While single-serve coffee systems continue to gain popularity, there have always been drawbacks: weak coffee, the ability to brew only a small cup at a time, and most notably, flawed coffee capsule designs and water heating systems. Touch Coffee & Beverages is re-inventing the single-serve coffee platform with the release of its ground-breaking Touch® T414S brewer and re-engineered capsules. The easy-to-use system brews superior-tasting, coffee shop-quality coffee in significantly less time than current machines.
According to the National Coffee Association USA, the brewing water temperature for a good cup of coffee is “between 195-205 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal extraction.” The Touch® T414S brewer can reach this ideal temperature by using its flash heating system and starts brewing in under 20 seconds after being off all night.
Touch’s superior coffee quality is also due to the fact that the hot water has more contact with the coffee grounds, which ensures that all of the coffee flavor is extracted. Other machines take much longer to warm up and then shoot water through the coffee grounds too quickly, so you end up throwing away untapped flavor with the used capsule. Even with a slower, more deliberate brew, when factoring in the warm-up time, the Touch® 414S still turns out a cup of joe in a fraction of the time.
Compared to most K-Cups®, which only fit up to 12.5 grams of coffee, Touch XBOLD CUPS™ pack up to 15 grams of coffee and Touch XLARGE CUPS™ provide up to 18 grams of coffee or 25 grams of hot chocolate. Touch brewers are open platform, meaning they are also fully compatible with existing Keurig K-Cups® and generic cups in addition to their XBOLD CUPS™ and XLARGE CUPS™. Conversely, each and every Touch cup works in first generation Keurig brewers.
You can now brew larger cups of coffee without sacrificing flavor. Customize your coffee experience by choosing from five cup sizes (6, 8, 10, 12 or 14 ounces) and three brew strengths (mild, medium or bold). Plus, the Touch brewer’s removable 90-ounce water tank has a greater capacity and is shorter in height than its counterparts, meaning you will be refilling less often, and it will be less awkward when you do.
“We have incorporated our innovative technology to our single-serve system—and the single-serve cups that accompany it—with one goal in mind: the perfect cup, every time,” says CEO Sam Kim. “Not only did we succeed at designing a machine that produces coffeehouse-quality coffee, but we have also made it convenient, intuitive, quiet and quick with a high-end design.”
The Touch® T414S brewer will launch at the upcoming International Home + Housewares Show (IHHS) at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL from March 7-10, 2015.
