    Coffee Machine

    We have to spend a lot of time on the design of our coffee machines to make it a perfect match for the other products. By the way, it makes great coffee too. With a unique interaction and control philosophy based on a TFT-touch interface, you got all the possibilities to get your coffee done in exactly the way you want it. The interface consists of over 50 different programs, options and settings. For example customizable beverages, language selection, automatic rinsing, hot water setting and descaling program. All the daily use components are easily detachable very easy to clean. No solvents are needed to wash the machine, and even the descaling operation requires a simple natural descaler instead of the usual dangerous chemical tablets.
