June 18, 2018
Coffee and TeaAfter water, tea and coffee are the most consumed beverages around the world. Tea leaves and coffee beans are processed into stand-alone beverages, and they are also used to make extracts, flavors, and other ingredients for the bakery, processed food and beverage, and culinary industries. You’ll find black tea ingredients used in sauces and confections, green tea ingredients in smoothies and sweet baked goods, and coffee ingredients in seasoning blends and beer. Exhibiting companies in this category will show other innovative applications where coffee and tea add layers of flavor.

THE COFFEE BREWMASTERS uses a proprietary extraction technology
to manufacture all-natural coffee and tea extracts used in ready-to-drink beverages, foodservice products, and newly developed applications that require an economical cost-in-use ingredient.

The extraction methods retain the full flavor profile of coffee and tea in highly concentrated liquid form. Unlike long steep batch methods and denaturing forms of extraction, the company has developed a natural process that produces a clean label and shelf-stable ingredient without the use of additives.

“Customers appreciate our ability to maintain the same authentic flavor profiles associated with their brand, whether served as a popular cold brew or hot beverage,” says Sean Baumgartner, managing partner. “Our expertise is extracting those distinct, naturally occurring flavors and providing ease of use, whether for the operator at store level or large-scale bulk industrial formulation.”

From single origins to tailor-made blends, The Coffee Brewmasters has a range of coffee and tea extracts that provides a versatile platform to build customized food and beverage products.
