Another advantage of this type of brewer is that everyone can brew the kind of coffee that they like. If someone in the house is a bold coffee drinker and another likes a milder type, they are not stuck drinking something that wasnt their choice. I have family gatherings at my home regularly, and coffee after dinner is commonplace. Everyone is very pleased with the fact that they can choose whatever they would like for their coffee.
The first requirement that you must take into account when you decide to go in for a coffee machine is whether the machine must be large scale or small scale. Now, this choice depends on the kind of set up that you have in mind. Suppose you decide to go in for a book stall or a gaming plaza, then a small scale machine with a capacity for one cup of coffee at a time would be enough. But, in case, you have an idea of running a coffee shop with exclusive coffee options then it would be wise to invest in a large scale coffee machine that would have the capacity of about four to five cups at a time.
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.
In 1938, Milan coffee bartender, Achille Gaggia filed a Patent for a steam-free coffee machine. Unlike its predecessors, Gaggias design used a revolutionary piston mechanism which forced water through the coffee grounds at high pressure. It was his quest for the perfect espresso in 1930s Milan that gave birth to one of Italys most iconic brands, and heralded the production of the Espresso as we know it. Traditional Espresso Coffee Machines are the type you see in Café Nero, Costa Coffee etc.
