The last types of machine to consider if offering a "real" coffee are the ones that have been familiar for many years. Filter type coffee made with Pre ground coffee. The type of machines depends upon volumes required. For example, high volumes of coffee may be required for breakfast coffees in Hotels. Conference Centres would require high volumes for seminar coffee breaks. Also, Function facilities, Staff canteens and Theatres where a high demand for fresh coffee is required in a short space of time.
A wonderful traditional Italian concentrated coffee beverage is espresso. This is brewed by forcing hot water (195 degree Fahrenheit) at high pressure (90 bars) through special coffee ground to a consistency between extremely fine and powder. The appliances that are used to prepare the beverages are the espresso machines. The knowledge and efficiency in making the finest espressos is considered as a craft and the baristas who are adept in using the espresso machines professionally are regarded as skilled craftsmen in this light.
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.
Apart from all these structural and quality considerations, it is also worthwhile to consider the kind of coffee that you might want to serve. There are more than thousand varieties of coffee available right from the Café Mocha to the South Indian Filter Coffee; coffee with milk and without milk; coffee with sugar and without sugar; coffee with chocolate toppings or with a vanilla sundae on it. The possibilities are endless and so are the machines. There are different machines that are used to create various types of coffee and thus, as the methods of creating the coffee vary, the internal design and the make of the system also varies.
