Investing In a Commercial Espresso Machine For Your Business

posted in: Blog 0

Your restaurant or coffee shop provides a variety to your customers. When trying to decide the drink options to make available, a commercial espresso machine can be a great way to offer additional choices that can add value to your business. Still, it is important to understand that a commercial espresso machine is an investment. Here is what you need to know before you invest in your commercial espresso machine.

Understand What Impacts the Quality and Taste

Every commercial espresso machine can provide a great drink, but there are factors that impact the taste and quality of the beverages produced. The grind of your coffee, the water quality, temperature, and extraction time will all impact the espresso’s taste and quality. If you are looking for a commercial espresso machine, try to find one that will fit the people using it. For instance, a touchscreen can make it easier for your staff to create consistent drinks for every customer.

It is also essential to start training everyone on using the machine, even if the touchscreen options are not available.

Understand the Care Involved

Every commercial espresso machine has care instructions for the different areas that need to be cleaned daily, weekly, and monthly. If your staff does not follow through with those care instructions, then your machine will not last as long, and the quality of your drinks could suffer.

Therefore, keep in mind, purchasing a commercial espresso machine involves an investment of time so that it functions efficiently.

Know the Brewing Process

If you are going to have a high demand for espresso drinks, then you need a commercial espresso machine that can quickly recover pressure after one drink is brewed. Having the right number of boilers can make it possible to meet high demand times while providing a consistent product. Plus, with the right-sized boilers in place, then you will always have the hot water necessary to make your espresso drinks. There also need to be options available for you to adjust the pressure settings or make changes to impact the quality of the drinks.

Have Quality Water

Using a water filtration system, you can improve the quality of the water being used by your machine. The better quality of your water means an improved taste. Also, by filtering your water, you can reduce the sediment buildup in your commercial espresso machine and extend its life.

What to Look For In Your Machine

There are several factors that you need to look for in your machine, such as the quality of construction, the digital display, and whether it comes with any service or guarantee. Finally, you want to know if it is a semi-automatic or automatic machine. The fully automatic machine will have preset buttons for water doses.
