Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Salford-based business or workplace? Find out more about the different options available and find the one that is right for you.
Coffee machines are now found frequently within most workplaces. Whilst coffee is loved by all, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to Salford-based businesses and homes for the past 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 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 individual features.
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 range of hot drinks one capsule at a time. Having provided hot drinks dispensers to Salford 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 important 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 hot drinks dispenser options is the bean to cup coffee machine.
Despite being capable of serving a brilliant cup of coffee, the maintenance and training needed for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the expensive steam arm coffee machines often found 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 Salford, it is worth noting 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 hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around Salford.
These capsule-based hot drink machines 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 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, thinking about just how environmentally friendly using one is in your Salford home or business is natural.
