Espresso coffees are at the core of every cafe in Australia and getting the kit right here is time well spent. We’ve been working closely with the lovely team at Synesso since ’07 and we’re super proud to have been their original Australian distributor. Hand built to order by a small team in Seattle, these espresso machines have been constructed with ease of use and engineering excellence firmly in mind.

While filter coffee is a relatively new phenomenon within the cafes of Australia, it’s rapidly being adopted for its ability to showcase unique coffees and a lighter, refreshing style. Brewed coffee is a drink style we’re pretty excited about but at the same time, we’re conscious that it needs to effectively integrate into the busy flow of an espresso-centric cafe. The folks at Marco have been building an innovative range of both hot water systems and brewing gear for decades. Their current line offers some great equipment, no matter how large or small your filter program is – from entry level hot water towers to cutting edge batch brew systems and a stack of other toys.
