At Internorga (April 30 to May 04, 2022, Messe Hamburg, hall A4, stand 300), coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer will focus on the individual flexibility of its machines and services in different application scenarios. The absolute highlight of this year’s trade fair presentation: the new Schaerer Coffee Skye will be presented to the public for the first time in Hamburg as part of its launch. The latest family member of the Schaerer coffee machine range is designed for areas with medium demand, including small restaurants, offices or bakeries as well as mobile café concepts for events. As with its big brother, the Schaerer Coffee Soul, the technical equipment and user guidance system of the Schaerer Coffee Skye can be easily adapted to customer needs and applications thanks to the special Select concept. At its stand, Schaerer will also show how the Schaerer “Twin Milk” system can be used to prepare a wide range of vegan coffee specialties as well as how these popular drinks can be used to attract new customer groups. In addition, Schaerer will demonstrate the added value customers can derive from integrating the Schaerer Coffee Link digital solution and the new Schaerer Prisma API. The range of professional filter coffee machines from the American manufacturer Wilbur Curtis also makes its debut in Hamburg. In this area, Schaerer will present, among other things, the Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and Curtis G4 Gemini IntelliFresh Twin filter coffee concepts, now available for the first time on the German and Austrian markets, as well as the Curtis G4 Omega brewing system from high performance coffee.
Schaerer Skye Cafe
With the launch of the Schaerer Coffee Skye at Internorga, the Swiss coffee machine manufacturer is giving trade fair visitors a preview of what Schaerer customers can expect in 2022: The Schaerer Coffee Skye is the second machine in the range of Schaerer products which, thanks to the Select concept, are precisely tailored to the individual needs of the customer. Designed for medium demand, it is particularly well suited to small and medium-sized businesses. “The Schaerer Coffee Skye not only stands for flexibility in choosing the technical equipment and the optimal mode of operation. Thanks to its compact design and the integrated water tank, the Schaerer Coffee Skye can be used to serve the entire range of high-quality specialty coffees virtually anywhere there is a power connection. We are very pleased to present the Schaerer Coffee Skye at its launch at Internorga”, says Hansjürg Marti, Managing Director of Schaerer Deutschland GmbH and Director of Sales and Service at Schaerer AG.
Vegan coffee specialties
Coffee is no longer just a stimulant, it’s a drink that complements your lifestyle and underlines your individuality. A current example of this is the growing demand, especially among young coffee drinkers, for vegan coffee specialties made from oats, almonds or soy. The Schaerer “Twin Milk” system available for the Schaerer Coffee Soul with the Select concept expands the drinks menu to include these popular alternatives to classic coffees such as cappuccinos and latte macchiatos. The “Twin Milk” system has two 4.5 liter milk canisters, allowing you to store cow’s milk in one canister and a vegetable drink in the other. When the coffee specialty is selected, the correct type is automatically used and flows into the cup at the desired temperature and with the perfect foam consistency. At Internorga, visitors can experience for themselves the incredible taste and consistency of vegan creations prepared with a fully automatic machine.
Expand the digital toolbox
When buying professional coffee machines, networking plays an increasingly important role. Coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer is one of the industry pioneers when it comes to digitizing coffee machine operations. With the Schaerer Prisma, the company adds to its digital toolbox a customizable API (application programming interface) that makes it easy to connect Schaerer coffee machines to customer-specific applications, software solutions and systems (e.g. CRM or ERP). The Schaerer Prisma offers customers almost unlimited possibilities to use digital functions to improve their coffee shop operations. Examples are connecting to apps for ordering and payment as well as creating loyalty programs and using coffee machines in unstaffed convenience stores. In addition to its ability to adapt to individual IT infrastructures and customer requirements, the Schaerer Prisma also functions as a local connection which enables much faster data transfer than cloud-based APIs.
New additions to the Wilbur Curtis range of filter coffee machines
Wilbur Curtis professional drip coffee machines meet the highest standards for beverage quality and drip coffee service. In Hamburg, visitors to the Schaerer stand will have the opportunity to really get to know the Curtis philosophy and its powerful range of machines. The focus is on three solutions that expand the existing range to include brewing systems for particularly high coffee throughput. The Curtis G4 ThermoProX Twin and Curtis G4 Gemini IntelliFresh Twin offer twice the capacity of their smaller sibling models with two containers and two brew groups. This enables peak outputs of up to 113 liters of filter coffee per hour, meaning both concepts are ideal for areas with high customer volumes, including service stations, self-service restaurants or bakeries in busy places. The Curtis G4 Omega high performance coffee brewing system is perfect for hotels, catering, banquets or group catering in hospitals and nursing homes with high standards of filter coffee quality. The performance data of the Curtis G4 Omega speaks for itself: 113 liters of filter coffee can be prepared per hour, as the large stainless steel container holds 25 liters per brew. In all three new products, the G4 digital control system takes coffee preparation to a whole new technological level and also simplifies the preparation and dispensing of aromatic filter coffee. The combination of intuitive operation with the icon-controlled user interface, flexible programming and real-time feedback ensures process reliability and consistently high coffee quality. Individual taste profiles can also be defined and saved.
