As always, the Specialty Coffee Expo proved to be one of the most significant events in the coffee industry this year. It provided a platform for coffee professionals from all over the world to display their innovative products and services, as well as network with industry experts. With over 450 exhibitors participating, the atmosphere was exhilarating and competitive.
Our gratitude goes out to Team Artpresso, our family and friends, for their unwavering support and assistance in setting up, breaking down, and working with customers who stopped by our booth to ask questions. Preparing for a show of this magnitude is no small feat, but with their help, we were able to tackle the challenges and deliver a successful presentation of our products.
At Expo we introduced our upgraded cleaning tools, the Artpresso 58mm Group Head Pro Cleaning Tool and Drain Tray Pro Cleaning Tool. These tools are the ultimate duo for busy cafes and home espresso enthusiasts who demand perfection in their cleaning routine.
The 58mm Group Head Pro Cleaning Tool is crafted from durable aluminum with a sleek black anodized finish. It effectively cleans the group gasket and shower screen with a replaceable nylon ring brush featuring a microfiber center. Its integrated larger inspection mirror provides more viewing area. Additionally, it comes with an interchangeable slotted tool bit and magnetic tool bit holder.
The Drain Tray Pro Cleaning Tool is made from high-quality aluminum and features a comfortable contoured handle and high-impact plastic edge bumpers for easy maneuvering and surface protection. Its sleek black anodized finish and reusable thick absorbent microfiber pad make for a stylish and functional tool that traps dirt and water effectively while reducing towel usage.
Upgrading your cleaning routine with Artpresso’s Pro Cleaning Tools can elevate the cleanliness and efficiency of your espresso machine. They not only enhance the taste and quality of your espresso but also add an elegant touch to your coffee bar.
Artpresso also introduced the new Malkönig Grinder Wrench, which is a game-changing solution for maintaining your Mahlkonig next-generation grinder line. Collaborating with industry experts Ryan Sullivan and Jon McGee, Artpresso Design created a durable and precisely crafted tool to simplify the weekly maintenance process. With compatibility for the E80S, E80S/GBW, E65S, and E65S/GBW grinders, this wrench is specifically designed to solve the challenge of removing the grinder lid for cleaning. The interchangeable tool bit effectively loosens fasteners, while the three-pin socket unlocks the grinder lid with ease. The Malkrone is now in stock.
