I purchased an Astoria CRK espresso machine last November for my restaurant. Recently, it has been malfunctioning. Water began leaking from the bottom of the machine, there is no hot water brewing and the green light indicator is constantly blinking. The machine I purchased has a built in reservoir.
Does anyone know of a repair company I can call to service this machine? I live in SW Colorado.

I think about all you will be able to do is to look in your yellow pages, you might ask other coffee shops who services their equipment.
This is the reason that we advise any business to only purchase equipment from a dealer that services the equipment also. It WILL break down and when it does, you need someone to be there that instant, you can't afford to wait 4 days for the tech to get out there.
Good luck, REALLY!
