Electrical

Standard 13 amp plug socket needed for a 1 group or a two group coffee machine.

20amp socket (supplied by Arden Coffee) for 2 or 3 group fast boil machine. For a fast boil 2 group for a busy site, will need to be on a B20 in the main consumer unit board and the machine machine needs to be on its own circuit.

Water Supply

Water supply terminating in a standard washing machine isolation valve

Waste

1.25” or 1.5” with trap and 9” upstand directly below machine location. As an alternative, waste can be run into a bucket, which must be emptied regularly.

Work surface

Any work surface and sub structure strong enough to sustain the weight (as above), and sturdy enough not to move when group operation is taking place.
75mm diameter hole to be drilled centrally beneath coffee machine location for waste and water feed (also for power if fed from under the counter).

Our technicians are only authorised to drill access holes through timber worktops.
Please note: We do not drill access holes through the following work surfaces or cabinet structures:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Ceramics
  • Granite, Stone, Marble
  • Glass Structures
  • Corian

No space under work surface?

Is there a fridge or wine fridge in the way? Arden coffee has a special fitting kit so we can still fit the machine you like anywhere you like without going under the work surface!

No Plumbing in the building?

With our fast flow pump system you don’t need mains plumbing! Have any machine anywhere you like.

Photo of a Working Machine

A tyipcal two group dual steam is approximently 750mm wide, but you still need space to work the steam arms and make the drink….

You will need 1550mm in total, meaning 400mm each side to make the drink.

As you can see from the photo above, amount of room needed for two persons to operate an espresso machine at the same time. As you can see how both people operating the steam arms have a place to make the drink after they have foamed the milk. The left has space in front of the knock out box and the on the right has in front of the grinder.

Puting an espresso machine up to a wall or say a fridge at the steam arm side will dramaticlly effect how many people can use the machine at one time. Why have a two steam arm mahine and two group heads to poor 4 coffees when only one person can drive the coffee machine?

As you can see from the photo above, amount of room needed for two persons to operate an espresso machine at the same time. Looking at the photo also you can see how both people operating the steamer have a place to make the drink after they have foamed the milk. The Girl on the left has space in front of the knock out box and the girl on the left has in front of the grinder.
