Everpure Partners With Ultimate Barista Challenge
Company provides water filtration systems
Everpure, a foodservice industry supplier, partnered with the Ultimate Barista Challenge (UBC), to find the answer to the question of who makes the best coffee and how they make it. The contest, taking place in numerous cities in the U.S. and around the world, just concluded its Los Angeles-based events on Aug. 16, and utilizes Everpure-formulated water.
The UBC brought baristas together to compete in four categories: Espresso Frappe, Latte Art, Espresso Cocktail and Best of Brew Challenge. More than 10,000 industry specialists attended the Western Foodservice Expo, with almost 1,000 people in attendance at the UBC Stage throughout the three-day Ultimate Barista Challenge.
"The exceptional water made possible by Everpure Claris Systems, coupled with state-of-the-art equipment and high-caliber baristi challengers made this truly an Ultimate Barista Challenge," said Danny Johns, UBC head judge. “An important factor for the UBC is the quality of coffee which begins with exceptional filtered water by Everpure. Thank you for your vision and support.”
Everpure supported the UBC event by providing the filters for the espresso machines in the competition. Additionally each UBC finalist received the Everpure Claris Water Technology filtration system. The Claris system is a family of water filter cartridges specifically designed for hot drink machines. These cartridges help reduce lime scale and harmful contaminants, which affect water taste and odor, ultimately affecting the quality of the brewed coffee, espresso, tea and other hot drinks.
The system provides:
• Five-stage filtration;
• DuoBlend technology for customized water;
• MultiValve head with auto shutoff;
• Quick-change cartridges; and
• One-head-fits-all cartridges.
“Everpure is committed to providing the best water products to the foodservice and specialty coffee industries to ensure that they are serving their customers the finest food and beverages possible,” said Roy Parker, senior marketing manager for Everpure. “As such, we are committed to educating the industry about the importance of filtration systems in water using equipment, to reduce scale buildup and provide premium water for their operations.”
