Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Carlisle-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 coffee is loved by all, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Carlisle-based businesses and homes over 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 get your day started, 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 obvious how they actually differ from one another or their benefits.
The crucial difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, is loaded 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 Carlisle and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is crucial for our customers to understand 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 able to provide a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the pricey steam arm coffee machines commonly found 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 brewing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Carlisle, it is worth being knowledgeable 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 Carlisle.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their versatility 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?
As a result of the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, thinking about just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Carlisle home or business is natural.
