Taylor is now supplying the S15, the latest compact bean to cup coffee machine from Italian manufacturer La Cimbali.
The S15 combines La Cimbali’s knowledge of coffee machines, gained since it was founded in 1912, with the latest technology to create an automatic coffee maker that can produce up to 96 different drinks automatically.
With a maximum output of 150 cups a day, the S15 is suitable for smaller locations that want to provide quality coffee without a larger, more technical espresso machine.
The S15 is available in fully or semi-automatic versions. The fully automatic version is for self-service applications, while the semi-automatic has a milk wand that allows operators to create different drinks simply. Both versions include a dual hopper system that provides a supply of coffee beans, with an optional hopper that can hold chocolate powder.
Both models feature an automatic washing system that provides a thorough clean for a hygienic and efficient operation.
Controlled via a touchscreen interface, the S15s can be fully customised according to requirements. Video clips, screensavers and animations can all be added to help it fit with a location’s branding, as well as providing simple instructions for customers for self-service operations.
The S15 features full wifi functionality, allowing operators to monitor the machine’s operating data. They can also create and customise recipes remotely from a computer, or on a tablet or smartphone, thanks to the Cup4You app, available for Android and iOS.
Dimensions of 350mm (w) x 600mm (d) x 718mm (h) and a standard 13A power connection should make it easy to install, just requiring connection to water supply and drainage.
David Rees, marketing manager of Taylor UK, said: “La Cimbali have been at the forefront of the development of coffee machines for over a century.
“The S15 reflects that depth of expertise, making it simple for operators to provide customers with a high quality coffee menu at the touch of a button.”
