    Making good coffee for a large group of people

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Help! I need some advice!

    I am a film producer and I am responsible for organizing the coffee served on set. Film crews are notoriously fickle about their coffee, and the NEED coffee to work.
    I don't drink coffee myself, so I have no idea of what constitutes good or bad coffee, and I don't really know how to make good coffee.

    So here is my question.

    How can I make good quality coffee for 10 - 15 people, using a method which is reasonably quick and foolproof? The junior production assistants have to make the coffee and they are not trained baristas, so a manual espresso machine is not a good option.

    Can you give me some suggestions? Is it possible to make good coffee using a drip filter machine if you are using freshly ground and roasted beans?

    Many Thanks

    Welcome to CS Aurelia

    I think the Breville YouBrew might suit your requirements. They are produce an excellent drip filter coffee.

    Cheers

    That would be my suggestion, Drip or Plunger coffee using suitable freshly roasted/ground coffee would be my preference to trying to imitate an Espresso style badly using an automatic machine or (shiver) capsules (Nespresso style). Ensure you get beans suitable for Drip/Plunger. It will also be easier no doubt to cater for the varied tastes, milk or alternative, sugar etc if they can do it themselves.

    You might also want to consider hiring a mobile coffee service. If... for example... you were currently shooting a film on the Mornington Peninsula... you might want to look into getting a local coffee van to show up on site.

    Thanks for your replies.

    A coffee service is probably too expensive for what we are doing, but that YouBrew looks awesome! I might look into that.
