Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Northampton-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 preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Northampton-based businesses and homes over the last 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that can provide a variety 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 obvious how they actually differ from one another or their individual features.
The crucial 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 broad selection of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Northampton 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 crucial 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 frequently misunderstood, of these two popular coffee machine options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being able to serve a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. Unlike the pricey steam arm coffee machines frequently 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 Northampton, it is worth being knowledgeable that this is only possible if looked after.
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 Northampton.
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 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 allow for switching easily between different drinks without any problems.
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 Northampton home or business is natural.
