Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Lichfield-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 tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Lichfield-based businesses and homes over the past 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that can provide an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, 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 actually differ from one another or their individual features.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name suggests, 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 Lichfield and beyond for many years, we are aware of the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that 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 frequently misunderstood, of these two popular hot drinks 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 commonly found 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, whilst these machines can provide some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Lichfield, it is worth noting 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 Lichfield.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little maintenance. 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 mean that it is simple to move between different drinks without any hassle.
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, thinking about just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Lichfield home or business is natural.
