Kaapi Machines, India's leading coffee equipment supplier for the mercantile industry, launches India's first Modbar at Araku Cafe in Bangalore. Kaapi Machines' endeavor to partner with and brings to India world-class brands that have launched cutting-edge technology and innovation in the coffee equipment industry. This led to an exclusive partnership with the La Marzocco Group and paved the way for the first setup of Modbar in India.

According to the company, Modbar brings an extremely innovative, first-of-its-kind Espresso brewing system that can be neatly tucked away under the counter, allowing the owners to create their modular bar or Modbar. One can program the lever as per preferences, double or single espresso by time, ratio, or even a purge option after every use. This allows the creation of distinct stations with a few standalone steam wands. If one wants to keep things classy and mirror the traditional espresso machine, align the espresso and steam modules, showing a close-up view of how the perfect cappuccino is made. Whatever customer experience one wants to go through, Modbar has a module for just the purpose.

Making for a seamless center stage piece - from architectural studios and art galleries to hip offices and co-working spaces; from luxury product showrooms and boutique hotels to spa and fitness centers; from patisseries to the automotive showrooms - looking to fashion a new cocktail bar with a possibility to make a specialty coffee espresso, without placing anything to obstruct the design of a location. Modbar systems give you the freedom to build out a bar flow as unique as the exact vision for your space. Use combinations of espresso, steam, and pour-over as you like it!
