Individual enjoyment

Coffee plays an important role in modern business environments. It provides enjoyment and is also a facilitator of communication during breaks or meetings. The Promesso fully automatic coffee maker is tailored to use in office environments, where it harmoniously blends in with its distinctively asymmetric, modern design language. It is designed for permanent use and impresses with highly developed functionality: it is easy to handle and easy to maintain. The fully automatic coffee maker unites the enjoyment of high-quality coffee with a unique experience of coffee preparation. With a gentle touch on the touchscreen, it allows users to intuitively select their preferred coffee strength and milk volume. The preparation is quiet and, if required, the machine serves up to 130 fine-tuned, quality cups of coffee per hour. As the coffee market is mostly driven by “premiumisation”, consumers today demand better quality coffee tailored to their personal preferences. A feature that highly enriches daily office routines is the option to set up one’s personal profile, allowing to save up to three different drinks, which are easily accessible via the touchscreen at any time. In this way, every user always gets his favourite cup of coffee. Thus, this device combines the experience of good design with individual coffee enjoyment at the highest level.

Statement by the jury

»Promesso embodies an entirely new generation of fully automatic coffee makers. Via a clearly designed touchscreen it is easy and elegant to handle in office environments. It fascinates with the possibility of setting up personal, directly accessible user profiles. This fully automatic coffee maker impresses with a stylistic idiom that skilfully borrows elements from the era of Art Deco, blending them with modern details.«
