Japan joins the countries offering free coffee trials to hospitals

At JDE, we have a way to say ‘thank you’ to the frontline heroes of COVID-19.  Following the example of Germany and France, our partner in Japan has stepped in to help local hospitals. The UCC team donated Cafitesse to frontline doctors and health workers battling the pandemic.

Our Japanese colleagues offered hospitals 3 months’ worth of free Cafitesse equipment, coffee and Café Milc. The Cafitesse machines were placed at the two most prestigious medical facilities, employing more than 2,500 health workers and staff each. Nearly all machines were installed in staff rooms. 

Doctors and staff expressed their gratitude and were pleased with the Cafitesse experience. Hardly surprising, they really appreciated the great convenience and hygiene of the solution:

The ease of Cafitesse was something we as doctors really appreciated. Especially regarding the ease of cleaning and refilling!”. 

Easy maintenance and hygienic: we don’t have to touch many things”. 

Based on the trials, the UCC team and the two medical centres will be discussing further collaboration at the beginning of August.
