We are extremely excited to announce that our Cafétouch 3700 commercial coffee machine has been installed in The View from The Shard, the iconic glass building in London – making it the highest coffee machine in Western Europe at 800 feet high!
Coffee consumption and touchscreen tablet technology are two staples of modern life so the revolutionary Cafétouch, exclusive to Liquidline, was the perfect machine for the job, and The View from The Shard agreed, “Liquidline provided excellent service and efficiency; they also helped choose a machine which reflected our brand. We are very pleased and would always be happy to recommend them as a company. The feedback from the coffee has been excellent and overall we are very pleased.”
The installation took place on 23 February and the machine is now located on floor 68 alongside the champagne bar, so be there between 10am and 12pm if you want to try some wonderful coffee! This next generation coffee machine has cutting edge touchscreen technology, 15 drink selections, Wi-Fi internet access and the ability to play custom videos –The View from The Shard’s own PR video is playing, so it really is worth seeing in action.
The Shard, designed by Italian architect Renzo Piano, is 1,016ft high making it the tallest building in Europe. The building reached its top height on 19 June and the area of the glass façade is 56,000 sq metres which equals eight football pitches! With the Cafétouch also being of Italian deisgn, it is a perfect match!
The viewing platform was officially opened by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, on 1 February 2013 and within the first year, The View from The Shard reported that one million people visited the attraction. It has fast become an architecturally striking vertical living city – and now Liquidline’s ‘Cafétouch’ is in-situ.
Brendan Pooley, Marketing Manager at Liquidline, said, “We are delighted to be a part of The View from The Shard. This product isexclusive to Liquidline and can only be ordered through us. It goes without saying that we are incredibly proud to be the sole distributors of the Cafétouch and it is great to let people see and enjoy this machine and sample the mouth-watering quality of drinks in not only one of London’s most iconic buildings but the 3rd tallest building in Europe!”
