Although we're not yet open, and we're a hybrid shop (retail/cafe) rather than straight-up cafe, we know coffee sales will account for a significant portion of our revenues.

"I like the verticals for use in restaurants where two or more wait staff may require use of the machine at the same time.For orderly work flow I prefer the modern horizontal design. But, the vertical machines really are beautiful. "
