How many different types of drink recipes are there?
There are over 300 flavors available to choose from, expertly crafted by our beverage specialists. While there are an extensive number of recipes available, each machine only has room for 14 BIBs so the number of recipes available at any given time will be based on the ingredients available on the machine. Typically that amounts to anywhere from 10 to 30 recipes with any particular combination of BIBs. We will consult with you to provide the best recipes suited for your restaurant and your cuisine, the number of flavors is overwhelming so we will definitely guide you through the process!

How many units can I deploy at a given location?
Most smaller restaurants opt to deploy one unit, but if you have a larger restaurant and want to offer a wider variety of flavors, we have deployed plenty of multi-unit restaurants as well. As mentioned above, each machine only has room for 14 BIBs, so if you wanted to offer a much wider variety of flavors, such as one unit specifically for coffee and teas, and another unit for fruit flavored drinks and blends, that's a very efficient way to offer an expansive variety of drinks to your customers!
