Nespresso Professional has added new touch-free functionalities to its Nespresso Momento range of professional coffee machines.
Nespresso Professional has implemented three new features to allow the safe operation of Momento machines in environments such as workplaces in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Firstly, the company has launched a remote control solution for all Nespresso Momento machines, where users will be able to control the machine from their mobile phones through an app.
This will enable employees to insert the capsule and then choose their preferred cup size and recipe directly from their phone, without touching the machine.
Another feature is an automatic brewing option, which can be set up on Nespresso Momento machines. This option means coffees will be brewed without users needing to touch the screen, thanks to the Nespresso Momento capsule recognition feature. The machine will recognise inserted capsules and brew the coffee according to the predefined cup size.
Finally, Nespresso Momento machines also now offer a lock-screen option to allow employees to interact with them safely. This lock screen prompts users to disinfect the screen before use, ensuring that the machine is operated hygienically.
Kika Buhrmann, vice-president B2B, at Nespresso USA, said: “The current global pandemic has disrupted many workplaces, with employees and employers looking to adapt to increased safety measures and sanitary precautions while maintaining or recreating social moments with colleagues.
“This is why Nespresso Professional has developed three new options for its Nespresso Momento machine range to enable employees to maintain social interactions around their favourite Nespresso coffee in a safer way.”
