Carpigiani Showcases Coffee and Gelato at NAFEM
Carpigiani will showcase its new coffee shop and frozen dessert business concept at the NAFEM Show, Feb. 19-21, at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Carpigiani will offer frozen drinks, coffee, hot chocolate, and frozen desserts to highlight its versatile line of products applicable in coffee bars, restaurants, quick serve restaurants, and beyond.
"This concept illustrates the potential of enhanced incremental revenue coffee shops can realize while requiring only minimal investment and gaining rapid ROI by simply adding gelato, ice cream, frozen drinks, flavored whipped cream, and thick original Italian hot chocolate to their menu that many international markets reap the benefits of today," says John Babila, president of Carpigiani USA.
Carpigiani will display the Softybar, which produces soft serve ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt parfaits, affogato (vanilla gelato topped with hot espresso), and sorbet. Softybar offers fast cleaning, low maintenance and fast ROI through compact design, fewer parts and less labor, making it ideal for coffee shop applications.
The Chocolady will offer Italian style hot chocolate in Carpigiani's Coffee Kiosk. This machine uses bain-marie heating to prevent chocolate from burning and continuous stirring of the product to maintain a smooth consistency. It also features a thermostat for adjusting temperature, special anti-clogging spigot, stainless steel boiler and a new product bowl that can be removed quickly to cut down on cleaning time and ensure consistent quality.
Carpigiani's slush dispenser, Spin Twist, will also be on display. This simple, sleek dispenser can deliver two-flavor frozen drinks and cocktails in a glass either side by side or in a twist.
Carpigiani will also display the Kwik Whipper, which is used to top coffee drinks, hot chocolate, smoothies, and pastries with freshly whipped cream made using air that can also be flavored and density-controlled, lasting four times longer than can products. The KW50 can cut whipped topping costs by up to 40 percent and produces up to 30 gallons of finished product per hour.
"We at Carpigiani are pleased to be able to offer new revenue channels, business opportunities and incremental growth to our customers through Carpigiani technology, enhancing both the excitement of their brand while simultaneously contributing positive impact to their bottom line," Babila says.
