How does a traditional espresso machine work? 

Traditional espresso coffee machines Cardiff work by pumping hot water through the bed of espresso ground coffee in a ‘group handle’ at a very high pressure of around 9 bar or 150 pounds per square inch in order to extract a very intense and aromatic cup of espresso – this is the basis of the modern speciality coffee drinks line-up: you can see the popular Synchro 2 Group Espresso Coffee Machine in orange above and the stunning Franke A400 –  one of our recent coffee machines in Cardiff at the Porsche Cardiff dealership below:

Coffee Machine Cardiff

Making a flat white, cappuccino or caffe latte involves heating and/or foaming the milk (we generally recommend semi-skimmed) with a cappuccino having more tiny air bubbles as foam on the top – this is generally done with one of the espresso machine’s steam arms and via careful control of the steam valve. We offer rental of espresso coffee machines via a lease-rental finance deal with respected finance brokers.

Would you like a coffee sample or to know more about our coffees? Our super-modern coffee roaster, strict quality control and research lab are just the final stages in a fascinating journey bringing this marvel of nature from the tropics to your cup.

An astonishing product of nature, coffee grows around the tropics on two species of coffee tree –Coffea Arabica and Coffea Robusta (there are others as well); the coffee trees are generally kept below two metres in height to ease harvesting so are more like a bush in practice.

Coffee, An Amazing Product!

Did you know that coffee is a enormous commodity? Often it is second only to oil in size on the world commodities market!

Over 20 million people make a living in the coffee trade world-wide from many thousands of smallholders to traders, roasters and dealers. An astonishing product of nature, coffee grows in the tropics on two species of coffee tree –Coffea Arabica and Coffea Robusta (there are others as well); coffee trees are generally kept below two metres in height to ease harvesting.

Why not have a look at Caffia’s coffee range on our corporate website here?

You might have heard of Fairtrade certified coffees? This is a scheme whereby the small holders and farmers on coffee growing co-operatives are guaranteed a certain minimum price for their crop so that they are not at the mercy of market forces – we offer a range of Fairtrade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance coffees.

We install barista coffee machine models in 2 group and 3 group format; please call us on 01324 617618 to discuss our range which extends to more than 12 different models for commercial and catering use. We also offer 2 different compact 2 group models for sites with limited budget or space. Caffia Coffee Group offer a full range of catering barista coffee machine models for restaurants, cafe bars, hotels and sandwich shops. We offer a range of machines and grinders that is uniquely flexible, well priced and with UK-wide service back up, pressure testing, water filter changes and barista training, brands that we specialise in include Synchro, La Cimbali, Wega, Macap and Expobar.

But how does a barista coffee machine work? A traditional barista coffee machine works by pumping hot water through the bed of espresso (fine) ground coffee in a ‘group handle’ at a very high pressure of around 9 bar or 150 pounds per square inch in order to extract a very intense and aromatic cup of espresso – this is the basis of the modern speciality coffee drinks line-up.

Barista Coffee Machine

Making a flat white, cappuccino or caffe latte involves heating, texturing and foaming the milk (we generally recommend using semi-skimmed milk) with a cappuccino having more tiny air bubbles as foam on the top – this is generally done with one of the machine steam arms and via careful control of the steam valve. Have a look at our barista skills coffee video here:

We offer rental of barista coffee machines via a 3 year lease-rental finance deal with respected finance brokers. The concept of an espresso machine originated in Italy and the key point is high-pressure extraction of intensely flavoured and concentrated coffee in short measure. This strong brew has spread from Italy to the whole world as a favourite coffee fix. With the Caffia range of coffee beans you have a variety of taste styles but there should always have a good ‘crema’ – the emulsion of coffee oils that floats on top of the drink (it’s a good idea to stir your espresso with a spoon to blend this in).

As you probably already know, the coffee beans are ground to a fine consistency and ‘tamped’ (pressed firmly) into a strong handle which is known as a group handle or portafilter, this is not unlike a very small and rugged saucepan. Once secured in the group head on the espresso machine by means of a quarter of a turn the machine’s pump is triggered to force water through the ground coffee at around 140 psi (although at a low flow rate) and the result is this intense extraction.

Milk heating, foaming and texturing are undertaken by the barista with the machine’s steam arms – this is a skill that takes practice but don’t worry – we train you on all of this. Strong points of espresso machines are smart looks that shouts ‘we sell good coffee’, good cup warming storage, good ‘theatre’ as customers can see the drink being crafted for them, good prices and robust performance.

Eden.jpg

We stock the Edenware range of biodegradable paper cups in single wall and double wall format. They are both practical, eco-friendly and well-priced. Having 2 layers of material with the double wall cups means that your hands are protected and the drink is kept hotter for longer.

Biodegradation is the disintegration of organic materials by bacteria or other biological means.[a]
It is associated with environmentally-friendly take away packaging products like these cups that are capable of decomposing back into natural elements when they have composting conditions.

The secret is the liner of the cup, with many main stream double wall paper cups this is a plastic substance whereas with these cups the lining is actually corn starch; thus they are safe to use and eco-friendly to the environment as well.

The single wall version is suitable for use in offices and business for staff refreshments. These cups simply decompose in land-fill; you can see more details on our corporate website and place orders on-line.

We also offer sipper lids that are compostable for use with these cups.

There’s one key element across over 150 manufacturers of barista style commercial espresso coffee machines across the globe… and that is pressure. The concept of an espresso machine originated in Italy and the key point is high-pressure extraction of intensely flavoured and concentrated coffee in short measure. This strong brew has spread from Italy to the whole world as a favourite coffee fix. With the Caffia Coffee Group range of beans it comes in a variety of taste styles but should always have a good ‘crema’ – the emulsion of coffee oils that floats on top of the drink (it’s a good idea to stir your espresso with a spoon to blend this in).

Barista Style Coffee Machines

With an espresso coffee machine like the impressive Royal Synchro T2 2 Group Coffee Machine shown above, the coffee beans are ground to a fine consistency and ‘tamped’ (pressed firmly) into a strong handle which is known as a group handle, this is not unlike a very small and rugged saucepan. Once secured in the group head on the espresso machine by means of a quarter of a turn the machine’s pump is triggered to force water through the ground coffee at around 140psi (although at a low flow rate) and the result is this intense and aromatic extraction.

Milk heating, foaming and texturing are undertaken by the barista with the machine’s steam arms – this is a skill that takes practice but don’t worry – we train you on all of this. Strong points of espresso machines are smart looks that shouts ‘we sell good coffee’, good cup warming storage, good ‘theatre’ as customers can see the drink being crafted for them, good prices and robust performance.

Also consider that these machines do take time to make a drink as well as quite a bit of skill acquired by practice – also with a human operator (s) there can be a degree of inconsistency in the end product. It’s fair to say that traditional espresso machines are rare in the office setting as they are not really automated enough to be convenient for staff drinks.
