Espresso Coffee Machines

How To Choose The Espresso Coffee Machine
That Suits Your Needs!

Ideally, you need a plumbed in regular water supply; of minimum 2 Bars ... maximum 4 Bars. Pressure regulating valves can be used to control the water pressure to a maximum of 4 Bars.

When ordering your espresso coffee machine, state that your electrical supply is either single or 3 phase. It makes a difference to the wiring of the coffee maker.

A word of advice ... rather get a coffee technician to install your machine and don't forget to order the correct installation kit which comes as an additional extra item when purchasing your coffee machine.
