At Scanomat, we like different! That’s why we turned the world of coffee on it’s head a few years ago and reimagined the coffee experience with our revolutionary TopBrewer, the world first iPhone controlled premium professional bean to cup coffee machine. Not only that, we decided to reinvent the design too and created the world's first under counter bean-to-cup and fresh milk system, serving drinks from one distinctive elegant swan neck.
With over 50 years of experience, we are innovators and always have been. The multi award-winning TopBrewer is changing the face of the modern day consumer coffee experience and we are seeing extraordinary growth in all market sectors throughout the world.
We are also an expert coffee roasting business and all of our speciality grade coffee is sustainably sourced direct from independent farms and carefully roasted by us, in-house, to world class sustainable & ethical standards.
Operating our own subsidiary business in the UK, we supply and support our end user customers directly with our own in-house expert team, and that team is expanding, fast!
A coffee experience like no other!
We are very proud of our Scanomat TopBrewer app for Android, iPad, iPhone, and now Apple watch. It is a truly revolutionary way to brew a cup of coffee. We have developed this clever app because we believe that everyone has the right to quality coffee, without having a barista at your fingertips.
The app creates a new, innovative user experience and integrates coffee brewing in any environment. By introducing the app into the coffee universe, we were given the freedom to create something new - the freedom to make our dreams a reality.
The beautiful, patented stainless swan neck is designed to be built into any type of countertop. The simplicity of TopBrewer fits elegantly into any environment, and allows operators to focus on a more direct contact with their customers or clients. TopBrewer brews a perfect cup of fresh bean-to-cup coffee - every time. Our patented milk foamer froths fresh milk to the perfect consistency for each drink. TopBrewer also serves chilled drinking water, hot chocolate and hot water for tea. Welcome to the future of coffee... reimagined.
