The team at Newfield wanted to upgrade their coffee machine and liked the sleek style of the Vitro Max machines.
Emma Tracey, Office Co-ordinator at Newfield said: “The best feature of the Vitro Bean to Cup machine is the wide drink selection and the coffee tastes great.”
The Vitro ES Duo Max offers a comprehensive menu of espresso-based coffees, hot chocolate and PG leaf tea.
The two Vitro drinks machines are both very busy and high-capacity containers reduce the need to fill the machine – keeping downtime to a minimum.
Emma added: “We are pleased to be able to rely on regular service and maintenance assistance from the team of engineers at Mannvend. The new machine is user friendly, looks the part and the coffee tastes good.”

We simply hover over the button and a drink is dispensed. There’s no more hygienic way to make a drink. Tea drinkers are also happy as it makes delicious tea using PG Tips.

Jacksons & Motor Mall
Jacksons and Motor Mall opened in September 2018. Both dealerships are renowned for selling top quality vehicles from leading manufacturers, it was only natural they would set equally high standards when choosing their refreshment supplier. Jacksons are helping the environment too by using Vegware take-away coffee cups (with the Jacksons logo) that are compostable because they are made from plants, not plastic.
Jon Williams, Head of Business, Jacksons (Isle of Man), commented: “We were keen to work with trusted local suppliers, and MannVend was our first choice because of their history spanning more than half a century, commitment to quality and service (proven by ISO accreditation), and their excellent team of engineers who provide back-up every day of the week. The engineering back-up is especially important to us because both Jacksons and Motor Mall are open seven days a week. At Jacksons we are all about world class customer service and we want the whole experience to be a pleasure for our customers. We are a friendly business and there is nothing more friendly than having a sit down, a chat, and enjoying a really great cup of coffee. It was really important to us that we could offer one of the best coffees on the Island and this great machine, the Karisma, has enabled us to do that. It has been a massive success with our customers who love it, and our take away cups mean that they can have a great coffee on the way to work when they drop their cars off for service – especially if they are taking advantage of our free courtesy bus into Douglas town centre.”

Save time and money
On average, staff will take 5 minutes to make themselves a hot drink. For a company with 30 staff, this would equate to 7.5 hours downtime a day for 3 drinks per person. At £12 per hour wages, that’s £23,400 a year spent on time making drinks the traditional way...
...A drinks machine can make a delicious drink in 20 seconds.
People are demanding better quality coffee, or spending time away from the business to buy it. Bringing a bean to cup machine into your working environment changes all that – and creates a place where staff can engage with each other. Morale is always improved when fresh coffee is available in the workplace.
You can opt for our full servicing and supply package and we’ll take care of everything, ensuring your machine is kept clean, serviced for optimal performance and manage supplies.
