Signs you may need to upgrade or change your coffee machine
Coffee is an essential part of restaurant and cafe business. In Melbourne we have a strong coffee culture so it is important to ensure your machines are working and meeting the demands of your customers. If you have had your existing coffee machine for a while, you may want to look out for some signs that could indicate that you need to upgrade your machine. Here are some things to look out for:
You Can’t Keep Up with Customer Demand
Customers expect speedy service, especially when they’re just ordering a cup of coffee. If you find yourself making customers wait more than a couple of minutes on a cup of coffee because demand for the drink has outpaced your ability to keep up, it may be time to upgrade to a machine that can handle a higher volume of orders.Coffee Machine Superstore offer both manual, automatic and super automatic machines so that you can find the perfect machine to fit your demand.

Your Machine Has Succumbed to Limescale
Hard water contains high levels of dissolved minerals, especially calcium, that are absorbed as rainwater flows through the ground to your utility’s source water. Hard water is mostly harmless to people, but its minerals can wreak havoc on certain types of restaurant equipment, commercial coffee makers being one.
Regular maintenance and cleaning of your machine should prevent these issues from happening, but if you find your coffee machine is consistently producing a bitter taste, you may want to get it serviced or consider an upgrade.
The Machine Leaks
Constant heating, cooling, and exposure to running water will take a toll on even the most durable commercial coffee equipment. That stress may eventually cause certain coffee maker components to fail or become loose. The first sign of this type of damage often comes in the form of a leak – you may find pools of water forming around the equipment. Another sign of leaking may be that your equipment isn’t brewing a full volume of coffee.

The Machine is Rusted
Well-maintained stainless steel is highly resistant to rust. That’s because the chrome it contains protects the metal’s iron from reacting with oxygen and producing corrosion. However, dents, scratches, and exposure to the right conditions can still cause high-quality steel to develop rust. These conditions include exposure to acidic chemicals, dents, scratches, and scale buildup.
Ensure you care for your machine to prevent this, but any signs of rust may mean the machine is beyond repair.
Coffee Sales are Down
Choose the right coffee machine to cater to your customer. If you can’t meet demand, or produce a shot that will leave your customers with an impression, this may mean you need to assess the coffee machine you have.
