Marco will be launching a brand new coffee brewer at Catex in February so we thought it might be a good idea to do a blog on it… Having already established our Filtro pour and serve brewer as one of the best-selling small batch brewers on the European market we decided that it was time for an evolution. THE MARCO BRU The Bru, which will be launched at Ireland’s premier catering show, Catex, in February 2013, will initially be available in two different models, the 1.8 litre jug model and the 2.2 litre insulated flask version. Both are manual fill models, with plumbed options also being available. The R&D team have worked to develop this new machine to not merely look good, but to produce a standard of coffee quality unrivalled from this type of machine. At the heart of the Bru is an all-new patent pending brewing system and sprayhead configuration. It incorporates a newly developed ‘flash’ boiler for superb water flow with improved water temperature stability. This is achieved using an uncomplicated electrical configuration, giving improved service access. Our engineers have completely redesigned the sprayhead achieving an improved spray pattern leading, in turn, to a more satisfactory extraction of solids from the coffee. All Bru models fully meet the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe’s (SCAE) Gold Cup standard for best practice in brewing. Highly functional though it is, our design team has not forgotten the aesthetics, either. The new machine boasts sleek, curved lines and a brushed stainless steel finish. Our development engineers have considered user needs, service requirements and SCAE’s Gold Cup principles in the development of the Bru range to achieve the perfect cup of coffee. We are delighted with the results and are ready to shout about it starting at Catex from the 19th to the 21st of February. If you’d like to come see it drop us an e-mail at the usual address and we’ll organise a free invite for you.
