Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Cambridge-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines have become commonplace in 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 Cambridge-based businesses and homes over the last 25 years.
Whether you are searching 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 can help.
What coffee machine options are there?
Whilst you may be relatively familiar with the coffee machine terms ‘single-serve’ and ‘bean to cup’, it is often not apparent 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 loaded with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a range of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Cambridge and beyond for many years, we are knowledgeable of the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is important for our customers to consider their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most often misunderstood, of these two popular hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. Unlike the pricey steam arm coffee machines frequently used in cafés which use removable group heads for brewing ground coffee, bean to cup machines brew internally. This means that most of bean to cup models need to be taken apart and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and ensure quality.
So, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Cambridge, it is worth being knowledgeable that this is only possible if looked after.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, particularly such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular coffee machine that we frequently supply around Cambridge.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their wide range of options and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little maintenance. Single-serve machines are also great at providing a broad selection of the UK’s favourite hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
Their single-use brewing method mean that it is simple to move 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, pondering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Cambridge home or business is natural.
