European Coffee Expo ‘Exhibitor Spotlight’: Scanomat - a Q&A interview with co-founder and managing director Simon Bracken.
We’re excited to share that we will be exhibiting at the European Coffee Expo this May. Held at London Olympia, the European Coffee Expo is a trade-only event completely dedicated to the ever-growing business of coffee, tea, soft drinks and related products.
We are delighted to sponsor Smart Buildings 2018 - a unique one day conference with leading thinkers coming together to debate the new world of work, exploring new trends and how to best enhance assets of space, technology and people. The event is on Wednesday, 9th May 2018 at UBS, Broadgate Circus, London.
Direct Trade is a phrase commonly used in the coffee world, but what does it really mean? Does a term so commonly used actually mean anything or have any real value?
This week in our Spotlight On blog series, we’ll be exploring Direct Trade: what it means, how it differs to other types of trade, and what it means for the coffee farms, coffee roasters, and end consumers.
Welcome to the first instalment of our “Spotlight On:” Blog Series. In this blog series, we will be delving deeper into certain topics relating to the whole coffee-making process (from picking the beans, to pouring the perfect cup), providing you with easy-to-understand information that isn’t filled with complicated, technical language.
In last week’s blog (read it here), we briefly mentioned the importance of using top quality water when making coffee, and we will be going into more detail about the importance of water in this blog.
We are thrilled to be exhibiting at Europe’s definitive work, people, and office tech event: Work 2.0. The event is being held at London’s Business Design Centre on 24th and 25th April 2018.

We’ve had a fantastic 2017. The Scanomat UK team has nearly doubled and we have welcomed lots of great new clients. The holiday season is fast approaching and Team Scanomat are getting ready to have a few well deserved days off.
A couple of months ago at HostMilano, we served a variety of cocktails from the TopBrewer’s sister product, TopCocktail. They went down a treat, and whilst we don’t all have access to a TopCocktail machine, lots of us have access to a coffee machine. Which got us thinking…
Here at Scanomat, it’s no secret that we are passionate about coffee. We live, breathe and think it. But the way the coffee we know and love is consumed has changed since the first coffee beans were discovered roughly 1000 years ago. Our ancestors certainly didn’t start their days with a cup of Cold Brew or a macchiato.
A co-working space refers to a shared office space. Often used by freelancers, start ups and small companies, they can be a great alternative to a conventional office. According to coworkinglondon.com, the number of members of an average co-working space has increased by around 30% in the last couple of years, as well as the number of co-working spaces doubling. Between 2014 and 2015, there was a global increase of over 200,000 members of co-working spaces. It is thought that this trend is connected to the growing number of freelance workers, as well as people working remotely.
Other than the increase in freelance and flexible workers, what are some other reasons that co-working has become so popular? Why choose a co-working space, as opposed to a “normal” office?
We all know coffee is delicious, and (as you can read in this blog post) it can have some fantastic health benefits. But that’s not the only thing you can do with your coffee. The next time the coffee grounds bin needs emptying, don’t just throw it out. Each year, the UK produces 500,000 tonnes of waste coffee grounds each year. Instead of adding to this pile of waste, read on to find out how to recycle your coffee grounds!
