There is a separate Grinder, which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days, the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more. Training is required to ensure quality and consistency.
Also, with the pod technology, there is no guessing or measuring of coffee for this type of maker. The pods of coffee are premeasured and all you have to do is place the pod in the machine and select the size cup you would like to have. The clean up is very easy as well. You just open the arm on the machine and discard the pod when the machine has finished its cycle. Another advantage of a single serve maker is the fact that the coffee is fresh every time. How many times have you gone back to the coffee pot to refill your cup and the coffee tastes stale or burnt? This happened all the time at my home. There were many days that I would feel guilty if I just had one cup then threw the rest down the drain because it tasted bad. Since you only brew coffee one cup at a time with this type of machine, there is no more wasting coffee.
With practice, staff will be able to provide customers with a superb range of popular speciality coffees. Coffee making in this way is looked on very much as an "Art form." The size and complexity of espresso machines vary. Choosing the right machine to suit business requirements is important and should be given consideration. A person formally trained in coffee preparation and has served coffee on a full time basis for a number of years are known as a "Barista." The word comes from the Italian name for a male or female bartender.
The special espresso coffee machines of the day are also capable of producing the special cappuccino, latte and ordinary coffee drinks. These special coffee makers deliver rich and nearly syrupy espresso beverage as there is extraction and emulsifying of oils found in ground coffee. With usage of the superior espresso machines the ideal double shot of espresso should be taking only between 25 to 30 seconds to make ready the espresso drink from the time the pump of the coffee maker is turned on.
