Our new LAF Bar Pro by Frank Buna has won the prestigious Best New Product Award at the World of Coffee event in Milan this June. Our foamer was pitted against many other new products in the Commercial Coffee Preparation and Serving Equipment category, and we're proud to say that it came out on top!

Judges praised the product for its dynamic functionality and aesthetic design, and we're thrilled that the Latte Art Factory Bar Pro has been recognised by the Specialty Coffee Association as a top new product in the industry.

The LAF Bar Pro: Making Waves in the World of Coffee

World of Coffee is one of the biggest events in the specialty coffee calendar, and this year's edition was no exception. The event is held over three days and is packed with activities, from exhibitions and demonstrations to the SCA Lecture Series and the World Coffee Championships. This year, we submitted our product for the Best New Product Award category, and our win is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our team.

From the very start our goal was to create a top-of-the-line product that would make it easy for baristas to create perfect foam every time. The LAF Bar Pro is not not only our response to the global staffing shortage  in the coffee industry - it's our way to empower baristas and help them create amazing drinks that constantly wow their customers.

The judges took into account aspects such as design, innovation, science, sustainability and current industry trends to come to their decision. We're honored to have won this award, and feel inspired  to continue innovating and developing products that make a real difference in the world of coffee.

Latte Art Factory Bar Pro

We had hope that our product would be well-received at World of Coffee, but to come away with the Best New Product Award is truly incredible. It’s true that our LAF Bar Pro combines style and substance to create the perfect foamer for any cafe. It has a small footprint, which means that it doesn't create a barrier between barista and customer, and it also improves the customers' workflow, efficiency and speed of delivery without compromising on the quality of beverage.  

The product's sleek design enhances the customer's experience, and its liquid textures and flavors give the barista complete control of the coffee experience. Compared to  other machines on the market, the LAF Bar Pro is a step above the rest, as it can extract hot milk, hot foam, cold milk and cold foam, at the exact same time. This means that the customer can use up to 4 different phases of extraction in just one receive!  

The LAF Bar Pro is also unique as it lets you use any plant-based liquid and extract it with the same quality and perfection as dairy milk. This means that you can make vegan-friendly coffees that taste just as good as regular coffees. You can also use chocolate milk, and make it into ice chocolate or hot chocolate at the push of a button.

Additionally, the LAF Bar Pro helps minimize milk wastage by up to 25%, making it  a more sustainable option for cafes looking to reduce their environmental impact.  

Finally, the LAF Bar Pro is cloud-enabled, which means cafe owners can not only  monitor consumption data in real-time, thus making more informed decisions about their menu and pricing but also service the machine remotely, leading to less downtime and more reliable performance. Technology solutions have always been at the heart of our company ethos, alongside a commitment to superior quality and innovation. We are very proud to say that the LAF Bar Pro is a reflection of all that.
