The hot water and coffee brewing systems manufacturer responds to customer demand with new innovations
Marco Beverage Systems, a global leader in manufacturing hot water and coffee brewing systems, has announced the release of new FRIIA after their first venture into the cold-water space was launched with the FRIIA Hot Cold Sparkling launch in 2019.
Following this launch, demand grew for an extension to the FRIIA range to include cold or cold/sparkling only variants. In addition to this the growing use of personal water bottles meant that a higher font was required to meet consumer demand.
As Covid-19 hit during development of the new FRIIA range, and businesses began to adapt to new safety/hygiene requirements, the need for a hands-free variant also became apparent.
Introducing the new FRIIA range:
- Cold only (two font heights = 9 and 12 inch)
- Cold/sparkling (two font heights = 9 and 12 inch)
- Hot/cold (one font height = 9 inch)
- Cold only hands-free (one font height = 12 inch)
The original FRIIA Hot/Cold/Sparkling is also still available.
FRIIA meets the increasing demand for fresh, healthy beverage choice, particularly in transport hubs corporate spaces and retail.
The compact, modular undercounter system incorporates a water chiller and, in the hot/cold variants, an award-winning MIX water boiler. The undercounter chiller incorporates aluminium block technology to chill incoming water by an average of 10˚ and the boiler contains a vacuum insulated tank to ensure temperature accuracy and energy-efficiency. FRIIA is also 23% more energy-efficient than leading competitors.
The updated designs remain in keeping with Marco’s established position as a leader in design and space-saving innovations. The latest fonts still have a sleek, brushed metal finish and premium LED feature, while continuing to deliver the classic clean, uncluttered, minimal counter aesthetic.
The hands-free variant will eliminate any hygiene concerns as it completely removes the single customer touch-point
The new FRIIA fonts are available now, with Hands-free available early 2021.
