Updated La San Marco model from Michaelo

Michaelo Espresso, Inc. has introduced a new La San Marco espresso machine. This model increases brew capacity by devoting a dedicated hot-water reservoir to each brewing group while freeing up the boiler for uninterrupted steaming. A dedicated heat exchanger for each group improves temperature control, keeping water for brewing at the optimal temperature while allowing hotter water for steaming to be produced in a separate boiler.

The La San Marco provides a cold-water system to produce consistent, clean and accurate shots. Nickel plated boilers are the most desirable type of construction because, unlike stainless steel, they contract and expand well with heat and pressure in the machine, eliminating the potential for fitting failure.

The new machine also features the heaviest and thickest group head diffuser made for espresso machines.

Private-Label, after-coffee breath mints

Kick Prints offers all cafes - from multi-store chains to single locations - the opportunity to sell breath mints imprinted with the café’s own logo. As most coffee lovers know, nothing follows a hot cup of dark roast coffee better than an intense peppermint breath mint. Coffee drinkers have long struggled with ways to counter the effects of “coffee breath,” long after the last bit of coffee has been sipped.

For as low as $1.15 per unit, Kick Prints will imprint a tin of mints with the café’s logo. The process at Kick Prints allows cafes to do so with no minimum order size. The tins are hinged and printed in full color and are filled with intense, sugar-free peppermints.

Kick Prints 4675 Stevens Creek Blvd., Suite 240, Santa Clara, CA 95051. Tel: (1)(408) 260-0900 Fax: (1)(267) 347-8874. Web: www.kickprints.com.
