Please see below a comment from Henry Howard Finance.
Henry Howard Finance have leased vending machines to customers who will have sourced consumables and maintenance arrangements with Espresso Essential. Henry Howard Finance became aware that the directors of Espresso Essential filed in the High Court a notice of intention to appoint Administrators. We have no knowledge of the circumstances leading to this decision but are saddened to hear of the collapse of Espresso Essential. We clearly do not know the intentions of any appointed Administrators regarding the future of Espresso Essential. Clearly our customers have a finance agreement with us so we urge them to make alternative arrangements for consumables should they choose. We have written to all impacted customers, our approachable customer support team are also happy to answer any questions from Espresso Essential customers in the meantime.
