    Try looking in to a La Cimbali.
    Have you ever walked through the aisle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    Perhaps you should consider contacting a supplier in your country of destination for assistance in this matter. You should make sure that whatever equipment you purchase has local technical support and parts available.

    I like the Nuova Simonelli Line of commercial espresso equipment and you can check them out locally if you live near Seattle. Check out their website for their phone and address for gathering your data you need to make a decision at: http://www.emeraldcityespressomachines.com/index.html

    thanks!

    I am looking to start a shop in Guam and am thinking it will be kind of difficult to find technical support for most kinds of machines...this is why I am asking all of you. Finding suppliers might be a tricky part for me, but thank you for all your great advice!!!

    I dont think that Guam is such a difficult place to provide support to. I have a client there and so far no problems. Of course you need your machine people to install the machine and train your staff...but all in all it should be very do-able

    well you see..

    I am still looking for a machine that I will be able to get maitenance done when necessary on Guam. I don't want to purchase a machine that I and no one else on the island can actually fix. Where is your range of distribution?

    We mainly distribute in Mainland Indonesia- but we do sell machines as far afield as Singapore, Malaysia on a regular basis. The San Marino machines (Astoria), especially the Semis, re very,very reliable. Touch wood- but basically the only problem I have had with any of the ones I have sold was a blocked pump filter- only becuse the cafe owner had disconected the machine from the main filter and plugged it in direct to the water mains. Main water in Indonesia seems to have a high % of rat fur, mud and other nasties in in...thus the filter over the external pump quickly became blocked.

    In our more remote locations (and some of the places we sell to here take 2-3 days to get to!) we provide technical training and full technicians manual with the machine...just in case!
