But how do traditional coffee machines work? An espresso machine works by pumping hot water through the bed of espresso (fine) ground coffee in a ‘group handle’ at a very high pressure of around 9 bar or 150 pounds per square inch in order to extract a very intense and aromatic cup of espresso – this is the basis of the modern speciality coffee drinks line-up.
Making a flat white, cappuccino or caffe latte involves heating and/or foaming the milk (we generally recommend semi-skimmed) with a cappuccino having more tiny air bubbles as foam on the top – this is generally done with one of the machine steam arms and via careful control of the steam valve.
We offer coffee machine rental of espresso coffee machines via a 3 year lease-rental finance deal with respected finance brokers to spread out the cost and save you tax.
Modern commercial bean to cup coffee machines have a place in coffee shops where the consistency and high quality flat white, caffe latte and cappuccino that they offer at the touch of a button is very valuable – especially in garden centres, motorway services, universities and so on; below you can see the mighty Franke A600 FoamMaster bean to cup machine:
We also offer a broad range of 8 types of espresso coffee beans and 8 types of fresh filter coffees including Fairtrade and Organic coffees along with quality teas, hot chocolate, sugars, double-wall paper cups – goods are dispatched all over the UK by courier for next day delivery.
