With our patented ALPS (Accelerated Low Pressure System) technology, your customers can now savor their favorite brewed coffee the way the roast masters intended: perfectly ground, brewed, and prepared one cup at a time, in under 35 seconds. And no more throwing away batches of brewed coffee – it’s fresh in the moment, all day.
Using this technology the Ascent can brew two distinctly different coffee roasts, blends, or single-origins from the same machine, unveiling subtle coffee notes as nature intended, just like in varietal wines. After years of innovative development, the Ascent grinds fresh whole beans in front of you, brews to the perfect recipe of time, pressure, and filtered water, and delivers it fast, wherever and whenever your customers want it. And have your customers bring their decaffeinated friends too… or the ones who rave about Sumatra. There is a delicious cup of fresh coffee waiting for everyone.
“Concordia is the best company that I have ever done business with.”
– M. Yorke Smith

What Is ALPS Brewing Technology?
Pioneered by Concordia in 2005 with the express goal to deliver the on-demand Gold Cup brewed coffee experience in a fraction of the time of traditional brewers, the ALPS process brews at pressures much lower than traditional espresso machines. The balance of pressure, flow-characteristics and chamber geometry is critical in creating the drip coffee flavor profile in a fast, on-demand system.
In addition to its speed, the ALPS system uses no filters or other consumables that remove beneficial oils and aromatics from the customer’s cup.
In its fourth generation, the patented ALPS system is further optimized to provide superior extraction of drip-grind coffees and provides an optional pre-infusion step for flavor refinement.
