  • I need help for small office machine

    I'm looking at a fully automatic machine with the following features;
    $1000.00 to $2000.00
    Capacinos and flat whites
    Small bench space
    Standard cups
    Grinder included
    Pour in milk ie no manual frothing
    Up to 10 cups in a row.

    Because its hard to get people to clean up, I just want to add milk and water. Coffee beans in the grinder and then hit a button and wait. Put milk contain back in fridge and coffee grounds fall into a container that needs emptying when full.

    I'm sure this is possible, but just need a help pointing me in the right direction.

    Closer to $1000 is better to $2000.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Meinoz and welcome.

    Your question has been asked before and I suspect you will find that your budget and requirements are not aligned. In fact, you might triple the budget.

    Best bet to speak with a sponsor who handles superauto machines. You will need to provide the # of employees you wish to cater for. You may also wish to consider an office coffee supply company which provides an effective rental of a suitable superauto machine with the purchase of a certain volume of coffee.

    Alternately, rent/try/buy may work for you.

      Having investigated the options a number of times I have to say "It isn't possible."
      If nobody cleans up, it isn't possible at any budget--buy or rent.

      Sorry,

          As noted by others, purchasing something that meets your requirements is not possible given your budgetary constraints, AFAIK "office" superautos start at about $2500 and go up from there.

          Leasing is probably your best option, and also has the upside of handling support and maintenance (should be covered in your lease agreement).
