avercasso® CS One, the AI-Powered Coffee Bean Sorter, Wins the iF DESIGN AWARD 2024

Taipei, Taiwan – March 6, 2023 – avercasso®, a leading coffee equipment maker, has achieved a significant milestone by winning the esteemed iF DESIGN AWARD for its innovative product, the avercasso® CS One. With unparalleled stability and precision packed in a beautifully designed body, it sorts green coffee beans efficiently and automatically, revolutionizing the coffee-making process by streamlining operations and minimizing labor costs.

AVer CEO Andy Hsi expresses the concept behind the AI coffee bean sorter: “The avercasso® CS One represents a harmonious blend of rationality and sensibility, harnessing AI intelligence to efficiently sort through green coffee beans. Its sleek and beautiful design caters to diverse aesthetics, seamlessly fitting into various styles of cafes.”

With an increasing demand for specialty coffee, AVer has introduced the world’s first commercialized AI coffee bean sorting machine — the avercasso® CS One. In the

specialty coffee industry, the precise selection of premium beans is crucial to the quality of the roast and brew. The traditional method, done by hand, is laborious, time-consuming, and prone to errors due to fatigue. Through AI automation, the avercasso CS One takes over this demanding task, allowing more time for the roaster to take on tasks, such as roasting and brewing. This also frees up time to optimize their customer service procedures, giving them valuable time to focus on tasks that require a human touch.

The CS One features:

  • Over 99% accuracy in identifying SCA-classified defective coffee beans, with an industry-leading green coffee bean database for AI bean identification and analysis
  • Proprietary optical lens and image recognition technologies
  • State-of-the-art AI algorithm for coffee bean sorting
  • Available in three thoughtfully selected hues — bronze gold, rose gold, and champagne gold.

The CS One won over the 132-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, automating green coffee bean selection. The competition was intense: almost 11,000 entries were submitted from 72 countries in hopes of receiving the seal of quality.
