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!

An easy to use touch pad with a digital screen and photographs of 5 different espresso drinks makes choosing a beverage a simple and pleasant task for your customer. The Concordia 1500i super automatic is perfect for moderate volume locations or as a backup to high volume locations, and offers a menu of 21 different drinks, including iced lattes. The on-board refrigeration system holds a gallon of milk for easy access and storage. Optional on-board water and waste bins make the 1500i espresso machine great for transport.
The 1500i has a 2-step ordering process for users. With the help of a digital screen, the customer begins with the option of customizations such as large drink, decaf, or extra espresso shot. Then, the customer chooses a drink from “latte,” “cappuccino,” “americano,” “espresso,” or “iced latte.” The drink is dispensed directly into the waiting cup – in the case of an iced latte, the cup must be filled with ice first. The Concordia 1500i can also dispense hot water, steamed milk, or cold milk, which is useful in business settings where people order tea, steamers, or cereal.
A Range of Drink Options
Moderate-volume locations mean that you’ll have diverse customers looking for different drink options. This is why the Concordia 1500i does more than dispenses lattes, cappuccinos, americanos, espressos, or iced lattes – it also provides steamed milk, cold milk, or hot water for teas, hot cocoa, and hot or cold cereal.
Integrated Milk System
The convenient on-board refrigerator, located directly behind the machine’s front panel, holds 1 gallon of milk. You can leave the milk in it 24 hours a day – just remove it during your 10-minute daily cleaning routine. This makes the machine easy to transport, especially if you choose the optional on-board water and waste bins.
The best way to distinguish yourself from your competitors is to offer something that they can’t. The Concordia 1500i has a unique menu that includes iced lattes, which few machines provide. To brew an iced latte, fill a cup with ice and place it under the dispenser. Press the “iced latte” button, and the beverage is dispensed.
If a customer prefers decaf, simply pour pre-ground coffee into the bypass doser and press the “decaf” button. The machine will then brew using the coffee in the doser rather than the beans stored in the bean hopper.
- When no drinks are being made, the machine automatically performs a self-rinse cycle to keep beverages tasting fresh. This cuts down on the amount of maintenance needed.
- The simple daily cleaning process takes only about 10 minutes a day, and if the machine goes 24 hours without being cleaned, a warning will show for 2 hours, although the machine will still brew. After those 2 hours have passed, the machine will not produce any more drinks until the cleaning cycle is run, thus ensuring the safety and quality of your beverages.
- Cleaning the milk system regularly prevents clogging, and ensures your milk stays fresh.
