Are you a next generation barista? Find out at Caffe Culture
A highlight of Cimbali at Caffe Culture is the new M100 traditional espresso machine which is aimed at the next generation barista who is eager to push boundaries in order to meet the demands of the fourth wave coffee aficionado.
Whilst the amount of pressure applied and the point at which it is applied during the brewing cycle will have a direct impact on the texture, flavour and tactile sensations of the finished drink, the use of pressure to exploit the characteristics of the coffee has been the preserve of the skilled barista – up until now. For the M100 features an integral pressure profiling system which in effect gives the barista direct control of the pressure at any point during the extraction process. “Moving away from a fixed 9 bar pressure and allowing the barista scope to experiment opens up infinite possibilities in terms of the in-cup experience.” Says Matthew Tuffee, sales and marketing manager, Cimbali.
“A barista who has a real passion for his job and a desire to exceed customer expectations will really appreciate the M100. The ability to highlight flavour characteristics, balance sweetness and acidity, adjust mouth feel and body, experiment with signature drinks and generally prepare the coffee exactly as he wishes will take the speciality menu to the next level. And it is this upward trend in consumer expectation and quality that is driving the market. The M100 allows the barista to meet the fourth wave head on.”
The M100 just oozes quality and craftsmanship, and makes a very strong design statement, taking many styling cues from the automotive industry. Available in a choice of steel and polished aluminium; steel and matt black and steel and glossy white, the M100 will create a stunning focal point in any environment.
Also on show will be Cimbali’s bestselling M39 traditional espresso machine. The M39 TE features additional energy savings plus a new advanced Turbosteam Milk4, a temperature sensing steam wand system that simultaneously delivers steam and air, thereby allowing the hands free heating or frothing of large amounts of milk without manual intervention. When the milk reaches the programmed temperature the delivery of milk and steam stops automatically, creating perfectly frothed milk with a consistent taste and texture. “Turbosteam Milk4 is like having another pair of hands working the machine, it’s a real benefit at peak times.” Says Matt.
The M39 TE can be used in conjunction with Cimbali’s wireless Magnum On Demand Grinder when it becomes a ‘dream team’ system which adjusts the coffee grind according to pre-set parameters through the working day, guaranteeing a consistent in cup quality irrespective of the skills of the barista.
The M24 Plus, Cimbali’s entry level traditional machine is a compact system with push button panels and LEDS which means it is very simple to use. The M24 will be on demo with coffee pods demonstrating just how easy it is to make the perfect espresso time after time.
“Our new S54 superautomatic machine has been updated to feature a self adjusting grinder. Just for a bit of fun for the Show, we will be showcasing the S54 with a Perspex front so that visitors can see the inner workings of the machine whilst it is making a coffee. This will demonstrate the sophistication of how the superautomatic delivers outstanding quality at such high speed, something few will have seen before” Concludes Matt.
