For PROBAT, the industry pioneer in coffee processing equipment, the goal from day one was to lead by example in future-proofing the sector. With the P05 hydrogen roaster, the German company has once again substantiated this claim: Sustainable by using hydrogen as the primary energy source without compromising on taste, that's probably the most apt way to characterize the P05 hydrogen, the winner of the Best New Product Award 2023.
PROBAT CTO Thomas Koziorowski, who accepted the trophy together with Product Manager Julian Pöpping and Head of Sales Specialty Roaster Jens Roelofs, was visibly relieved: "I am really happy that the importance of our innovative hydrogen technology for the green transformation of the coffee industry has been underlined once again with this award. Whether it's a new acquisition or a retrofit for installed machines of any size, we support our customers in switching to hydrogen or electricity.”
The jury–members of the SCA Board and SCA staff–who presented the award to the team at the PROBAT booth in Athens, also expressed their congratulations on this great achievement and massive step towards a more sustainable coffee sector.
Each year, the Best New Product Award recognizes new products that represent the best in quality and value to the industry. This year’s competition saw winners across five categories.
Anyone interested can test hydrogen and electrical roasting on the P05 specialty roasters in the PROBAT R&D Center in Emmerich.
