Have you ever bought a lovely little coffee shop on a community lot, and dreamt of selling cappuccinos, lattes and espressos to all the sims in your 'hood? But you arrived on the first day and took up your position as barrista, or assigned your employee to the machine, and nobody bought a single cup?

Oh the disappointment!

Maxis broke the Impresso Espress-o-Matic machine, and it is now fixed!

It now functions properly on an owned community lot, with either the business owner or an employee as barista. Sims will (continuously) purchase and consume caffeinated beverages, increasing their loyalty to you, your cafe will be full of jittering customers, and that Rank Ten rating will soon be yours!

This mod modifies BHAVs "Interaction - Order Coffee TEST" and "Espresso Stand - Customer Grab Cup" and will conflict with any mod which does the same.

If you do NOT use Simler90's business mod you will need to download "VA_EspressoMachinePatch".

If you DO use Simler90's business mod (, you will need to download "VA_Simler90_EspressoMachinePatch".

This mod is tuned at a value of 25 in relation to how many cups of coffee purchased it takes for each sim to gain a customer loyalty star (about 1 star every 4 cups). If this is too much or too little for you, you can easily change it in SimPE. Put your preferred tuning (1-100) in the Espresso Stand - Customer Grab Cup BHAV, node 10, altering the number in the operands pop-up wizard (literal = x where x is your value in decimal - 100 will give you a star every time).

I have tried to make this mod compatible with custom espresso machines, but since none of them function on owned community lots yet, this has not been tested.

I have also uploaded a default replacement coffee cup with a new design and some lovely coffee art!

All thanks and praise must go to @fway and Fireflowersims for holding my hand and leading me through the maze of BHAVs. I cannot thank you both enough, nor would this mod have been possible without you. Thank you also to Discord members who tested it, and to Exnem whose dessert cart code I copied.
