Drury Tea & Coffee

Cafetières are popular way of serving coffee, but staff can add differing amounts, which means that the strength of the coffee can be variable, and cost harder to control

The Drury Tea & Coffee Company has produced a range of cafetière portion packs as a solution.

The range comprises three coffees - Executive Blend, Colombian Decaffeinated and Mayfair. Each is packed in individual 25g portions, the correct amount of coffee to make a three-cup cafetière.

Drury director Marco Olmi says: "Cafetière coffee is proving increasingly popular. From the restaurateur's point of view, there is no waste.

"We've developed this range at the request of many of our customers. The fact that they are portion packed means they will be fresh every time and that enables caterers to use more than one coffee, to create an interesting coffee menu."

Tetley has launched its Redbush tea into the foodservice market.

The product, which the company launched in retail last year, has been updated to include the no-drip, no-spill Tetley Drawstring mechanic.

Tetley Redbush is a naturally sweet and caffeine-free tea from South Africa.

Peter Haigh, brand development manager for Tetley in the out of home market, says: "Research has shown that consumers are looking for something healthy and different in the afternoon when previously they would have had a coffee.

"Due to its high antioxidant content and the fact that it is naturally caffeine-free, Redbush fills this gap in the market.

"We believe that it has the potential to mimic the phenomenal growth that we have seen in green tea over the past few years."

Manufacturer Sielaff has announced a new range of table-top hot drinks machines under the Sielissimo brand name.

There are three different variants in the range: instant, fresh brew and bean-to-cup espresso machines.

Hiigh tech features common to all three models include a new water system. Instead of mechanical valves, which can cause scale related problems, Sielaff has put in pinch valves and platinum strengthened hoses.

Water is never in contact with the valve or the pump and never touches the moving parts, the system is said to eliminate scale build-up.

To prevent clogging caused by steam from the hot water boiler, the machines are all equipped with a steam extraction system, which operates via stainless steel flow plates.

The Chocolady from Carpigiani UK aims to offer customers a gourmet hot chocolate experience.

The machine is easy to use and keep clean, and adds a nice visual touch to the back bar or food servery. The Chocolady's bain marie heating system means there is no danger of burning the chocolate, while a circulating paddle stirs and tempers the chocolate mix into a think and rich hot drink.

Takeaway options can be a useful driver of additional trade for pubs. Disposable cup supplier Huhtamaki has produced a Foodservice Disposables Report, based on an independent survey of more than 300 caterers.

The report highlights that the use of biodegradable products will continue to rise due to the adoption of corporate social responsibility and environmental management initiatives. Increased awareness of 'green' issues has impacted on all sectors, with virtually all caterers believing they should convert to using more biodegradable products.

Huhtamaki manufactures a variety of innovative foodservice disposables, including the BioWare range which can help outlets comply with the growing trend towards the use of disposables and biodegradables.

To request a free copy of the Foodservice Disposables Report, call Huhtamaki Marketing on 02392 512434.
