Bellissimo’s Animated Coffee Clip Art
Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup announces the release of Movin’ Sip Art, a unique collection of animated coffee clip art on CD-ROM for use on the World Wide Web.

“These one-of-a-kind animated images will jazz up and add movement to your Web site,” says Bruce Milletto, President of Bellissimo Coffee InfoGroup. “There is a lot of animation on the Web right now, but very little that is specific to coffee. We developed Movin’ Sip Art for companies in the coffee industry that have Web sites and want to have unique graphic content.”

Some of the images included are animated email graphics, coffee cups and coffee equipment. The CD-ROM is suitable for both Windows and Macintosh formats.

The 63 images in the collection are the work of James Cloutier, the artist who created the images on Bellissimo’s Sip Art Volumes 1, 2 and 3 and Sip Art Countries of Origin. Images from these volumes are used for menus, flyers, advertising, labels, and point-of-purchase items. The images were animated by Mike Wooster of Premierelink Communications.

Bellissimo is the producer of coffee industry media and books.

A New Range of Coffee Machines
Animo, manufacturer of coffee brewing systems, introduces the Millennium range: a new range of coffee machines for glass jugs and thermos jugs. These fast brew machines are fitted with various extras. Two eye-catching features are the jug detector and the “prewetting-brew” brewing process.

The jug detector prevents the coffee brewer from boiling up any water while there is no jug under the filter. If you remove the jug during the brewing process, the water will stop boiling immediately and the filter will close. Only after replacing the jug, will the brewing process resume.

The Animo machines also give the option of making coffee by way of the so called “prewetting brew process.” This means that after 15 seconds (100 ml water) the brewing process stops for a moment. The coffee now gets the chance to steep in the filter. After steeping for 60 seconds the brewing process continues until the desired number of cups has been reached. Steeping the coffee during the brewing process releases the coffee flavor more effectively. The coffee machines are available in semi-automatic and automatic versions. In addition there are also models with a hot water tap for making a cup of tea. In short, the millennium range is a welcome addition to every kitchen or canteen.

New Premium Decaffeinated
Swiss Water Decaffeinated Coffee Company, Inc. has announced the introduction of its own Premium Decaffeinated Espresso Blend.

The blend was carefully blended from a number of fine coffees to create a perfect decaffeinated espresso. The pre-mixed blend is delivers a bold aroma, flavor, complexity, body and finish, not least of which is a classic créma. While its overall flavor impression is mild, it is also penetrating enough for any milk-based drink.

Research shows interest in decaf is on the rise again as seen in the most recent NCA study, which shows that a long term decline has halted and decaffeinated share is on the rise.

The new blend is packed in a 30 kg bag. The company says that the Swiss Water Espresso Blend bag can greatly reduce decaf investment for roaster/retailers while increasing turnover. Stocking the blend will also simplify management of the product category roasting schedule.
