In conjunction with World Coffee Day, Philips is launching its range of fully automated espresso machines (FAEM) in Singapore. Amongst the machines is the Philips 3200 Series LatteGo, which touts the greatest in convenience while providing a wide range of customisations and beverage options.

The 3200 Series LatteGo takes whole roasted beans, grinding them immediately prior to brewing at the specified size and consistency with durable ceramic grinders. The bean container has an aroma seal to ensure beans retain freshness and flavour over time.

Users then have the option of five coffee beverages – brewed coffee, latte macchiato, cappuccino, espresso, and americano. Easily controlled via touch-sensitive display, the 3200 Series LatteGo also allows for further customisation for aroma strength and beverage quantity.

The highlight is the innovative and award-winning LatteGo milk system, which optimises the use of steam to heat and foam milk, while doing away with complicated, difficult-to-maintain pipes and tubes.

This means the LatteGo system is simply constructed from two parts (excluding the lid), enabling users to disassemble the milk carafe system for rinsing under running water, all under 15 seconds. The system is also dishwasher safe, for added convenience.

Working together with the revolutionary LatteGo easy-clean design is Philip’s patented AquaClean water filter system. This ensures that no descaling is required for 5,000 cups, meaning fresher-tasting coffee with the use of filtered water.
