MILAN (Italy)- Finally, the horeca operators will meet again, face to face and in complete safety. Hos tMilano will bring the international catering and hospitality community back together again. Among the great protagonists in this restart of the horeca world is Evoca Group, which, with its stable of iconic brands, offers a range of solutions for the professional market that is both innovative and comprehensive.
Let’s start with the latest addition to the GAGGIA MILANO family. The star of HostMilano will undoubtedly be the super-automatic La Solare. It has already won a SMART Label, the award assigned by HOST Milano, in collaboration with POLI.design and ADI., to recognize the most innovative products and technologies in the horeca. sector.
Alongside the super-automatic proposal, sits a traditional model, La Decisa, flagship of the project “Gaggia per l’Italia”. Now in a new Total White livery, and with the On Demand G10 coffee grinder, La Decisa has been relaunched in an unprecedented evo version, which stands out for its integrated Bluetooth connection and its DCS system, a guarantee of even more precise and constant grinding over time.
There are two major innovations available from 2022: the first is La Dea, a new and refined one group model which, thanks to the precociousness of its design, seems to flirt with the barista and his desire to play with coffee. Made in a double version, each with technical features able to fully satisfy the specific requests and needs of the barista, La Dea reflects the reliability of technologies and professional components that we find with La Reale and La Giusta. And then there is the G5 coffee grinder, a model available in four different colours – copper, black, white and grey. Its combination of compact dimensions and high-profile performance is its greatest strength.
With Magic comes an important evolutionary step in development of SAECO. A family of coffee machines that offers advanced performance, combined with cutting-edge technical features and a new design, the Saeco is perfect for offices and small catering establishments. The 7 ” color touchscreen ensures easy navigation through the menus, which include a wide range of customisable drinks, from flat white to double cappuccino. However, the real novelty is in the heart of Magic, where a professional variable chamber coffee group beats with a capacity from 8.5 to 15 g: the adjustment of the amount of coffee powder can be managed automatically from the machine menu. The unit is combined with conical steel grinds, which are also adjustable to achieve the desired degree of grinding. The coffee, milk and water canisters, enclosed in a single block, allow the use of different glasses and cups thanks to the ability to adjust the height, (from 75 to 160 mm), and having the dispenser exactly in the position of the chosen drink. Magic is also equipped with a new milk frothing system, integrated into the coffee dispenser, which provides an extremely quiet cappuccino maker that can not only emulsify creamy foam, but also prepare drinks with simple hot milk. The milk circuit is equipped with a patented cleaning system that always guarantees optimal conditions of use for each single preparation.
NECTA HO.RE.CA. strongly relies on Kalea Plus, the ideal solution for medium to large-sized facilities, capable of dispensing 200 drinks a day and serving up to 90 espresso coffees and 80 cappuccinos in one hour. The super-automatic Krea Touch is both elegant and functional, and represents the most effective response to the needs of the hotel and hospitality sector.
NEWIS, the Evoca division for payments and digital solutions, launches Coffeed, the new cloud telemetry platform for Gaggia and Necta branded super-automatic models, which allows Ho.Re.Ca. operators to monitor the parameters of the machines and the quality in the cup remotely, significantly reducing management costs. Another important innovation presented is the AmiClo platform, the bi-directional tool that allows you to manage beverage recipes, playlists, software and logo updates remotely, which is now available for the horeca segment.
And don’t forget Coffee APPeal and Breasy, the mobile apps that allow drinks selection from a smartphone, in a safe and completely touchless way.
Some prominent innovations presented also in the VENDING sector.
For automatic coffee machines, NECTA offers a preview of Brio Touch, the elegant digital evolution of one of the brand’s best sellers. Brio Touch combines the best coffee extractions technologies with up-to-the-minute electronic performance to create a table top machine that can satisfy everyone’s tastes and needs.
And always under NECTA brand, Twist is here, the new solution for the Impulse range, that combines the best of energy efficiency, technological performance and versatility. Twist obtained C energy class thanks to a series of green innovations including the adoption of a cold unit with R290 gas. The machine delivers energy savings of up to 71% compared to its predecessor in the Necta range! Additional interesting features such as extreme versatility in layout, greater internal brightness (+ 35%), a colour screen (TFT Colour Display) and a wider delivery area, make this model one of the best choices in a higher performing, increasingly environmentally aware Vending sector.
In the world of Vending, two more models should also be mentioned: the Wittenborg 9100 HT, a new high-productivity table-top model and the Ducale City 300, a table top of distinctive design and compact dimensions. The Ducale City 300 boasts all the technical innovations previously available only in those Ducale vending machines that were designed for locations with large volumes of consumption.
All these innovations and more will be on show at Host 2021 on the Evoca booth. We’re looking forward to seeing you at Hall 22, Stand G28 K37.
