Coffee, the next tech frontier

The British Coffee Association states that around 2 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide everyday. Following this trend, leading coffee-chain Starbucks launched its wildly successful cold brew coffee in 2015. With the cold brew craze leading to internet searches growing at 158 % per year, IIC decided to leverage this trend to their expertise, by utilizing their own innovative solution to assist coffee brands, cafes, and coffee machine manufacturers alike.

IIC’s current suite of solutions include OREO, a detachable intelligent electronic scale, FREDDA, the world’s first patented cold extraction technology, and the IoT Edge Hub, effortlessly connecting coffee equipment to the internet. Furthermore, IIC’s solutions have been commercially adopted by coffee hardware companies including Hiroia, and their recently launched ZIGGY product. The combination of pure coffee bean aroma and ZIGGY’s smooth flavor have astounded the coffee industry globally, leading to endorsements from top industry influencers such as 2016 and 2017 WCE World Coffee Brewing Champions, Tetsu Kasuya and Chad Wang, as well as SCAJ accreditation review Kyouichi Sekiguchi and Specialty Coffee Consultant Ryan Spinoglio.
