Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Lincoln-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 we all love coffee, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a broad range of options to Lincoln-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that can provide a variety of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, we can help.
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 very clear how they are different from one another or their benefits.
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 variety of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having provided coffee dispensers to Lincoln and beyond for many years, we are knowledgeable of the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is vital for our customers to understand their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most regularly 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 undervalued. Unlike the expensive 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 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 Lincoln, it is worth being aware 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 option that we frequently supply around Lincoln.
These capsule-based hot drink machines 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 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?
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 Lincoln home or business is natural.
At Nexus, we put an emphasis on being a sustainable supplier, offering sustainably packaged options whilst continuing our work with organisations such as Terracycle things that are more difficult to recycle.
