Post Commercial Coffee Makers
Commercial Coffee Makers
by: Joyce Kaaland

When looking at the number of different types of commercial coffee makers, you begin to understand it is a big industry. All the different types below are for specific needs that may be in vary different places.

The single cup pod brewers can be found in hotel and motel rooms. They are also used in offices and restaurants, especially if a customer wants a unique coffee. This eliminates making a pot full of coffee that most likely will not be fully used. Pods are pre-made small containers of fresh coffee grounds. When the pods are put into the brewer the operator can select the brew control to mild, medium or strong to make one cup. Each pod has the specifications of what kind of coffee, regular, decaf, etcetera, and whether is plain or flavored. The coffee beans after use remain in the pod for easy discard.

Another place for a commercial pod maker may be in the home where someone only wants a great tasting specialty coffee once in a while without any mess.

Pour-over coffee brewers are the most common type of coffee maker whether for commercial purposes or at home. Pour-overs, as they are commonly called, make a good cup of coffee when you make sure you are using a good filter. These coffee makers are used in restaurants, cafeterias in public buildings and college campuses. Many industries now offer coffee stations that have two or more glass decanters on a warming plate that is part of the brew station. The pour-over brewers may require water poured into a holding tank or may have a water line attached. Wherever they are used they are usually for a set amount of people in that location. Another great advantage to this type of brewer is the use of airpots. These accessories can keep coffee hot for long periods of time without the use heat. Some airpots only loose a degree or two of heat per hour.

Satellite coffee brewers can brew up to 400 cups of coffee per hour. These satellite brewers are meant to facilitate the movement of a large amount of coffee to different stations like a convention center where many meetings in different rooms are being held. The shuttles for this type of brewer hold one and half gallons and keep the coffee hot for an extended amount of time.

Like the satellite brewers, the shuttle brewers brew coffee right into a shuttle or 3 liter airpot. The shuttles hold about a gallon and a half and are vacuum insulated to keep the coffee hot for an extended amount of time. Shuttle brewers are also equipped to brew high volume amounts of coffee on an hourly basis as needed as in places like a restaurant or a coffee house.

Grind’n Brew Coffee Systems are unique in that they combine a precision coffee grinder and a brewer. This machine brews coffee into a decanter or airpot. These machines have dual been hoppers as well so two different kinds of coffee can be made from the same machine. These coffee systems are great wherever a truly freshly ground and brewed cup of coffee is to be served. Specialty coffee houses and fine restaurants are excellent places for this machine.

With today’s technology and precision brewing, coffee can be made to exact specifications with a touch of a button or turn of a dial. They can also be programmed to do whatever the operator needs done for there particular use. Talking about coffee, I think it’s time for a break.
