the expobar is made in spain, not in australiaI also like that it is Australian.
and IMHO, is a better machine than the boema , which is the only machine in aust (partly made)
at last enquiry the only colour in stock was blueand the fact that it comes in any car auto colour you like!!
we have sold a number of the expobars and have had no issues as yet
spare parts are not a problem
and customer feed back has been good
there are lots of good coffee machines and grinders on the market
it is about finding someone who will sell you the right setup and service it for you.
in our area, there is two or three sellers/ repairers who have very limited knowledge of what they are selling, or trying to service and carry no or little spare parts.
contact all the suppliers in your area and talk to them about your needs.
do they carry spares
if your machine fails and they cant repair quickly, do they have a spare machine that they are able to loan you
can they teach you and your staff to make better than good coffee.
find out who else they have taught, take a friend or two and try their coffees
too many businesses think that a fancy looking coffee machine or that some fancy name award winning coffee
will sell lots of coffee
its the a combination of
good clean Equipment + Fresh Coffee + good Service people + passionate USER = lots of coffees
