Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Norwich-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 we all love coffee, everyone has different requirements. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Norwich-based businesses and homes over the last 25 years.
Whether you are looking for a machine that will provide you with 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 are different from one another or their advantages.
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 Norwich and beyond for many years, we are knowledgeable of the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is vital for our customers to consider 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 coffee dispenser 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 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 disassembled 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 Norwich, it is worth noting 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 Norwich.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their wide range of options and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little maintenance. Single-serve machines are also great at providing a broad selection 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, thinking about just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Norwich 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.
