Stand 3550, Excel London, 29th February – 3rd March.
At Hotelympia 2016, Caffeine Limited will be showing its latest Schaerer bean-to-cup machines with an advanced milk system, which gives operators total control of the texture and temperature of the foam. The new ‘Best Foam’ system delivers the best ever lattes, flat whites and cappuccinos, and other espresso drinks – foaming the milk even better than a barista.
The patented milk system allows operators to create individual milk-based coffees of top barista quality – fully automated and with consistently high quality results. The system precisely controls the process and creates the exact type of foam required for specific drinks – a system called ‘micro bubble technology’. So the foam for one drink can be stiffer or creamier than for another – at the touch of a button.
The Coffee Art Plus ‘Best Foam’ machines can create special, bespoke foams. For example, on the latest Coffee Art Plus machine there’s a button to create a Cappuccino Fujiyama, which is topped with a peaked ‘mountain’ of creamy foam.
It can be used with both hot and cold beverages. “Cold espresso-based drinks are growing rapidly in popularity – the ability to create beautifully textured cold foams is another benefit of the system,” says Justin Stockwell, Caffeine’s managing director.
“This latest technology is a very exciting development,” he says. “It’s simple to use and the operator can set the exact consistency and temperature of milk foam that they want, to ensure the perfect serve, whatever the drink.”
As well as a range of coffees, the Coffee Art Plus ‘Best Foam’ machine can make other hot and cold drinks, such as milkshakes and hot chocolate. Caffeine has recently launched a Flavour Point bolt-on which enables the machine to create a variety of flavoured drinks using syrups or alcohol. In fact, with the Flavour Point bolt-on, a Coffee Art Plus menu can be programmed with well over 100 drink variations.
Coffee experts from Caffeine Limited will be on hand to discuss the latest coffee culture trends on stand 3550.
