This moderate volume super automatic self-service commercial espresso machine is great for medium sized businesses, or as a secondary machine in high-volume environments. The easy-to-use touch pad allows you to produce 21 different drinks, including iced lattes, while its integrated refrigerator system holds 1 gallon of fresh milk. With the choice of an on-board water supply option, the Concordia 1500s Elite can be moved from location to location to suit your needs, so it’s a great addition especially if you own multiple businesses. To ensure your 1500s Elite continues to produce great drinks, it comes with a 1-year warranty. You can also take advantage of Concordia’s customer care package that covers preventative maintenance, a year’s worth of cleaning supplies, telephone troubleshooting, and a 20% discount on the price of parts by calling our commercial sales line.
A 2-step programming menu makes selecting coffee options simple. The machine can be placed as a self-service machine, or an attendant can operate it. The touch pad screen is labeled with the names of the different drinks, so the customer always knows exactly what he or she is ordering. You also have the option to view how many drinks and of what kind have been ordered. Maintenance is simple, with included cleaning packets and supplies.
The Concordia 1500s Elite automatically dispenses hot water, hot milk, or cold milk, which is very convenient in places where people need cold milk for cereal, hot water for tea, or hot milk for cocoa or chai at any time. Programming these options is simple, so additional staff training wouldn’t be necessary. Because customers can use the machine, changing the pre-programmed cup size requires a call to Concordia’s customer service in order to prevent customers from changing the programming. It also means less training is necessary for your employees.
The straightforward milk system features an on-board refrigerator that allows you to keep up to a gallon of milk in the machine. The milk can be stored there 24 hours a day, although it does need to be removed when it’s time to clean the machine. The 1500s will froth and steam milk for you, or if you prefer cold milk, the machine can dispense that too.
There are many machines out there that can automatically produce hot milk and espresso drinks, but only a few are versatile enough to provide an iced drink. For an iced latte, fill a cup with ice, then press the “Iced Latte” button. The beverage will dispense directly into the cup of ice, chilled and ready to go.
For each shot of espresso, the 1500s grinds fresh beans and then immediately brews. The large capacity tinted bean hoppers allow you to easily monitor bean levels. For more drink options, a bypass doser lets you brew using pre-ground espresso beans to make decaf beverages.
Concordia offers service and repairs throughout the US, as well as in other countries through their distributors. All Concordia machines come with a 1-year parts and labor warranty covering manufacturing defects. The customer care package can be purchased additionally, and includes preventative maintenance such as cleaning the brew group, milk system, replacing the air filter, water filter, O rings, milk pickup tubes, and calibrating drink levels. It also includes a year of cleaning supplies to be shipped to your location, telephone troubleshooting, and a 20% discount from the list price on parts.
The 1500s must be plugged into a compatible 120-volt outlet, and professional installation is required. Professional installation ensures that the warranty will not be jeopardized by improper set up. Training is included with purchase of this machine. However, all questions on warranty information are directed to Concordia. You should also consult with your plumber or contractor, as well as your code enforcement officer on the following installation guidelines at the time of purchase.

If you would like to know a little about the many types of espresso machines we sell, this would be a good video to get you started. This video covers the machines we sell and based on your lifestyle, what you like to drink, and ease of use. It will give you an overview of different espresso machines and help you determine which one best suits to your needs.
I would watch the video and focus on a particular kind of machine—prosumer, semi-automatic, and super-automatic to decide which kind is ideal for you. Then, you can go and look at individual models to get a better idea of exactly what you want. Of course, if you narrow it down to a few espresso machines and are still undecided, give us a call and we would be glad to help!
