he observed.
Newco, based in St. Charles, MO,
offers several new touchless solutions. Its Newtap faucet was originally
designed to convert glass bowl brewers
to increase the coffee volume from
half-gallon to a 1-gallon stainless steel
dispenser in the same footprint while
adding a convenient faucet for dispensing. Now, either a glass bowl brewer or
a thermal brewer can be easily adapted
to accommodate a Newtap touchless
faucet to create a safer environment.
To retrofit a glass bowl brewer to
the Newtap touchless solution and
replace decanters on warmer model
brewers, the warmer ring secures the
vessel in place for safe and secure
push dispensing. The curved bottom
keeps coffee fresh and hot by reducing
the surface contact with the warmer
plate. The legs raise the brewer so the
cup will fit under the faucet when
depressed and the sight gauge allows
users to see the coffee level.
Newco's Cup Companion dispenser is another COVID-inspired
innovation. It sits besides the brewer
and uses motion-activated technology to enable users to add sweetener,
powdered creamer and flavors to
their beverages without touching the

technologies have the

machine. Users place the cup on the
drip tray under the desired flavor,
sugar or creamer and the cup activates
the sensor to dispense the powder.
To add a different product or receive
another serving, they simply place the
cup back on the drip tray.
The dispenser fits under most
cabinets and has three separate hoppers with 2-lb. capacity each and
programmable portion control. It
accommodates most cup sizes with
use of optional 4 " legs and the entire
front can be customized to promote a
brand or service.
Combining the convenience, coffeehouse quality and customization today's
consumers demand is Newco's Bistro
Touch, which prepares specialty drinks
by combining on-demand coffee with
powdered milk and chocolate. Newco's
CX Touch prepares specialty drinks
with single-serve pods with powdered
milk and chocolate. What's new for
both products is that they now include
QR code technology to allow customers to easily choose a beverage and
customize the size and strength of each
drink from the phone app. Retrofit kits
are available for existing equipment.
