    What coffee machnines do you use?

    Hi!

    I am in the research stage of starting a coffee shop, since I am so new to the whole idea I probably won't be opening anything for atleast a year. After looking through this board and other sites I am having trouble deciding what coffee machine to use. I am looking for something capable of producing a hyprothetical 25-50 cups per hour. I personally use a french press with great results but I can see this becoming troublesome on a busy day. So what does everyone use? What style of brewer? Any suggetions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi,

    I use a Bunn Axiom Twin APS for drip and a GM Espressimo 1750 for espresso. Don't forget good grinders, a consistent grind is very improtant.
    Thank you,

    Buy the best grinder within your budget, then look into espresso machine. Just curious, how do you come about 25 - 50 cups an hour?
    You want cream and sugar?

    I use San Marino and Astoria machines (Same manufacturer). My new venture has a 3 group lever Astoria Rapallo. It is fantastic. Theral renaissance now for lever machines. The quality of shot is fantastic. A 2 group- lever or Semi as Tophie mentioned would work
