Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Canterbury-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 coffee is loved by all, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Canterbury-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that will provide you with an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to start your day, we can help.
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 apparent how they are different from one another or their individual features.
The crucial 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 provided hot drinks dispensers to Canterbury and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is important for our customers to know about their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most regularly misunderstood, of these two popular coffee machine options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving a brilliant 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 Canterbury, it is worth noting that this requires regular maintenance.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, particularly such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular option that we frequently supply around Canterbury.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, requiring a very small amount of maintenance and no training. Single-serve machines are also brilliant for providing a broad selection 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?
As a result of the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, considering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Canterbury home or business is natural.
