SLIEDRECHT, The Netherlands -- de Jong Duke reports that its Nio brewer has been certified by NSF International to its NSF/ANSI Standard 4 for equipment and materials intended for commercial foodservice. NSF was established in1944 as theNational Sanitation Foundation. It became NSF International in 1990 as it extended our services beyond sanitation and into global markets.

The Nio is an automated countertop machine built around de Jong Duke's versatile CoEx dual brewer, which can produce conventional coffee brewed under standard atmospheric pressure, and espresso, which requires eight to 10 bar (atmospheres). The CoEx system, which incorporates patented de Jong Duke technology, was introduced in 2003.

Measuring 23.6 ins. high X 18.1 ins. wide X 21.3 ins. deep, Nio is fitted with a 10.4-in. full-color high resolution touchscreen monitor and a wide range of features. It is available in milk-topping and fresh milk versions and can be set up for self-service and full-service operation. It can accommodate a daily throughput of at least 150 drinks, so it is well-suited to use in offices and many foodservice operations..

Full-color LED lights in the ingredient canisters permit tuning the machine to its environment and assist in its operation. A misplaced canister or a full waste bucket are signalled by subtle visual indicators. Visible ingredients not only allow for easy filling, but also enhance the experience of preparing and enjoying the beverage.

Menus, selections, icons and cup sizes all are adjustable for easy customization. Fine-tuning can be done with the aid of images, videos and communications in the standby mode and while preparing beverages. With additional software and a LAN or WiFi connection, the machine can be brought online for communication purposes and for remote access and advanced monitoring. De Jong Duke's ConnectMe software enables optimizing service, reducing costs and improving the user experience.

De Jong Duke manufactured its first coffee machine in 1957. It was founded in 1897 by blacksmith J.M. de Jong in Alblasserdam, South Holland (near Rotterdam), and remains a family-owned business today. It recently celebrated its 50th anniversary as a brewer manufacturer (see VT, October).

An international leader in coffee vending technology, de Jong Duke maintains manufacturing facilities in Sliedrecht, The Netherlands and Taylor, MI, U.S.A. It is online at
