Dealing only with the best manufacturers in the world, we are proud to be able to supply you with state of the art equipment for your establishment, and in turn enable you to sell premium coffee to your customers. Renting a coffee machine is a fantastic way to get ahead of the competition without the expensive start-up costs.

Call us biased, but we believe that renting a coffee machine will enhance your business model and give you many benefits. Here are just some of the reasons why renting a coffee machine will benefit you, your business and your customers:

1. Inexpensive start-up costs

Buying a coffee machine fit for purpose can cost a fortune. It’s not like picking one up at the shop for your kitchen at home, a commercial coffee machine needs to be robust and able to handle high volumes of coffee for businesses requiring instant, professional results.

Buying such a product can be a large initial expense for a business, without any guarantee of redeeming the money. Renting a coffee machine means you don’t have to pay the huge lump sum up front, freeing up some money to invest back in your business.  We work hard to ensure that our clients are supplied with a fantastic, top of the range machine that is tailored to their specific requirements. Our aim is to allow people to serve a premium product without expensive start-up costs.

2. Match You To The Perfect Machine

When purchasing a coffee machine without any prior experience, it’s hard to know what type of machine you need or what product is suitable for your site. Once you’ve bought your machine, you’re committed to that purchase whether it works for your business or not.

However, when you’re renting a coffee machine our knowledgeable and friendly team will work hard to understand your business and its objectives ensuring that you are supplied with the machine that will be of most benefit to you. We work in partnership with you to make sure that you make a fully informed decision on the machine you choose.


3. Training & Upkeep

Renting a coffee machine also means you’re provided with complete training by our experts. We teach you how to look after your machine thoroughly because we understand it takes a lot of skill and knowledge to create the perfect cup.

So once your new machine is installed, it’s our role to also train up your team so they know exactly how to use it to its full efficiency. We’ll teach you everything you need to know, from our coffee bean’s journey from growth to roast – to specialised techniques like milk frothing and latte art.

4. Repairs

If your purchased coffee machine breaks down, you have to pay for the repairs which can be rather costly. When you’re renting a coffee machine though, you have the option to call specialised engineers who can guarantee a professional service and, most importantly, install or fix your machine in just one visit.

We can provide all aspects of maintenance, call outs and spare parts if required. When you’re running a business, it’s nice to know you’ve got one less thing to worry about when your coffee machine is broken.

Traditional coffee brewing methods around the world

The most popular drink in the world, after water is coffee and it’s also the second most traded commodity across the globe  with crude oil being first. Coffee is also one of the longest traded materials in the world and many cultures have developed specific preparation techniques and ceremonies to prepare this much loved drink.

Ethiopian Coffee Ceremony

In Ethiopia, coffee is sacred and contributes to two-thirds of the country’s income. Up to three servings of coffee are crafted during the ceremony and it is viewed as impolite when a cup isn’t finished. It is an integral part of Ethiopian society as members will host these rituals in order to debate politics, discuss life, society and gossip. The ceremony is an approach to extend friendships and show respect to people invited to the home. In some parts of Ethiopia, the ritual can occur up to three times a day; morning, afternoon and evening. Preparation is ceremonious, a woman usually conducts the ritual, dressed in a traditional Ethiopian white dress, with colours woven at the bottom. Firstly, frankincense is burned before the coffee beans are ground using a pestle. The ground coffee is now added to water and stirred in a ‘jeneba’ (clay coffee pot), then brought to a boil. The mixture must then be strained. The coffee is taken black and sugar or salt. Sometimes it is further accompanied by complementary popcorn or peanuts.

Vietnamese ‘Dripping’ method

The Vietnamese have evolved the dripping ritual to prepare a strong, yet sweet tasting iced coffee. The equipment required is a Vietnamese dripper (as known in Vietnam as a Phin) and a Vietnamese metal filter. It is a simple process, however there is quite a long infusing time taking about 4 to 5 minutes to brew one cup. The method involves positioning the filter over glass that’s partly filled with condensed milk, dark roasted coffee grounds should then be added to the filter, followed by boiling hot water. The coffee should be given about 5 minutes to pass through the filter.

