The Differences Between Manually Brewed Tea and Teapresso Machines

Brewing tea cares about temperature, time, water volume, tea leaves and tea to water ratio. Traditional tea shops brewed tea manually in the early times which is hard to control the temperature and time precisely, and cause the quality of tea unstable. Nowadays, thanks to the technology, with the appearance of commercial tea equipment like tea brewing machine, fresh brew tea machine, tea cooker, Teapresso machine, or else, it has gradually brought a new revolution for tea equipment.

With Klub Teapresso equipment, the temperature, time, water volume and the ratio of tea leaves can be controlled precisely which stabilize the taste of each brewing tea while it is the key for the tea shops to maintain their quality. Meanwhile, Teapresso machines save human resources and cost which is definitely the inevitable equipment for modern tea shops!

How to Choose an Appropriate Brewing Equipment?

Tea brewing machine? Tea maker? Fresh brew tea machine? Teapresso machine? Tea cooker? All these names are so confusing while it is actually quite easy to choose an appropriate tea equipment as long as understanding the principles of brewing tea. Black tea must be steamed-brewed with high temperature to bring out its aroma while for green tea, high temperature will cause over astringency which tastes not good. Therefore, a good tea machine must be able to offer the best temperature and time according to the type of tea.

Klub B6-Smart Bulk Brewing System Machine use PID controller (Proportional–Integral–Derivative Controller) to offer the perfect and precise temperature for tea leaves and the steam tea blending function with high temperature can easily maintain the brewing temperature. Besides, thanks to the double boiler design, there is no need to wait for temperature change during the replacement different materials, the machine can extract the full aroma and aftertaste with great amount right away to offer stable tea quality.

What Makes Tea Taste Different?

With the same tea leaves, why each taste after brewing from everyone is different? Temperature and time control are the key factors. Manual operation must count the time and measure the temperature to brew tea with quality conformance. As to teashops asking for stable tea quality, a professional tea equipment is a must. Klub B6-Smart Brewing system machine can accurately control the temperature and water volume to brew tea with stable quality and conformance.

Do KLub Machines Have International Certificates?

As the first Teapresso manufacturer in the world, to offer excellent service and meet worldwide suppliers’ needs, KLub actively develops the certificates for fresh tea machines, tea brewing machines and coffee machines that can be used all over the world like ETL, NSF, CE, KC, CCC, etc., not to mention other certificates like voltage safety, pressure vessel, ISO9001, etc.

Why Coffee Machines Are Not Recommended to Brew Tea?

There are huge differences in temperature, time and water volume between brewing coffee and brewing tea. The temperature for coffee is fixed while the temperature for tea actually depends on tea fermentation. The time for brewing coffee is short while tea needs much time to steep and steam out its taste. Consequently, brewing tea with coffee machine cannot bring out its own taste.

Klub use traditional tea brewing principles, “Wash, Steep, Steam, Cook, Extract” to develop the genuine Fresh Tea Machine (Tea-Brewing Machine, Tea Cooker, Teapresso Machine). Either Teapresso Machine or Bulk Brewing Machine are the best recommendation for tea equipment because these all meet tea brewing principles which can control time, water volume and temperature accurately to brew the perfect tea.

What Are the Differences Between KLub’s Tea Machines and Those of Others?

Either Klub’s Teapresso Machines or Bulk Brewing Machine can control temperature, time and water volume precisely to meet the best conditions for brewing tea. Their advantages can help chain stores standardize internally and differentiate externally, reduce human resources, control materials accurately, reduce the cost during the period of peak season and offseason, raise average unit price avenue, increase franchises profits, speed up new products development, accelerate store-opening and efficiency, and enhance store image.

Basic Maintenance on Our Machines

1、Tea portafilter:
loose the base with the wrench, disassemble filter support and internal parts, then soak the disassembled portafilter into dedicated cleaning liquid for about 15 minutes. Before usage, rinse all the accessories again with water but without scouring pad and wipe them clean with a rag.
(Do not soak the plastic part of portafilter into the cleaning liquid lest the surface be dissolved.)

2、Coffee portafilter:
disassemble filter support and internal parts, then soak the disassembled portafilter into dedicated cleaning liquid for about 15 minutes. Before usage, rinse all the accessories again with water but without scouring pad and wipe them clean with a rag.
(Do not soak the plastic part of portafilter into the cleaning liquid lest the surface be dissolved.)

3、Group head:
put the silica gel washer and cleaning powder to the portafilter, and embed the portafilter to the group head. Press the cleaning buttons of the machine and the machine will automatically clean the rest coffee grounds and coffee crema inside the group heads and filters thoroughly.

The Effect of Limescale

The calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, calcium sulfate and other minerals content high in the water is hard water which might cause precipitation or floating fouling after using for a long time. For coffee and Teapresso machines, these might cause limescale in the boiler and tubes which will not only affect the taste of your beverage but also clog the tubes. When water cannot flow through the machine smoothly, vapor quality weakens or heating becomes slow, make sure to clean the limescale immediately.

Why Use a Pressurized Water Bucket?

We all know that water quality, temperature and pressure etc will affect the taste and the quality of tea and coffee. If using the pressurized water bucket, water flow will be consistent and stable which will not cause unstable water pressure due to business increase, and then lead to water output and temperature anomaly or else. These might not only affect the taste and quality but also waste customers’ time.

How to Choose an Espresso Machine? What Are the Differences Between a Fully-Automatic Machine and a Semi-Automatic Machine?

Fully automatic espresso machines are suitable for small breakfast diners, beverage shops, lounges, reception, household use, etc. Considering to operational convenience, personnel change and space constraints, a fully automatic machine is preferred. Semi-automatic espresso machines are suitable for coffee shops, as it needs a professional barista to operate the machine properly. Each barista makes different coffee while the taste will be more meticulous and distinctive. High-end restaurants and coffee shops are recommended.

How to Choose a Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine?

The coffee machine itself is only responsible for extracting espresso, the rest are all up to barista including milk frothing and other add-ons. There are many brands out there while the benefits of choosing products made in Taiwan includes good after service, demonstration, maintenance, taste correction, etc. Meanwhile, it would be easier to reflect, communicate, adjust and offer ideas when any issue happens.

The Key Factors for Choosing a Semi-Automatic Espresso Machine

1、Boiler:
The brass boiler has better extensibility and faster heat conductivity while stainless steel boiler is durable, uneasy to be corroded and cheaper.

2、Group Head:
Each group head has its individual boiler which can set the group head temperature on your own based on coffee beans characteristics and recipes of the drinks.

3、PID System:
PID System is a necessary function for semi-automatic espresso machines for accurately control the temperature and pressure system of the machine. The PID system will detect and show the temperature inside the machine which can be adjusted automatically by the controller or manually. It can keep temperature stable and the brewing coffee will be consistent as well.

4、Others:
The pressure and temperature will both affect the quality of coffee. Other things affect as well like the number of steam sprayers. The more steam sprayers there are, the better milk frothing will be. Additionally, the cup size of the portafilter matters while the standard size should be 58mm.

How to Choose a Suitable Coffee Machine?

You can go for a machine regarding to your preferences. For household use, you can pick a fully automatic espresso machine. Its disadvantages are both water tanks and bean hoppers in smaller sizes which is not suitable for many people to use at a time while its advantages are easy to use and meeting the needs efficiently. Except for home use, offices, commercial purposes like restaurants, coffee shops, are all recommended with the semi-automatic machine. It is a good option for consideration between long term economic benefit and quality.
