Anyone who has appreciated the quick and easy handling of CAFEA bottles from Cafeahaus AG need not to worry that Cafea liquid coffee is no longer produced. Instead, one can look forward to a product from company DEK Hamburg (Deutsche Extrakt Kaffee GmbH). It produces liquid coffee extracts in Bag in Box packs (BiB).
These are about twice as concentrated as CAFEA coffee and therefore much more productive.
In addition, the AROMAT concentrates are also available unfrozen, which gives them a handling advantage over the frozen CAFEA coffee.
For liquid coffee extracts, the green coffee is already purchased according to strict quality standards. They are made exclusively from freshly ground roasted coffee. The liquid coffee concentrates are aseptically filled into 2 litres BiB so that the fresh aroma and high quality are retained. These are available in different varieties. The coffee is produced by mixing high-quality extracts with water in the correct ratio in order to ensure consistently good quality of black coffee.
Recommended mixing ratios: 1:25 up to 1:35, as a ratio of coffee extract to water, one part of coffee extract to 25 or up to 35 parts of water. So, a BiB from 2 litres produces about 52 up to 72 litres of coffee.
The liquid coffee extracts are devised for use in coffee machines from Kaffee-Konzepte. However, they are also suitable for "manual use" without a machine. For this purpose, a BiB must be provided with a spout. Depending on the dosage, the appropriate amount of concentrate is filled and mixed with hot water into thermophores or thermos flasks.
