1.1 This test method covers the evaluation of the energy energy consumption and brewing performance of commercial coffee brewing machines (here after referred to as coffee brewers) are for brewing coffee in commercial and institutional food service establishments. The food service operator can use this evaluation to select a coffee brewer and understand its energy consumption and performance. 1.2 This test method applies to coffee brewers that include a thermostatically-controlled heater and water source and either a reservoir (Type I) or an electrically heated chamber (Type II) to make hot water available for continuous operation. 1.3 The coffee brewer will be tested for the following (where applicable): 1.3.1 Maximum power input, or maximum current draw, 1.3.2 Heavy-use energy consumption, 1.3.3 Production capacity, 1.3.4 Idle energy rate.
There is a need to develop an energy performance test to compare the energy consumption and performance of commercial coffee brewing equipment.
