Coffee shop in Loughborough

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I'm opening a coffee shop in Loughborough and came to this forum to get some information in compact machines, good grinders and coffee distributers in the Midlands area. Not sure where to start, so much going on in this site! But I hope I find the things I am looking for.


I am a baker and provide catering and desserts to the Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire area... if your question is cake related, or what to eat with your cup of coffee I can answer!

Welcome to Coffee Forums UK Marta.


How may people per hour do you think you will serve?


This will decide the machine as a small compact machine might not be the right solution (but could be depending on the figures)


We have a number of forum sponsors who supply machines on leases and also a good number of roasters.


Click the banners at the top and bottom of each page and browse their sites for inspiration also.

Thanks Glenn,


I am already learning lots in this forum, great work you are doing!

The coffee shop is about 1.5 miles away from town, in a residential area, but one block from the university. There is lots of passing trade that we are hoping to attract. We think that about 10 coffees/hour max, and the place will sit about 15 people.


We are getting quotes for the following machines:

- Sanremo Zoe and Zoe compact

- La Spaziale S5 standard and compact

- Conti CC100 and X-One (two distributors already said they don't recommend them... any advise?)


Would you recommend any other?


I will check the sponsors, thanks!
