The festive season is nearly upon us – so now is the perfect time to think about your service procedures.
Will you be able to serve consistently high-quality coffee quickly? Could you make any improvements to your service procedures or equipment?
Now is also the best time to carry out some quick checks on your espresso machine:
Filters: Check by holding up to the light and seeing if all holes are clear and free from build-up.
Shower Screens: These should be replaced if they are clogged or damaged.
Gaskets: These become hardened due to the high temperatures they have to withstand. Check to ensure they retain their elasticity. Replace where necessary.
Filter Holders: These should be replaced if the handles become significantly off to the right of centre.
