Coffee has always been a popular drink. Watch any old movie, from Western to Film Noir and it will be clear that coffee has been around longer than you'd expect. There must be something about it that has made it such a lasting and popular drink. Similarly, tea has been around as long or longer than coffee, though not always as popular in the Americas. Tea is so popular in Asia that it has taken on a religious significance in countries like Japan, where tea ceremonies can be part of reaching for zen.
With the addition of companies like Starbucks to more popular culture, specialty coffee drinks have also become quite popular and even expected. While generic diners around the country might not be expected to serve complicated coffee drinks, coffee shops certainly are. In that case, adding various drink machines to your collection of restaurant equipment is sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Adding specialty coffee drinks to your dessert menu or just selling them in addition to your food could be the perfect and unique approach that sets your restaurant apart from the crowd. While basic coffee will still sell, it won't excite your customers and have them coming back for more. Adding an espresso machine will allow you to expand your options with dozens of extra drink choices. A cappuccino machine on top of that will allow the steamed milk to completely change the way your customers' views coffee.
You don't have to stop there. Use the steamed milk to create rich hot chocolate for both children and adults. Add teas to your menu to widen your appeal. Seasonal beverages like hot apple cider or iced coffees can also make a big impact on those dining at your establishment.
Add coffees to your alcoholic drink menu by incorporating certain liquors with the coffee creation process. The hot alcoholic beverages are sure to be a hit, whether you use almond liquor, Kahlua, or whiskey.
Adding hot drink equipment may just be the sure fire hit you need to turn your restaurant from eatery to experience. Add it to your collection of restaurant equipment today.
