A common coffee machine is the espresso machine. These machines make coffee by using steam that is pumped through tightly packed finely ground coffee beans. The result of this process varies according to how the operator chooses to make it, which depends on the options available for their machine. These machines vary from one that simply pumps steam at Bar 15 pressure through a porta filter that holds ground coffee to programmable ones. Programmable machines will grind your coffee, make your espresso your way and even dispose the spent grounds and then sends a clean rinse through the machine. Some machines may have other attachments to make cappuccinos and lattes. Some machines similar to espressos use a higher pressure of 19 bars.
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.
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.
