Commercial coffee machines are more complex than their domestic counterparts. That’s why first time buyers find it difficult to choose a machine from the extensive range available. Some of the essential features to consider are:
Size and capacity should be your primary consideration when buying coffee machines for commercial use. Those who have been operating a coffee business will have a rough idea as to the amount of coffee their business sells in an hour. If this is something you are not familiar with then we strongly recommend you analyse sales records as this will determine the type of coffee machine you need to buy. If you are planning to grow your business then you should multiply the hourly sales rate by the percentage growth you are forecasting. If you are unsure but expect growth, it’s better to have too much capacity than not enough.
Coffee machines can also be classified into the number of taps they have (and thus the volume of drinks that can be made simultaneously). These are 1 Group, 2 Group and 3 Group machines. This can go further and we are able to supply 4 Group and 5 Group machines but these tend to be rare. The picture below shows an example of a 3 Group coffee machine – notice how it has 3 coffee distribution taps
It is important to base your purchase on your targeted sales volume but you should also take into account the number of staff you plan to have working on a machine at any one time. If you only employ one person then it may be a bit adventurous to buy a 3 group machine as it is unlikely the staff member will be able to make use of all 3 distribution taps at the same time. If you’re going to use the coffee machine in an office, it is likely that our 1 Group machines will be enough to accomplish the job. If you’re planning to use your coffee machine to sell coffee to members of the public then you will likely want a 2 Group or 3 Group machine depending on the consumption needs of your customers.
Remember, whilst buying a smaller unit with lower capacity sounds like a good way to save money it could cost you more in the long run if you are not able to deliver to your customers. We live in a culture where people don’t like waiting for anything. If your business makes customers wait, your customers may be likely to choose an alternative business to purchase their cup of coffee from.
Choose the right size coffee machine and you will stand to reap long-term benefits for your business.
Each of the coffee machines we offer has a different learning curve in terms of operational functionality. It’s tempting to choose the simplest machine but this isn’t always the best choice. Machines that take a bit more getting used to may be more likely to produce a consistent high-quality cup of coffee each time it is used. The more high-tech machines remove the element of human error from your business so that customers get their perfect cup of coffee time after time.
For those looking for fast production to meet the demands of their growing business, automatic coffee machines are a good choice. These units can operate fast with little human intervention needed. They are also great at reducing the pressure at peak hours.
Each manufacturer makes their coffee machine the way they think a coffee machine should be made. This adds to the confusion for people who are new to the coffee industry but can be great for those who want to try something new.
We offer a variety of coffee machines from the leading manufacturers including:
We can provide full barista training on all our machines.
Last but certainly not least is the appearance of the coffee machine you choose. How’s it going to look in your restaurant or coffee shop? When choosing a machine, its great going for a machine that does the job well but you should also consider the aesthetical impact the machine will have.
Consider the following examples, if you’re operating a high-end restaurant that serves expensive food, your coffee machine should also look exceptional. Simply putting the kettle on isn’t going to cut it. Whereas if you need a coffee machine for an office or a low-end cafe then a less high-spec machine will likely be sufficient.
