The pandemic has forced many business people to get creative and change lanes before they grind to a halt — and the surge in coffee vans is fueled by more than double espresso thinking. Quality brews from the mobile version of a pop-up coffee shop is helping fill the void as we miss hanging out properly with friends.
One thing that’s helping to blow up this market is machines that can run on gas as well as electricity — and the Fracino Contempo Dual Fuel Espresso machine is way out ahead in the industry right now.
Fracino is an award-winning company celebrating nearly 60 years of coffee machine innovation, and their Contempo Dual Fuel machine is a game-changer. The gas aspect is the real revelation here. A normal coffee machine has only an element to heat the water, which needs at least 3500W, so you’d need an enormous and expensive generator just for the coffee machine, which is LOUD, so not the most inviting prospect.
But the Francino Contempo has an option of using gas as an alternative, which translates to the same power as a 5000W element. With gas regulating temperature, you only need up to 350W of electricity to run the pump and control panels of the machine, and you can achieve this power by using a 12v gel battery and 12v-240v inverter. This system frees up lots of power for a coffee grinder, fridge, lights, water pump, toasting grill and all the accessories of a souped-up coffee van.
Fracino make the most powerful gas-powered machines in the world, with programmable buttons and steam wands for texturing perfect milk. However, they also make the most stylish on-the-go machines. Let’s face it, you want your quirky mobile coffee hub to look the part, right? The Contempo has a classic modern design finished in stainless steel that shines like polished chrome. Dazzle them with looks as well as artisan coffee beans!
