95 million cups of coffee every day is an enormous figure! Whether served as a mid-morning pick-me-up, an indulgent afternoon treat or an after dinner drink to complete a meal – there’s a huge opportunity for pubs to meet the UK’s growing demand for good coffee.
One of the biggest concerns for pubs who want to serve great coffee is how to achieve this if you don’t have fully trained baristas in your team. Well, with La Radiosa – Gaggia Milano’s fully automatic coffee machine, you can serve luxurious lattes and creamy cappuccinos simply at the press of a button. And as you gear up for the summer season, this machine will also help you keep up with the latest big trend – iced coffee.
And if you prefer the art and theatre of hand-crafted drinks, Gaggia have an extensive range of professional espresso machines to suit every environment and budget.
So, as you make plans for the bumper Jubilee weekend, make sure you don’t overlook the coffee. Give us a call on 01902 355000 to find out which is the perfect coffee machine for you.