Scandinavian Egg Coffee

It is said that this egg coffee originated from Northern Minnesota’s Scandinavian immigrants to improve the tasteless weak coffee that was around at the time. It is further renowned around places like Sweden and Norway for carrying a smooth and rich taste; and as the name implies a full egg, including the shell is required. Egg whites remove the acridness of the poor-quality coffee while heightening the caffeine; providing the perfect non-bitter, smooth and rich brew.

Brazil Cafezinho

Brazil’s traditional coffee is called a ‘Cafezinho’ translating to ‘a little coffee’. It’s a very intensely sweet beverage and is served in small demitasse cups. This shot is perfect for get your caffeine fix. The brew is generally taken black; however, inserting hot milk is thought of as a morning tradition. Preparation involves adding water and sugar into a pan, once it’s boiled, swirl in the coffee grounds. Sieve the blend through a sock filter (known as a colador in Brazil).

South Indian Kaapi

Southern India has acquired a lot of eminence regarding their filter coffee and its preparation requires a lot of perseverance. Crafting the brew can take up to three hours and is best done the night before. Kaapi is a fine fusion of dark roasted coffee beans and the plant chicory. Chicory is an overall intensifier to the beverage, crafting a distinctive aroma and flavour. It further balances out the pungent taste and acts as a thickening agent. South Indian filters have two chambers within the vessel; the top compartment has a pierced bottom, allowing the coffee mixture to penetrate through. Once the coffee powder is added to the part with the perforated base, boiling water is then combined. The bottom piece then collects the filtered mixture.

Brewing methods differ around the globe, from ceremonies to coffee shots. However, coffee machines are now the modern method of crafting the perfect brew. It is a crucial piece of equipment for businesses as machines can specialise at assembling a range of different types of beverages. Some methods can take up to three hours to prepare a cup, but coffee machines can prepare a brew in minutes.

Our team are experts when it comes to all things coffee. From brewing to latte art and everything in between, we’ve got it covered. If you want to arrange a no-obligation consultation to provide the very best coffee machines for your establishment then please get in touch. We are always on hand to offer advice and support.

Our Guide to Wood Roasting Coffee

Each coffee roasting method, whether it’s wood, gas or coal influences the overall taste and aroma of the coffee in its own way. The process of the roast involves charring green coffee beans to various brown hues, the conversion of fats into volatile oils, caramelising natural sugar, acids and other flavour elements  to achieve the desired properties by the roaster.

The seasoned wood approach is by far the eco-friendliest method due to the implementation of renewable energy sources. Each different strong wood used, whether it’s Beech, Oak, Holm or Ash wood, will refine and clarify the coffee differently.

What makes the wood roasting process unique?

This artisanal approach to roasting starts off with heavily seasoned wood. The coffee beans are sourced from different origins and are cooked separately. The beans should only be combined once cooled to ensure the blend is enriched with a selection of essences and flavours.

The best coffee companies work directly with specialist farmers and co-operatives, who can offer carefully selected coffee for their wood roasting. All coffee beans should be responsibly and ethically sourced and selected based on their flavour.

The end goal is to provide clients with great tasting coffee that is roasted with passion, pride and respect for everyone that makes exceptional quality possible – from seed to cup.

Ethical sourcing is also extremely important to us. We only provide coffee that is sourced in the most sustainable and socially responsible way. Happy farms and passionate wood roasting makes the best tasting coffee!

Why choose the wood roasting process?

Even though all coffee roasting equipment roasts coffee using the same process – heating the coffee beans to transform the physical and chemical properties of green coffee beans into varied shades of brown roasted beans, the difference between wood roasting and conventional gas roasting is the speed in which the bean’s internal temperature rises.

For thousands of years, the art of wood roasting coffee was the only way to properly prepare coffee beans using wood-fire ovens. However, other heat sources such as natural gas have taken over and have primarily been used to speed up the roasting process and reduce overall costs.

Technology has enhanced our lives massively in immeasurable ways, but not when it comes to roasting coffee. We still believe that the time-honoured, traditional, wood-fired roasting method is the best way to do coffee.

Although wood roasting takes approximately three to four times longer to prepare the coffee beans than modern methods, we believe that this times allows the beans to retain many of their natural compounds to preserve the flavour.
