Hot drink solution specialist eXpresso PLUS has launched a new Lavazza Prontissimo coffee-to-go range, offering premium coffee in an instant solution. 

The company has been working in partnership with Lavazza for more than three years serving premium bean-to-cup coffee. Prontissimo is Lavazza’s first microground coffee, a Columbian Arabica blend with 10% finely grounded roasted coffee beans.

Andrew Smith, OCS and vending development manager at Lavazza, said “We’re pleased to be launching the new range of Prontissimo solutions in partnership with eXpresso PLUS. We’ve been working with them for a long time and so have no doubt that between their first class service and our authentic Italian coffee, the Prontissimo range will be a great success”.

The Prontissimo solutions includes seven ranges; the Pisa and Modena solutions offer a coffee shop experience with the complete hot drinks menu while the Siena 4 and 5 ranges present an alternative coffee experience for those with limited space. The Taranto range comes as a table top or as a compact footprint unit and the Turin range is ideal for bulk brewing, dispensing five litres in just one minute. Finally the Verona satisfies the tastes of the most demanding palettes with its outstanding consistency.

All of these solutions are suitable for almost any environment including forecourts and convenience outlets. 

Manish Shah at eXpresso PLUS commented: “The new range of Prontissimo coffee-to-go solutions offer clients a quality alternative to bean-to-cup machines. As the coffee has a shelf-life of 24 months, re-stocking the machine is minimalised, making the maintenance easy and guaranteeing the quality in the cup. As with most of our machines, all Prontissimo solutions are under 1m, meaning that minimal space is required.

"The latest range, exclusively from eXpresso PLUS, gives businesses an opportunity to add value to their service, differentiate from competitors and create a new revenue stream. Furthermore, eXpresso PLUS will provide ongoing training and marketing support where needed to ensure companies receive the best from their machine."

For every sale from the Prontissimo range, eXpresso PLUS will donate £50 to the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), its nominated charity.
