Start-up firm Hatfields London has released the NitroPress coffee dispenser, a solution to cater to the nitro coffee trend in coffee shops.
Serving cold brew coffee infused with nitrogen is said to create a smooth taste and a texture similar to a stout beer. Right now, it is currently served through draught coffee systems which Hatfields believes requires a substantial investment and brings wastage of unused coffee, as well as taking up valuable front of house/bar space.
The start-up company feels that the NitroPress offers an alternative, cost effective and more flexible method of serving this coffee option, whilst also making it easier to customise the coffee. Flavoured syrups can be added to bring a variety of options to the offering too.
NitroPress combines a handheld dispenser with pure nitrogen gas cartridges developed especially for this purpose. The unit is filled with coffee and pressurised. Flow controlled portions are served through the special nozzle, designed to create a cascading effect and smooth foam head.
Hatfields MD and mechanical engineer, Jack Hatfield, said: “As part of our vision to make nitro coffee accessible to all, we took the original concept and optimised it – stripping out complexities to keep it simple.
“The goal was to place a NitroPress in front of anyone and for them to intuitively work out how to use it. When combined with an excellent quality cold brew coffee, the NitroPress offers an unrivalled customer experience.”
