Foodservice Equipment Market (FEM) believes it has got just the thing for coffee shops which are all about speed of service: a blender that can mix up an ice cold Frappuccino or milkshake in just 12 seconds.
With coffee shops having to up their game due to increased competition in their sector, the Hamilton Beach Tempest blender is aimed squarely at high street outlets keen to serve customers as efficiently as possible.
FEM says that in the summer months, especially, not everyone wants a hot coffee, so the ability to offer iced coffees, such as Costa Coffee’s famous Frescato, is one way to edge ahead of the competition.
The Tempest’s patented wave action continually forces the mixture onto the blades, breaking down the ice from a granita texture to a super smooth drinks profile.
Its two-speed setting, jump cycle and pulse button offer precision blending over a wide variety of drinks, further expanding the choice that can be offered to customers.
The blender also boasts an automatic shut-off timer that frees up staff to start preparing the next order while the first drink is mixing. A 1.9 litre stackable jug with clear measuring marks is supplied as standard.
To save even more time a flashing red light on the base of the unit alerts the operator if the jug is not positioned correctly.
