Deciding on a coffee machine for your restaurant, cafe or bar can prove challenging as the market today is saturated with a great variety of automatic coffee machines, making you feel like a kid in a toy store. You will want to search for a coffee machine that will best suit the needs of your F&B business. Before deciding on the type of automatic coffee machine to purchase, its important to first understand some of the key components of this equipment that automates the process of coffee making.

1) The brewing unit
The brewing unit of an automatic coffee machine where ground coffee beans fall into, should be made of metal. Sadly, as there are numerous machines made out of plastic parts, the brewing units are also made out of plastic. A plastic brewing unit can wear out and break down easily which means that the machine will be out of service most of the time, and can be very costly long term.
2) Cleaning
Cleaning an automatic coffee machine should be as easy as making coffee automatically. Most coffee machines on the market require parts and components to be removed prior to cleaning. The best machines on the market only require the user to fill up a jug of water and add cleaning solution or tablet to it, push a button and the machine does the rest. Removing components to clean the machine can result in parts getting lost or broken. 
3) Milk delivery
The delivery of milk is a key part and process of an automatic coffee machine. There are 2 processes in which an automatic coffee machine delivers frothed milk. Most commonly used by the majority of the machines on the market, the Venturi milk delivery system uses Air and Steam power to suck and froth the milk. Milk delivery via a pump is used only by the best and high-end brands in the market. This is because the pump delivers more consistent frothed milk and does not require adjustments.
