BUYERS' GUIDE CAPSULE COFFEE MACHINES STATE OF PLAY For most of us, coffee plays an important role in our day-to-day lives, whether you rely on a full-bodied shot of espresso to get you going in the morning, or regularly catch up with friends over a warming cappuccino. For those who strive for good quality coffee but don’t want the mess or hassle, a coffee pod machine is the perfect solution. Pod machines use vacuum-sealed pods filled with delicious fresh coffee, with one pod making one cup. While all machines offer a range of popular coffee drinks such as espresso, Americano and cappuccino, some machines enable users to purchase coffee pods or capsules in an array of other flavours such as hot chocolate, chai latte and iced tea. The advantages of capsule coffee machines are that it’s an easy way to make coffee – and there are no messy filter holders to clean, no spillage of coffee granules – and the coffee tastes great! MARKET by The Western European market for Single Serve Espresso machines registered some diverse developments. While France and Spain decreased in sales value, Italy and Great Britain grew in double-digits in the last rolling year compared to the previous year. KEY INNOVATIONS TO LOOK FOR AT IFA LET COFFEE COLOUR YOUR LIFE Gone are the days when you had two choices for the colour of a coffee machine: black or metallic. Today’s manufacturers are increasing the colour gamut, in order for users to be able to match the machine to their interior décors, taking into account that the kitchen is increasingly a part of the “living area” of one’s home. Bright colours are therefore hitting the scene in order to mix and match with the glass and gloss finishes of modern kitchens. More elegant solutions can be found with different metallic finishes as well, and for the art deco crowd, watch out for the odd machine with pastel finish. The Lattissima Touch is available in a number of different colours – Glam Red, Glam White, Glam Black, Black Titanium and Palladium Silver. INNOVATING @ IFA TOUCH INTERFACE Touch interfaces are increasingly important on high-end coffee machines where choice can be a question. In these cases, a large, clear LCD display should offer self explanatory and intuitive operation. An automatic specialty coffee machine should guide users through menus and programming with text and images. Interactive navigation should make operation — whether customising a latte macchiato or checking out a maintenance programme — as quick and easy as possible. THE NEW RETRO Retro – or “classic” design is definitely the in thing this year at IFA. With designers inspired by the beautiful, art deco forms of yesteryear, one might imagine being on Miami Beach sipping a coffee with one’s yellow Buick Riviera parked in the street outside. The combination of new tech with retro design is what makes it all very different. For example, the new Nescafé Dolce Gusto Stelia has an unconventional design, but includes intuitive touch screen interface and automatic closing head (replacing the “clamp handle”). +34% SALES UNITS OF SINGLE SERVE COFFEE MACHINES PER COUNTRY IN EU6 FOR MAT 2014 AND 2015 Thousands 3000 -6% +1% 2500 2000 1000 -5% 1500 +34% 500 +4% 0 DE FR ES IT NL GB MAT 14 MAT 15 LATTISSIMA TOUCH BY NESPRESSO The Lattissima Touch has been redesigned to offer even more features for coffee connoisseurs who enjoy coffee with milk. The brand new integrated technology offers two new features of milk froth and the pre-heating times for the coffee is now at 25 second and additional 15 second for milk. Automatic pre-programmed coffee buttons ensure the perfect coffee serving size each time, and an automatic power off mode after 9 minutes allowing for it to be categorized in the A Energy Efficiency Class. » HALL 1.1 / STAND 102 CONTACT Udo Jansen Global Director Small Domestic Appliances GfK Retail and Technology udo.jansen@gfk.com THE FUTURE Capsule coffee machines are increasingly popular and as models come to market with innovative features and sleek designs, its future looks assured. More colour options are expected, while future technologies may include Bluetooth and Wi- Fi functionality, but how popular this would be with consumers remains to be seen. We expect that more capsule machines will have the ability to froth and steam milk, with this technology currently only provided on only expensive models. STELIA BY NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO The brand new Nescafé Dolce Gusto Stelia shines with its unconventional design including intuitive touch screen interface and automatic closing head (replacing the “clamp handle”). Maximum 15 bar pump pressure combined with intelligent capsule technology guarantees high quality drinks – such as Espresso, Café Au Lait, Latte Macchiato and Chai Tea Latte. » HALL 9 / STAND 102 » HALL 1.1 / STAND 102 » HALL 9 / STAND 102 www.ifa-international.org IFA International • Tuesday 8 th September 2015 31
