Franke’s SB1200 coffee unit makes it all, from cappuccinos to cold brews

Feb. 25, 2021

New from Franke Coffee Systems is the Specialty Beverage Station, or SB1200, which allows beverage providers to be “fully prepared for today's coffee trends, as well as tomorrow's.”

Primarily designed for coffee shops, bakeries and cafés, behind the counter, the SB1200 is also suitable for self-service stations, Franke said. And the SB1200 can prepare an unprecedented variety of hot and cold coffee beverages, the Swiss company claims.

The SB1200’s integrated media pump modules make it possible to create cold brew beverages, in addition to the usual hot coffee specialties. Thanks to patented Franke technology, cold brew beverages can be easily created without additional nitrogen equipment (i.e., gas cylinder), both with or without foam topping and with cascading effect.

When combined with milk or syrup, this makes for a seemingly endless variety of beverages, which offer an even more appealing aroma and constantly perfect quality thanks to the Franke’s iQFlowTM technology, a standard feature.

The coffee machine and the operator panel on the SB1200 are controlled by a 12.1” touch display that supports photorealistic images for drink selections. Users can create their own beverage from a range of components: milk foam, syrup, cold brew, and so on.

All ingredients – whether syrup, milk foam, hot water or iced coffee – are dispensed centrally from a single spout that comes with automatic height adjustment. This new single dispensing spout, which requires no disassembly, is designed to make daily cleaning significantly easier.
