Thankfully all that has changed. With the evolution of the High Street big brands of Coffee Bars. The growth in Café Culture in the UK and the influence of the well known "American" food outlets. The publics perception of Coffee has changed and become more refined. In fact the UK is now officially a nation of coffee drinkers. To respond to this many independent businesses have moved towards more sophisticated methods of producing coffee to compete in the coffee market. From the traditional Italian style Espresso machine to the more complex Bean to Cup automatic coffee machines it is possible to produce a wide range of high quality espresso based coffees very simply.
High volume would be 200 - 500 cups per day. Bean to Cup machines will protest if asked to do more than they were built to do and will appear slow at busy times. There are no major training requirements to use a Bean to Cup machine. No Barista skills are really needed. Some of the more powerful high volume Bean to Cup machines have traditional Steam Wands so some "foaming" skills may be needed. Training is more to do with how to use and look after the machine. Cleaning is especially important when using a Bean to Cup machine. Its a good idea to have some knowledge of coffee beans so you can choose a blend that will to suit your customers tastes.
The special espresso coffee machines of the day are also capable of producing the special cappuccino latte and ordinary coffee drinks. These special coffee makers deliver rich and nearly syrupy espresso beverage as there is extraction and emulsifying of oils found in ground coffee. With usage of the superior espresso machines the ideal double shot of espresso should be taking only between 25 to 30 seconds to make ready the espresso drink from the time the pump of the coffee maker is turned on.
Other similar coffee machines use a tube in the center to pump the water to the top where it drops back down over the coffee grounds. They are coffee percolators and coffee urns and come in varying sizes. Urns have greater serving sizes that go as high as 60 cups for home use. Another coffee machine makes coffee by putting coffee in the bottom of a cylinder which is usually glass. A filter the size of the inside of the cylinder is then pressed down to the bottom producing the coffee. These coffee machines have names such as French press water press a press pot coffee press coffee plunger or cafetière.
