Coffee & Water

Overview & Opportunity

Blackberry Hearing is the largest Irish-owned hearing aid provider in the country, with 40 audiology clinics nationwide.

With a partial refurb at their headquarters in County Kildare on the cards, Blackberry Hearing approached Liquidline to provide a solution to their commercial coffee and water needs, having received a positive recommendation for Liquidline from a business contact.

We invited Blackberry Hearing’s General Manager, Matt, and Head of Data, Luke, (both self-confessed coffee lovers!) to our Dublin showroom where we were able to demo a number of our best-selling coffee machines and water dispensers, as well as host a cupping session (the technical term for coffee tasting) to show off our favourite coffee blends.


Following a thorough consultation, Blackberry Hearing chose the Schaerer Club for their new office. This Swiss manufactured bean to cup coffee machine grinds beans on demand for the freshest, most aromatic cup of coffee. Combined with a sophisticated automatic fresh milk foaming system, and an additional hopper for chocolate powder, the Schaerer Club provides barista style speciality coffee for Blackberry Hearing’s team and customers.

What really appealed to the team at Blackberry Hearing though is the flexibility offered by the Schaerer Club, which allows customisation of beverage size, flavour intensity, milk foam quantity and more.

Compact and stylish with a 7-inch touchscreen, the Schaerer Club looks perfectly at home in Blackberry Hearing’s modern new office kitchenette.

Alongside the new commercial coffee machine, we’ve also provided a freestanding Oasis Kalix water cooler offering ambient and chilled drinking water to keep their team and customers hydrated.

We will continue to support Blackberry Hearing by supplying everything they need to create the perfect beverages, such as coffee beans, cleaning solutions, decaf pods and more, as well as servicing and maintenance as required.


“We’re all really big fans of the new coffee machine – even some of the slightly pickier members of the team can’t fault the machine or the coffee.

“We love the flexibility of the Club as it allows us to adjust the brewing settings to prepare a coffee that’s exactly to our taste. We especially enjoy the hot chocolate – it’s extremely addictive!

“We would definitely recommend other businesses have a plumbed-in coffee solution as it saves so much faff and mess. It’s been a real game-changer in the office.”

– Matt Gleeson, General Manager, Blackberry Hearing
