Douwe Egberts allows everyone to enjoy a taste of excellence

07 July 2011

Leading coffee supplier Douwe Egberts Coffee Systems has unveiled a revolutionary new coffee machine, which will set a new benchmark when it comes to serving high volumes of speciality coffee in self-service situations.

Cafitesse Excellence is a compact, user-friendly dispenser that is capable of serving up to 600 cups of premium quality ground coffee per hour and requires less than 10 minutes of cleaning each week.

Currently, most organisations that have high volume coffee requirements choose instant coffee machines or flasks to ensure supply meets demand. However, serving coffee to the masses by traditional means often results in a ‘warm and wet’ beverage being served, which the majority of people refrain from drinking due to the lack of quality. Modern day consumers expect premium coffee and a full variety of coffee drinks wherever they are, be it in the canteen, on the high street or at a conference, and it had forced organisations to change their approach.

Douwe Egberts’ Cafitesse Excellence addresses all of the issues that organisations commonly face when it comes to serving coffee quickly to a large number of people. Developed with ease-of-use and quality in mind, the machine has a stylish, contemporary design and combines with a new 100% arabica, high-roast coffee and an innovative hygienic milk solution. As each cup is made on demand, every drink is consistent and the company believes the new machine produces its best ever cup quality.

What’s more, the machine is the quickest dispenser of high quality roast and ground coffee available, capable of producing one cup in just three second. It also features a simple user interface which lights up when people approach the unit. Consumers are presented with a popular choice, including a Latte Macchiato, Cappuccino, Espresso and Black Coffee, and receive their selection at the touch of a button.

Douwe Egberts has also ensured cleaning and refilling are simple and easy to carry out. By introducing a clear LCD display, on the face of the machine, owners are presented with step-by-step information on the cleaning requirements and advised as to when it needs refilling. Replenishing the machine can be done by hand and as both the coffee and milk are produced in a Bag-in-Box format that there is no possibility of spillage, which improves hygiene.

Paul Freeman, Marketing Director at Douwe Egberts Coffee Systems, commented: "Cafitesse Excellence is a truly revolutionary coffee machine, which we believe will change the way in which organisations serve high volumes of coffee in self-service situations. Our customers required a dispenser that inspired new confidence for front of house occasions and produced high quality coffee.

"However, speed could not be neglected, so we were challenged to develop a solution that delivered on aesthetics, speed and quality. The functional benefits of Cafitesse Excellence exceeds anything currently on the market and will allow everyone to enjoy a great quality coffee experience," added Paul.
