Foodservice Australia , a dedicated expo for restaurants, caterers and bakers will be held from May 27 to May 29 in Sydney.
This year’s event will feature over 100 exhibitors including several coffee making equipment manufacturers.
Coffee is a big part of the Australian economy with the recent Datamonitor report ‘Hot Drinks in Australia’ estimating coffee sales to reach $1473 million by 2013. While the category is still dominated by in-home consumption, one in seven cups is consumed outside the home with this percentage growing rapidly.
According to Timothy Collett, organiser of Foodservice Australia, for the foodservice industry to capitalise on Australia’s love of coffee, cafes, hotels and restaurants need to be able to cater for an increasing number of sophisticated customers, and do it consistently every day.
Nespresso will be showcasing a new professional coffee machine, the Aguila, which combines the best of traditional coffee making methods with new technology to deliver remarkable in-cup quality for high volume establishments.
The Aguila features four extraction heads and state-of the art milk frothing technology, delivering four made-to-order coffees in less than 20 seconds. The energy-efficient coffee machines save up to 50% more energy than regular professional machines, automatically switching off after 30 minutes of inactivity.
Premium Italian brand Illycaffe will also be demonstrating the Astoria range of espresso machines while Boema will be showing their range of Australian made coffee machines.
Foodservice Australia will be held from Sunday May 27 to Tuesday May 29 at the Royal Hall of Industries, Moore Park in Sydney.
