The HIVE BREW™ Systems
Innovative Leader in Cold Brewing for Coffee & Teas

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.

The HIVE BREW™ 700
can be expanded with up to 7 additional inline units increasing the brew cell count to 56, all controled by a single PCI unit.

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 HIVE BREW™ System

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%).

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.

What to Expect

  • Provides up to 30% higher yields than typical immersion brewers with extractions of 20%-23% of available solubles – as much as 30% more compared to immersion brewing that is typically 13% to 15% extractions.
  • Average 25–30-minute brew time per cell and max 5 minutes to clean and prep each cell for the next brew cycle.
  • Reusable and food grade metal filters eliminate disposable filter costs as well as post-brew filtering.
  • 7 to 56 cell units are automated systems once cells are loaded.
  • 1 and 4 cell hives are manual systems and use gravity flow. No power, no pumps, no hoses–perfect for small roasters and on-premise brewing.
  • Coming Soon. Fully automatic customized system including auto pre wetting, cell loading, and unloading on 56 cell units.
  • TORR offers free testing of your beans to prove extraction and taste.

Manual Hive Cold Brew Coffee System

The HIVE BREW™ 100 Manual System

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%.
