“Our staff are really engaged with the TopBrewers at MoneySuperMarket; they love the premium quality drinks and the interaction using the app, which is so intuitive. The Scanomat team provided some great advice on the implementation and drink selection, which means that we now have all the fun stuff as well as a stylish system that consistently delivers a fantastic range of speciality coffees”.

TopBrewer experience is ‘so’ MoneySuperMarket for coffee-loving staff at their new London office
Having outgrown their previous office, MoneySuperMarket, a FTSE250 listed company, has relocated into news offices at 1 Dean Street in London, occupying three floors of this dynamic modern office development.
The new workspace is set over three floors with a light-filled quadruple height reception that makes a real statement in reflecting their brand. TopBrewers are installed in the communal kitchen areas on each floor, where refreshments are available to all employees and visitors.
Chris Bailey-Jones, Group Office Manager at MoneySuperMarket, talks about their decision to take up the TopBrewer experience:
“We had previously seen the TopBrewer at other offices and loved the sleek design and app-controlled operation so, when our designer from BDG Architects recommended it, we were keen to see it in action.”
As a tech-based company, MoneySuperMarket was attracted to the modern TopBrewer aesthetics and smart technology but needed the confidence that it would consistently deliver premium quality drinks for their ‘coffee-hungry’ employees throughout the day.
“Following the TopBrewer demonstration at another customer site, we were really blown away by the quality and range of premium drinks, ease of use and maintenance and the cloud-based system management technology.”
Instead of a large bulky table-top machine taking up precious counter space, TopBrewer is a unique, minimalistic and high-spec coffee brewer which fits into any space; the brewing unit sits under the counter with an elegant and streamlined swan-neck tap on the surface.
TopBrewer enables the user to be their own barista and customise drinks to their particular taste using the app on an iPad or their own phone and creates a real focal point as part of a social hub for staff to interact and share ideas.
The new, flexible workplace at MoneySuperMarket includes 25 collaborative spaces, including one-to-one areas and non-bookable offices. The kitchen areas on each floor create communal hubs where the TopBrewers fit seamlessly into the open and inclusive working environment that encourages staff interaction.
So how is the TopBrewer experience? Chris concludes:
“Our staff are really engaged with the TopBrewers at MoneySuperMarket; they love the premium quality drinks and the interaction using the app, which is so intuitive. The Scanomat team provided some great advice on the implementation and drink selection, which means that we now have all the fun stuff as well as a stylish system that consistently delivers a fantastic range of speciality coffees”.
