  • Commercial Coffee Machines for Hospitality

    Finding the best coffee machine for your hospitality business depends on many factors, getting it right will lead to increased profits, efficiency and most importunately your customers coming back for more.

    Deciding between an automatic machine, vending or manual coffee machine depends on whether you have a trained barista dedicated to making coffee, a self-service environment or limited staff to manage the coffee delivery and monitor the machine.

    What is the right coffee machine for your hospitality business?

    Automatic coffee machines

    An automatic coffee machine is ideal for self-service in a canteen, clubrooms or a breakfast bar area. Many hotel chains use automatic coffee machines in their buffet areas or as a secondary machine after hours, once their barista has gone for the day, allowing guests to grab a coffee 24/7.

    WMF coffee machines are high capacity, quality machines made in Germany. They grind fresh beans into each cup, along with using fresh milk to provide a quality coffee all in a one-step operation. WMF machines also make hot chocolate, providing a total hot drink solution.

    An automatic machine can make from 50 up to 250 cups a day, with high capacity fast grinders and quality milk foam technology. The one-step operation makes them simple to use, untrained employees can prepare drinks easily or customers can make their own if in a self-serve area.

    Depending on usage you can have the machine plumbed into the water mains, this means less maintenance, as you are not having to refill the water tank. A tanked machine gives you the advantage of being portable.

    WMF - Automatic Commercial Coffee Machine

    Commercial vending machines

    Powder or freeze-dried milk options are a good fit if your hospitality business is in a remote area or left unattended for long periods of time, and there is no staff to re-fill the fresh milk or monitor the machine.

    Brands such as Necta specialize in vending operations with floor standing to bench top models available depending on the capacity you require. The Necta brand uses powder milk and vending chocolate and grinds fresh beans ensuring a great tasting coffee.

    Floor models will dispense cups, sugar, hot chocolate and coffee while benchtop models dispense drinks only. Capacity ranges from 120 drinks per day up to 600, to suit every organization.

    Choose between a water tank or plumbed model for limited maintenance.

    Vending machines offer a coin or pay-pass option should you wish to charge for your coffee.

    Semi-Automatic Espresso Machines

    Coffee Machines have come a long way in the past 5 years, manufacturers are now understanding the various business needs and designing technology to suit.

    The WMF Espresso Machine, closes the gap between a traditional espresso machine and an automatic, by measuring the brewing parameters, the coffee grind and automatically tampering the coffee. These superautomatic machines monitor when the ground coffee requires adjusting with 100% consistency.

    They look and act like a true barista machine, giving your business a professional look while allowing you flexibility, as staff do not need to be trained as a barista, or understand coffee grind, to use the machine.

    WMF-semi_automatic-coffee-machine WMF-Espresso Machine

    Commercial Espresso Machines

    If you have a trained barista an espresso machine is best, allowing you to extract fast and pour the very best espresso and offer every type of coffee imaginable for your discerning customers.

    If you are investigating espresso machines, first ask your preferred coffee roaster. Roasters such as Little Owl can arrange free on loan machines based on purchasing a certain number of coffee beans per week. A good coffee roaster will also offer to train your staff, it is in their best interests to ensure you are delivering great coffee and coming back for more.

    You may prefer to purchase your equipment, the most common machine brands in the industry are; Wega, Sab, and La Marzocco, along with coffee grinder brands Mazzer and Quamar.

    There are finance companies dedicated to the hospitality industry, check out Silver Chef they offer rent to own packages and will finance your coffee machine over a 3-year period.

    Take the time to investigate all the options open to you, ask questions about the support each supplier offers you. You want to know there is someone to call, should your machine breakdown, who has an expert team to resolve issues quickly and carries parts for fast servicing.

  • Quick guide to cleaning your automatic coffee machine

    I get asked a lot about looking after your coffee machine: Is it easy to clean? Does it take long? It is for the office so it needs to be easy to maintain.

    Brands such as: WMF, Frankie and Jura all have automatic cleaning cycles making them perfect for the commercial market, while at home Jura and Delonghi provide domestic coffee machines with automatic cycles.

    Steps to Cleaning Your Automatic Coffee Machine

    What does automatic cleaning mean?

    Most of the machine brands I have mentioned will run an automatic rinse cycle, this means the machine if not used within a certain period of time will automatically rinse water through the system to clean out coffee residue;

    It is important to note that it will not rinse the milk hose and milk steam functions of your coffee machine or give it a full clean with a tablet (much like using a dish tab in your dishwasher). The Machine will prompt you when a tablet or milk clean is required and although the machine will manage the clean cycle’s there are still a few steps to take as I have listed below.

    cleaning your coffee machine milk line

    Download your Automatic Machine Cleaning Quick Guide

    How often do I need to clean the milk hose with milk steam cleaner?

    Answer: Everyday Old milk sitting in the milk hose and in the machine can clog up the coffee machine and prevent it from functioning properly. This is why it’s important you clean the milk hose every day to prevent milk blockages.

    Tip: Simply add 30ml of milk steam cleaner or cappuccino cleaner to 200mls of water, (this creates your clean solution). Remove the milk hose from the milk container and place it into your clean solution then press (P) or program mode button, your coffee machine will have a clean the milk system function, simply follow the prompts.

    Another way to clean the milk hose, is to just click on the milk portion and milk foam functions to pull the liquid through the milk hose and machine. Repeat this step with fresh water.

    How often do I need to use cleaning tablets?

    changing your coffee machine filter

    Answer: Around every 250/300 cups or when your coffee machine prompts you to. All coffee machines need to be rinsed with a cleaning tablet to ensure the inner workings of the coffee machine are flushed out and coffee residue is removed.

    Tip: Check your machine or ask the manufacturer where the tablet should be used, for Jura coffee machines the tablet is placed in the top of the machine, in the ground decaf coffee compartment. Your machine will prompt you to confirm you have placed a tablet in the system before completing its clean cycle.

    Do I need to use a filter?

    Answer: Yes if you are filling your water tank manually, for example if it is not connected directly to your water mains and they have a water filter applied already, you need to use a filter in your coffee machine tank.

    How often should I change my filter?

    Answer: Your machine should prompt you to do so. It is usually with every 50 litres of water used or around every 1-2 months depending on how often you are using your coffee machine.

    Tip: Not all machines take the same filter so be sure to check the machine model when purchasing a new one. The filter is placed in your water tank.

    By taking the time to run these quick maintenance checks and clean your automatic machines milkhose and milk steam functions each day, you will have a healthy coffee machine that will not only produce better-tasting coffee, it will last longer too.

    Psst... don't forget to add great tasting fresh coffee beans!
