Foodservice establishments typically serve a variety of beverages, like coffee and soft drinks. By purchasing adequate coffee and beverage equipment, you can add efficiencies in your beverage and coffee making process. Coffee isn’t the only hot beverage that can be better prepared with appropriate equipment; other hot beverages like tea, cappuccinos and lattes can also be prepared quickly. The type of commercial beverage equipment you invest in will determine what hot and cold beverage you are able to produce.
Range, capacity, and capability are the three areas you should consider when choosing your commercial beverage equipment. If you are operating a restaurant that has coffee on the menu, you may wish to produce specialty coffee products, such as cappuccinos and espressos. Buying cafe equipment, such as a high-quality coffee brewer and espresso machine, and a coffee grinder, will allow you to make such products. Espresso coffee equipment can be purchased in both manual and semi-automatic formats. Coffee grinders are available in big and small forms, with the smaller options taking a bit longer to process coffee beans.
If you are in the market for cold beverage equipment, commercial drink dispenser, or ice dispensers may be good options for you. With a commercial bubbler, you can fill the machine with various beverages and either serve your customers or allow them to serve themselves.
When choosing commercial coffee and beverage equipment, you must also consider output capacity. Depending on the type of foodservice business you operate, you may need more or less capacity. Think about the number of drinks you will serve per day, and prep time to understand your equipment needs.
Whether you are opening a coffee shop or simply looking to expand your beverage menu in your restaurant, choosing the right commercial coffee equipment for the job can make a world of difference.
