Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Durham-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 preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Durham-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 begin 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 range of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Durham and beyond for many years, we are knowledgeable of the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is vital for our customers to understand 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 coffee machine options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being able to serve a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the expensive 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, whilst these machines can provide some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Durham, 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 coffee machine that we frequently supply around Durham.
These capsule-based hot drink machines 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 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 allow for switching easily 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 Durham home or business is natural.
