Our large commercial espresso machines do not ship "right off the shelf." They must be bench-tested for several days, and then crated and freighted. While you will likely get your espresso machine within 2-3 weeks, we can't guarantee this. You should allow as much as 6-weeks lead time when ordering a large commercial espresso machine. This is in case there is a backlog of machines to be tested, and in case we find things during test that should be addressed prior to shipping.
Large commercial espresso machines require installation - meaning connection to water, connection to 220 Volt service (for 2-group machines and larger), and a floor drain. We will explain in detail what is required in the sections below, and we will arrange for installation for you. We know that it can be nerve-wracking when you are opening a shop. We don't want you to have any surprises, and we will take care of you.
Contact us prior to ordering for a better estimate on when you will likely be up and running. Note that sales on commercial espresso machines are final once they are installed, but we are committed to work with you to make sure that you are satisfied with your installation. At TheCoffeeBrewers, we will make sure that you understand what you need to do, and what you should expect before you buy. Make sure to read the details of whatever machine interests you. We take pains to explain what will happen, and what needs to be done.
Our prices on
commercial espresso machines include a water softening unit, and a warranty. Prices do NOT include freight. Contact us for an estimate.
If you get a price quote on a
commercial espresso machine from another website or dealer, make sure that you understand what that price does and does not include, and make sure that you understand what your other expenses will be in getting your
commercial espresso machine installed and operational.
We explain what those other expenses may be in the paragraphs below.
commercial espresso machine section is separated into subsections so that we can provide an overarching description of the brand or line within the section. But this section is also separated this way because the specifics of what is included in the price, and what services we will do and/or arrange for is different for each line of
commercial espresso machines.
Before you buy, make sure that you have a full and clear understanding of what is and is not included in the price of your
commercial espresso machine, and what else you will need to do to get your
commercial espresso machine operational. To help you out, we have explained what else needs to be done, and what else needs to be purchased for each line of
commercial espresso machines. Again, the deal is different for each different line.
When other things need to be purchased, or other work needs to be done to get your
commercial espresso machine installed and operational, we've given you a rough idea what those things will cost so that you will have a pretty good idea of your total costs, and what you're getting into.
Especially if you are opening a coffee business, we know that the planning and scheduling of contractors can be very stressful and frustrating, and that you need to make every penny count. When you buy from us, we don't want you to be surprised later on with other things that you need to buy and/or do. We operate with several national chains of authorized installers and trained service professionals. If we don't do the installation ourselves, we will arrange your installation and service for you - unless you would like to make your own arrangements.
Before you buy a
commercial espresso machine, please contact us so that we can be sure that the
commercial espresso machine that you want is in our warehouse and ready to ship. We can then give you a very good idea of when you will receive your
commercial espresso machine (we bench-test them before we ship them), and when your
commercial espresso machine can be installed. We don't want any scheduling surprises for you when you buy a
commercial espresso machine from us!
