Self-service on users’ smartphones

Hygiene already played a central role in the catering trade well before 2020. Thanks to fully automatic cleaning, Clean in Place (CIP®), and an easy-care housing, the fully automatic coffee machines in the XT and CT series from Melitta Professional offer the best conditions for hygiene safety. Another advantage is offered by MELITTA® REMOTE COFFEE® – contactless self-service next to the machine by smartphone or tablet.

Freshly ground and freshly brewed

Filter coffee from whole beans / Depending on requirements: up to 500 cups per hour Serving freshly brewed coffee to go: something even allowed during the pandemic.

Tea water dispensed at exactly the right temperature

Perfect for Earl Grey, Rooibos Lime Ginger, Gourmet Herbal Tea or Blood Orange Organic, but clearly too hot for Green Manjolai and Japan Sencha: the boiling point is not the right brewing temperature for every tea variety. Green tea flavors develop best between 60 and 80 degrees, depending on blend and personal taste. Melitta Professional has therefore developed its new hot water dispensers Melitta® Cafina® XT HW6 and HW9 for convenient, temperature-accurate preparation of an attractive range of teas for the out-of-home market. Six or nine liters of water can be stored and set to the desired temperature between 50 and 98 degrees using the touchscreen display.

Keeping an eye on coffee businesses online

Melitta® INSIGHTS offers coffee machine operators central access to the digital world of their coffee machines. The online platform enables detailed analysis of the production of individual beverages or aggregated product groups and supports the specific compilation of all the necessary information about the coffee business during day to day operations. It is easy to benchmark any locations, even internationally, intuitively in just a few steps. Managers can keep an eye on sales figures and dispensing times right down to each individual beverage. Up-to-date key information on the operating status of the machines is displayed meaningfully, for example showing in good time when beans, cocoa or milk will need refilling, giving cleaning information and indicating when the coffee grounds container needs emptying. Melitta INSIGHTS therefore offers comprehensive operational and strategic advantages for operators.

Weihnachten mal anders - mit Irish Coffee.

Dr. Steffen Schwarz betreibt eines der größten Forschungs- und Trainingszentren für Kaffee. Er ist ein leidenschaftlicher Kaffeeliebhaber, dessen Kolumne wir Ihnen gerne zur Inspiration empfehlen.

Weihnachten mal anders - mit Irish Coffee.

Noch vor einem Jahr war alles ganz anders - die Weihnachtsmärkte waren offen, man traf sich mit Freunden und Bekannten auf einen Glühwein, ging ins Restaurant, ins Theater, Musical oder Kino oder besuchte ein Museum in der Zeit vor Weihnachten oder zwischen den Jahren.

Irgendwo in China gab es eine Epidemie - weit weg, Sack Reis - so etwas gab es ja immer wieder einmal irgendwo auf der Welt. Niemand hätte sich damals ausgemalt oder vorstellen können, wo wir heute alle stehen. An einer völlig anderen Stelle, in einer anderen Welt, die aber - auch wenn man es sich mit den drohenden weiteren Shutdowns gerade kaum vorstellen kann - weitergehen wird und muss.
