Coming Clean And Coming Soon – It’s Karisma From N&W!

Coinadrink’s range of coffee machines is full of star quality – and that’s before we add ‘Karisma’!

Karisma is the new ‘super-automatic’ from N&W, the world’s largest manufacturer of coffee vending machines. N&W is based in northern Italy and much of the company’s success is down to its ability to recreate, in a machine, the subtleties of taste and aroma that characterise the classical Italian espresso experience.

So what makes this machine such a stand-out? It uses fresh milk!

We’ve got a Karisma on test in our workshop right now. You can enjoy all your coffee shop favourites, from a frothy cappuccino to a latte macchiato and everything in between. The quality of the drinks is fantastic, as you’d expect from N&W; but with our customers’ interests at heart, we’re making sure that Karisma is as easy to keep clean, (and healthy), as it is good at making drinks… Continue reading “Coming Clean And Coming Soon – It’s Karisma From N&W!”

To Tick A Box, Or To Save A Life?

Sometimes, qualifying for accreditations, such as OHSAS 18001, can deliver tangible benefits – as Workshop Technician Trudi Beet testifies in the latest of our articles about Coinadrink’s ‘Long Service Club’ members.

What If We Put All Our Small Change In The Same Jar?

angeloAs many of our customers are aware, Coinadrink supports a charity called ‘Just Small Change.’ We have a simple formula: every time somebody buys a bottle of water from one of our bottled water coolers, we donate a percentage. So far we’ve raised £750.

It’s not much, is it? In fact, it’s just small change…

However, as anyone who’s ever collected coins in a jar will know, over time, that ‘small change’ can turn into a substantial sum of money and with that in mind, we thought you might be interested to find out how that money is being used.

Water, Water Everywhere!

… but what’s the best to drink?

 

Living in the UK, you’d be forgiven for thinking that drinking water is the least of our problems…

We take it for granted, don’t we? But water is the main component of the human body. In fact, wrapped up in all that skin and bone, we’re 55 to 78 per cent water, depending on body size. So, it’ll come as no surprise that regular water consumption has numerous health benefits and, as an added plus, it has no calories, no fat; no carbohydrates and no sugar.

The water we consume everyday plays a vital role in maintaining a healthy body. Experts recommend we drink eight to ten glasses of it every day to stay tip-top.
