I was reading a thread that mentioned that a smoothie company will loan you blenders if you use their products. I know that's a common practice in the coffee business and that leads me to my question. What equipment can I get for free without compromising my product? I know I will have to buy my own espresso machine, but grinders and blenders seems like something that won't "crappify" my products. Also, if anyone knows of a smoothie company who would buy me a blender or two, please let me know. I don't want to sound like a cheapass, but I'm looking (probably like everyone else) to cut costs as much as possible and still have happy customers at the end of the day. Thanks in advance.
