Looking into starting a small shop but really want to showcase some good coffee. I have my roaster in place and will be asking his advise as well but just wanted some other opinions.

Which of these two brewing systems makes a better cup of coffee (that is if there is difference)?

These seem to be comparable in price so if I based it on that I would go with a Satellite system as I think all the stainless looks slicker. But in the end it comes down to a good cup of joe.

Any opinions greatly appreciated!

Most satellite brewers are bigger then an airpot brewer. In my humble opinion a satellite brewer makes better coffee. Since they are bigger they tend be have better temperature stability and faster recovery times.

The only real con to them is if you don't need that much coffee they tend to be overkill.
