Instant Coffee Process - Standard Operation
The quality of instant coffee is primarily defined by the quality and blend of the green coffee beans, and the roasting process.
For instant coffee, however, every subsequent manufacturing step is likely to impact on the quality in a negative sense. For this reason, it is extremely important that an instant coffee line is well designed in terms of quality and flexibility.
The quality of the downstream equipment defines in the end, the quality of your cup of coffee. For this purpose, TEC Square can suggest quality solutions for each and every process step.
TEC Square is a specialist in instant coffee manufacturing. We employ engineers and operational managers with extensive operational experience. Our team of dedicated engineers has worked with the top manufacturers in the world. They have also worked at the limits of design possibilities in terms of quality, capacity, and flexibility. Our team has supplied solutions for effective optimization plants as well.
Instant Coffee Process - Plant design
TEC Square designs instant coffee plants with the operation and maintenance of our customers in mind. All of our key engineers have spent multiple years in manufacturing facilities. As such, we understand the importance of ergonomic design and optimized work-flows.
Also, we design our installations with flexibility in mind. This means that, with our solution, it is possible to invest in a simple solution at first, and to keep the option open to upgrade to a better solution at a later stage. Altogether, in our design we allow for the possibility to
The quality of the extraction process will determine the initial Instant Coffee quality. However, in order to achieve the same quality in the end-product, the downstream process should be capable of maintaining such quality as well. Therefore, we design our aroma recovery, evaporation, and drying systems in such a way that we preserve the right taste and aroma-profile for your marketing campaign. Below, we detail our standard line, but also give several options to improve on quality and/or operation.
Instant Coffee Process - TEC Square Competitive Offering
TEC Square designs its instant coffee plants from our client’s perspective. For instance a plant designed for high quality Arabica production has a different look and feel as a plant designed for mainly Robusta. However we allow for upgrading over time. For instance you can install a more simple solution in the beginning, leaving space for a more elaborate design at a later stage.
Flexible Design of Instant Coffee Plants
TEC Square designs its own high-end instant coffee extraction plants. We combine flexibility, quality, and operational effectiveness into one package. Our high-end technology is based on a combination of the following principles:
- Easy raw material handling
- Short cycle times
- Low energy usage
- Flexible capacity
Our design normally allows for top quality instant coffee products. However, we design our installations sometimes as a cost -effective solution, keeping future expansion in quality and capacity as an option. High yield extraction designs are equally possible.
A lower investment line is based on the following principles:
- The size and number of cells determines the yearly output. A smaller cell size will reduce the overall output in kg/h
- The number of cells determine initial investment. A smaller number of cells will mean less investment
- Also, the number of cells determine the quality. We define the initial and final objectives right from the start. A simple technology is often sufficient to start a simple business model.
