Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Lancaster-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines have become commonplace in most workplaces. Whilst coffee is loved by all, everyone has different requirements. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a broad range of options to Lancaster-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that can provide an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to start your day, we can help.
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 actually differ from one another or their advantages.
The crucial 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 hot drinks dispensers to Lancaster and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is crucial 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 hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the costly 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 the vast majority of bean to cup models need to be taken apart and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and guarantee quality.
So, despite these machines brewing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Lancaster, it is worth being knowledgeable that this requires regular maintenance.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, especially such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular coffee machine that we frequently supply around Lancaster.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their wide range of options 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 allow for switching easily 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, considering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Lancaster home or business is natural.
