Quality Coffee at Fantastic Foxholes

Foxholes Farm tearoom learns the art of coffee from Caffeine Ltd

Foxholes' Catherine Smith with the Schaerer Coffee Art machine from Caffeine LimitedWith the UK’s love of espresso showing no sign of slowing down, more businesses are looking to add high quality coffee to their menus. But quality is the key. One of the biggest barriers to this has been the requirement for skilled baristas to make the more technique-heavy types of quality coffee, such as cappuccinos and lattes. Most push-button coffee machines simply don’t match up.

Caffeine Ltd, UK distributors of Schaerer coffee machines, has the solution in the form of the Coffee Art system, a bean-to-cup espresso machine capable of making a variety of coffee drinks without requiring any specialist training.

Espresso Hygiene: Schaerer solves the milk system cleaning issue

Caffeine says radical, eco-friendly disposable system is a ‘game-changer’

SONY DSCFresh milk is the best thing for taste and foam texture in espresso-based drinks. On the other hand, it’s amongst the worst when it comes to hygiene. Until now, bean-to-cup coffee machines that incorporate a fresh milk system have been a real challenge for staff when it comes to cleaning. Milk can clog pipes creating odours and bacteria, and it requires expensive, powerful and unpleasant chemicals for thorough cleaning.

Now Caffeine has launched a new milk system, the NC (no-clean) Foamer, developed by Schaerer, which is eco-friendly and needs no nasty chemicals. In fact, it’s also cheaper than a single dose of the chemicals used to clean a traditional system.
