ZUCHWIL, Switzerland – At the World of Coffee 2019 in Berlin, swiss coffee machine manufacturer Schaerer focuses on the Schaerer ‘Barista’ machine. The high espresso quality, the elegant design – inspired by the classic portafilter machine – and the extremely easy handling make the Schaerer ‘Barista’ ideal for a wide range of applications, from coffee shop chains to owner-run coffee bars or Italian restaurants.
“The espresso machine chimes with the zeitgeist in the industry at the moment. It helps restaurateurs to celebrate barista-style coffee culture – in terms of appearance, technology and skills. At the same time, they can count on exceptionally easy operation and maximum process reliability,” says Sarah Ognibeni, Head of Marketing and Coffee Competence Centre at Schaerer AG.
The Schaerer Barista combines the fundamental principles of a portafilter machine and the skills of a barista with the easy operation and process reliability of a fully automatic coffee machine. The result is the perfect Italian espresso with consistent quality from cup to cup. All the operator has to do is insert the portafilter and touch a beverage button according to the coffee you want.
At the same time, the typical sounds that accompany traditional steps such as knocking out the portafilter or frothing the milk create a sense of Italian flair. If the guest would like a milk-based coffee specialty, perfect milk foam is available manually done or at the touch of a button on the Schaerer Barista display: the Supersteam wand will conjure up milk foam automatically in up to three predefined consistencies and temperatures. In addition, the manual steam nozzle can also be used for traditional frothing.
Playground for baristi
The hybrid technology of the Schaerer espresso machine provides an interesting alternative for professional baristi. The barista can set all of the relevant parameters individually for the desired taste profile in order to get the best out of a particular roast coffee blend.
This profile can then be accessed by anyone to ensure that the coffee specialities are prepared to the same high quality standards by every employee. The two integrated grinders allow you to use different types of bean, with the option of adding extra recipes for beans in external grinders if desired. Thanks to the two steam wands, you can choose between manual milk frothing or automatic preparation via Supersteam.
