Protect Edition Gourmet for fully-automatic coffee machines convinces both the jury of experts and consumers
The new BWT tank cartridge for Jura fully-automatic coffee machines has won the Kitchen Innovation Award 2014. The product convinced the jury in terms of both functionality and innovation: it is the first and only tank cartridge to enrich the water for coffee, espresso and cappuccino with the mineral magnesium and thus guarantee a perfectly creamy gourmet taste. An internationally recognized mark of quality, the Award will be presented by the LifeCare Initiative at the Ambiente show in Frankfurt on 8 February 2014.
Full coffee aroma and a long machine life
The Protect Edition Gourmet was assessed by a jury of experts in a two-stage procedure and subsequently given the ranking "excellent" by consumers. All three of the different tank cartridges for Jura fully-automatic coffee machines proved convincing: substances impairing the smell and taste of coffee are removed from the water, which is simultaneously enriched with valuable magnesium using the patented Mg2+ technology. In addition, the tank cartridge effectively prevents scale deposits forming, optimally protecting the machine. Coffee expert and master barista Nana Holthaus-Vehse also confirmed that "the process and the mineralized water allow the roughly 800 aromas in a first-class coffee bean to optimally unfold their full taste".
Stefan Scheurer, managing director of BWT water+more GmbH, was delighted to receive this mark of quality: "The Kitchen Innovation Award is a very valuable distinction for us. What pleases us particularly is that we were able to convince both consumers and the jury of the advantages in using Gourmet Protect Edition."
