Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Derby-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines are becoming an increasingly common feature in most workplaces. Whilst we all love coffee, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Derby-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 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 are different from one another or their advantages.
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 supplied coffee dispensers to Derby and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is vital 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 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 commonly 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 disassembled 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 Derby, it is worth being aware 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 Derby.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their broad range of drinks and their convenience, requiring no training and minimal maintenance. Single-serve machines are also brilliant for providing a variety 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 problems.
Can single-serve coffee machines be environmentally friendly?
Due to the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, considering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Derby home or business is natural.
