Coffee machine maker Cimbali is extending a specialist grinding technology available on its flagship espresso machine to other products within its portfolio.
Its PGS (perfect grinding system) will now be built into its best selling superautomatic machines, with the S54 Dolcevita series the first bean-to-cup machine to benefit.
“PGS technology was originally only available on our M39 traditional espresso machine via the Magnum on Demand Grinder,” explained Matthew Tuffee, sales and marketing manager at Cimbali.
“Such has been the impact, that we are now rolling it out across our product portfolio, initially on other traditional machines such as the M100 but now to our superautomatic range too, where it plays a vital part in driving up beverage standards within a pressurised environment.”
With the integral PGS, the S54 grinder burrs will be automatically adjusted through the working day to ensure the quality of the finished drink is maintained across the speciality coffee menu.
Tuffee said that in a typical quick serve environment, someone is given the task of checking the grinder during each shift to make sure that no adjustments are required.
As these ‘espresso checks’ can be tricky and are often forgotten about, especially when there are queues at the till, the coffee quality can deteriorate over a period of time.
“Our new S54 PGS offers a failsafe way to deliver coffee to a pre-determined quality without the need for regular checking and adjustments, freeing up staff to concentrate on other areas of the business,” he said.
