Aimia Foods has launched the Pour Moi Café Express vending concept which provides fresh bean-to-cup Fairtrade coffee, hot chocolate and tea in a contemporary station format, served in fluted 12oz cups with lids. The full suite of beverages on offer on the station’s chalkboard drinks menu includes cappuccino, latte, mocha and americano. All drinks are made using Milfresh skimmed ’skinny’ milk supplied by Aimia Foods.

The company says the station has reduced maintenance and downtime thanks to longer intervals between fill-ups; typically the machine will only need refilling after 48 hours.

In addition, it features a programmable media screen which can feature site notices, advertisements and other public information, and the station can be installed free of charge by Pour Moi distributors nationwide.

A built in management system ensures that drinks sales and the station’s status can be reported in real-time via a web interface, which is helpful in understanding consumption patterns and for remote supervision.
