Swiss brand, Egro, has launched Next Touch Coffee, a fully automatic coffee machine designed for drip coffee.
The unit is designed to create variety, thanks to a four coffee bean hopper system, with the quartet of base coffees said to be always available, along with up to 10 customisable coffee blends.
It can be configured with add-on options, business-focused IoT innovations and a range of payment systems.
Next Touch is designed to deliver quality fresh coffee, from the bean to the cup, with consistency and reliability over the long term.
Thanks to Multi-Drink software, it should be possible for users to create any recipe they wish in a few taps: select the blend or single origin, set the pre-infusion time and choose the desired coffee strength. The 10.1” HD touchscreen interface is based on the Android operating system.
The drip coffee is ground straight from the bean and brewed on demand, in all cup sizes or in carafes. The coffee is said to be always ground and prepared instantly upon order, without any waste, to enable the taste and aroma of each coffee bean in every cup.
Claimed to be faster than a traditional drip coffee maker, it brews only what a site is selling, with no recovery time required.
Next Touch Coffee features the self-adjusting grinder for controlling and automatically regulating the grinding, The stainless steel dispensing group, with a 22g brewing chamber should eliminate recovery time between one preparation and the next. On request, Egro Next Touch Coffee can be fitted out with left side coffee outlet for ease of use, including with 1-litre carafes and extra large cups.
Recommended for businesses with an average daily requirement of 200 coffee cups, Egro Next Touch Coffee is designed to meet the various needs of convenience stores, petrol stations, fast-food and self-service restaurants, and all venues serving drip coffee.
Egro is part of the Italian-headquartered Rancilio Group, which itself is owned by the Ali Group.
