Golden rules

COFFEEWORKS is an eight-step approach to help deliver all key aspects of a successful coffee product, ensuring operators have all the tools to serve “exceptional and consistent coffee, cup after cup”.

Its three golden rules to ensure a high coffee standard are keeping the product fresh, ensuring the milk is cold and fresh, and keeping the machine clean.

Areas covered include site set-up, great espresso, perfect milk, routines and efficiencies, and cleaning the equipment.

Focus on real life

Davies said: “We experience many businesses consistently making the same mistakes with their coffee, which often has a direct impact on their commercial success.

“This is often down to bad habits, inconsistent training, lack of ownership or a combination of those things.

“We created COFFEEWORKS, back in 2017, to make it simple for our customers to serve lots of great coffee, consistently. These new videos are educational, with a focus on real life, operational benefits to help operators achieve coffee excellence.”

The TV series includes top tips on ensuring the customer is always at the heart of a business; an overview of coffee machine misconceptions including comparing machines based on speed, consistency, cost and quality; five ways to identify common errors in coffee preparation; and choosing the right machine for your business.
