“When we first saw the TopBrewer in a showroom in London, we were amazed by its performance and the quality of coffee. We knew it would be perfect for our hydration zone as the unit is fully plumbed in and creates maximum counter space.” Reuben Mitchell, Marketing Manager at Armorgard
Armorgard selects TopBrewer for high-tech refreshment area in new global head office
The state-of-the-art offices were fully refurbished by office fit-out contractors Axis House with a workplace designed to embrace Armorgard’s agile working concept, to attract and retain staff. The refreshment area lends itself to interaction and collaboration where staff catch up over a coffee throughout the day.
The new office includes a stylish, high-tech refreshment area where the TopBrewer is seamlessly integrated into Spacestor’s Teapoint, taking advantage of the unique TopBrewer design, with the main brewing unit housed beneath the counter.

“When we first saw the TopBrewer in a showroom in London, we were amazed by its performance and the quality of coffee. We knew it would be perfect for our hydration zone as the unit is fully plumbed in and creates maximum counter space.”
The TopBrewer system delivers a wide range of drinks brewed to order with flash-heated water, freshly-ground speciality-grade coffee beans and fresh milk.
The TopBrewer provides a truly personalised experience with its iPad-controlled drink selection and customisation and also offers hot chocolate, hot water and chilled water.
“Everyone is really impressed by the TopBrewer – we love to show the customisation and the phone app to clients; ‘ask us for any drink you want!’ we say. Every client responds with ‘Wow! We need one of those’ and ask us for the details.”
The fresh milk lines are flushed after every brew, eliminating the need for harsh cleaning chemicals and the daily cleaning routine is a simple 1-minute automatic clean cycle that covers the whole machine and rinses both brewer and milk lines thoroughly.
“The TopBrewer is so easy to clean and maintain compared to previous systems that were much more time-consuming”, adds Reuben.
Customers are supported by a team of TopBrewer specialist service technicians and baristas who are on hand both in person and over the telephone, as Reuben explains:
“The service provided by the Scanomat UK team is incredible. Any issues can usually be resolved over the ‘phone. On the rare occasion that we do need an engineer, they are so quick to respond.”
Simon Bracken, Managing Director & Co-Founder at Scanomat UK & Ireland, comments:
“We congratulate Armorgard on embracing an agile working concept and design for their fabulous new global head office. Compared to traditional table-top units, the TopBrewer’s unique under-counter design has enabled them to maximise space whilst offering a premium coffee experience in a collaborative working environment.”
