This test method covers the evaluation of the energy consumption, brewing, and holding performance of commercial coffee brewing machines (here after referred to as coffee brewers) used in commercial and institutional facilities. The operator can use this evaluation to select a coffee brewer and characterize its energy use and performance. This test method does not cover residential coffee brewers, "urn" coffee brewers (Type III), or espresso machines.
This test method applies to single cup (Type I) and batch (Type II) coffee brewers. The coffee brewer will be tested for the following (where applicable):
Maximum energy input rate,
Heavy use brewing energy consumption,
"Ready-to-Brew" (Standby/Idle) energy rate, and
"Energy Save Mode" (Low power) energy rate.
