Canto Touch proves to be a big hit

The Canto Touch office coffee vending machine has proven to be very successful in one of our larger corporate customers.  Most importantly the Canto Touch produces a great range of quality coffee ranging from cappuccino, latte through to espresso and americano.  Non coffee drinks such as tea and hot chocolate are also available.

Obviously the quality of the drinks is the most important aspect of the machine but there are some very novel new aspects too.  The large high definition screen allows for video, animation and still images to be displayed.  This allows for corporate messages to be disseminated whether that is to staff or customers.  One of our large customers that have taken these machines is an insurance company who are currently running a television advertising campaign.  We have been able to upload their advert to the machine which is great for impressing visitors!  Standard features also include a disabled user feature which allows a wheelchair user to drop the drinks icons further down the screen making all options more accessible.  Language icons also allow for all of the drinks to be displayed in a variety of languages making the Canto ideal for environments where the first language of staff or customers isn’t English.

Believe it or not the touch screen can also affect the quality of the drink! It does this by allowing the user to customise their own drink.  Coffee strength along with amount of sugar and milk are all adjustable when you choose your drink.  More than any other coffee machine that we supply this allows you to adjust the drink to your own tastes.

The Canto Touch really is the next step in the evolution of the coffee vending machine.  There are other touch screen systems on the market but none offer the diverse options and functionality of the Canto. The Canto is available to buy, lease or rent.  We can even operate the machine for you meaning that we visit your premises to keep the machine filled and cleaned.  Not only is the Canto packed with up to the minute technology but we can take all of the hassle away from you.

New Jura office coffee machine coming soon!

Kenco Local Business Service are delighted to announce the upcoming arrival of the GIGA X3 office coffee machine.  The smaller brother of the Jura GIGA X7, X8 and X9 coffee machines the GIGA X3 looks as if it will offer many of the drinks options as the larger machines but at a reduced cost.  For a sneak peak have a look at the Jura website.

The stylish and innovative Jura GIGA range of equipment are all ideal as office coffee machines for the more discerning customer.  They offer outstanding quality coffee (particularly when used in conjunction with the new Carte Noire Professional bean) including cappuccinos, lattes, espresso, americano and the ability to produce two drinks at a time as well as steamed or frothed milk.  They are easy to use and remarkably straightforward to clean given that they all use fresh milk.  Typically fresh milk systems are more problematic to maintain but the intuitive TFT screen on the GIGA range walk the user through the cleaning cycles making the process as easy as possible.  All the drinks are also easily customized both in terms of strength and size in order to suit the customers requirements.  The thermal-block heating systems used in these machines allow for almost instantaneous heating and recovery times between drinks.

Flexible term rental or purchase deals are available on all of this equipment.  Full service cover is always included as is delivery, installation and staff training.  A wide range of optional extras including milk fridges, cup warmers, trolleys, disposable cups and crockery are all available to complete the offering from these stylish coffee makers.

Repair service for Kenco coffee machines

There are many thousands of Kenco coffee vending machines out in the UK workplace today.  Many are older machines that were originally supplied by Kraft Foods and are now not supported by any service cover.  If you have an older Kenco machine, be it a Kenco Singles brewer or in cup system, we can offer either ad hoc service support as and when faults arise or an all inclusive service package covering both parts and labour for any breakdowns that may occur.  A fully trained and highly experienced team of technicians with many years of experience is available for repairing this type of equipment and the repairs are not as expensive as one might think.

Full refurbishment is also available for older equipment if you would like a bit of a face lift for an old Kenco Singles machine.  This equipment is very well manufactured and with a bit of TLC will give you many years of service and mean that you can avoid the expense of purchasing or hiring a new piece of equipment.  In this instance the front door can be replaced, the hot tank descaled and the rubber and plastic parts replaced.  Once the machine is fully tested the refurbishment is complete and the Kenco Singles machine should continue to work well for a number of years to come.

Water filtration is very important in London and towns nearby such as High Wycombe and Aylesbury as the hard water leads to a lot of limescale build up in coffee equipment.  Our range of water filters will help to minimize this problem and in doing so give you both a more reliable machine and better drink quality.

Repairs are almost always a cheaper option than sourcing new equipment and in many cases there is no reason why they won’t allow a coffee machine to run for many more years.  For more information or to book a technician call the office on 0845 061 1122.

Vending Machine Operators & Online Suppliers – is there a difference?

In a word – yes! Nowadays a quick internet search will reveal a very large number of companies that can supply your business with its refreshment requirements. That said a sizeable number of them are simply geared up to take product orders and ship them out to you. That’s it, nothing more, nothing less. This is what I refer to as an Online Supplier. If you need a machine or you need a fault fixed I’m afraid you’re stuck!
Vending Operators are a different breed entirely. A true vending operator works with you on many levels to ensure you have a total solution bespoke to your specific needs.
This starts with the human touch. Every customer has its own dedicated account manager who will walk you through the process of selecting the right system for you and will be your contact for the duration of your business relationship together: your go to person for any queries you may wish to discuss.
The true vending operator will be able to supply a large range of vending equipment from the latest innovations in bean 2 cup coffee machines to traditional snacks and cold drinks machines. Where required they should even be able to provide a fully managed service if this is needed – cleaning/filling the machines, reconciling cash and of course providing a full warranty package for parts, labour and engineer visits using their own in house highly qualified engineering staff.
The engineering team is also on hand to help with any technical enquiries like installation help and training on the use and general day to day maintenance to keep your vending machine in tip top condition.
All companies change, be that their size, their location or their refreshment tastes. Vending operators are acutely aware of the need to be able to support their customers ever changing requirements and provide suitable support. This may be simply providing a larger machine or upgrading to a bean 2 cup coffee machine from a traditional instant ingredient one; but it may also be to assist with a move to newer premises.
So there is a lot more to vending than just shipping boxes of coffee! Food for thought the next time you are looking for a vending partner.
