Ideal for large volumes

When things start to get hectic, the Melitta® Cafina® CT8 comes into its own! Top quality variations of coffee, milk and cocoa can be prepared quickly and reliably with your fingertips on the extra-large touch screen display whenever needed. The high hourly output of up to 250 cups guarantees the fast and efficient preparation of orders, even at the busiest times - or alternatively rapid self-service in the self-service mode.

The key benefits

Reasons you will love the CT8:

Strong performance, robust design

The Melitta® Cafina® CT8 combines strong performance with a functional, robust stainless steel design. Up to two high-performance grinders ensure full aroma for every coffee speciality.

Less effort

Fully automatic cleaning not only guarantees hygiene safety, it also saves you valuable time. All you need is one cleaning agent; you do not need to take the machine apart.

Top quality beverage variety

Patented technology for the best aroma - long-term! The stainless steel brewing unit ensures coffee can be enjoyed at its best - and ACS® automatically keeps the quality of the coffee consistent. TopFoam also provides stable milk foam for those special coffee taste experiences.
