Coloranino® FAQ


Here all questions are answered briefly and concisely




What does the Coloranino print with?


The Coloranino® prints with approved food colouring. We offer two different textures: EC 1333/2008 compliant for use within the EU; and FDA approved for use within the USA.


What beverages can the Coloranino® print on?


The Coloranino® can print on almost all smooth surfaces with a maximum diameter of 10 cm. Coffee, latte macchiato, cappuccino, espresso, beer, milkshakes, smoothies, pastries or desserts such as ice cream or puddings – there are no limits to creativity!


Which motifs can I print with the Coffee Printer?


With the Coloranino® you can print all kinds of motifs. Be it selfies, company logos, photos or slogans, everything is possible!


Can the Coloranino® also prepare drinks?


No, the Coloranino® is a beverage printer and can decorate the surface, but not produce beverages itself.


Does printing with the Coloranino® distort the taste of my drink?


No, our food colouring is tasteless. The enjoyment of your drinks is therefore not negatively affected.


Are the cartridges refillable or replaceable?


The cartridges can be exchanged with one hand. Replacement cartridges can be easily reordered via our webshop. As food colouring, like comparable food, is subject to an expiry date, we do not refill already used cartridges, but only offer newly filled cartridges.


How many prints are possible with one cartridge?


Approximately 800 prints are possible, but this may vary up or down depending on the size of the print area.


How must the cartridges be stored?


The cartridges should be stored upright and at room temperature.


What colours can the Coloranino® print in?


Our Coloranino can print in different colours: chocolate brown, black, red, yellow, blue. The print is always monochrome in one of the chosen colours. On request, we can also compose any colour you like.


Do I need an app to transfer images?


No, our Coloranino® does not require an additional app. We offer three interfaces: 1) QR Code technology for online image transfer, 2) Selfie-Cam for the creation of live photos (on-site and offline), 3) Built-in memory for storing standard images.


Can I use different glasses/cups?


Yes, the built-in sensor automatically detects the beverage surface, from cappuccino to wheat glass. Please note that glasses in particular are filled up to the top edge of the container (e.g. with beer or milk foam).


What about the warranty?


We offer a 12 month warranty on our beverage printer and offer you exclusive customer service all around.


Do I need trained personnel to install the printer?


No, the great advantage of the Coloranino® is its intuitive handling. The Coloranino® is pre-configured as a plug & play device and is ready for immediate use in a few minutes.
