The Rancilio Classe 9 Automatic espresso machine is a model that some folks consider may be too much machine for their business. There are so many styles available, how do you know which manufacturer, let alone model, to go with?
When selecting a commercial espresso machine for your business, there are a few things you should think about: How many espresso-based drinks do you think you'll make during your busiest hour? What style of drinks do you want to prepare -- straight espresso, milk-infused concoctions or something altogether different like a Rooibos tea latte? What level of training and staff turnover might you expect in your business? Finally, how quickly will you see the return on your investment at different espresso machine prices?
Once you've determined the answers to those questions, it's much easier to select the right machine that will keep up with your business' pace, perform well under market demands and produce the type of drinks that are popular in your area or that you specialize in.
If your business happens to be high volume and particularly fast paced, the Rancilio Classe 9 Automatic espresso machine is definitely worth considering. It features some great automation, such as volumetric dosing, that can make it easier for your staff to quickly produce consistent espresso shots and its impressive boiler design makes short work of even the largest steaming pitcher. You can also select a model that allows for more room beneath the portafilter spouts, designed for extracting directly into tall to-go cups. This is the machine of choice for popular drive-through espresso stands that need to quickly serve up quality drinks during a serious morning rush.
