Kalea Plus: Evoca says ‘think smart when you think ‘coffee machine’…

Kalea Plus, from Evoca Group’s Necta brand, has been in the news this week as an emerging trend continues to gain traction in the marketplace. Increasingly, consumers are turning away from cow’s milk in favour of a plant-based alternative – and many office coffee machines are ill-equipped to address this growing requirement.

Plant-based milks are more popular than they’ve ever been and there’s no end in sight to the upward curve. Worldwide sales are projected to exceed £25 billion by 2024. One of the main drivers underpinning this surge in popularity is concern for the environment. Apparently, a single cup of coffee using cow’s milk has roughly double the CO2 of a cup made with a dairy-free alternative.

Many coffee shops are offering a selection of non-dairy ‘milk’ these days. Sales of oat milk in particular have soared in recent years and soya, almond, coconut, cashew and rice alternatives are also out there.

‘The Kalea Plus is a coffee machine that allows customers to accommodate the requirements of this growing band of non-dairy consumers, so they won’t have to leave the premises to get their coffee fix’, Evoca Sales Director Craig Jukes said. ‘In the milk container of the Kalea Plus, cow’s milk can be provided as ‘standard’ – but because this machine has a separate steam wand, it can also be used to steam any kind of milk that your customers want. Not every coffee machine out there gives you that option.

‘Thinking ‘smart’ now about your on-going coffee requirements could effectively future-proof your office coffee offer’, Craig said.
