Default Coffee bike. Electric / Gas Espresso Machine.

Hello ET!

Let me first say thank you for clicking on this post and taking time to read my first post! i appreciate that very much.

I have had this dream about becoming my own boss with a small street coffee business!. Now the time has arrived where i have saved up enough money too initiate the process. Due to the fact that i know nothing about electric what so ever come here, hoping that you could shed some light on my questions. Thank you - Thank you.

The end questions is: Should i go for a gas or an electric powered Machine. But what i am seeking is information about what a electric system requires. Battery and converter kit.

I have a Machine that uses 2400 watt that should be powered 7-10 hours day.

I am more or less number blind but I tried too calculate it on this website. But to be perfectly honest I have absolutely no idea of that i am doing. :-)

What i did was 2400 watt / 220v = 10,9 amps x 7 hours (on AGM) battery = [email protected] Which tells me what exactly?

I know better to ask if you could do my "home work" for me, but could someone please help me pointing me in the right direction on what kind of gear i should go for to operate this electric espresso machine?

Again Thank you for your time. Much appreciated
yours sincerely

Greetings ! it is so wonderful to meet you.

We especially like meeting people who join the forum but ignore all the rules that they must agree to in order to join !

Have you tried asking other street vendors what they use ?
