NEW YORK, July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:Professional Espresso Machines in Italy
This report supplies information on the Professional Espresso Machines Italian market and its competitors: market trends, SWOT and key success factors analysis, major companies performance indicators (total turnover, sector specific turnover, market shares and export quotas), business prospects and trends.Scope Product technology:
This report will focus on companies that produce professional espresso coffee machines, including production and sales of replacement parts for these machines.Most espresso machines produced in Italy are of the "traditional" variety. These are machines with filter holders, which require manual operations to grind the coffee beans, load and insert the ground coffee, brew the drink and discard the waste.
Traditional espresso machines require a well-trained bartender to grind the coffee to an appropriate consistency, regulate dosage, tamp the ground coffee in the filter holder and brew the coffee for the right amount of time. However, technological innovations in the sector have made these skills less indispensable over time, as many of these processes are automated in semi-automatic and automatic professional machines.
Unlike completely manual (lever-driven) espresso machines, semi-automatic machines have volumetric pumps to automate the process of brewing the coffee by passing water through the filter and into the cup. However, semi-automatic machines still require a bartender to determine the brewing time. In automatic machines, the entire process from ground coffee to the cup is automated.
Super-automatic machines go further than automatic machines, as the entire espresso preparation process is automated (grinding, dosage, brewing and clean-up of waste coffee). These machines can even be programmed to brew single or double shots, and the strength of the coffee can be regulated. This type of coffee machine is becoming more and more popular abroad, where the espresso preparation process is not widely known, even among professional operators.
This report will not cover companies that produce manual and/or semi-automatic espresso machines to be used with coffee pods or capsules.FunctionEspresso machines are used to brew espresso coffee and other related hot drinks.Client categories
