One critical aspect to consider before buying a coffee machine for the restaurant, cafe of for any hospitality businesses is by first determining the size of the business and business needs. In this regard, a bigger restaurant is likely to have a more demand for coffee. Also important to remember is the brewing frequency. This is not a worry though because Commercial coffee machines come in various sizes.

Among the factors used to determine the size of a coffee machine is by establishing the number of coffee cups, the machine is able to dispense in a day. This is known as the cup\day ratio. Where the business is large, ne should consider going for a commercial coffee machine with a high cup/ day ratio.

A coffee machine with one group head will make 2 cups of coffee at a time while a 2-group coffee machine will make 4 coffees at the same time. To this extent, coffee machines have up to 5 groups head to choose from. The more the group heads, the more cups of coffee one can make in one instance.

Another factor, to consider is the material used in the construction of the machine. To this extent, stainless steel construction and aluminum are the most trusted material.

Further, brand choice is quite essential in selecting a commercial coffee machine. Another factor to consider before purchasing a coffee machine is the brand. In the kitchen industry, taking a gamble on the performance of a machine is not prudent. Brands that have been around for a while are better because they have been tested and proven. Further, reputable brands, come with long periods of guarantee such as a 12 months warranty for parts and labor. For instance, Boema commercial coffee machines have a warranty of one year. Boema brand is a coffee machine manufacturer that was established in 1956 and therefore a trusted brand.

A good water filtration system is Water filter is another factor to consider. Though water may look clean, it is rarely 100% clean. The purity of water will depend on several factors such as ones region. Certain regions tend to have more salty water than others do. To this extent, Salts are one of the minerals contained in water that make the water impure. Other minerals that are contained in water are magnesium and calcium. With a good filtration system, such minerals are filtered and therefore do not enter the coffee. In the event such minerals enter the coffee, the coffee taste is altered and so is the aroma.

In addition, water filters fitted in the coffee machine helps to prolong the life of the coffee machine. This is because the water filtration system helps reduce the chances of breakdowns that are causes by scale development. The Boema D- 1S10A Espresso Machine 1 Group Semi Auto for instance is designed with the AX5-TS triple action water filter for better filtration.

Moreover, consideration of the boiler size, capacity and performance is essential. A bigger boiler size means that there is more steam power steam power and hot water for making the coffee. Such a boiler can therefore supply enough steam and hot water for making many cups of coffee as compare to a machine with a smaller boiler. To this extent a 2 group coffee machine with a 11 liter boiler capacity such as Boema Package Deal 2016 model is ideal for a medium volume restaurant while a 3 group commercial coffee machine with a 20l boiler capacity such as Boema BCM.200.X1.3 Conti Coffee Machine is ideal for a high volume restaurant.
