Coffee break with tradition from Taylor UK and La Cimbali

Powerful espresso machine combines traditional technique and modern technology

Taylor UK is now supplying the M26 TE espresso machine from La Cimbali. The M26 is a traditional espresso machine that features the latest technology, creating high quality coffee while being easy to use and maintain.

The M26 has been designed to make the barista’s life as simple as possible. Constructed from stainless steel and ABS, it features an attractive, ergonomic design with an electromechanical backlit control panel, angled filter holders and long steam wands. A range of different coffee drinks can be dispensed at the touch of a single button.

To guarantee perfect ground coffee every time, the PGS (Perfect Grinding System) automatically monitors and adjusts the grinding action to produce precisely defined results every time.

Three models of the M26 are available. The DT1 is a single cup unit, while the DT2 can produce two cups. Meanwhile the DT2 Compact is ideal for smaller locations that need more output capacity, being able to produce two cups in a smaller footprint.

Both the DT1 and DT2 feature the Milk4 steam wand, which can automatically heat up and froth milk. This is a newly designed system that enables operators to program four different recipes, allowing the temperature and frothing level of the milk to be set according to requirements.

The DT2 also has an additional manual steam wand. Both the DT1 and DT2 feature a cup warmer with three heat settings.

The DT2 Compact includes the same powerful grinding, filtering and water heating technology as the two full size units, but to help reduce its footprint does not include the cup warmer feature, and instead of a Milk4 wand has one manual steam wand and a Turbosteam wand with two settings.

Both the DT1 and the DT2 Compact can be run off a standard 13 Amp power supply, while the DT2 requires a 32 Amp connection. All three models are 548mm high and 528mm deep, with the DT1 being 450mm wide, the DT2 794mm wide and the DT2 compact 594mm wide.

“La Cimbali has nearly a century’s experience making coffee machines and its reputation is second to none,” says David Rees, marketing manager of Taylor UK. “The M26 is the perfect combination of traditional techniques with modern technology, and it’s perfect for businesses who want the authentic espresso experience with needing specialist training to create it.”
