A COMPANY importing coffee making machines has brewed up a new deal.

Huddersfield-based espresso machine supplier Dalla Corte is supplying its range of “intelligent” espresso coffee grinders to independent coffee house chain Caffe Latino.

The machines, boasting the world’s first automatically-controlled grinding system will be installed at all four Caffe Latino outlets.

Caffe Latino has coffee shops at New Street, Huddersfield and in Leeds, Harrogate and Sheffield.

In addition, 12 new Caffe Latino franchises are scheduled tol open in the next 12 months across the UK – from Maidstone in Kent to Manchester.

And they will all be required to use the new equipment under the agreement.

Caffe Latino has invested more than £20,000 in Dalla Corte technology for its sites.

Caffe Latino founders Mark Kiaie and Keith Whitehouse said: “We want our outlets to serve superior coffee all the time and know that Dalla Corte can help us achieve that.

“The machine is a great piece of technology that overcomes the problem of inconsistent grind quality which most baristas face.”

David Cooper, managing director of Dalla Corte (UK Imports) and Bradley-based coffee wholesaler, Cooper’s Coffee, said: “We’re excited that Caffe Latino has chosen Dalla Corte’s grinder for all of its coffee shops.

“Through innovative technology that has been years in development, Dalla Corte has solved the big problem of inconsistent espresso quality and taste.”
