This particular photo shows our nine hole drip bar with alternating ceramic and plastic drippers. The ones on the left have the white filters while the right are natural. With a 9bar one very good barista can brew the whole bar every 3 minutes; that’s 180 drinks per hour, at say $2.50 a cup – that’s $1350 max revenue with just 2 people and a drip bar! That’s right two people… while one can brew this alone, someone needs to take orders, money and give out drinks. Now imagine the second person on the CUSTOMER side of the bar, taking orders, talking about the coffee while serving up cups at a brisk pace. While manual one cup brew methods seem most appropriate for low volume high quality there is no reason you can’t execute high quality and high volume if done right.
