Don’t Even Move the Cup to Get the Drink You Want

Everyone has a favorite kind when it comes to coffee. Some like it milky, while others want a strong brew which kickstarts a hard day at work. Catering to everyone’s taste can be an uphill task. With the Giga X7 on your side it won’t be. This coffee machine from the Jura stable brings the advantages of the Jura name, making it ideal for small to medium establishments. You can serve as many as 180 cups of different kinds of hot drinks daily. Unlike many coffee machines, it will give you tea and hot chocolate apart from specialty coffees. In fact, its dual fluid systems allow the Giga X7 to make two black or milk coffees at the same time.

The power steam wand automatically heats and froths milk into barista quality foam at your selected temperature while it makes espressos. It can also simply heat milk for chocolates. Alternately, you can draw plain hot water for tea. In the Giga coffee machine milk is automatically drawn from the fridge, heated and frothed into fine texture foam for café quality milk coffees at the touch of a button. The fine foam milk system can produce a café quality milk texture which makes preparing a latte macchiato as easy as nodding. Its dual ceramic disk grinders can grind up to 16 grams of coffee so that you can dispense your coffee non-stop through the day without stopping to refill.

The low wear ceramic disks produce a finer grind, without heating the coffee and with less variation than in most beans to cup machines for better coffee extraction. The fully automatic operation ensures that just about anybody who knows how to press buttons can brew a delicious cup of coffee. Hygiene is always a concern for those who have to deal with food and beverages. The integrated cleaning, rinsing and decalcifying programs of the Giga X7 guarantee TUV-certified hygiene. The new TFT display makes maintenance easy since you get maintenance status prompts. With a 25 month guarantee backing it, you should cast aside your doubts and go for it.

Creating the Perfect Cuppa Can Be Simple

You too can get barista quality coffee at will. When you invest in a coffee machine in London , check out the options first. Some of the things you may look for are single or multi cup brew, which is drip or filtered coffee to give you cappuccino, espresso or coffee latte. It should froth and heat milk, have a pause option and thermal carafes to keep coffee hotter for longer. If you are a purist, then you will probably think that only the cup of coffee which is brewed from beans to cup can be perfect. The fragrance of fresh roasted beans, ground to just the right texture and brewed is simply incomparable. Those which have adjustable brew temperatures are better since not everyone wants to be scalded when drinking coffee.

Since coffee machines come in varying styles, choose the one that suits your style. Few people drink every kind of specialty coffee and it makes better sense to choose a machine that brews your favorite kind. As for the froth delivered ensure it is fantastic: creamy, no spluttering and aesthetically beautiful. However, if you need the machine for your office or a commercial outlet, then look for coffee vending machines . Opt for one that is connected to the mains rather than the kind which requires periodic refilling. Keep in mind that the quality of the coffee can be impacted by water quality. There are machines which have in-built filters for water, not just for the grounds.

Check the different configurations available and opt for the one which really suits your needs, even if its price is slightly beyond your budget. You should be able to recover its cost from the popularity you get for being able to service the needs of your customers. When you have the right equipment, making and enjoying a premium cup of coffee is a lot easier. Just remember, automatic machines simply cannot duplicate the texture of a manually brewed espresso. An expensive machine is not necessarily the best machine since a higher priced machine is usually one with more complicated to use gadgets.

Coffee Lovers Deserve a Machine that is Serious about Coffee Quality

Coffee lovers the world over are very serious about the quality of the brew that they are served up.

This is a small bean to cup system ideal for a domestic setting or even very small offices, reception areas and small meeting rooms. It is a small bean to cup coffee machine that will produce a cracking espresso or coffee as well as milk based drinks such as latte and cappuccino.

However, if you need something bigger then you could look at something like the Roma Bean to Cup which is brand new to the drinks market. It is what all table top machines should be measured against since in addition to a great bean to cup offering, it has the option of instant drinks as well. If you want to provide a decaf option or don’t want to use beans all the time, this excellent machine allows you the flexibility to do just that. Neon-effect backlighting helps make your machine stand out from the crowd.

Its illuminated cup station ensures that no one can miss it even in a crowd and it packs all the advantages of a fully automatic machine.

If you are not too sure of which model is the most appropriate for the needs of your office, then you could look at coffee machine rental options. Typically the costs of rental and servicing the vending machines may be higher than if dealing with the vending companies direct. Make sure that you rent the machine with a maintenance contract that covers all repairs. Another option could be to pay for each cup you drink. That way the per-cup-price will cover the machine rental, the maintenance, the consumables and any staff attached to fill and clean them.

Refurbished Jura Coffee Machines In London

If you are looking for a bean to cup coffee machine that uses fresh milk but are unsure as to exactly what you may require then our range of refurbished Jura equipment could be right for you.  We can offer these refurbished machines on shorter term rental basis rather than longer term leases.  The cost is also significantly lower.  These options allow you to rent a machine on a cheap and short term basis but with no major commitment in terms of the length of the contract.  Alternatively if you are looking to purchase on of these systems then this is a cheap way to do it.  We always supply the same warranty with refurbished machines as we do with new so you have nothing to worry about on that score either.

