UCC, the UK’s exclusive distributor of Thermoplan, has launched the innovative and ground-breaking BLACK&WHITE4 CTS two-step automatic coffee machineinto the UK and Irish market. 

The world-class fully automatic espresso machine is now available nationwide, bringing its unrivalled speed, consistent quality, and ultimate versatility to operators looking to grow their coffee category, drive cost efficiencies and avoid waste.

Perfect for any hospitality or retail outlet with a served coffee offer of medium and or high daily demand, the BLACK&WHITE4 CTS allows operators to make consistently outstanding coffee up to 20% faster than a traditional coffee machine, thanks to its ground-breaking technology and innovation, saving labour and waste with every cup.

As part of its pioneering design, the BLACK&WHITE4 CTS introduces the revolutionary fully automated steam wand with AirSteam® function, allowing automatic and precise milk texturing, whatever the size of the jug or the type of milk being used. This cutting-edge feature is what has positioned the Black&White4 CTS as the first-ever fully-automatic coffee machine to qualify and be chosen for the SCA’s World Latte Art Championship 2024–2027 (SCA Statement). The AutoSteam function enables baristas to effortlessly craft velvety textured milk for lattes and cappuccinos by automatically detecting the optimum milk temperature for each serve, delivering an unparalleled experience for both operators and customers.

The BLACK&WHITE4 CTS is designed with sustainability in mind. Like all Thermoplan equipment, the majority of the components are sourced within a 272km radius of Thermoplan’s Swiss Factory (Sustainability Repot) . The intelligent shot quality system (ISQ) ensures that the coffee tastes perfect as well as enhancing efficiency and waste reduction. This supports the eco-conscious goals of operators and aligns with the increasing demand from consumers for environmentally responsible products.

Elaine Swift, OOH Director, UCC Europe says: “We are incredibly excited to bring the BLACK&WHITE4 CTS to market on behalf of our long-term partner Thermoplan. Designed with the operator’s needs in mind, this machine offers exceptional espresso quality, endorsed by Baristas and the SCA. This advancement is heightened by its state-of-the-art steam wand that ensures flawless milk every time, regardless of volume, temperature, or type. The CTS is an absolute game changer for any venue selling served coffee – quality, consistency, reductions in waste and labour are the critical success factors that every operator is crying out for in today’s trading environment, making the CTS an invaluable asset for enhancing their coffee offer and improving the overall consumer experience.”
