TAUNUSSTEIN, Germany – BRITA SE, the expert in optimising and customising drinking water, will exhibit at the Specialty Coffee Expo (SCE) for the first time. North American daughter company Vivreau will represent the Group. BRITA is proud to be official water filtration sponsor of the World Brewers Cup Championship again at this year’s SCE, under the Vivreau brand.

The SCE takes place in Chicago from 12 – 14 April 2024. The Vivreau booth (No. 2461) will be at McCormick Place

The Specialty Coffee Expo, organised by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA), is the largest coffee event in North America. It’s the annual gathering for coffee innovation and culture. This year, it will host two of the World Coffee Championships (WCC) competitions. Vivreau will supply water for the World Brewers Cup Championship (WBrC), to exact WCC specifications. Baristas will experience Vivreau filtration technology and expertise first-hand.

“We’ve been the official water filtration sponsor of WCC competitions for over a decade now. This shows the depth of our commitment,” says Thomas Hoerning, BRITA’s Vice President Strategic Marketing, Professional Filters. “We partner with the SCA because we want to support the global coffee community. We give them the best water filtration expertise they can get. Water quality has a huge influence on the taste of coffee. After all – a cup of coffee is 98% water, so you want that water to be the best it can. We look forward to sharing all we know about water with the specialty coffee community.”

BRITA offers quality filtration solutions for tap water, regardless of the mineral composition of the local supply. The broad range of BRITA filters, tailored to individual needs, provides the basis for perfect hot drinks. In coffee brewing, water filtration is particularly important. Unwanted elements that could impact taste or aroma are effectively removed. This brings out the best of the natural coffee bean characteristics for baristas.

This is its first participation in a North American SCA event. As official water filtration sponsor for WBrC championship, the company is confident the competition will have an even playing field. BRITA filtration expertise ensures consistent, high-quality water – to specification – for all competitors.