Currently available are some of the very popular Jura Impressa X9 machines.  These are push button systems that will deliver you a cappuccino, latte or espresso.  There are two bean hoppers allowing for the use of two different types of coffee bean.  These can either be blended by the X9 to create your own unique flavour or can be kept seperate to allow for example a decaffeinated and a caffeinated cappuccino.  The Impressa X9 has automated cleaning and de-scaling cycles that make the maintenance of the equipment as easy as possible.  This machine also has an adjustable spout allowing for the use of various sizes of cups and glasses.  Milk fridges and cup warmers are availbale for use with this system.  We have found that the Impressa X9 is at home in many different situations from offices and meeting rooms to coffee shops and restaurants.  We would recommend that the Imperssa X9 is used in sites wishing to produce up to 100 coffees per day.  It does have a hot water option but is not designed for use as a boiler.  If there is a requirement for large amounts of hot water we would recommend the use of a proper hot water boiler.  If you do try and use your Jura coffee machine to do this you will find that it simply will not cope with the demand.

Currently we can also supply refurbished Jura XS90 machines.  These are the smaller brother to the Impressa X9 and only feature one bean hopper so only one type of coffee bean can be used (although there is a facility to use a shot of ground coffee in order to provide decaffeinated options for all of the drinks).  Unlike the the Impressa X9 there are two drinks stations: one for the milk based drinks and one for espresso and black coffees.  The process itself is completely automatic and takes only one press of a button to produce a cappuccino but you must make sure that you place your cup under the correct nozzle.  As with the X9 the cleaning and de-scaling process is completely automated.  As it has a lower capacity we would recommend that the XS90 is used it sites wishing to produce up to 50 coffees per day.

Both of these machines will create a lovely coffee and both are simple to use.  If you would like to learn more or would like demonstration of either please call the office.  If you are looking for a different machine in the Jura range it is worth asking as we often have alternative units available.

Wastage Will Be The Least Of Your Worries

The single serve coffee machines are special. There is no leftover waste and little-to-no preparation or clean-up.

Use Products You Love and Trust

People have come to depend on coffee vending machines to stay caffeinated all day. Even those who don’t drink coffee but prefer drinking tea, hot chocolate or soup often get it from these machines. If it is in office, then you are likely to get to know the preferences of the users and can stock products accordingly. On the other hand, if you have set up your machine at some other location like a hospital or transport terminal where customers differ everyday you have no way to gauge what their requirements are. So the best way to deal with such a situation is to stock it with products you love and trust.

Owners of coffee shops often can’t decide which models are the most appropriate. In such a situation they should keep in mind what their customers are likely desire. Vending machines don’t dispense just hot drinks or other beverages; they dispense various kinds of snacks too. If your vending machine is placed in a school don’t expect healthy foods to sell as well as they would in a work environment with health conscious adults coming for a quality snack. Crackers are also a good selling vending machine item. With vending companies bringing high technology to their machines such as employing soft-drop and conveyor technology that allows them to vend such things as fruit and glass bottles, the business has become more health and environmentally conscious.

Whether your machines vend coffee or snacks or cold drinks, you can always get vending machines for hire when you need more machines or are trying out new locations. Some of the things you need to look into before agreeing to terms of hire include that the bill changer should be a well-built electronic one, preferably one that is a 4-way accepter. This provides certain flexibility in pricing and purchasing which adds to the ease of use. Look at the aesthetics and ensure the machine has a stylish design, with a good application of colors or paints. People do get judge utility by looks even if that is somewhat irrational.

Multiple Options Before You: Take Your Pick

You want something that is both functional and has aesthetic value whether it is one of the many instruments you use in the office and home or something as prosaic as vending machines in London . This is because we tend to feast with our eyes before we actually drink or eat something. It is this phenomenon that restaurateurs and coffee shop owners capitalize on. When you have acquired the vending machine that you want at a good location then it devolves upon you to keep it supplied with merchandise which is much in demand. The seller will normally give you the details on where and how to get the supplies you need.

By looking over the financial records of someone who is already in the vending business you can see at a glance how you can make more money at which location. It will also give you an idea of the kind of turnover you can expect from specific products. On the other hand, if you think that you stand to earn more money by investing in a coffee machine in London , then cast around to see which would be most appropriate for your budget and the clientele you are likeliest to be servicing. The things that should score highest are durability, with avant-garde technology, innovation, simplicity and versatility.

In the field of coffee making machines you have a choice of the drip coffee makers as well as vacuum coffee makers. The vacuum type is really suited to the coffee purist who has the time to create the perfect cuppa as they are a bit like a chemistry set and can be as simple or complicated as you want it to be. The type of coffee you want therefore influences the type of machine you choose. You will also have to consider the capabilities of the equipment. You should determine just how much coffee the machine would need to produce at any given time. You do not want to buy a complicated model that people will be fumbling to operate during a busy lunch rush. Ease of operation and maintenance have to be concerns when you shop for your coffee machine.
