But i'd be surprised if it was more than 16A per phase to be honest.

GU10 LEDs don't care about polarity, and i never seen a coffee machine i rated at better than 2 out of 10.

Some coffee machines have dual wiring options so you can choose depending on the power supply available. How big is the machine, how many coffee heads has it got?

il find out tomorrow ,marvo, could do with the manual but i know a similar one is on 32A breakers, wired in 4mm but maybe this is an oversight on the the installer

i just cant see a coffee machine pulling more than 20A on each phase..

I don't see it either. A 3 head machine would be 4-8Kw depending on the volume it's designed for and the elements, usually 3 of them, are generally 230v. I'd be surprised if it's more than 10A per phase on a 3-phase supply.
