Equipment that can help achieve your objectives

Jehn opened Small White Elephant in Peckham in 2014 on a tight budget and with a can-do attitude. This year she sold her decade-old, workhorse La Marzocco Linea and bought a barely used, ex-demo GB5 on United Baristas Marketplace.

Buying and selling the espresso machines through United Baristas Marketplace was easy

Jehn, proprietor, Small White Elephant

The new machine has supported Small White Elephant’s business objectives by helping to further lift coffee quality, reduce running and maintenance costs, and provides a better set up for their baristas.
