Creating the Best Coffee Experience in Foodservice

For any foodservice provider, no matter the size or location of the venue, providing a catering service that is tailored to the client's needs is essential. A vital ingredient in any meal or refreshment provision is the coffee. Not only should the beverage be of a standard that is acceptable to a discerning clientele, but in busy locations, speed of service can be essential.

With over 95 million cups of coffee consumed in the UK every day, the nation’s coffee drinkers expect their cappuccino, latte or espresso to be of the same standard as the drink they purchase on the high street. For any contract caterer looking to achieve a combination of drink quality, speed of service, and machine reliability, this can be a fine balancing act. However, when you add a Gaggia Milano coffee machine to your service, you can have all of this, with the added advantage that your countertop will be graced by a great looking machine.

Gaggia’s range of professional coffee machines encompasses both traditional espresso machines and fully automatic, bean to cup machines. So what does this mean in practice?

The latest bean to cup machines are equipped with technology that creates creamy cappuccinos, luxurious lattes and perfectly balanced americanos, that closely resemble a hand crafted drink. Take La Radiosa from Gaggia Milano – with its state-of-the-art milk foaming technology and capable of serving up to 250 drinks per day. It’s perfect for busy sites. At the smaller end of the spectrum, La Brillante is the latest addition to the Gaggia range – perfect for lower volume sites.

Gaggia’s traditional espresso machines take an influence from the historic designs of the twentieth century but with a thoroughly modern twist. Suitable for cafes, restaurants, corporate fine dining and more, Gaggia’s machines are intuitive and for baristas to use as well as offering a strong design statement.

There are many factors that influence your choice of machine. However, what is guaranteed is that choosing a Gaggia gives you all the tools you need to provide an excellent coffee experience to your clients. For more information on the full Gaggia range, please visit
