Liquid Coffee Extracts

100% Arabica beans and filtered artesian well-water, means the Autocrat Coffee “On Demand” system is ideal for food service providers and other locations that do not want the inconvenience of traditional brewers.

Endless Cups of Coffee: You can have virtually endless cups of fresh and delicious coffee using our simple, clean, and efficient brewing process. Serving time is immediate, there is not delay.

Easy: There are no small bags to open, or brew baskets to mess with, there are not even the messy grounds to dispose of into the trash. No frozen cases of  product to store, defrost or monitor. Our shelf-stable bag-in-box installs easily into dispensing equipment.

Excellence: Autocrat uses fresh roasted 100% Arabica beans and filtered Artesian well-water. The distillation of the coffee essence even goes through a centrifugal process to take small particles out of the coffee essence for a cleaner coffee and it keeps the brew systems from clogging.

Autocrat Coffee on Demand is made with state-of-the art extractor and provides the richest, most reliable flavor. Choose Autocrat Premium, a medium roast coffee; or the Bold Roast, which is a slightly darker roast with a deep, rich flavor; or the Sumatra Blend an exotic blend with full body and dark roast flavor. More than a century of coffee expertise goes into every cup.

Eliminate waste:  Since each cup is prepared when needed there is no coffee to go stale, or be thrown away at the end of the day. There is also no shrinkage due to theft because there is no convenient way to prepare it or remove it from your facility.

Consistent: Every cup is the same as the last.

Benefits compared to other "Coffee on Demand" systems

  • Convenience/quality - Autocrat is held at room temperature, no more frozen boxes to store, or defrost. Frozen product not thawed in time, means no coffee when you need it. Or, if not thawed all the way, it is inconsistent, first too strong then too weak, and it may lead to throwing product away which is expensive.
  • Healthier by design - Now you don’t need to be concerned if the product was stored at the right temperature by the distributor, or at your facility. Plus the other systems require heat and refrigeration in the same brewer cabinet, and that is conducive to mold, bacteria and pest problems.
  • Environmentally better - Frozen & refrigerated products require extra equipment and extra energy. Autocrat means less packaging than the traditional coffee supplies which use small bags and boxes. The manufacture even takes the residual coffees from the original process and converts it to a fuel source.
  • Cleaner - Frozen bags of the other “Coffee On Demand” systems can crack open if they are dropped in shipping. Then these same damaged bags create a horrible mess when the product defrosts in your refrigerator.
  • Greater Capacity - Other systems use smaller hot water tanks (2 1/2 gallons vs. 4 ½.) There is no reason to ever run out of coffee when you need it. Our system allows you to choose power sources. A standard outlet (110V) for standard demand, or 220V for high capacity.

Environmental Benefit

Coffee on Demand conveniently provides superb quality coffee while creating far less waste than traditional coffee, or coffee by the cup brewers. This saves you time and money and helps your company become more environmentally conscious.
