    WMF espresso indulges AIDAcara passengers with delicious coffee creations
    Geislingen/Steige - The cruise ships of the AIDA fleet have always been among the trendsetters in the industry. The revolutionary experience concept of the cruise liners leaves nothing to be desired with regard to service, entertainment and cuisine. So it's little wonder that AIDAcara passengers also go into raptures over their enjoyment of the coffee. Recently, guests have been able to indulge themselves in the heavenly coffee creations made with the WMF espresso portafilter concept at the newly redesigned pool bar. "AIDA Cruises represents a unique holiday experience. That's why we pay close attention to all aspects of premium quality and further refine it with a loving eye for detail. WMF espresso creations emphasise this promise perfectly. We offer our guests outstanding coffee products – both in terms of quality and preparation", says Marc Spingler, Director of Hotel & Guest Services at AIDA Cruises.

    Guests want for nothing – a holiday spent on the AIDAcara is a very special experience. On the eleven decks of the 193 metre cruise ship, each passenger discovers their own personal holiday paradise. "One of our key principles is to always have an eye on the market and actively identify emerging requirements and leisure trends", says Spingler. Thanks to this strategy, service and enjoyment offers from AIDA Cruises are always cutting edge. Even the very first member of the fleet, the AIDAcara, constantly amazes with new highlights. After her shipyard maintenance at the beginning of the year, the diversity of experiences the ocean liner has to offer is bigger than ever before. A clear example of this is the newly designed bar areas – particularly the pool bar on the upper deck, which pampers guests with cool, refreshing drinks and delicious coffee specialities at any time of the day or night. "When it comes to coffee enjoyment, the general market trends provide clear signals: individual specialties are increasingly in demand, with quality being the top priority", explains Spingler. In the search for a suitable machine concept, the decision came down to our long-standing partner, WMF – the premium manufacturer and market leader from Geislingen an der Steige in southern Germany. "Just like AIDA Cruises, the WMF brand stands for quality, customer experience and innovation. In this sense, the WMF espresso portafilter machine has completely won us over. We can't wait to be able to offer our guests something really special with this unique machine".

    Anyone can be a barista!
    As the first representative of a new era of machines, the WMF espresso produces "hand-made espresso at the touch of a button". All manual steps whereby it has to hiss, steam and knock are carried out with Italian flair in the traditional barista fashion. However, the actual coffee production takes place fully automatically in the background. Every cup – be it espresso or café crème – is distinguished by maximum quality thanks to its process stability and speed.
