When you are just starting out in business, cash flow can be very tight indeed. With all of the stresses of starting up a coffee shop or other business that serves espresso or coffee drinks, you can eliminate some of the headache by leasing espresso machines instead of buying them outright. A premium espresso machine that will help you serve up drinks that will keep your customers coming back is a fairly sizeable investment for a small startup, thatís why if you can find a dealer who will offer you lease terms at an affordable rate itís a great option to consider.
Leasing may not be the ideal solution for every business because it can be more expensive in the long run. It does, however, offer the advantage of freeing up cash flow and allowing you to claim the entire payment as a business expense instead of just the interest. You can choose your term, whether you would like to pay it off in 2 years or 5 years, and at the end of the term you can purchase the machine for a small fee. Leasing can allow you to build up your business and customer base without having a monstrous expense before youíve even begun.
The machine that is best suited for commercial purposes is a pump espresso machine, which means that they use a pump system to create the pressure needed to extract the espresso from the coffee grounds. The other option would be a lever machine, but these are labor intensive, generally only suitable for low volumes, and require some skill to operate. While they are a great and attractive option if your primary business is not that of espresso, they arenít suited to larger volumes of coffee sales. If espresso isnít your primary business though, a smaller pump machine would be perfectly suited to your needs.
Once youíve chosen the right machine for your business and if you have the funding, itís always best to purchase the equipment outright. This is because it will save you a lot of money in interest that would be paid on a loan or a lease. Financing your equipment for a loan is another option, and if you donít need to write off the entire payment for tax purposes, itís probably better than leasing, if you can get the loan. As lending has tightened up considerably in the last few years though, leasing the equipment can get you started in your business, especially if you prefer not to finance the equipment through a loan.
