Over the last ten years there has been a dramatic change in the nation’s attitude to coffee. Consumers are much more aware of the origin of coffee and the way it is brewed and consequently expectations in terms of taste and quality are on the rise.
The upward trend in quality and the presence of some fantastic barista run cafes is placing increasing pressure on other businesses to deliver coffee to a similar, exceptionally high standard. This lends itself to the continuing popularity of the traditional machine. “There is no doubt that when in the rights hands, a traditional machine makes the best espresso possible.” Says Matthew Tuffee, UK sales and marketing manager, La Cimbali, the world’s largest coffee equipment manufacturer.
However, a traditional machine is not necessarily the best choice in applications such as hotels, especially when there are peaks and troughs in demand for beverages and where the main priority is not the coffee.
The theatre and drama may be appealing but to get the best from a traditional machine requires the skill of a trained barista. So manufacturers such as Cimbali are making it easier to achieve that perfect cup of coffee every time with a new breed of super automatic machine which are simple to operate yet guarantee a consistent taste and quality across the beverage menu.
A popular choice for use in public spaces within hotels where demand is unlikely to exceed 100 beverages a day, for example, the reception, lounge, meeting rooms and breakfast bars, the Cimbali Q10, is an ideal self serve coffee machine which is easy to use, versatile and at just 35mm wide, very compact.
As a fully automatic machine, the key functions such as dosing and grinding the coffee, heating the water and frothing the milk are pre-programmed into the machine by Cimbali on delivery, leaving the guests free to enjoy the taste and aroma of freshly ground coffee, all at the push of a button. (touch screen operation is available). Safe in the knowledge that customers’ hot beverages need are taken care of, leaves staff free to concentrate on other areas of the business.
The Q10 is a robust, top quality machine designed and produced by Cimbali, the world’s largest professional coffee machine manufacturer.
