Coffee Shop Supplies Needed for Running a Business
The coffee house differs from other businesses in its narrow focus. This simplifies the work at some stages of opening. The list of coffee shop supplies will be as follows:
- coffee machines;
- water softener;
- cappuccino cup warmers;
- coffee grinders.
So, coffee shops use less food and beverage storage equipment.
What equipment to use at work?
In principle, the choice of restaurant supplies is unlimited when choosing coffee machines since they are all about the same in price, despite the selling organization.
Coffee machines are of the following types:
Semi-automatic machines do not require supervision during operation. A superautomatic machine for a large coffee shop is suitable, which brews up to 200 cups per hour. The device controls the cooking process and takes into account sales and consumables.
Coffee machines differ in the size of the boiler. Its size must be suitable for the volume of coffee sales in the coffee shop. You also need to know another parameter – how many cups the machine will fill with coffee simultaneously.
An integral attribute of an institution that serves natural, refreshing drinks is coffee grinders. Experts say that coffee beans oxidize two minutes after grinding, affecting the taste. Therefore, you should not grind coffee for good. It is best to do this every time before brewing coffee.
The price of coffee grinders varies depending on the performance and capacity of the grain hopper.
Filter coffee makers and presses
In addition to the coffee machine, or even instead of it, many cafes purchase filter coffee makers. In them, hot water seeps through a filter with ground coffee. No pressure, just gravity.
Another alternative brewing method is coffee presses. The essence of the method is in insisting and squeezing. Coffee from the press is less concentrated but has a more decadent aroma and taste of grains.
Machines for making coffee on the sand are keeping popular. Brewing drinks in Turkish always captivates guests and, at the same time, does not take much time. Lovers of rich, strong coffee will especially appreciate Oriental coffee.
If you decide that buying coffee equipment is a good investment for your business, do not forget about the tools and accessories that the barista will need:
- tampers and mats for tamping coffee;
- milk frothers;
- decorators and latte art foam for drawings on milk foam;
- thermometers to control the temperature when frothing milk;
- coffee cup warmers;
- disposable coffee utensils.
This will make a positive impression on the barista’s professionalism and the coffee shop.
Сounters and Trade showcases
A trade counter in a cafe or shop is a full-fledged advertising space. Their configuration, design, and content create the impression of a coffee shop for visitors and remain an essential and recognizable detail for a long time. Counters are available in different sizes, open or blind, from various materials, with the author’s design or standard – models available for every taste.
Vertical trade showcases allow you to place many goods for a demonstration to customers from different sides. A cabinet with glass sides can stand along the walls in a small coffee shop or be independent islands at coffee-to-go points. They often display packages of coffee beans, thermo mugs, and other related equipment for sale.
