CHICAGO, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Nespresso, the worldwide reference in single-serve coffee, will unveil its newest machine innovation for U.S. professional customers – the Aguila – on Saturday, May 18, at the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, IL. Aguila is a collaboration between Nespresso and Thermoplan AG, a leader in state of the art milk systems since 1974, providing the finest quality coffee beverages for Nespresso's business-to-business customers across the world.
Combining exceptional functionality with an ultra-chic aesthetic, Aguila is equipped with top-of-the-line technological features including four extraction heads for simultaneous and fast beverage preparation during peak hours; three programmable cup sizes; and two spacious high capacity cup heaters. True to the Nespresso philosophy, Aguila allows baristas, bartenders, and hotel service members to prepare hot and cold milk and milk foam as well as Espressos, Espresso Macchiatos, Cappuccinos, and Lattes at the single touch of a button.
Other notable features include a network connection via SIM card, enabling online tracking of the machine's maintenance needs, and an energy saving mode after 30 minutes of non-usage.
"Following a successful launch in Europe, we're thrilled to bring Aguila's smart technology and design to our U.S. customers," said Maarten Dekker, Vice President, B2B, Nespresso North America. "As American consumers continue to trend toward premium coffee experiences at home, they are increasingly seeking this same type of experience outside the home, whether it be at the office, a fine dining establishment or a hotel. Aguila provides our professional partners with the highest quality coffee, convenience and service that discerning consumers have now come to expect of their coffee experiences."
As with all Nespresso machines, Aguila users receive the renowned coffee expertise and exceptional customer service that Nespresso is known for. Nespresso provides the highest quality coffee, innovation and service to more than 650 Michelin-starred, or equivalent, restaurants, 15 international luxury hotel chains, 25 major airlines and over 5,000 business jets.
