La Cimbali has added to the S Series of coffee machines with the launch of the S15, a fully automatic and super compact entry level model, capable of producing up to 150 beverages a day.

The S15 is designed for locations where space may be at a premium such as bakeries, offices, hotels, conference centres, convenience stores and similar smaller businesses where anticipated coffee volumes are low.

This machine incorporates patented Cimbali technologies including Smartboiler for optimum boiler performance and an integral Wi-Fi telemetry system which allows the remote monitoring of machine performance.

Daniel Clarke, MD of La Cimbali explained: “It seems that the industry has done such a great job of educating people through lockdown that we have become a nation of expert home baristas. This translates to a steep rise in expectations amongst consumers when enjoying beverages out of home.

“The S15 offers real benefits as it allows small businesses to compete with the high street by offering a great range of premium quality drinks, prepared to a professional barista standard, even if the daily coffee volumes are quite low.”

The S15 can be operated in barista assisted or self-serve mode with a 7” touchscreen which can be customised with recipe icons that are designed to be intuitive and simple to use.

With hot textured milk technology and a split in two powder hopper, the coffee machine can enable a flexible menu with scope to select from 96 different recipes based on fresh coffee beans, fresh or powder milk and soluble chocolate. Recipes can be switched up through the seasons or ‘specials’ can be added to the menu to ring the changes or support sales promotions etc.

Clarke added: “Clearly, hygiene is a key priority, so we are encouraging operators to invest in our free to use Cup4You technology as this allows the user to browse the menu and order favourite beverages directly from a smartphone or tablet.

“This touch-free ordering is a valuable feature and becoming increasingly popular with customers and business owners right now in light of the Covid pandemic.”
