Bunn-O-Matic, a commercial beverage equipment supplier, has announced its collaboration with manufacturer of superfood products, Laird Superfood.
The newly-found partnership has led to the production of a specialized machine for both coffee and non-caffeinated beverage.
The Laird Superfood Crescendo Machine claims to be the first vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO automated hot beverage machine in the marketplace and will soon be available for purchase or lease.
Ric Martin, Bunn’s vice president of sales, said: “Bunn’s partnership with Laird Superfood allows both parties to meet the increasing demand for vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, hot beverages that healthy consumers seek.
“Additionally, the Laird Superfood Creamer line offers a variety of taste profiles that provide operators with the flexibility to customize their drink menus.”
Bunn and Laird Superfood unveiled the new machine at key industry trade show Expo West on March 5-9 and plan to show attendees of the NAMA Show the model on April 24-26.
The machine combines hot water or brewed coffee with Laird Superfood creamers to produce either a ‘superfood latte’, ‘superfood hot cacao’ or ‘superfood golden milk with turmeric’.
Luan Pham, chief revenue and marketing officer of Laird Superfood, said: “We are excited to collaborate with Bunn to redefine the coffee experience for our customers by delivering a simplified method to craft power-packed superfood beverages at the touch of a button.”
