Beverage Maker Filter
A common way to maintain coffee and espresso machines is to descale the water tanks, often using chemicals and multiple brewing cycles. Descaling is very labour intensive and needs to be done on a regular basis, especially in hard water areas where limescale builds up quickly.
Therefore, BRITA® developed AquaGusto, a filter specifically designed for the water tanks present in coffee and espresso machines for commercial use. For optimum quality, the AquaGusto filter needs to be exchanged every 6 months. BRITA® desired a simple method to indicate this period of time passing.
Instead of relying on memory, the filter exchange display offers a clear visual indication to the user when AquaGusto needs replacing, ensuring that quality coffee can always be enjoyed. The Timestrip PLUS indicator also places additional accountability in the hands of FEDEX to fulfil service level agreements.
