Jacobs Douwe Egberts has launched its new Cafitesse Exellence Touch coffee machines for the catering sector.
The new machines use touchscreen technology, enabling consumers to quickly and easily choose from a wide range of coffee-shop style drinks, and also adapt the strength and volume of their chosen coffees to match their tastes, with the swipe of a finger.
Cafitesse Exellence Touch and Cafitesse Exellence Compact Touch offer the same operational performance benefits of the existing Cafitese range. Designed specifically for use by professional caterers, Cafitesse has always been first and foremost about delivering exceptional coffee experiences with a range of great tasting coffees for consumers, and the benefit of speed and efficiency for operators.
The Cafitesse Exellence system delivers a full range of coffee-shop style drinks, quickly and efficiently. The touchscreen interface can be personalised with messages from the operator and can even leave a message for customers when dispensing the coffee, adding a personal touch to their coffee experience.
The option to personalise coffee can be turned on or off by operators to maintain control and limit choice where this is appropriate. Operators could even simply offer black or white coffee, for a truly focussed operation.
The overall look of the machine has also been greatly improved with a new contemporary matte finish, ideal for use in front of house locations.
With the creation of a cup of black coffee taking from only 6 seconds, and a cappuccino from just 12 seconds, both machines are suitable for any operators including hotels, conferencing, large workplace and self-serve canteen environments who need both quality and volume. The larger machine can brew up to 600 cups per hour, and the Compact machine up to 140 cups per hour.
Martyn Bell, category marketing manager at Jacobs Douwe Egberts, said: “We are extremely proud to launch two new evolutions in our range of coffee machines.
“The new developments have been driven by consumer insights which brought to life just how important personalisation and engagement at the point of serve is – our new touchscreen technology will redefine the coffee experience in high quality canteens workplaces and hotels around the country.
“Whilst the consumer experience has been dramatically improved, we haven’t lost focus on the needs of the caterer, we’ve kept all the benefits Cafitesse is famous for: fresh coffee, no mess, no waste, no hassle.”
