Are you looking for a coffee machine for your London-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 we all love coffee, everyone has different preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a broad range of options to London-based businesses and homes for 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 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 very clear how they are different from one another or their advantages.
The crucial difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, 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 supplied hot drinks dispensers to London and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is vital for our customers to know about 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 able to serve a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the pricey steam arm coffee machines commonly 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, whilst these machines can provide some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in London, 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 option that we frequently supply around London.
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 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 means that it is easy to switch between different drinks without any difficulty.
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 London home or business is natural.
