Franke’s Self-Service model can make 90 double shots of espresso per hour, and is designed for full access to patrons. The hot water dispenser and frothing wand have been removed for direct customer use, and with fully automatic brewing, frothing and steaming, the Evolution Self-Service is ideal for any high volume customer area. Plus, the Evolution comes with free installation and training from certified technicians, as well as a comprehensive 1-Year Preventative Maintenance Program to replace worn parts and extend the life of your machine.
Since the Evolution Self-Service model is intended for seamless customer operation, Franke has eliminated any guesswork that is usually associated with brewing and frothing. The traditional steam and hot water wands have been removed so that customers can rely on the automatic MilkSystem for milk drinks, and with clearly labeled program buttons there’s nothing left to chance. Patrons just place their cup on the platform and choose their desired drink, and the Evolution does the rest.
The Evolution Self-Service comes with a built-in refrigerator that keeps up to 6 liters of milk at a nice cold 41° Fahrenheit. With an integrated pump and electronic control system, the MilkSystem delivers frothed or steamed milk directly to the brew spout before, during or after the coffee is dispensed. Plus, the compressor refrigerator features adjustable temperature settings and is self-cleaning. After each use or after a programmable period of time, the MilkSystem will automatically run a rinse-cycle to ensure that every batch of frothed or steamed milk is fresh.
The Evolution Self-Service features the same intelligent control panel as our other models, with 6 dual functioning program buttons and an illuminated LCD screen. Since the Evolution requires a chip card for programming, you don't have to worry about customers accidentally changing the settings. Each drink button can be programmed for several different drinks, with a “shift” key to access each button’s additional function. Customers can select their choice of coffee products from designated program buttons, allowing easy, hands-free access to espressos, cappuccinos, lattes and more.
The Evolution Self-Service features 2 high-performance precision burr grinders to deliver fast and consistent grinds under the busiest circumstances. Each bean hopper holds over 2.8 lbs of coffee, and since they’re made of durable, transparent plastic you can keep an eye on your bean levels without stopping production.
The Evolution includes a stainless steel cup warmer to maximize temperature stability for each cup.
A 220v plug comes with the Evolution Self-Service, and the built-in refrigeration unit includes a 110v plug.
The Franke Evolution 2-Step comes with a 1-Year Preventative Maintenance Program featuring 3 visits by certified technicians that include the following:
Professional installation by certified technicians and start-up training come free with the purchase of the Evolution and can be scheduled at the time of purchase. This will ensure that your warranty will not be jeopardized by improper installation and that your machine in top shape for years to come. You may also want to consult with your plumber or contractor, as well as your code enforcement officer, on the following installation guidelines at the time of purchase. The Evolution must be plugged into a compatible 220v outlet, and the included refrigerator requires a 110v outlet.
If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!
