Commercial Espresso Coffee Machines

Commercial Espresso Coffee Machines are used all over the world. They mainly originate from Italy and many companies in Italy still manufacture and produce the majority of machines sold throughout the globe. Some have expanded into other countries and have set up manufacturing facilities there but many still export to distributers or subsidiary companies based overseas. The practical use of these Commercial Espresso Coffee Machines is wherever large quantities of coffee are consumed and a member of staff is available to dispense the drinks. Basic training on the usage of the machine is normally given on installation although full barista training is advisable where specialist coffees are an option. The machines come in various sizes, those venues that only require under 50 coffees per day but want to have a good freshly ground coffee to offer their customers would use a one group machine. The alternative to this would be a Bean to Cup machine which although it would give more options such as Hot Chocolate and dispensed drinks at the touch of a button doesn’t normally offer a fresh milk or cream facility and would be considerably more expensive to purchase. The Commercial Espresso Coffee Machines most commonly used in the UK are two group machines which are perfectly adequate to cover most restaurants, cafes and bars, even busy ones, which sell food. These are available in Automatic and Semi Automatic, Compact, Tall or useable with LPG gas. The Semi automatic allows staff to operate the machine manually in order to adjust the strength to a customer’s taste. It is normally Barista qualified staff who operate these machines. The automatic machines are pre-programmed to dispense a standard dose of coffee therefore ensuring a consistent [...]

The cosmopolitan nature of this capitol city means that not only do the customers come from all over the country to live there but also from all over the globe. Where a person comes from often defines their taste in food and beverages, as what they were used to as a child or within their culture has an influence on what they like to eat and drink as an adult. London Coffee Suppliers are kept busy all he year round as not only is London a major tourist attraction in general but it has a large robust business and industrial side which attracts visitors to the area constantly.

Hotels will normally have a Bulk brew machine for their restaurants especially in the larger establishments where breakfast,t lunch and dinner is served. The volume doesn’t lend itself to using bean to cup or espresso machines as they would not be fast enough to serve a large dining area where a possible 100 people would be sitting down to eat at the same time. They would also have, either in a coffee shop or Bar within the hotel an espresso machine in order to cater for the more discerning customer who during the day or evening would like a freshly produced latte or cappuccino.

Liverpool Coffee Machines

Liverpool, although not the largest city in the North, is historically a very important one. In 1207 King John’s letter patent founded the borough of Liverpool but by the 1600 century its population was still very small at around 500. There was slow progress made in the 17th century with both trade and population growth due to the English Civil War and in 1644 an Act of Parliament made it a parish, the same year as the first slave ship sailed for Africa. Substantial profits made in the slave trade helped Liverpool to prosper and grow even although several prominent Liverpool locals were in the forefront of the abolitionist movement. The 19th Century saw Liverpool playing a major role in the Antarctic Sealing industry which is shown by the fact that Liverpool Beach in the Shetlands is named after the city. By the early 19th century Liverpool grew tremendously due to the large volume of trade the construction of major buildings and also the first intercity rail link which was formed with Manchester. The mid 1800’s saw an influx of immigrants from Ireland escaping the famine and by 1851 25% of Liverpool’s population was Irish born. The rest of the century continued with immigrants from all over Europe diverging on the city. The 20th Century bloomed with suburban housing estates expanding the population even more, however recognised as the second city during world war 2 Liverpool was heavily bombed and suffered considerable damage. The building continued at the end of the war with more new housing estates and inner city areas being redeveloped. Many changes and improvements continued and then in the 60’s the Beatles catapulted the city into the eyes of the world. Along [...]

Yiannis Verenakis. The story so far.

  Our sponsored athlete and his story so far .... Well its been a year since my last blog and what a year of success I've had! I started the year training under the guidance of Britain's strongest man runner up and euros strongest man bronze medalist Graham Hicks and my training went to a new level. First comp of the year was the British finals in march where a place on the British team for this years internationals was at stake. I had moved up into the higher weight class which was a justified choice as I won the squat, bench press and deadlift setting a British record in the squat and managing to hit 9/9 lifts so it was near perfect. As I won the British I had the opportunity the represent Great Britain in this years internationals! I had 10 weeks to get ready for the world championships in Germany. Training stepped up yet another level where I was working harder then ever before. My confidence was flowing and when I got to Germany I knew it would be a success. The morning of the comp I got up for breakfast at the comp hotel and the whole place was buzzing and I felt so proud to be there. We got to the venue and the nerves hit me and I think 90% of the other lifters. It was a waiting game waiting for the flights and time to be posted I got mine and it was soon time to warm up! The warm up was the worst warm up I've ever done, my legs felt tired and every thing felt heavy. Warm up was over my confidence is down and I'm [...]

Coffee Machines Scotland

When one thinks of Scotland it is generally with a vision of wild highland scenery with eerie lochs and rocky mountainsides. The picture book image given by the travel companies does exist in many areas but Scotland is much more than its promotional image. It is a vibrant and bustling country with a history of both romantic and warlike people fighting for freedom and the right to rule their own country. This is true not only of the past but it has crept into the present and will no doubt appear again in the future. Its major cities being Edinburgh the cultural capitol, Glasgow the industrial lead and Aberdeen and Dundee in the north complimenting the others, with tourism and culture running hand in hand with industry. For the companies like Cool Beans Coffee UK who supply Coffee Machines in Scotland this is a land of opportunity. The commercial outlets in the major cities need a variety of machines including the Bean to Cup for small businesses such as car showrooms, supermarket cafes, larger offices, conference centres, cinemas, and many others. The Espresso Machines go into catering outlets of which here are many. Where there is industry and tourism visitors need to have places to relax, eat and drink which therefore ensures that the catering industry is kept busy supplying this market. Coffee Machines in Scotland are as important as any other piece of machinery in our modern world. The sign of the times is predominantly displayed in the amount of specialist coffee shops which have sprung up during the past decade. To compete with these venues cafes and restaurants have to be able to provide the same quality of coffee as the specialists. This [...]
