Italian coffee giant Illycaffé has launched eight drinks vending machines for the office developed by its subsidiary company, Mitaca.
The vending machines all use Illycaffé's blend of 100 premium Arabica coffee packed into Mitaca's ‘professional' capsules to ensure freshness and barista-style quality. As well as coffee varieties, the machines can also dispense teas and herbal options.
The coffee vendors range in size from a compact worktop model to a freestanding unit that can serve 180 drinks before it needs to be refilled. Models M3, M4, M5 (with standalone milk frother) and M6 hold between one and four litres of water while the FAS Perla C6 offers the option of a 20-litre water tank or plumbing into the mains.
They are styled by one of the fathers of Italian design, Rodolfo Bonetto.
The Illycaffé/Mitaca coffee machines are available in the UK exclusively from Euro Food Brands](http://www.eurofoodbrands.co.uk/index.html).
