scope:

1.1 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.

1.2.1 Maximum energy input rate,

1.2.2 Heavy use brewing energy consumption,

1.2.3 Production capacity,

1.2.4 "Ready-to-Brew" (Standby/Idle) energy rate, and

1.2.5 "Energy Save Mode" (Low power) energy rate.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
