The Right Equipment
Almost all of the coffee we sell is our small batch roasted coffee available only in whole bean. This means you will need a grinder or grinders. Most dining rooms and cafes require one plumbed in high heat coffee brewer and one portion or retail coffee grinder for up to one hundred seats. If you are doing any amount of tea volume, especially tea in pots, you will also need a water tower, bringing your equipment total to three pieces. In addition you will need three to five thermal carafes. Restaurants and dining rooms typically do table service with 1.9 litre hand held thermal carafes. Coffee shops usually brew into 2.5 litre thermal gravity pots. If your seating capacity is above one hundred seats we will help you determine what additional equipment you may need.
A new thermal carafe plumbed in coffee brewer with hot water faucet and 220 volt electrical is 990.00 plus HST. Grinders are 800.00 to 1400.00 plus HST. Water towers are 725.00 plus HST. A typical 100 seat dining room or busy 60 seat café will spend 3,000.00 plus HST for these three pieces of equipment. We can order the equipment in for you and install it to your water and electrical utilities. When coffee volume is large enough Nova Coffee will provide some or all equipment on loan. A minimum of thirty five pounds monthly is required.
