Other similar coffee machines use a tube in the center to pump the water to the top where it drops back down over the coffee grounds. They are coffee percolators and coffee urns and come in varying sizes. Urns have greater serving sizes that go as high as 60 cups for home use. Another coffee machine makes coffee by putting coffee in the bottom of a cylinder, which is usually glass. A filter the size of the inside of the cylinder is then pressed down to the bottom producing the coffee. These coffee machines have names such as French press, water press, a press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger or cafetière.
The following information is intended to give general information on the range of commercial coffee machines that are used in the Coffee Industry today. I apologise in advance if Im Teaching you how to suck eggs. Having been a consultant involved in the Coffee World for some years, advising clients and helping them choose the right equipment to suit their needs.

Staff want the same standard of coffee that they get from their favourite coffee shop. Also these days, many people have domestic Bean to Cup machines in their kitchen. A Bean to Cup machine grinds the coffee beans to make espresso coffee on demand. These systems also have built in automatic milk foamers that are able to produce steam and foamed milk for producing Lattes, Cappuccinos and other milk based drinks simultaneously. The process of producing coffee from a Bean to Cup machine differs from a traditional espresso machine. The brewer in a Bean to Cup coffee machine works similarly to a Cafétiere. The coffee beans are ground into a brewing chamber and then a ram forces the hot water through the coffee, extracting the espresso coffee. A traditional espresso machine creates pressure that forces water through "group head" to produce the espresso coffee.
