Godrej Minifresh 4400 specs and features:Godrej 4400

The Godrej might not be the best looking range of vending machines but they are small and compact. The most common “aesthetics” feedback we get is, “well it looks like a computer monitor” and to be honest that was our opinion also when we first saw it.

Despite its quirky looks the Minifresh is featureful for the price. The Minifresh 4400 features four canisters (all instant) as well as a hot water feature. The machine can be fitted with its own internal water tank or can be connected to a pump and drum system externally, thereby freeing up some space inside the unit.

Godrej Minifresh 5400

The Godrej 5400 is almost identical to that of the 4400 but features an extra canister and extra mixing bowl. Four canisters in vending machines is still the most popular configuration worldwide as it allows on to use coffee, sugar, milk and hot chocolate but an extra canister gives the possible option for soup or instant tea. One can also have a water tank separate or inside the unit (at the expense of an ingredient canister)

Godrej Minifresh 4400 vs Godrej Minifresh 5400 : My Two Cents

Both Godrej options are among the cheaper end of the coffee vending machine spectrum and offer a nice option for companies not wanting to spend the extra few thousand on a European made machine.

Both Godrej units are very similar and the only reason we would suggest going for the 5400 instead of the 4400 is if the extra canister is an absolute necessity (that is if you need to make all four types of hot beverages as well as tea or soup) If tea or soup is not a must then we would suggest saving a bit of money and rather going for the 4400.

When deciding on any coffee machine, we suggest testing it out first to make sure you are happy with the performance. To try your Godrej out now please complete your details below!
