ENERGY STAR HIGH EFFICIENCY HAUTE EFFICACITÉ

An ENERGY STAR certified commercial coffee brewer uses 35% less energy, on average, than a standard model. Individually, coffee brewers use relatively little energy but collectively the energy savings can be significant. Saving energy saves money and reduces your carbon footprint.

Commercial coffee brewers are available in many different types, configurations and sizes. Depending on the establishment, usage patterns can also vary greatly. In general, there are three main types of brewers: single-cup, batch and urn/satellite brewers. The new ENERGY STAR technical specification focuses on batch brewers, but the program expects to expand the scope of the specification to include other types, e.g., espresso machines and urn brewers, once information about their energy use becomes available.

Currently, a batch-type model that has earned the ENERGY STAR designation can save about $100 per year when compared to conventional models.

Key features

  • Energy Save Mode: An optional low power mode that is designed by the manufacturer to be different from and use less energy than the appliance’s ready-to-brew state.

Helpful tips

  • Commercial coffee brewers vary in design and capacity. Make sure you take the time to do your research on the type that best meets your needs.
  • Look for brewers that include features like an “energy save” mode or that automatically power down when idle or not in use.
  • Read owners’ manuals and operating guidelines to ensure you are benefitting from energy-saving features of your commercial kitchen products.
  • Use timers to ensure that coffee maker heating elements are not operating during off-hours.
