Whether it’s regularly brewed or a fancy barista concoction, coffee has become a vital part of almost every restaurant, bar or deli. And of course, if you have a coffee house, you need the best coffee-making equipment. Coffee is always in demand and today’s coffee drinkers want the best hot and cold coffee drinks available.
Coffee, espresso or cappuccino machines can be very expensive when purchased new. That’s why it’s a good idea to visit Kohn-Megibow Company for high-quality used coffee machines. We regularly get coffee equipment in of all shapes, sizes, designs and functions. They are in excellent working condition and will save you tons of money when bought at auction or directly from our warehouse.
There are many different types of coffee machines out there, so it’s important to understand what you need for your establishment. Take a look at the coffee equipment breakdown below.
Pour-Over vs. Automatic
If you’re a larger establishment, an automatic coffee brewer will be perfect for you, as it is hooked up to a water line to provide an automatic flow of water as each pot of coffee is brewed. For places that do not go through a lot of coffee each day, a pour-over machine will be a better option. These machines are manual; you fill up the pot with fresh water and then pour it into the top of the machine to be brewed. Whatever your needs are, KMC offers both pour-over and automatic coffee machines.
Decanter brewers allow you to set the amount of coffee you need to brew at any given time. Then, you store and serve the coffee in commercial decanters. Most of these machines also come with multiple warmers to keep the decanters at the desired temperature.
Thermal Air Pot Brewers
These are often for self-service when you want to have large pots of coffee out for customers to fill up their cups. The coffee is brewed in a thermal pot that you can take or place anywhere to keep the coffee warm for a long period of time.
These are similar to thermal air pot brewers, but they are designed to stay in one spot. They are usually a cube shape and ideal for self-serve situations such as a conference room, cafeteria, buffet or dining room.
KMC offers excellent used standard coffee machines from the following top brands:
This is a big round barrel with a basket on top. They make large baskets of coffee and are great for making a lot of coffee for a large number of customers at once.
Cappuccino & Espresso Machines
These specialty brewing machines are extremely popular. They are available in many different sizes and configurations, so it often depends on the size of your restaurant, the space you have available and your demand for these specialty drinks. Kohn-Megibow Company regularly carries high-grade cappuccino and espresso machines from manufacturers like La Marzocco and La Cimbali, which can be very expensive to buy new. But at KMC, we have them available for a fraction of the cost!
