Coffee Nation launches chip and pin Express coffee bar

Coffee Nation Express is a chip and pin, self-service coffee bar that has been developed to provide any high-footfall environment with a branded coffee offer and a potential shared revenue stream in excess of £150,000 per year.

Delivering authentic espresso, cappuccino, latte, hot chocolate and mocha drinks, the machine also has a range of flavour syrups including vanilla, caramel and hazelnut, enabling operators to customise their own drinks.

The Express has an intuitive ‘touch screen’ for menu selection as well as a chip & pin payment device that accommodates all major debit and credit cards as well as notes and coins. The company’s ‘Brand Guardians’ visit each concession on a regular basis to train staff, replenish stock and audit for cleanliness, drink quality and machine maintenance.

“We have been developing the Express for some time with high footfall environments in mind,” said Scott Martin, CEO, Coffee Nation. “We offer the gourmet products that are familiar to us from high street chains, but deliver it in a format that is consistent and more convenient for our target partners.”
