If you read this News section you will be well aware that the brand new style Kenco Singles machine is now available. In conjunction with this Kraft Foods have launched the new Cappuccino milk capsule. When combined with the Carte Noire espresso drinks capsule this allows you to create a more authentic cappuccino through your Kenco Singles machine. Please be aware that if you do combine these two capsules you will need a larger cup as the resulting drink will be approximately 9oz in size. this new product is available to order and will be the same price as the espresso capsule. To place your order please call the office.
We have finally taken delivery of our first batch of the new style Kenco Singles machine. We have them in our warehouse and ready to be delivered. I have to say that they look even better in the flesh than they do in pictures and brochures. They offer all the same benefits of the existing Kenco singles system but with a smaller machine footprint and a much more contemporary look. Later in the year we expect the launch of two new drinks capsules. These will be a cappuccino milk capsule designed to be used with the existing espresso capsule to create a more authentic cappuccino, and a Cadbury chocolate capsule. These will be good additions to the already impressive range of drinks. As soon as these are available I will let you know in
Kenco Singles Brewer 2012
Finally the new Kenco Singles brewer (pictured right) is very nearly here. It has taken longer than we expected for it to be fully launched but we feel that it is worth the wait. We expect to take delivery of the first machines in either the second or third week of June. We would therefore expect to be able to deliver the new machines out in the last week of June 2012. It’s been a long wait but I have to say that we are very impressed with the look of the new machine. As mentioned before in this blog the internal workings are the same as the existing machine so we expect the new system to be just as reliable as the old one. We haven’t had the launch date of the new drinks in the Kenco Singles range but we expect these to follow hot on the heels of the new machine. We are now taking orders for it so if you are interested please give us a call.
I thought that I would post a picture of both of the soon to be released Bolero and Evolution coffee machines with the new Millicano branding. We think that they look great. Please let us know what you think?
Evolution With Kenco Millicano Branding
Bolero With Kenco Millicano Branding
Kraft Foods have now launched Kenco Millicano into the coffee vending machine market. It is suitable for coffee vending machines that use soluble coffee ingredients. In the words of Kraft Foods: “Kenco Millicano Wholebean Instant offers all the benefits of an instant solution with the unmistakable aroma and taste reminiscent of a roast and ground coffee”.
The product is a blend of 15% finely-milled coffee beans and 85% freeze dried soluble coffee which instantly delivers the full bodied mouth feel of a bean to cup coffee. The idea behind it is that we can now offer a bean to cup machine quality of drink but with the lower cost (of both machine and product) and reduced maintenance of a soluble ingredient coffee machine.
Our sales team visited Kraft Foods yesterday to try the drinks for ourselves and we were all very impressed. Kenco Millicano Wholebean Instant is now available from us in 10 x 300g cases. It is suitable for use in a whole raft of soluble ingredient machines, however, wherever you choose to use it please ensure that you use a good quality skimmed milk granule such as Milfresh. It seems to be pointless (to me at least) to offer a great quality of coffee but then deliver it with a cheap low quality whitener that completely ruins the drink experience.
To find out more about this product please give Kenco Local Business Service a call. We would be very happy to discuss this further or arrange a demonstration.
The new Kenco 2Go system is due to be launched a little later in 2012. It is based on the highly popular Kenco Freshseal system, but produces the wide range of hot drinks in a 12oz format rather than the 10oz size. Every cup delivers a consistent quality hot drink. Kenco 2GO makes it easy to serve quality instant hot drinks anywhere you have access to hot water. Each cup contains the perfect measure of product for a variety of favourite drinks, foil-sealed into the base of the cup for maximum freshness. To serve, the foil seal is peeled off and hot water is added… making it quick & easy to serve delicious hot drinks in the shortest time possible.
Kenco 2GO includes a range of high quality, branded hot drinks – from rich roast coffee to refreshing leaf teas. Cups are attractive and durable, with sip lids to keep drinks hot and make them easy to enjoy on the go. The range includes big brands that consumers love – Kenco Millicano, the very first Whole Bean Instant coffee from Kenco and delicious tasting Cadbury Hot Chocolate drink.
Kenco 2Go is ideal for travel locations where convenient hot drinks are needed and venues such as stadiums. For more information please call the office.
If you are one of our customer that is based in London then this is the first (probably in a long line) of requests that you stock up on your consumables before the end of July 2012. The Olympic Games is a very exciting time for London but it will inevitably affect our ability to make deliveries. We are suggesting that you stock up for the whole Olympic Games period if at all possible. This will ensure that you won’t run out of coffee and it will help us in our planning tremendously.
For more information about how the Olympic Games will affect your deliveries from Kenco Local Business Service please call the office.
Kenco Local Business Service are very excited about the launch of the new Belvita Yogurt Crunch later in 2012 (potentially around May time). We were pleasantly surprised by the popularity of the standard Belvita biscuit last year and it has become a firm favourite in the healthier part of our snacks vending range. The new product will feature two Belvita biscuits “glued” together with a yogurt filling.
Belvita is the only biscuit that is specifically designed for breakfast, and as such it is ideal for those who are sometimes too rushed to eat in the mornings. It is clinically proven to regularly release carbohydrates over four hours to keep you going all morning.
For more information on how to get the Belvita range in your office snack vending machine please call the office.
We have had notification that the launch of the new style Kenco Singles machine and the new Kenco singles drink (the cappuccino milk drink capsule) has been delayed by around a month. It is now likely to be available in mid May 2012. The new Cadbury chocolate capsule is still on course for a launch a bit later in the year. We will keep you updated on this news section so please keep visiting us for updates. If you would like to pre order one then please call the office as we are now able to take orders.
New Kenco Singles Machine
We are delighted to be able to bring you the brand new Kenco Singles machine. As you can see the machine shape and size has radically changed. It also has a 25% smaller footprint than the last version as well as the sleeker, more contemporary design.
In addition to the new looks there will be a new cappuccino product launched at the same time as the machine. This capsule is designed to be used in conjunction with the Carte Noire espresso to produce a larger, more authentic cappuccino than is currently available. Later in the year Kraft will also launch a new Cadbury chocolate capsule.
All of this is a real boost to a an already exceptionally reliable and popular system. We can’t wait to start showing it to our customers. For more information or to arrange a demonstration please call the office. We expect the machine to be in stock for the second half of April 2012.
