Apuro (Solihull, West Midlands) is introducing a technologically advanced double milk shaker and frappé machine, which it says is aimed at satisfying demand for increasingly sophisticated drinks in today’s café society.

The Sirio 2VV, suitable for preparing coffees, cocktails, sorbets and frothy frappés, has a three-whisky mixing system. Each independently operated whisky is powered by a 100-watt motor and fits inside a plexiglass jug.

The machine, which has a shiny aluminium finish, is supplied with two easy-to-attach mixing jugs, each fitted with a micro-switch to prevent accidents.
