Common Questions About Fetco
Which Fetco coffee brewer is right for me?
In order to decide which Fetco coffee brewer best fits your needs, you first have to decide how much coffee your business plans on producing during each daypart. For operations where coffee is served in high volumes or is a staple on the menu, you should look at options capable of producing larger batches. On the other hand, if coffee is not one of your featured menu items, a smaller unit should be able to help your servers ensure your guests at least have coffee when it is requested.
Fetco coffee brewers are categorized by their per-hour brewing capacities, which range from about 3.9 gallons per hour on the low end to 36 gallons per hour on the high end. These brewers are also available in single and twin warmer options.
Something else you should keep in mind when looking to purchase a Fetco coffee brewer is how much space you have available. Fetco brewers may be 19 inches to 78.5 inches tall and range in width from 7.63 inches to 36 inches.
All Fetco brewers also have a hot water faucet built into the product. Having one of these built into your coffee brewer will provide your business and guests with the capability to make other options such as hot chocolate, tea, and oatmeal.
Does my brewer require a specific Fetco coffee filter?
While Fetco coffee brewers do not require you to use a Fetco coffee filter, Fetco does offer a line of paper coffee filters. With six different filter sizes, you are sure to find one that is right for your specific brewer; even if you don't have a Fetco brewer, Fetco coffee filters are compatible with other vendors' products, depending on size. Be sure to look at the product descriptions of both your brewer and the filter you plan on buying to ensure correct sizing.
How can I keep my coffee warm after it has been brewed?
Keeping coffee warm after it has been brewed is essential for any restaurant, as your customers expect their hot coffee to be hot. To solve this problem, Fetco offers coffee warmers for glass decanters. Fetco's warmers are designed with a proprietary temperature limiting system that enables them to resist overheating while maintaining the optimal serving temperature.
What other products does Fetco offer?
Fetco offers a line of frozen drink machines and a line of iced tea brewers. The frozen drink machines are sold with one, two, or three 3.2-gallon hoppers, and the iced tea brewers are designed to hold one or two 3.5-gallon dispensers, so operators can choose the machine size that will best meet their production demands.
