    Best Commercial Espresso Machine?

    I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into what are considered to be the best commercial espresso machines?

    I'm starting a mobile cafe business, so something automatic or at very least semiautomatic is preferable. I've heard that Franke Evolution espresso machines are fairly top grade, but they seem quite pricey. Is there anything comparable in usability that is cheaper, yet does not forgo quality?

    Thanks in advance for any responses!

    Re: Best Commercial Espresso Machine?

    I would recommend Astoria espresso machines or if you are after afull automatic espresso maker WMF is excellant. I have been working on Astorias for many years 29 years to be exact and many other brands and these are very reliable inside and out and are not that expensive.


    If you would like more info or help feel free to Email me.

    Thanks Andy

    I just learned that Stumptown wont distribute to new cafe if they are not using a La Marzocco... that must say something about the quality.

    Nope just says they are to arrogant to learn how to work with other espresso machine manufactures. Honestly I can't stand the La Marzocco from a technical aspect. The machine is a fricking nightmare and I don't think it's designers ever met one of their own technicians before. Then again I live in a high scale environment and La Marzocco's don't last long around here if they are abused much.
    Have you ever walked through the isle of your local grocer and smelled the death of a dying bean?

    I love my Mirage! www.keesvanderwesten.com I believe Metropolis Coffee in Chicago distributes them. They had a La Mar and now use that for training, and the Mirage in the cafe.

    I hear ya.. I'll be roasting my own so I have no need to bend to anyones equipment demands haha..

    Can anyone weight in on the La Pavoni line of espresso machines? They seem rather common on the web.. not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

    **edit ** .. really like this one ..

    Mostly of the commercial machine out there nowdays are all of good level
    many name and models have their pro and cons
    HOWEVER
    my simple suggestion buy a machine that your local repair company knows how to work on and has pats in stock

    I suggest you to check with La Marzocco Espresso machine. Where you know that it is one of the top ranked company in commercial coffee makers. You can check with any La Marzocco distributors for further queries.
