COMMERCIAL COFFEE MACHINE
My Friend's Single Pot Commercial Coffee Brewer and Grinder
The Bunn-O-Mattic® 120/240V single-pot commercial coffee machine (model# 35mechsf) is a coffee maker with large capacity for commercial purposes.
My friend, running a local take-out, is using it to brew and serve coffee for clients, and I'm often drinking delicious coffee there and occasionally operating the machine.

There are actually many different commercial coffee makers of this and similar series, equipped with a single pot like ours, or dual pot coffeemakers and more.
This machines are high-end and need plumbing. We are using it to brew many different high-quality coffees, including some of Starbucs, various Colombian coffee beans and more.
We like to diversify and test out different coffees and blends, sometimes dark roasts, other times medium roasts. It is quite interesting to observe customer feedback on the various types, blends and roasts.
We like the BUNN® commercial coffee maker that we operate already for about 2 years by now, brewing several pots on almost a daily basis and almost without any incidents.
You can see a photo on this page of the coffee brewer standing proudly next to the cappuccino maker. The coffee maker pours out dozens of cups on almost a daily basis.

The commercial grade machine is capable of brewing 5.1 to 11.4 gallons of coffee per hour. It has option to brew in batches of 1.5, 1, or 1-1.5 gallons at a time.
You can see here the upper part of the commercial coffee machine with its controls, volume selection to set the amount of coffee to brew and instruct the grinder on the amount of beans to grind; the on/warmer button; and the red handle to the left for dispensing hot water
The coffee machine is connected to a commercial BUNN coffee grinder (it's the precision burr grinder model G9hd or G9hdt, I have to double check) and it interacts with the grinder, instructing it on the amount of beans to grind according to the volume of coffee selected.
The bean hopper holds, I guess, some 9 pounds of coffee beans. The precision burrs allow for a consistent, commercial-quality grind. The large BUNN paper filters are inserted in the filter holder. They really fit in well and I haven't seen an incident of the filter collapsing and over-folding. The filter holds back the coffee grains from getting through into the coffee and allows a clear, clean cup of coffee.

When you message the grinder to go into action you can set the amount of coffee that you'll brew and the grinder adjusts to it grinding the required amount of coffee, but if you want a stronger coffee you can simply set it for a larger coffee volume so that the grinder unit grinds a larger amount of beans, and then when you brew you set it to a lower volume. This way it gets more coffee for a smaller volume of water resulting in a stronger cup.
The grinder is opened at the top to insert the coffee beans; the coffee bean hopper holds 9lb of coffeebeans
Included with the coffee maker we got a 1.5GPR portable server allowing to remove it and serve at another place. Also it has a hot water dispenser. The portable server has a vapor seal and spill protection mechanism, and the hot liquid dispenser, too, has a safety mechanism to deflect away from the hand.
The paper filters are inserted in the filter holder that slides in smoothly in the spot above the portable server
The coffee maker and the grinder were priced, I guess, at about $950 to $1,000 each. You can find the same or similar models. Shop around online. You can check out Amazon's site or other online coffee maker vendors.
Make sure to read the descriptions carefully to ensure that you get the model you need for your purpose and your understand its features and requirements.
