Your brewing equipment is critical to ensuring a quality cup.
Depending on your choice of offerings, the equipment requirements and associated costs can vary widely. Water quality is also of critical importance; not only can unfiltered water introduce unintended flavors to your beverages, the minerals in the water can also cause damage to your equipment. At a minimum, you can expect to need the following:
Hot Coffee Equipment
When you purchase equipment, you are making an important investment in your beverage program. We provide equipment consulting to our customers and we are often able to leverage our relationships with suppliers and installers to negotiate the best possible pricing on your behalf. Our equipment solutions can fit businesses of all sizes — from portable pour-over machines to high volume satellite brewers, we handle it all. With customizable brew settings and simple user interfaces, we recommend top quality trusted brands and machines that will deliver a great cup every time.
Cold Brew Solutions
Making cold brew coffee and tea doesn’t have to be difficult, and brewing your own products allows for the biggest margins per cup (versus traditional on-tap or bottled solutions). Our in-house cold brew program can get you started right away with easy to use equipment and step-by-step instructions. Use our process along with our custom coffee and tea products made for cold brew and you’ll be serving delicious cost-effective products in no time.
A word about cheap or used equipment…
We generally recommend that you buy the best new equipment you can comfortably afford. Your customers will taste the difference if you buy cheap equipment. With used equipment, it is often hard to tell how well it has been maintained. While it is hard to ignore the upfront savings, consider that you run the risk of equipment failure or malfunction and may spend significantly more on labor and parts for repairs.
Equipment placement and Loan.
Not everyone wants to make the investment in their own equipment, and that is perfectly fine. Especially when you are opening a new shop, the costs can very quickly become overwhelming. Partner with BPM exclusively for your coffee needs and take advantage of our equipment loan program. Pay only a low one-time installation fee.
BPM will coordinate service of all equipment placed or purchased through us, and we offer service credit to our customers for equipment that you may have purchased on your own. We know the pain of lost sales due to equipment breakage or malfunction, so we always aim to have you back up and running as quickly as possible.
