When I was a kid, my dad always used to say that if you don't look after your appliances, then they won't look after you. I didn't use to believe this. However, when I grew up, I came to learn that my old man was a wise old bird. I had been living in my first home for about 6 months and I was really enjoying my new found freedom when the problems began. My fridge-freezer stopped working and the oven wouldn't get hot. I called in an appliance service and they explained that the appliances needed a bit of maintenance. They gave me some great tips.

If you are thinking of opening a coffee shop or adding coffee to your existing menu, you will need a reliable machine that is able to create great tasting coffee. There are many coffee machines on the market today that fit the bill including Expobar coffee machines and La Marzocco coffee machines. These particular models come with a warranty and have many spare parts available online should you ever need to arrange a repair. In this article we'll take a look at the qualities you should look out for when purchasing a new coffee machine for your business. 

Dependable Service

The last thing you want when the queue is building at your counter is for your coffee machine to putter out. Not only is this bad for business, but investing in a low-quality machine means you are unlikely to get a good return on investment. Look for coffee machine reviews that suggest a machine has been used for a lengthy period of time without any issues in a commercial environment. Also, look for machines that come with an extended warranty. If the machine fails during the warranty, you will be guaranteed a repair visit free of charge. 

A Wide Range Of Options

Unless you only want to serve one or two types of coffee, look for a machine that can cope with the wide variety of coffees available today. From cappuccino to latte and mocha chocolatte to espresso, giving your customers a wide choice of options will make them more likely to visit your coffee shop. For example, both Expobar coffee machines and La Marzocco coffee machines offer features such as a milk frother, steamer and even a built-in coffee bean grinder for extra freshness. 

Easy To Use And Clean

During a busy morning and at the end of the day you'll be pleased you chose a coffee machine that is easy to use and easy to clean. Look out for coffee machines that come with a good instruction manual and that don't require a degree to understand the functions. When it comes to cleaning, look for machines that have components that can be washed individually and which can also go in a dishwasher. Hygiene is of the utmost importance when running a catering business or coffee shop, so it pays to ensure your machine can be cleaned thoroughly inside and out. 

Whether you are choosing your first coffee machine or you are replacing your existing model, there are many machines that will ensure you get the best return on your investment and give your customers a great cup of coffee every day.
