Opening a cafe is a popular type of business. Life has become fast, so people often need to “recharge”, which can be provided by a favorite drink of many – coffee. Coffee will always be in demand: both at a table in a coffee shop and to take away. However, to organize the efficient operation of the restaurant business, much different equipment is required – coffee machines, refrigerated display cases, coffee grinders, warmers for dishes, and other coffe shop supplies. Coffee houses also offer other food and beverage.
Professional coffee machines are almost entirely automated, and human participation in the drink preparation is minimal. Coffee will always be tasty and high-quality, even if the staff needs to be qualified more. The functionality of most models is quite extensive. Among them are such features as:
- coffee consumption counter;
- setting your programs depending on the volume of the drink;
- connection to the cash register and others.
When choosing equipment, it is worth analyzing how much and how many types of drink will be produced the experience and skills of the barista, and the required coffee brewing speed.
The taste of the drink is determined by the method of preparation and the difference in the degree of grinding – from small particles and powdery appearance for Turkish coffee to large granules for French press coffee machines. The type of burrs of a professional coffee grinder matters – conical ones are considered the best. They are more wear-resistant and allow you to achieve fine grinding. Coffee grinders differ in the production volume of output products, the speed of rotation of the knives, and the working volume of the loading chamber.
To preserve the taste of the served drink, it is worth using slightly warm cups – due to the reduced temperature difference, the coffee remains aromatic longer. To ensure the effect, warming cabinets for dishes are used. There are cabinets of compact and large sizes, simple rack-type devices or with more optimized internal space for easy loading and unloading of dishes, as well as built-in or solo models. Heaters are used for other dishes, which will be relevant for a coffee shop with an assortment of second courses.
Milk coolers are specialized refrigeration equipment used in coffee shops and bars. It can cool the product, extend its shelf life, and include a pasteurization function.
Refrigerated display cases are essential equipment for any coffee shop; such devices help keep products fresh. A beautiful display case can emphasize the goods and increase sales. Equipment of this type is of different types:
- with transparent doors;
Chest freezers will preserve the freshness of products and demonstrate them to customers from the best side. Chests are used to store food stocks in the utility room (devices with a blank lid) or to demonstrate goods, for example, ice cream in the hall (with a glass lid).
