From Russia, with love – The perfect coffee now available onboard popular river cruises

Top-3 Russian cruise operators choose Cafitesse

With the river cruise season fast approaching, our official dealer in Russia – the Gourmeta Company – clinched not one but three deals for Cafitesse. They were asked to install Cafitesse machines on board the cruise ships of the three largest riverboat operators in Russia. 


Perfect coffee for a perfect holiday

River cruises are popular during summer in Russia! Sailing the Volga, Oka and Kama rivers, guests enjoy a laid-back couple of days. On average, boats can host 180 to 350 people, and cruises usually last between 4 to 10 days. Boats offer hotel services, with full board and entertainment.


96 Cafitesse machines successfully installed

No less than 96 Cafitesse machines were installed by our team. The main challenge was to install all machines simultaneously: the river cruise season starts at the beginning of May for all operators. Ordering of the machines, installation and fine-tuning had to be done within a tight time schedule. We succeeded in fulfilling our promises and had the Cafitesse machines up and running well in time for the busy holiday season!

We are proud to be able to say that operators Mostourflot, Ortodoks and Vodokhod are now serving perfect cups of coffee onboard their fleets!
