Customers can outsource their coffee water

 - October 1, 2008, 6:28 AM

The new Hi-Fly “t” series of espresso and coffee makers by Iacobucci HF Electronics S.p.A., enables brewers to connect their own external source of water rather than rely on the machine’s tank. Both the Hi-Fly “t” Americana coffee machine and the Hi-Fly “t” Espresso & Cappuccino unit are percolating here at Booth No. 737.

Lucio Iacobucci introduced the company’s first coffeemaker for Italian-style espresso in 1995, and has since expanded the product line with the Automatica, which is used to prepare hot milk, café au lait, cappuccino, espresso and double espresso. The Iacobucci Water Heater can heat a serving-size of water in seconds, and the Hi-Fly Americana series can simultaneously brew an American-style pot of coffee and boil a pitcher of water for tea. The machines meet Arinc standards and are certified by the FAA and EASA. They are in use by 50 airlines and are growing in popularity with business aircraft operators, the company reports.

The units are constructed of anodized and milled aluminum and electronically compensate for pressure and temperature up to an altitude of 39,000 feet.
Iacobucci also builds the Hi-Fly trash compactor, which features a low power consumption of 360VA to drive two tons of compacting force for either cartons or recyclable aluminum trash boxes.
