Nespresso announced that they are building a new commercial size espresso machine to help restaurants and cafes serve their brand of capsule-based espresso. The new commercial machine is automated giving easy and quick access to high quality drinks in high volumes. From the picture you can see that this thing is big, and pretty much the anti-Pixie in size.
The machine is connected through a SIM card to Nespresso, allowing them to help with diagnostics, maintenance and repair. I would imagine they also peer into consumption data and report on that too.
The lessons that they learn on energy savings on the consumer side (The Pixie automatically shuts off after about 9 minutes), they are applying here. THe Nespresso Aguila will go into a low energy state after 30 minutes of non-use and an even deeper sleep mode after a protracted time.
The Nespresso Aguila launches this Fall.
Press release follows
At Nespresso, continuous innovation and a passion for perfection have been key drivers in the quest to consistently deliver the highest quality coffee to consumers worldwide, for enjoyment at home and away from home. Nespresso continues to innovate in its Business to business offerings, providing solutions designed to meet the needs of some of the most discerning hosts in the world's foremost hotels and restaurants.
Nespresso provides a range of machines dedicated to professional use that meet the different needs and expectations of our customers. The new Aguila machine is the professional machine specially designed to combine the best of traditional coffee-making methods with the latest advances from Nespresso, delivering unmatched in-cup quality for high-volume establishments. Aguila is being unveiled for the first time in the Middle East at the Hotel Show, taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 17-19 May 2011.
Aguila is the fruit of a collaboration between Nespresso and Thermoplan AG, a Swiss company specialized in state of the art milk systems and a leader in its field since 1974. The union of these areas of expertise provides the ultimate experience for Nespresso Business to Business customers. With one touch, the machine easily serves bespoke hot and cold coffee beverages and the most exquisite milk-based recipes to delight all customers' tastes and preferences. Four extraction heads work simultaneously, enabling front-of-house personnel to increase capacity during peak hours.
Aguila users benefit from a high level of autonomy to manage high volumes of coffee preparation in their establishments. An internet connection via a SIM card enables online tracking of the machine's maintenance needs. Aguila also benefits from a modular "fail-safe" design based on the autonomy of its different components. This feature allows one part of the machine to be repaired while the other part continues to work. For further ease of use, the machine also benefits from daily semi-automatic cleaning and rinsing system, at the simple touch of a button.
Sustainable development is a high priority for Nespresso. This is why Aguila enters "energy saving" mode after 30 minutes of inactivity and "maximum energy saving mode" after a longer period of inactivity.
Available this fall, Aguila, designed in an elegant and sleek combination of inox and aluminium, promises to revolutionize the way in high volume establishments - as well as leading businesses - seek to meet and exceed the expectations of their discerning customers.
