Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Hereford-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines are now found frequently within 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 Hereford-based businesses and homes for 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 start your day, we have you covered.
What coffee machine options are there?
Whilst you may be relatively familiar with 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 indicates, is loaded with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a variety of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Hereford and beyond for many years, we are aware of the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is vital 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 hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the expensive steam arm coffee machines frequently 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 guarantee quality.
So, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Hereford, it is worth noting 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 hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around Hereford.
These capsule-based hot drink machines are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, requiring a very small amount of maintenance and no training. Single-serve machines are also great at providing a wide range of the UK’s favourite hot drinks brands, such as Mars, Kenco, and Yorkshire Tea.
Their single-use brewing method means that it is easy to switch between different drinks without any hassle.
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 Hereford home or business is natural.
