Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Gloucester-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 preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Gloucester-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that will provide you with an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to start your day, we have you covered.
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 benefits.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name suggests, 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 provided coffee dispensers to Gloucester and beyond for many years, we are aware of the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is important for our customers to consider 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 dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being able to provide a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. Unlike the pricey 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 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 Gloucester, 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 hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around Gloucester.
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 problems.
Can single-serve coffee machines be environmentally friendly?
Due to the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, pondering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Gloucester home or business is natural.
