MIAMI -- Now available from Comobar is the Kelly system, a single-cup countertop machine that uses proprietary portion packets to prepare five styles of coffee, as well as lemon tea, with pushbutton ease. Designed for coffee service, it will be exhibited at the upcoming National Automatic Merchandising Association OneShow in Las Vegas.
Measuring only 11" wide by 15.5" high by 12.25" deep, the Kelly machine operates on 110V., 60Hz. power; its heat exchanger draws 600W. The apparatus can be plumbed directly to a potable waterline, and is equipped with a removable 1.1-liter (37 fl.oz.) pour-in reservoir. It is fully automatic, and customers can choose 8- or 10-fl.oz. portions.
The Kelly product line includes traditional, dark, smooth, 100% Colombian and decaffeinated coffee, plus lemon tea. A selection can be enhanced with French vanilla or hazelnut flavoring.
Founded in 1981, Comobar partnered with the Italian manufacturer Trial to bring a compact, fully automatic espresso machine and a line of concentrated espresso products to the U.S. market. It introduced its popular XL automatic espresso machine and EZ-System 300 steamer machine, working with Espresso Italia s.r.l. early in the new millennium.
