The emergence of brew-by-the-cup coffee has taken our industry by storm. You can’t help but see single cup coffee brewing at many cafes that used to only offer a drip-brew option. We believe that the increased understanding and popularity of Specialty grade coffee has helped push and promote this new style of coffee preparation and we think this will be a staple in most cafes that want to offer many single origin options without having to brew a full airpot every time someone orders a certain coffee.
That being said, we believe that drip coffee is a staple that will always need to exist along side the new style of BBTC. Cafes will always have customers that want their coffee to take no longer than a few pumps from the airpot to their to-go cup and then they want to be on their way out the door.
Here is a great article/blogpost by Jack Groot on the subject – BBTC – fad or trend?
If BBTC coffee brewing is something that you want to add to your cafe there are many options to choose from. We stock and recommend the following options:
- Flamenco Stand, 4-cup Manual Pour-Over Coffee Brewing Station – this device is a great way to provide pour-over single-cup coffee brewing without spending a ton of money on fancy equipment. Just think, you can brew four different cups of single origin coffee at the same time!
- Bunn Trifecta – this machine really is amazing! With trifecta, the barista creates an experience which unlocks the nuances of your coffee. Using an air infusion single cup process, trifecta brews so that each coffee’s unique voice resonates.
- Clever Single Cup Coffee Dripper – these have advanced the concept of Full Immersion Coffee Brewing by creating an easy way to brew without bitterness, acidity or loose grounds. The difference is it’s new shut-off valve system. Instead of pushing the grounds to the bottom of the brew carafe, the grounds settle naturally.
- Melitta Single Cup Brewer – this small device is portable and fits over any size mug or travel cup. The Melitta is wonderful because it gives you access to the important factors like water temperature, grind setting, even water distribution, and amount.
