Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Ipswich-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 coffee is loved by all, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Ipswich-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 begin 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 individual features.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name indicates, is filled with beans which are then ground and brewed, whilst single-serve machines provide a range of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having provided hot drinks dispensers to Ipswich 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 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 needed for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. Unlike the expensive steam arm coffee machines often used 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 taken apart 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 Ipswich, it is worth being aware 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 coffee machine that we frequently supply around Ipswich.
These capsule-based hot drink machines are used by many due to their broad range of drinks and their convenience, requiring a very small amount of maintenance and no training. Single-serve machines are also brilliant for 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 difficulty.
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, considering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Ipswich home or business is natural.
At Nexus, we put an emphasis on being a sustainable supplier, offering sustainably packaged options whilst continuing to work with businesses such as Terracycle things that are more difficult to recycle.
