cold Brew has quickly become a staple in the specialty coffee market, and demand continues to increase every year. The HIVE BREW™ produces high-quality, more consistent cold brew while also using less coffee to prepare the same amount of ready-to-drink cold brew,”

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 bucket type 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 7.5 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 TDS Concentrate at the Beginning of the Brew

17 to 25 TDS can be extracted at the start of the brew. Up to 1 quart of ristretto 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 700 Brewers to minimize labor.

The HIVE BREW™ System is Easily Expandable

The HIVE BREW™ Café 2 & 6 are manual single (1) brew cell unit and requires no power or air supply. Easy to set up and uses gravity to control the water flow over the grounds. One operator can produce up to 140 gallons of RTD in a shift. This is dependent on your dilution of the concentrate. Perfect for coffee shops or small-scale production. The 700 uses the same brew cells as the 200 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 1,100 gallons of RTD per shift depending on dilution.
