Coffee sales play a huge role in boosting profits for a wide range of business types. Coffee is extremely profitable with the potential to generate huge margins. To unleash this potential, your coffee service must be of the very highest standard. To ensure a top quality coffee offering, equipment is key.
There are several points to consider when choosing a commercial coffee machine; reliability and value for money, ease of use, drink quality and ease of maintenance. In this post we’ll explain why the rijo42 Brasil bean to cup coffee machine surpasses all of these criteria.
Coffee Machine Reliability & Value For Money
The key most aspect when selecting a professional coffee machine is reliability. If coffee sales form a core part of your business and profit margins, it’s absolutely essential your coffee machine can meet demand. As such, the machine should be constructed of high quality parts to reduce technical issues. Value for money is also important when selecting a new commercial coffee machine. A cheap initial outlay can more than likely prove expensive in the long run. Many manufacturers construct machines of inexpensive plastic parts to reduce the price of their equipment. On first impressions this may appear that you are getting a great deal, however costs associated with replacing failing parts over the life span of the machine can negate any saving made on the original purchase price. A coffee machine that fails is a cost to your business; every minute your machine is out of order, your profits are taking a hit!

Ease of Use
Another key factor when choosing a commercial coffee machine is ease of use. Machines that are simple to operate are without doubt more cost effective, particularly in self-service environments, the simpler the machine is to use, the better. If a customer walks up to a machine that looks too complicated to operate they will more than likely walk away without making a purchase – not good for profits! It is also beneficial that the machine is user friendly when being operated by staff. Push button machines ensure consistency in drink quality regardless of the skill level of the operator, providing your customers with the same great coffee experience on each visit.

The quality of drink a commercial coffee machine produces is of paramount importance. To maximise coffee sales the end result, the drink, needs to be of excellent quality.
