Marco, a leading European manufacturer of hot water delivery systems, has developed MIX, an advanced multi temperature, volume controlled machine to meet the increasing demands of beverage preparation in the coffee and speciality tea sector.
Available in above and below counter variants, MIX delivers three different programmable temperatures on demand with the added benefit of three independent volumes programmable by the user, while offering Marco’s renowned temperature precision and design aesthetic.
With speciality tea as one of the biggest growth areas in foodservice, cafés are focusing more on their tea menu. More discerning customers require repeatable and precise control in beverage preparation. As Jane Pettigrew of the UK Tea Academy explains: “To get the best out of the leaves, different types of tea need to be brewed in water at different temperatures”.
Above counter, the MIX range is available in tap and push button variants to suit all hot water applications. The interior design and architectural demands on retail and café environments is further met by the undercounter MIX solution with a choice of sleek fonts for either one temperature or three-temperatures. The tap variant also boasts a built-in filter.
Following from the market leading Marco Ecoboiler range, Marco’s MIX also takes a significant step further in energy management. There is now an increased global awareness about energy efficiency which new products need to meet. Unparalleled in terms of energy efficiency, the MIX is 62% more efficient than top brands due to a vacuum insulated system.
In keeping with the sustainable energy efficiency design of MIX, Marco is pleased to be embarking on a partnership with the 20/20 Project, initially focusing on the Nepal Coffee Growing Programme. The programme supports coffee producers and their communities to create sustainable livelihoods via the establishment of commercial coffee nurseries, equipping 300 farmers to grow quality coffee.
Marco is looking forward to supporting a sustainable project that positively impacts the global coffee value chain and ultimately empowers farmers to produce quality coffee, enabling their families to break through the poverty line. The MIX range is available to order now.
