Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Birmingham-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines are now found frequently within most workplaces. Whilst we all love coffee, everyone has different preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Birmingham-based businesses and homes over the past 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that can provide an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, we have you covered.
What coffee machine options are there?
Whilst you may have heard the coffee machine terms ‘single-serve’ and ‘bean to cup’, it is often not very clear how they actually differ from one another or their advantages.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name indicates, is filled with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a broad selection of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied coffee dispensers to Birmingham and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is crucial for our customers to consider their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most frequently misunderstood, of these two popular hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being able to provide an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the costly steam arm coffee machines often found in cafés which use removable group heads for brewing ground coffee, bean to cup machines brew internally. This means that the vast majority of bean to cup models need to be taken apart and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and guarantee quality.
So, despite these machines brewing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Birmingham, it is worth being knowledgeable that this is only possible if looked after.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, especially such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around Birmingham.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their wide range of options and their convenience, requiring no training and minimal maintenance. Single-serve machines are also great at providing a wide range of the UK’s favourite hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
Their single-use brewing method means that it is easy to switch between different drinks without any difficulty.
Can single-serve coffee machines be environmentally friendly?
Due to the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, thinking about just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Birmingham home or business is natural.
