    Try to get a nice deep counter especially if you are installing an espresso machine.
    You put cups under the groups when you are making coffee but they cups are taken off when the milk or whatever is poured into the cup - it just makes life a bit easier if there is a space in front of the machine. Tampers, milk thermometers, chocolate shakers... They all take up space.
    Obviously you don't want a great big heavy machine filled with water and steam under pressure and at 115-120 deg C perched on a bar just wide enough to accommodate the feet!

    We are looking at 32" or 33" for our front bar and for our back bar 34". We wanted to have some space behind the fridge and we will have sliding doors on each side of it so we need a little space in front. It seems really deep to us. We do like the counter space but it makes reaching shelving above the counter a little bit of a reach. We lose a little space on our front bar to a sliding barn style door - a total of about 5.5 " of lost space on top and 3.5" under the bar (so undercounter usable space is 29.5" on the 33" counter).
