Sarah Mendak, the owner of California Coffee Bar in Pittsburgh, installed PURIFII AER W by Luminii during the Summer of 2021. When local news caught wind of the cafe’s step to protect customers and staff, they covered it, and customer traffic began to pick up. A year later, sales are higher than ever.
“Our sales have never been better. They’re double what our normal sales were pre-pandemic. That’s due to a combination of factors, but PURIFII is definitely one of them.” —Sarah Mendak, California Coffee Bar

What are some features you enjoy most about PURIFII and why?
The best features of PURIFII are peace of mind and the ability to offer a safe environment to our customers and staff. We knew how effective it is in disinfecting a space. The COVID pandemic exposed our safety, health, and financial vulnerabilities, and PURIFII gave us the confidence to know we are doing everything we can to prevent something like this from happening again.
