When deciding which professional espresso machine to purchase there are many factors to consider. In the competitive UK market, cafes are seeking the best commercial coffee machines that offer great performance, low running costs, and better energy efficiency than ever before.
Each of the Sanremo Energy Efficient Machines (SEEM) have been developed to be the kind of cafe or restaurant espresso machine that performs consistently whilst allowing baristas to make more sustainable coffee. Here's what makes our SEEM collection stand out among professional espresso machine brands.
In contrast, with the Opera 2, baristas simply press a button for a small quantity of water to dispense, to allow removal of used coffee grounds on the group head screens. This is beneficial in two ways; a large volume of water is not required as brew water is at the correct temperature, and the head being flushed would recover with a smaller element than that of the steam boiler, consuming less energy on the whole.
Manufacturers with an 'eco mode', which reduces boiler temperatures after periods of inactivity, argue that this is an effective means of reducing energy consumption. In practice, 'eco mode' means that when coffee is required, there can be a delay of a few minutes while the machine ramps back up to a suitable brewing temperature, which in many scenarios, is likely to frustrate customers. We believe that this mode is less likely to actually be used and is less likely to have a genuine impact.
Each of the espresso machines in our SEEM range has been designed with performance in mind. Learn more about the collection.
