Ringtons upgrades hot bevs across CNTW NHS Trust estate

11 July, 2022

Ringtons has helped NTW Solutions Limited a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust transform the hot beverage offer across the estate following a Beverages for Business review. 

Working closely with NTW Solutions, who provide estates, facilities, car leasing, finance, workforce and procurement services to the Trust, Ringtons focused on the challenges facing the business namely fluctuations in demand, customer expectations (meeting the needs of patients, staff and visitors), dietary requirements, value for money and eco-credentials, to determine the most appropriate solution.  

Cimbali award winning S Series

Ringtons specified, supplied and installed La Cimbali award-winning S30 and S20 Series fully automatic bean-to-cup coffee machines into 6 of the Trust’s on-site Cafes. 

The Cimbali S Series uses fresh coffee beans and fresh milk to deliver barista-quality drinks at speed. Advanced technologies optimise the brewing process whilst delivering perfectly foamed milk to a consistent standard. 

With the machines operating as ‘self-serve,’ queue times are kept to a minimum and the whole coffee experience has been elevated. 

The menu has been upgraded by adding a more comprehensive range of specialty drinks and switching to Ringtons Dark Roast Coffee beans and a range of tag and envelope teas supported by POS materials. A re-usable cup scheme will also be introduced in the near future in support of the Trust’s ‘green plan.’ 

“Investing in the right machines”

“The review with Ringtons has been incredibly useful,” said Tony Wealleans, Facilities Manager – Central Sector and Catering Lead for the organization. “Once we got the basics in place by investing in the right machines and opted for a better quality of coffee and tea then it became so much easier to deliver great-tasting beverages.” 

“On a separate note, we feel it is important to support the regional economy and for that reason have been delighted to partner with Ringtons for this project, a local coffee roaster with an impressive brand heritage.
