    You mean this sort of equipment?

    http://www.douweegbertscoffeesystems.com/dg/OutOfHome/OurProducts/Coffee/Cafitesse/Machines/

    or this http://www.douweegbertscoffeesystems.com/hidden_eg/OutOfHome/OurProducts/Coffee/PiazzaDoroEspresso/Machines/

    Is this for your home or office? It looks like a vending solution where you are committed to buy their coffee and enter into a contract.

      Doubt parts would be an issue but I wouldnt call it an espresso machine. More of a hot coffee flavored dispenser :-?.

          Hi blackbean,

          I used these in a past life at the coffee academy. I *think* theyre a rebadged San Marino :-/?

          FWIW, one of the least impressive espresso machines I have used. You could do a whole lot better...

                If it draws 15 amps do you need a 15 amp power outlet ?

                CS sparkies could answer that

                  Only if you dont want to burn the building down, essentially if you try and run 15 amps through a regular 10amp circuit you run the risk of overheating the wires and causing a fire. Big no no.

                      What do you want to use this for? Office, cafe? I saw it on ebay and it is already pricey at the current bid IMHO.

                        A standard (read un-modified) 15A plug SHOULD NOT fit into a standard 10A power point.

                          Does that plug in the photo look like a 10 amp
                          if so it is not compliant :-/

                            Its very hard to tell from a photo like that one. The difference between an 10A and 15A is the width of the earth pin. People have been known to file down the earth pin on a 15A plug to make it run out of a standard 10A powerpoint, which as Brett (motocoffee) pointed out is very bad ju-ju.
