Nestlé Foodservices (Croydon) is introducing the Nescafé Accolade Platinum Colibri, a table-top vending unit that dispenses latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate and other premium speciality drinks.

The company claims the machine will help caterers meet consumer demand for hot beverages. The Colibri is a smaller version of the Nescafé Accolade vending machine and enables sites that require a smaller volume of drinks or a more compact system to offer a range of hot beverages in a 9oz paper cup.

According to the company, the machine eliminates the need for milk cartons, wet tea bags and other drinks-making paraphernalia. The table-top unit can be used with a water tank and pump kit in unplumbed site.
