Guide to buying a commercial coffee machine in South Africa

Buying a commercial coffee machine in South Africa can be a daunting task – but it doesn’t have to be. Instead of buying the first coffee machine that fits your budget requirements, rather take the time to find a good machine that will last a long time. Creating a checklist of what you need from your coffee machine (as well as all the criteria the machine needs to fulfil) is the first step to finding a machine for your business.

Guide for buying a commercial coffee machine

  • Shop around: Be sure to buy your coffee machine from a reputable and established company, particularly when you are looking to buy your machine online. There are companies who offer great prices but they may be unable to back it up with customer service and warranties.
  • Price: The amount you spend on a commercial coffee machine should be determined by factors like the size of your company and your budget. Buying a commercial coffee machine can be expensive, which is why renting one could be a viable option for your business. There are coffee machine rental companies who will save you time, money and effort by including refills and maintenance in their rental contracts.
  • Type of coffee machine: A good place to start when trying to figure out which type of coffee machine to buy, is to ask the coffee drinkers in your office which type of coffee they prefer. Also keep price and running costs in mind when deciding on the type of machine – capsule coffee machines for example, can cost you considerably more money per cup if you’re not able to buy the capsules in bulk.
  • The brand: When looking into the different brands, it’s important to understand that buying cheaper can cost you more over the long run. Just because something is in a highly priced range doesn’t mean it is better. Do some research on reliability, running costs and warranties before you decide on a specific brand for your commercial coffee machine.
  • Accessories: Remember to also take a close look at what is included with the different coffee machines you are considering. In some cases, the accessories and products included with such a machine can make it an attractive deal.
  • Customer and product reviews: Although not always reliable, customer and product reviews can help you decide on which product to buy.

If you keep an open mind, know what you are looking for and can afford a good product, buying a commercial coffee machine in South Africa can be a fun and easy experience. Aquaspresso has a range of Jura coffee machines that are ideal for the office environment.
