Hello all, I haven't been active on these forums for a while now, but I am in the process of laying out my new shop, and I was hoping to get some advice on the blending station. I have seen in the past a few cafes where the blenders were built into the counter, and were lowered by about a foot or so, so that the top of the blender was level with the surface of the counter--basically, the front edge of the counter was lowered to create a ledge just for the blenders. It looked interesting, but I was wondering if anybody had experience with this setup, and what advantages/disadvantages it offered? I can see that it would restrict the blenders to a specific space, so they wouldn't take up a large section of the counter, but are there other less obvious benefits? I can't find a picture of what I am describing, so I am hoping that at least some people will understand what I am talking about. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
