I had the good fortune of attending the National Restaurant Show in Chicago recently. We exhibited there and were really happy to be able to introduce the Gaggia line of commercial espresso machines. I am very impressed by and have been able to make some amazing drinks using these beautiful and powerful machines. We also featured the Ceado grinders at our booth. Ceado grinders are the quietest in the industry. Ceado has the only full line of NSF approved grinders on the market. NSF safety and sanitary standards that are very strict and in order to qualify for certification, companies must pay to have their equipment thoroughly tested.
One of the great things about having some good coffee, great machines and a little skill is you can make some pretty impressive drinks. At the trade show, our booth became quickly known as a place to get a great espresso or a wonderful latte. We got to make drinks for and talk business with a lot of potential customers in the restaurant industry. One of the things I found interesting was how much people actually knew about coffee and even more surprising was the awareness and fondness for a good-tasting, well-made espresso. People were really curious about the espresso and why it was so good and smooth; which naturally lead to discussions about the importance of having a good espresso machine and grinder.
The new Gaggia Deco espresso machine was a point of great interest for many of the visitors to our booth. It is absolutely beautiful and showcases a neat blue backlit piece set against the vibrant red of the machine. We feel very strongly that the Deco should be a centerpiece of any restaurant or cafe looking to make great espresso and specialty drinks. Along with an eye-catching design, this semi-automatic machine also features advanced technology to take it from a showpiece to a real, well-functioning machine. It has some great programming to give users control over the espresso. For instance, the heated group heads really help with temperature stability to result in smooth, well-extracted espresso.
Also, people who have some familiarity with grinders were impressed with the Ceado line, as the equipment was quiet, well engineered and was easy to operate. I think these grinders will be very well known someday and we are certainly doing our part to make that happen.
It was nice talking with all the restaurant people, it seems they have a lot of passion for their business and are always looking for that next great item. I really enjoyed listening and talking with everyone and was very proud to introduce the Gaggia and Ceado lines.
