Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Reading-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 preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a broad range of options to Reading-based businesses and homes for 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 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 benefits.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, 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 provided coffee dispensers to Reading and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why 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 regularly misunderstood, of these two popular coffee dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. 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 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 Reading, 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 Reading.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their broad range of drinks and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little 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 mean that it is simple to move between different drinks without any hassle.
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 Reading 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.
