TORR's new cold brew extraction process utilizes a hexagonal, micro-batch brew-cell concept to optimize taste quality, extraction yields and brew time while minimizing space. The "Hive cells" are design to fit tightly together and can be combined in greater numbers to fit production needs.
*4 In-line configuration shown. One controller can operate up to 8 Hive Brew Systems, seamlessly increasing production up to 56 Brew-cells.
We've upgraded our proven Twin & Quad Brew systems by replacing the 50-pound trays with our new, multiple "hive cell" technology. This makes for a more consistant product, is a far more efficient and easier to manage overall.
Up to 8 hives containing 7 cells are mounted on individual support frames and linked together with operator control from one control panel.
56 cells (8 Hive Brew 700 modules) produce 5,000 gallons (+/- 20%) of RTD with two people per 8-hour shift. Prewet and cleanup requires extra labor.
The unique feature of the hive cell is that the quality and extraction performance of one brew cell can be replicated consistently by adding additional cells that provide identical quality and extraction as you increase your production output.
Pre wetting the coffee grounds with a precise amount of water and setting the rate of 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.
HIVE BREW™ systems are available with up to 56 cells. Higher outputs (past 56 cells) 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%).
This single brew cell produces 8 to 10 gallons of RTD at 2.0 Brix per brew from 6 pounds of coffee. Brew time is 25 to 30 minutes plus 5 minutes to change over, empty and recharge the cell.
Typical performance for an 8-hour shift with one cell, assuming one hour prep time and one hour clean up and 6 hours production is 10 brews. The 10 brews typically provide 100 gallons of RTD at 2.0 brix with one person per 8-hour shift. +/- 20%.
