The company, which is a pioneer in developing new-generation solutions for espresso coffee machines, will provide a connected machine on Vodafone's stand, its technology provider, showcasing the innovative system that delivers real-time key data of the machines.

Thanks to Quality Espresso Link, the owners and operators of coffee machines, which include coffee roasters and suppliers, can obtain information such as the number of coffee cycles performed, fault messages or the need to carry out preventive maintenance.

The system works thanks to a Vodafone Global SIM card installed on the electronic board of each machine and which transmits all the information to a data platform. Coffee machine owners may then access the information from the data platform using an Internet-connected device, whether it be a computer, a tablet or a smartphone.

Barcelona, February 2017.- Quality Espresso, one of the world's leading manufacturers of espresso coffee machines, will exhibit its groundbreaking Internet of Things (IoT) system Quality Espresso Link at the Mobile World Congress (27 February – 2 March). The company, which is a pioneer in developing new-generation solutions for espresso coffee machines, will provide a connected machine on Vodafone's stand, its technology provider, showcasing the innovative system that delivers real-time key data of the machines to the owners and operators of the equipment. Quality Espresso Link was present at the IOT Solutions World Congress Barcelona last October, where Vodafone exhibited the system as an example of the application of the Internet of Things in the coffee sector.

Thanks to Quality Espresso Link, the owners and operators of coffee machines, which include coffee roasters and suppliers, can obtain information such as the number of coffee cycles performed, fault messages or the need to carry out preventive maintenance. The system helps them to provide a faster and more efficient service that is tailored to the needs of the cafés, hotels and restaurants where the coffee machines are located. It is also very useful when it comes to identifying consumer trends and monitoring commercial campaigns.

The system works thanks to a Vodafone Global SIM card installed on the electronic board of each machine and which transmits all the information to a data platform. Coffee machine owners may then access the information from the data platform using an Internet-connected device, whether it be a computer, a tablet or a smartphone. Quality Espresso Link is offered as an option on newly produced espresso models. An easy-to-install kit is available for machines that are already manufactured and installed as far back as the year 2000.

Aim: over 15,000 connected machines in 2020

To date, Quality Espresso Link is already operational in bars, cafés, hotels and restaurants in Spain, where it is receiving very positive feedback. The company now works to expand the sales and implantation of the system in international markets. The company forecasts reaching over 15,000 connected machines in almost one hundred countries by the year 2020.
