Bud?  Can you name two independent cafés (versus Starbucks) that use super-automatics that you would recommend?

Posted October 30, 2012 link



Actually, I know of a few independent cafe's and restaurants which use Superautomatics. They make terrible straight espresso, but they make milk drinks which are
acceptable. I should know, I used to have them all the time before I got into this hobby... Unless you plan on visiting Calgary, there's no point in mentioning them.

For the typical consumer, they make drinkable, but not great coffee.

I only mentioned a super-automatic because the OP said, "Super Easy".. and Super Easy they are. Like anything though, the end product does reflect the amount of work put into it, which isn't much.

Just to clarify something, in my post I said, "I don't have any personal experience with this particular machine that I linked to, so I'm not the right person to ask in regards to recommending it for
use with your business or not."
So, if it sounded like I was recommending the Monza, that wasn't what I meant to convey. Re-Reading my post, I should have just left that dollar figure out, because
it obviously conveyed the wrong message. I figured that $3k was the baseline for a super-automatic, which obviously isn't the case.

 
Garbage In, Garbage Out, for every step of the process. From Beans to grinder, grounds to machine, coffee to cup.
