Whether your golf club is large or small, it is highly likely that there will be a considerable portion of coffee fans in your midst. Deciding which machine to purchase, however, for not only for your team’s tastes, but for your business is of utmost importance.
Whether this is about trying to reduce outgoing costs, the amount of people your machine needs to serve or ease of maintenance, each business has unique requirements.
With over 50 years experience providing coffee machines for your golf club, at Nexus we know all of the key factors that are important when choosing a hot drinks dispenser.
When it comes to hot drinks machines for golf clubs, the two most popular types of machines are bean to cup and single serve. When it comes to deciding which is best for your company there are three crucial factors that should be considered– machine maintenance, hot drink selection, and whether you will charge.
Maintaining your golf club coffee machine
Bean to cup machines grind coffee internally, this means that they will need to be disassembled after a certain amount of use for cleaning. Whilst the time between cleaning will vary from model-to-model, in companies with larger teams, this can mean fairly frequent maintenance.
This issue can, however, be solved to a certain degree if your business is happy to train staff thoroughly on how and when to clean the golf club coffee machine. As a result of their capsule brewing method, opting to go with a single serve machine can be another, more convenient, way to solve this issue.
The hot drink selection that suits your golf club
The second important factor to bear in mind when choosing between these two options is hot drink selection.
Despite coffee often being the preferred choice of hot drink in most offices, it is important to ensure that all tastes are accounted for. At Nexus Drinks, our single serve Flavia and Klix models serve some of the UK’s most popular hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
These machines are great for golf clubs people have varied tastes.
Charging for drinks
When it comes to picking a coffee machine for your golf club, it is also important to be aware of the expense of hot drinks. In smaller teams, providing free hot drinks can be simple and cheap way to boost morale, but in larger teams this can quickly become very expensive. Our machines, such as the Flavia, can be fitted to charge for drinks if you think this would better suit your business.
Can using coffee machines in golf clubs be environmentally friendly?
At Nexus, we are knowledgeable of the environmental issues surrounding packaging. This is why we work closely with organisations such as Terracycle for packaging that is not as easy to recycle and also make sure that we supply sustainably packaged options everywhere possible.
