Engineering Advice

Slowly but surely, the past months have begun to see more positive signs that we are closer to seeing an end of lockdown restrictions. With Government approved dates for re-openings and outdoor hospitality service already being given a go ahead, we are beginning to see a bit of hope for the future and the upcoming summer months.

Businesses re-opening as they are at present and with lesser restrictions expected to be in place for the summer- we wish to support all businesses who work closely with us and ensure that re-opening can be as stress free and enjoyable as possible.

Our Bailies Engineers have throughout the last year offered services that would allow for businesses to create pop-up stands for takeaway and retail trade as well as offering servicing of machines in preparation for re-opening. Now that stay-at-home mandates are being lifted and vaccine roll out is successfully being administered, we feel comfortable to offer these services once again to help local businesses get back on their feet.

We must still encourage proper practise during this time in order to still protect those most vulnerable in our society as well as those not vaccinated, to further support our NHS and frontline workers, along with our own staff members.

Before you head straight back in, the engineering team have put together a handy quick step-by-step guide for turning your machine back on: 

  1. Ensure water supply is on at your store.

  2. Switch on machine.

  3. Press "constant run" on all groups for 60 seconds.

  4. Fully heat coffee machine and give it time to warm up.

  5. Initiate hot water dispense and draw 10 litres from the machine. 

  6. Open steam valves for 30 seconds.

  7. Test hot water dispensed for both clarity and taste.

  8. Dial in espresso using fresh beans and extract paying attention to extraction time and volume.

For those who may need assistance, have questions or queries, our Engineers at Bailies are available to guide you through proper bespoke machine maintenance to ensure that when business gets back to normal- your machinery and equipment will be good as new.

Lets be mindful, get vaccinated and soon be able to enjoy some brews together once again.
