In this case, the institution needs to buy only professional machines, designed for high performance and reliability.

In this case, it is necessary to purchase coffee machines of famous international brands, for example, Italian company Lavazza. This manufacturer produces a wide range of devices, such as LEP line coffee machines, which can prepare such popular drinks as: Cappuccino, espresso or latte. The company produces only high-quality and reliable equipment and is the oldest supplier of coffee in European countries.

In Russian conditions it is not always possible to put a wood-burning stove due to a number of restrictions in the legislation on fire safety. The way out of the situation for domestic restaurateurs is the installation of modern gas and electric furnaces in the establishment. Such equipment complies with all the safety standards that are imposed on the catering industry. The leaders in the production of such equipment are the same Italians.
