A food vending company that specializes in healthy drinks and snacks has become the latest to enter the specialty coffee vending game. San Diego-based Fresh Healthy Vending has introduced the Fresh Healthy Vending Café line, featuring organic coffee drinks side-by-side with healthy snacks.
The Fresh Healthy machine grinds whole beans, extracts espresso, froths milk and disposes of used grinds in fewer than 40 seconds, the company says, and consumers can enjoy gourmet numerous espresso-based drinks, including flavored lattes. The machine also features a selection of healthy, natural snack options, such as yogurts, smoothies, fruit, vegetables, granola bars, baked chips and natural sodas.
“The new line of Fresh Healthy Vending Café machines saves consumers time and money spent going to the corner coffee shop, but still lets them enjoy the taste and quality of a gourmet cup of coffee,” Fresh Healthy Vending CEO Dan Negroni said in a company release. “It’s the perfect machine to have in offices, hospitals, business parks and more to offer gourmet coffee and a healthy snack within seconds.”
The self-serve specialty coffee vending machines concept has taken off this year, as companies including Marley Coffee, Seattle’s Best, Briggo and Kenko Millicano have all announced large-scale plans to distribute branded vending units.
