UCC Coffee UK and Ireland has launched two new additions to the Thermoplan Black&White range to the UK market – the Black&White4c with integrated powder and flavour station and the Black&White4c with under-counter refrigeration.
The two models are part of the Swiss-made compact Black&White4c bean to cup machine range. The launch of the two new models should allow customisation to meet specific coffee service needs while retaining simplicity of operation.
The integrated powder and flavour station model includes hot chocolate and syrup-based drinks to take advantage of seasonal and upselling opportunities, building on the machine’s pre-set menu of 30 barista-standard drinks. The under-counter refrigeration model is designed to include the automatic machine’s milk system without sacrificing counter space.
Marcus Swift, head of sales and marketing, UCC Coffee UK and Ireland, said: “Since its launch in September 2016, the Black&White4c has made barista quality coffee accessible and practical for the foodservice and hospitality market. We’re constantly listening to our customers’ needs – we’ve brought these two new modules to the UK to allow non-specialist operators to both expand their core drinks range or and increase efficiency behind the bar. The new models have increased the capability of the machine while retaining the reliability and barista-standard product that comes from its high build quality. Reliability is critical for consistency, which is fundamental for customer satisfaction.”
