Peak Water was the logical next step for Colonna. A cup of filter coffee is 98% water. It doesn’t surprise anyone that water is important in making a great brew – but it does surprise people how big an impact it has.
In early 2017, whilst working on developing new under-the-counter commercial water filtration systems for cafés, Maxwell and Chris Hendon (a chemist at a local university) struck upon the innovation – taking an everyday accessible water filter format, like a home filter jug, and integrating a variable filter system into it. With the launch of the Peak Water jug a new precedent has been set for coffee drinking at home.
In 2018, Peak Water launched a successful Kickstarter campaign and following support from Innovate UK Peak Water V1 is officially launching in June 2020. Fulfilling the original Kickstarter orders and pre-orders is now nearing completion.
Access to working capital and stock management as well as continuous product development and R&D are critical as the project becomes fully commercialised. Peak Water has huge growth potential through a global distribution model which has already been partially established.
Both companies are currently based out of the roastery in Yate, Bristol but continue to collaborate with industry experts, partners and suppliers across the UK and internationally.
This role will primarily be focused on the activity within Colonna Coffee.
