Traditional Coffee Machine Variations & Configurations

Our traditional coffee machines encompass a range of exceptional options made to meet the demands of high-volume coffee establishments.

These commercial coffee makers are thoughtfully designed with intuitive controls, allowing you to adjust and tailor your brew to perfection. Adjustable settings, temperature control, and programmable features put the power of customisation in your hands, ensuring every cup suits your customers' unique preferences. We also offer 2 and 3 group machine configurations, depending on how many shots you need to produce at a time.

One of our most popular commercial coffee makers is a semi-automatic industrial espresso machine. Offering a balance between automated features and manual control, this machine allows baristas to manipulate variables like grind size, extraction time, and water temperature to achieve the perfect shot of espresso. Alternatively, a fully automatic espresso machine streamlines the brewing process, making it ideal for busy environments where consistency and speed are crucial.

Commercial Traditional Coffee Machines — FAQs

When buying a coffee machine for barista use, you want to be as informed as possible before making your choice. Below are our answers to some commonly asked questions about our traditional espresso maker collection.

Should I get a 3 group or 2 group espresso machine?

The group designation refers to the number of brewing heads on an espresso machine. Each group can produce 2 espresso shots at a time, meaning that 2 group machines can make 4 shots at a time, while 3 group coffee machines can create up to 6 shots at a time.

When choosing between these two options, your decision will be based on how many cups of coffee your establishment needs to make.

Other factors to consider when shopping for an espresso coffee machine for commercial use are the number of steam wands it features and whether it has a single or dual boiler system. A dual hot water system has independent brewing and steaming boilers, meaning you can adjust heat settings separately for increased temperature control.

What are the best traditional machines for coffee shops?

If you're looking for traditional coffee machines for cafes, hotels with in-house baristas, bars, or restaurant venues, a 2 group or 3 group professional barista machine is best.

These traditional espresso makers are designed to produce higher volumes of espresso than single-group machines. With two or three brewing groups, baristas can prepare multiple drinks simultaneously, increasing efficiency during peak hours and reducing customer waiting times.

Bean to cup vs traditional coffee machines — what's the difference?

Traditional coffee machines and bean to cup machines are both types of ground coffee machines that pair well with bulk-buy coffee beans. However, they offer distinctly different approaches to coffee brewing, each with its own set of advantages.

Traditional coffee machines, or espresso machines, allow for a more hands-on and customisable experience. With these machines, baristas have greater control over almost every variable, resulting in a highly nuanced cup of coffee.

Bean to cup machines provide convenience, speed and automation. These machines usually have integrated grinders, allowing you to use fresh whole coffee beans without needing to operate a professional barista coffee machine. With a simple push of a button, bean to cup machines handle everything from grinding the beans to brewing the coffee.

Bean to cup machines work well in office and retail environments and are an excellent choice for those seeking convenience and consistency. On the other hand, a traditional coffee maker requires more skill and manual effort but is a key factor in drawing a crowd to almost any good coffee shop.
