Who sells commercial espresso machines in NB? Moving there from BC, could bring one with me but want to make sure I have after sales services.

Thanks

Coming to the Commercial espresso machines, I have no too many ideas. But I advise you to check some local forums of NB  which may be much more useful

There's a coffee roaster and café owner in Carleton, PQ called Brulerie du Quai, his name is Dany Marquis. He sells, installs and will train you on commercial espresso machine, have a look at his web site.

New Brunswick is such big a province, I believe most espresso machine brands should be available there, such as Keurig, breville, etc..

Keurig doesn't make espresso machines.  Breville doesn't make commercial machines.  Of your three suggestions, the OP would have better luck with "etc."

He sells La Marzocco and Nuova Simonelli machines.  Not bad, eh?

I actually know that place in Carleton, been there before. Will contact them and it's actually what I had in mind a La Marzocco as I trained on one and Nuova Simonelli I like also.  Thanks for the scoop.

Uhhhh, since when are Keurig and Breville considered COMMERCIAL espressos machines???  (Which is, after all, what the OP was asking about.)

Be that as it may, being from California, the short answer is "I don't know," but I'd check with whoever services your machine now and see if they have any contacts in NB.

I am looking for Commercial machine, 2 & 3 groups, like Nuova Simonelli, Rancillio, La Marzocco for a coffee shop. Thanks Rich for the info. It`s what I am looking for.

Mimi,

Just curious... Are you leaning towards a DB or an HX?

I've never been an owner or a pro barista.  The limits of my professional espresso experience go back to catering small parties zillions of years ago ("Predominantly French" in Los Angeles"), and some professional barista and roasting classes I took fairly recently -- out of curiosity and not for professional reasons (I'm a retired criminal/litigation/appellate lawyer).

So, with the understanding that I'm just enjoying the conversation, and my opinion doesn't mean much if anything...

There's not that much difference between the two systems.  At a "lower" level, commercial HX quality, a DB might be a little easier on your employees during the slow hours because temping requires less attention.  But (a) back to back shots don't require temping; and (b) once you get into Aurelia class (by way of one example) HXs, there's little to no difference in intermittent use either.

One question you need to ask yourself is whether a prestige machine (e.g., LM Strada) or a prestige/retro (like a Faema Classic) will increase business.  

And -- heck -- what about a three-group lever?  Nothing adds interest, or (purports to) say more about commitment to quality than levers.  Mais biensur, they're so damn slooooow.  

Having used an LM FB/80, an LM GS/5 and an Aurelia in the same room at the same time, pulling about ten shots on each, and doing some mad cupping -- I can say that if there's a difference in the cup, I couldn't taste it.  In that respect, grinder choice is far more important.  

GRINDER GRINDER GRINDER

There are something like a dozen espresso grinders which are at the extreme high-end and make commercial sense; and only two or three brew grinders which satisfy the same criteria.  Another discussion?
