Caffeine says the latest Coffee Prime espresso machine is aimed at both coffee connoisseurs and accountants.
Manufactured in Switzerland by bean-to-cup specialist Schaerer, it produces gourmet beverages at the press of a button. However, it also saves costs and cuts down on energy consumption.
It can make up to 100 espressos or 70 cappuccinos per hour and is aimed at a range of sectors, including staff catering, conference and meeting rooms, directors’ dining, restaurants and hotels.
A key feature of the Coffee Prime is its ability to be adapted, with the addition of ancillary equipment, as a site’s needs change.
Larger bean hoppers and a powder system with large container can be added at a later date.
Optional accessories include a fresh milk system, two bean grinders, and a cup dispenser module.
Another useful feature is that the standard Coffee Prime can be either mains water- or tank-fed.
So if a plumbed-in unit needs to be moved to a meeting room, it can be easily disconnected from the mains, carried to the room and then run using the on-board tank.
The base Coffee Prime unit measures 344mm wide by 538mm deep and 560mm high. It has a list price of from £5,000, is backed by a comprehensive 12 month parts and labour warranty and is available through distributors nationally.
