  • Reducing energy consumption

    Reducing energy consumption

    Part of lowering our carbon footprint also involves reducing the energy consumption of the machines we use to deliver our beverages. All our machines use modern production methods and technology in order to increase their energy efficiency. For instance in standby mode they only use on average 2kw per 12 hours.
