Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Peterborough-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 requirements. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Peterborough-based businesses and homes over 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 start your day, 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 obvious 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 range of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having supplied hot drinks dispensers to Peterborough and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that we believe it is crucial 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 coffee machine options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the costly 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 disassembled and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and ensure quality.
So, despite these machines brewing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Peterborough, 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 Peterborough.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, requiring no training and minimal 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 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 Peterborough home or business is natural.
At Nexus, we put an emphasis on being a sustainable supplier, offering sustainably packaged options whilst continuing to work with organisations such as Terracycle things that are more difficult to recycle.
