Anyone who has appreciated the quick and easy handling of CAFEA bottles from Cafeahaus AG need not to worry that liquid coffee is no longer produced. Instead, one can now look forward to a product from the 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 concentrates are unfrozen, which gives them a handling advantage over the frozen CAFEA coffee.
The coffee extracts are manufactured and processed in a specialist manufacturing plant in Germany. For liquid coffee extracts, raw coffee is purchased according to strict quality standards from the best growing regions in the world. The green coffee beans are cleaned and gently roasted to perfection. The manufacturing process adheres to all the strict German Coffee Ordinances. The concentrated extract contains a minimum of 27.5% coffee solids and is aseptically filled in BiB packs (Bag in Box). These are available in different types. The coffee is produced by mixing high quality liquid coffee concentrates with water in the correct proportion to ensure a consistently good quality 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. Depending on the dosage, a 2 litres BiB produces about 52 up to 72 litres of coffee.
The liquid coffee extracts are devised for use in the coffee machines from Kaffee-Konzepte but can also be used without a dispenser. For this purpose, a BiB must be provided with a spout or tap. Depending on the dosage, the appropriate amount of concentrate is filled, mixed with hot water and filled into thermos flasks, Cold Brew Coffee accordingly with cold water.
