Water Filter Services has won the 2018 Judge’s Choice Product Innovation Award at the Melbourne International Coffee Expo (MICE).
The Product Innovation Awards are a celebration of the industry’s most advanced products which largely contribute to the growth and quality of Australia’s coffee production and consumption.
Water Filter Services won the award for the BWT BestAqua 1C and BestCoffee 100 Premium, one of the most advanced reverse osmosis and remineralisation system available. The under-counter units have easily changeable cartridge filters and the system can be monitored via Bluetooth, to ensure water quality is always at its best.
This system offers maximum equipment protection for expensive coffee machines, and provides remineralisation with magnesium-enriched water to maximise coffee and tea potential.
Detpak took out second place in the Judge’s Choice category, as well as the People’s Choice Award for its Precision Series Specialty Coffee cups.
Currently, takeaway coffee cups hold significantly larger volumes than in-café cups, meaning the ratio of coffee to milk varies. A collection of new takeaway coffee cups in four accurate volumetric sizes by Detpak are designed to replicate the volumes of in-café cups to ensure a consistent coffee taste experience.
Brew Bomb Cold Brew Equipment came in third place for its commercial cold brewer,developed to facilitate the demand for large-scale quantities of specialty cold brew coffee.
“The awards recognise outstanding innovation in the world of coffee, and the best part is that we had great representation of Australian inventions – another example of how Australians are pushing the boundaries of creativity for the world to admire – and catch,” says MICE Show Director Simon Coburn.
