Efficiency is everything in the foodservice industry, especially for coffee shops. The Hardtank nitro cold brew machine creates cold brew coffee or tea in an hour, as compared with the typical 12-24-hour brewing process, Justyna Suder, a representative for Hardtank said.
How does it work? According to Suder, the secret to the product – which launched in 2019 — is constant water recirculation and a metal holding basket for the coffee or tea, allowing you to extract the liquid quickly. The company has also launched Baby Hard tank (a smaller version of the product) in 2021, which they’re mainly marketing toward small café chains.
“You can create your own very unique drink each time, everything depends what you're going to put inside of the [machine] and how you're going to work on your recipe, including brewing time, for example,” Suder said. “[…] You can brew different coffee each time and receive a completely unique product each time.”
