Coffee Planet Introduces Fastest Espresso System in the World

AME Info

Coffee Planet LLC, the region's leading provider of automated self-serve espresso systems, announced today the launch of the Concordia "Integrated Beverage System 6+" (IBS6+), the fastest commercial espresso system available on the market.

On exhibition for the first time at Gulfood 2010 in Dubai, Concordia's latest innovation was developed specifically for applications where consistent café quality and speed of service are critical. In a single step, the IBS6+ pumps milk from the integrated refrigerator, steams and foams it to the perfect consistency, and infuses flavours all at the rate of one ounce per second.

Richard Jones, Managing Director of Coffee Planet, said:
    "Customers want to purchase café quality espresso drinks in locations other than the traditional café. Speed of service, beverage quality, and equipment reliability are critical. The new IBS6+ gives the operator the speed of service that they demand. We have been using Concordia coffee systems for 5 years and know them to be the best in the world, so this is a great new addition to our portfolio and a great pleasure for us to be the launch market for Concordia's latest machine. They are light years ahead of anyone else."

The technical aspects of the machine were explained by David Isset, President of Concordia Coffee Systems USA, "At the same time, we have simplified the milk preparation process, and that leads to increased reliability, provides additional control over drink temperatures and milk foam, and provides whisper quiet operation. We are really looking forward to people's reaction at Gulfood 2010."

The IBS6+ features two fresh espresso bean choices stored in high-capacity hoppers; and a solid-state, on-board refrigerator that holds two standard one-gallon containers of fresh milk. The system uses six, all-naturally flavored Torani syrups and sauces that are infused into the beverage during the milk preparation process. The infusion process is accomplished using the company's proprietary, patented EspressJet Flavor System. The microprocessor controlled IBS6+ manages portion control and the precision brewing process, and provides an automated cleaning system to deliver predictably consistent product and complete process control. The IBS6+ creates both hot and cold beverages at the touch of a button.

"Ten thousand people every day are drinking Coffee Planet coffees through the Concordia coffee and espresso makers in the UAE - with the additional flavour and cold coffee options from the new IBS6+, Coffee Planet continues to lead the market of self-service in premium fresh bean, fresh milk coffee," added Richard Jones.

Matthew Yorke Smith, Operations Director at Coffee Planet said, "Our customers continuously comment on the high quality and consistency of the drinks from Concordia machines. At the same time the amazing speed of the IBS6+ will provide staff increased opportunities to interact with customers and to sell add-ons."

To experience the IBS6+, visit the Coffee Planet stand at the Gulfood 2010, Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre Show from the 21 -24 February in Hall 2, Stand B2.
