German automatic coffee machine manufacturer WMF has unveiled the newest addition to its product portfolio, the WMF 1300 S.
Delivering “outstanding performance in a compact, versatile package”, WMF says the new fully automatic machine offers a range of new features for greater dependability and serviceability.
With a recommended daily capacity of up to 120 cups on average, and up to three optionally lockable hoppers, the WMF 1300 S provides a reliable choice for all kinds of operations that serve coffee. The milk system ensures that the quality of the beverages remains consistently high, whether they use hot milk or hot milk foam. The machine is enhanced by features including an intelligent design concept that provides efficient access for servicing.
Designed to perform
With its slim dimensions – 32.5 by 66.9 by 57.4 centimetres – appealing design, and optional constant water supply, the WMF 1300 S can deliver long operation times and a fast return on investment.
The fully automatic machine can be equipped with two bean hoppers, a powder hopper with a 1200-gram capacity, and a manual insert for ground coffee, depending on which machine variant is selected. In WMF 1300 S models that operate without powder, each of the two bean hoppers hold 650 grams, while the models with a powder hopper offer capacities of 650 grams (right-hand hopper) and 550 grams (centre hopper). Restaurateurs and hoteliers whose priority is flexibility will also benefit from a four-litre water tank and the basic model’s reduced weight of 35 kilograms. Lockable hoppers ensure the machine can be used without issues in self-service operations.
Customers have the option of tailoring products to the type of operation – self-service or staff-operated – by using configurable templates designed for the fully automatic machine. The seven-inch touch display allows users to swipe vertically through all the functions available, which include settings for recipes, images, and colour concepts, plus cleaning and care programs. For even more convenience, the function bar at the bottom edge of the display features special pre-set functions and can be customised with numerous options to suit both guests and staff.
A new approach to machine maintenance
Where its design is concerned, the WMF 1300 S also delivers on its manufacturer’s commitment to process efficiency. The access points for servicing components as necessary have been optimised, while the machine concept makes it possible to remove the side walls, rear cover, and lid, independently from one another so that specific parts of the machine can be reached. This makes it much easier and quicker to work on the machine, even in tight spaces behind bar counters, in kitchenettes within offices, or elsewhere.
The key features of the new WMF 1300 S demonstrate sheer attention to detail, including a height-adjustable spout and a Cup Stop for ensuring that cups, mugs, and glasses are positioned in exactly the right place. Adjusting the coffee spout is easy, with a clearance height of 60 to 169 millimetres available. The optional decentralised hot waterspout is at a height of 107 millimetres.
The Basic Milk system delivers hot milk and hot milk foam of the very highest quality. An additional Basic Steam wand makes it possible to produce hot milk and milk foam manually. And if the user doesn’t have a heated cup rack available, the integrated SteamJet feature is able to bring cups and glasses up to the correct temperature.
The machine features even more convenient functions to keep everything running smoothly, including a fill level sensor that prevents the drip tray from overflowing. Beverage dispensing is also blocked if the bowl is missing or incorrectly positioned in the machine, ensuring process reliability and stability. A similar concept has been applied to the mixer wheel in the powder hopper: if it is not correctly attached, the sensors will issue a message that is then shown on the display.
