A new espresso machine from La Spaziale is available through Café du Monde.

The ’Special’, manufactured in Italy, is a fully automatic machine, operated by a push-button. It comes with two frothers as standard and is available in two sizes - the 2-group machine (10-litre capacity) and the 3-group machine (15-litre capacity). "The strength of the euro has made life difficult for customers looking to start a coffee service or to re-equip. The ’Special’ is a basic machine with none of the ’bells and whistles’ associated with top-end machines," said Mike Osborne, sales director of Café du Monde. "That said, it is manufactured in Italy to La Spaziale’s usual high standards."

Lease deals are also available from the company. The £23.71 per week package includes the 2-group machine and a start-up package, which includes grinder, knock-out drawer, water softener, installation, staff training and a full 12-months parts and labour warranty.
