Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Portsmouth-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 coffee is loved by all, everyone has different preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Portsmouth-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 begin 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 advantages.
The crucial difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name indicates, 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 provided hot drinks dispensers to Portsmouth 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 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 able to serve an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the expensive 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 most of bean to cup models need to be taken apart and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and ensure quality.
So, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Portsmouth, it is worth being knowledgeable 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 hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around Portsmouth.
These capsule-based hot drink machines are used by many due to their broad range of drinks and their convenience, requiring no training and minimal maintenance. Single-serve machines are also brilliant for providing a broad selection 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 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 Portsmouth home or business is natural.
