||Need Advice and a Machine
||Mon, 01 Apr 2002
I was checking out eBay and found your site. It is very eclectic to say the least!
I need some advice....
I'm trying to do espresso catering in Boise, Idaho, and I don't have anyone to
talk to who is already in the business. I'm learning the hard way that my 500lb
cart and 220v machine are not the right tools for the job.
Can you tell me what 120v espresso machine will work best for my business?
I will likely do weddings and parties as much as corporate events. I'm also signed
up for the fair and some other festivals in town, as well as a concession stand
at the local soccer fields every Saturday.... I have looked at some of the websites
for cappuccino caterers, and they all seem to be using 120v machines. Every coffee
person in Boise swears that a 120v machine will NEVER be able to serve more than
a few latte's every hour - nothing close to what I need to turn out to be successful!
What is the real story here? I know people are using highly portable, self-contained
120v machines and claim to be making 50+ latte's per hour.
If you have time to talk with me about this, write back or give me a call at 208-863-0776.
