Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Ely-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 requirements. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a broad range of options to Ely-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that can provide a variety 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 very clear how they actually differ from one another or their individual features.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, is filled with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a variety of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having provided hot drinks dispensers to Ely 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 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 capable of serving an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. 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 most of bean to cup models need to be disassembled 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 Ely, it is worth being aware that this is only possible if looked after.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, especially such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular option that we frequently supply around Ely.
These capsule-based hot drink machines are used by many due to their broad range of drinks 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 hassle.
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 Ely home or business is natural.
