Whether your showroom is large or small, it is very likely that there will be a sizeable portion of coffee fans in your midst. Choosing which hot drinks dispenser is right, however, for not only the preferences of your team, but for your business is crucial.
Whether this is about cutting costs, the amount of people your machine is required to serve or ease of maintenance, each business has unique requirements.
With over 50 years experience supplying coffee machines for your showroom, at Nexus we have extensive knowledge of the key factors that go into picking a hot drinks dispenser.
When it comes to hot drinks dispensers for showrooms, the two most common types of machines are bean to cup and single serve. When it comes to deciding which is best for your business there are three important factors that should be thought about– machine maintenance, hot drink selection, and whether you will charge.
Maintaining your showroom coffee machine
With bean to cup machines grinding the coffee internally, this means that they require taking apart 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 problem can, however, be navigated to some degree if your business is happy to train staff properly on how and when to clean the showroom coffee machine. As a result of their pod brewing method, purchasing a single serve machine can be another, more convenient, way to solve this problem.
The hot drink selection that suits your showroom
The second important element to bear in mind when picking between these two options is hot drink selection.
Despite coffee often being the preferred choice of hot drink in most workplaces, it is important to ensure that everyone’s preferences 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 ideal for showrooms coffee is not to everyone’s taste.
Charging for drinks
When it comes to selecting a hot drinks dispenser for your showroom, it is also crucial to consider the price 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 become very costly. 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 showrooms be environmentally friendly?
At Nexus, we are knowledgeable of the environmental issues that are associated with packaging. It is because of this that we work 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.
