Coffee at its peak

Hotel Riffelhaus, Zermatt, Switzerland

Amidst the dramatic peaks of the Swiss Alps, on the terrace of Hotel Riffelhaus, guests delight in the spectacular view of the Matterhorn. But it’s not just the view that draws a crowd, it's the coffee that lets them really savor the moment.

Bundled in heavy coats, legs tucked under blankets, and noses pointed toward the sun, guests of Hotel Riffelhaus rest their gaze on one of Switzerland's most beautiful mountains – a moment made all the more enjoyable with hands cupped around a steaming coffee, cappuccino, latte macchiato or tea. To ensure that these moments are truly elevated, Franke A600 automatic coffee machines work tirelessly behind the scenes. Subject to intense daily demands both in volume and quality, the neatly arranged touch screens of the A600 ensure their staff can effortlessly serve your guests their favorite drink and can maintain their attention on customers, not machines. When Jürgen Marx took over the management of the Riffelhaus, he wasn't satisfied with the milk foam. “Indeed, I personally love milk froth. For me, the latter must be quite simply perfect,” he says. Now, thanks to FoamMaster, staff can prepare the perfect barista-quality milk foam that Marx loves – and loves to serve. From refreshing cold milk froth to artistically layered hot coffee beverages, both the consistency and density of foam can be effortlessly varied according to each specialty order. Beyond service, Marx also demanded a cleaning solution to ensure peak performance for each of the 200 cups served per day. "Rational cleaning is extremely important for our establishment", he says. The A600 takes care of this. Its fully automatic CleanMaster module with an integrated cleaning cartridge allows for efficient and intuitive cleaning that complies with strict HACCP standards at all times.
Franke Coffee Systems man talking “Today, everyone expects to be served barista-quality coffee,” says Fernando Clemenz, Head of Catering at Matterhorn Group AG.

Thanks to Franke's automatic coffee machines, the Matterhorn Group AG not only benefits from coffee quality that meets the trends of today but also serves their business needs into tomorrow.

“With Franke, a handshake is enough. With them, a word given remains a word given. They see us as a customer and they are a reliable partner for us,” says Fernando Clemenz, Head of Catering at Matterhorn Group AG. “Frankly, I had thought that we would have to replace the machines long before. However, they are as reliable and solid as a Swiss watch movement.”
