Taylor UK has launched La Cimbali’s S20 range of automatic and semi-automatic espresso machines.
With models capable of producing 200 cups of coffee a day, the combination of a user-friendly interface, an integrated Wi-Fi system and a preheated completely metal group head are designed to produce a quality output.
La Cimbali’s S20 models, the CS11 Super Automatic bean-to-cup machine and TS4 Semi-Automatic machine are designed to combine a classic espresso machine aesthetic and modern technology.
An automated cleaning system should ensure hygiene, while a 7in touchscreen display is available with the S20 models, offering an immediate illustration of what the appliances can do.
A built-in soluble hot chocolate system offers up to 24 different drink options alongside two hot water selections that can be programmed into each machine. The accompanying images for the selection can be showcased on-screen, to make it easy for the operator to select the correct beverage, and to provide customers with a visual guide of the products on offer. For more personalisation, different colours for the interface and different screen savers can be chosen.
The S20 models can be remotely monitored via an integrated bi-directional Wi-Fi system. This is designed to make updating software, setting recipes and customising background images simple and intuitive.
Unnecessary downtime can also be prevented by remote monitoring, which makes it possible to ensure maintenance and cleaning tasks are completed correctly. Settings can also be uploaded manually by USB stick.
The S20-CS11 includes a pre-heated metal group head, which is designed for consistent extraction, even with single origin and specialty coffee.
The S20-TS4 semi-automatic machine features a fully automatic Turbosteam milk wand, which has four different milk programs. Operator safety is considered with the Turbo Steam Cold Touch coating on the milk wand – an insulating, non-stick material. This should keep the outer surface of the wand cool to the touch before, during and after steaming. As a result, it should also be easy to clean and the non-stick surface prevents milk residue sticking to it.
Daily washing cycles are managed by the Automatic Washing System (AWS). This built-in application is operated with one touch.
The La Cimbali S20 package, available through Taylor UK for both models, includes full onsite service, installation and training, and a preventative maintenance visit at the end of year one. The S20-CS11 is also accompanied with an 8litre black milk fridge that is located to left of the appliance.
Including the black milk fridge, the S20-CS11’s footprint measures 762mm high by 630mm wide by 620mm deep. The S20-TS4 is 762mm high by 370mm wide and 620mm deep.
