New Espresso Machines
Fri, 11/6/09 11:52 AM
Hey guys, Im about to pick up some new espresso machines from Astra Manufacturing. Im trying to pickup a group of them to get the best price. If the people I've already got on board follow through, that gives me the buying power of 6 machines so I'll be able to get them for a great price (looking like about 27% off list which is considered 7% off wholesale since they usually take 20% off if you buy multiples for resale). Astra makes some of the best machines out there & for a good price. Plus they're made in america & over the years when Ive had to do work to my machines, I was able to fix them easily & locally sometimes with parts from the hardware store! Now the times Ive had to fix them where my fault because I am mobile & very hard on machines. My Astra has probably fallen off the cart in the trailer at least 5 times! And I've left it stored in the trailer over winter without draining it & freezing the pump. Anyhow, they're great machines. If anyone on the forum is thinking about adding an espresso machine to their restaurant, let me know & I'll get you a price worked up. Again, Im just a coffee shop thats picking up some new machines & trying to get the best possible price by buying in bulk, you'll get the same.
