What makes the product unique?

There are a number of elements that make The Juggler unique.

The Juggler dispenses milk from 10 litre bladders. Bladders connect automatically to the dispensing system as they are loaded into the chiller. The chiller sits under the caf bench and milk is dispensed through taps that are set into the caf bench alongside the coffee machine.

Hands-free volumetric dosing enables a barista to multitask more efficiently compared to using milk in bottles. A barista uses their jug to activate a pre-programmed dose of milk which pours automatically as they return to other tasks. Volumetric dosing can also dramatically reduce the amount of milk that otherwise may be wasted when manually pouring milk from a bottle.

A hugely important feature of The Juggler is the simple to use and extremely effective clean in place (CIP) system. Achieving and maintaining HACCP accreditation, this CIP system ensures that high food safety standards are easily met and maintained by a very wide variety of users.

What benefits will it deliver to foodservice operators?

There are 430 operators now using The Juggler milk tap system. The Juggler team really values customer input and regularly receives great feedback about the benefits it’s generating.

Feedback tells us quantifiable benefits include: recognisable increases in the amount of coffees sold; substantial saving in milk waste and plastic waste; savings in staff costs given baristas can multitask more easily.

Other benefits aren’t as easily quantified but are still viewed as important, such as: each coffee starts with the exact volume of fresh, chilled milk, which textures better; greater level of consistency in coffee service; reduction in clutter around workspace, as bottles aren’t left out on bench; more efficient workflow.

What type of application is it best suited to?

The Juggler is generally used to dispense milk for coffee, and customers include a large number of cafes, boutique roasters and specialty coffee companies, hotels and venue groups like Urban Purveyor Group and Merivale, through to large chains like McDonalds. 

The system has been adapted to dispense milk for milkshakes in Burger Project and Krispy Kreme, and also a unique retail milk concept with Harris Farm Markets.

A cool innovation from Liebherr

Name your product

The Liebherr Professional ProfiPremiumLine are a range of upright single and two door food service refrigerators and freezers, designed to exceed the exacting standards demanded of refrigerators and freezers in the restaurant, hotel and catering business.

What makes the product unique?

The Liebherr Professional ProfiPremiumLine range stands out with their low power consumption and maximum efficiency, plus their ability to be integrated in a HACCP concept and comply with the requirements for optimum food hygiene.

The appliances have 83 mm blown insulation in the walls, which minimises energy loss and ensures temperature consistency. Precision electronics and sensors control the refrigeration system, of highly-efficient compressors, using environmentally friendly refrigerant R 290 and twin high efficiency air distribution fans. Energy used during defrost is minimized by using a hot-gas defrost system that allows for defrosting less often but faster, with the processtaking only 10 minutes.

The end result is energy leading energy efficiency. For example, the GKPv 6590 single door refrigerator uses as little as 0.728 kWh of electricity per day. At 30c per kWh this would cost just $78 a year to run.

ProfiPremiumLine electronic control system is equipped with default temperature range and humidity control programs and features integrated temperature logging (for HACCP-compliant documentation), while visual and audible door alarms alert the user to any excessive rise in temperature, and can be connected to an external alarm or central monitoring system. The single sheet membrane control fascia is dirt resistant and easy to clean and HACCP compliant.

Internally, the moulded 304 grade stainless steel liner base features generously radiused corners for easy cleaning and a water drain for optimum hygiene. The liner features integrated ribs as shelf support surfaces, allowing GN 2/1 containers to slide directly on the storage ribs and be easily adjusted. The shelves have a loading capacity of up to 60 kg – so overloading is almost impossible. Gastronorm containers 2/1 slide directly on the storage ribs.

What benefits will it deliver to foodservice operators?

Key benefits are low energy consumption, integrated alarms systems to prevent product loss, HACCP compliance, very easy to clean and maintain and quite operation.

What type of application is it best suited to?

High standard restaurants and catering establishments who don’t want to compromise on the reliable storage of food.

Where can the product be sourced?

The range is readily available from Andi-Co Australia, or specialist Liebherr Professional distributors.
