Are you looking for a coffee machine for your St Albans-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 requirements. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to St Albans-based businesses and homes over the past 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 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 are different from one another or their benefits.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name indicates, is filled 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 St Albans and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is vital for our customers to understand their options before committing to one.
Should I buy a bean-to-cup coffee machine?
The first, and most frequently 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 the vast majority of bean to cup models need to be disassembled and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and guarantee quality.
So, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in St Albans, 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 St Albans.
These capsule-based hot drink machines are used by many due to their versatility and their convenience, requiring a very small amount of maintenance and no training. Single-serve machines are also brilliant for providing a variety 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 hassle.
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 St Albans home or business is natural.
