WHY A LEVER ESPRESSO MACHINE?

01.

WOW FACTOR

Competition is tough and customer expectations are rising all the time when it comes to their coffee experience and so visual impact along with great coffee will make you stand out from the rest. Without a doubt, a traditional lever espresso machine will create that extra WOW factor for your business.

02.

IMPRESS YOUR CUSTOMERS

They are strikingly beautiful and will often lead to lots of questions from your customers as to how it works. This is a great opportunity to share knowledge and enhance your customers coffee experience.

03.

QUALITY

Using a lever machine has true romantic connotations in the world of coffee as its use is much more about the “feel” of the coffee than other automatic machines. The barista has so much more effect on the end result and so these machines can really produce superior coffee.

04.

EASY TO MAINTAIN

There is so much less to ‘break’ on a hand pulled lever espresso machine and so they are much cheaper to maintain. The more automated a machine becomes, the more we are relying on computers and software to allow for the extraction to occur and therefore the more that can go wrong. This is where a lever machine really excels as there is very little electronically going on. Also there is no back-flushing required at the end of the day to clean the machine.

05.

SILENT EXTRACTION

No noisy electrical buzzing to accompany your coffee making. A clean and silent extraction – music to any coffee lover’s ears. The ideal machine for intimate settings such as a restaurant or hotel.

SETTING UP A COFFEE SHOP

We work with a range of businesses from large established hotels, garden centres and cafes, through to small, independent coffee shops. We also work with many start up businesses and are always happy to offer advice and support. We find we get asked the same sort of questions again and again and so we have put together a few considerations into various blogs on this website about the many elements of setting up a cafe.

From our perspective, whether you business is new or established, great coffee always makes good sense. The market has changed and right now, the single most important factor and one that will make the most difference on its own, it’s your coffee offering.
