Are you looking for a coffee machine for your Stoke-on-Trent-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 we all love coffee, everyone has different tastes. This is why, at Nexus, we have supplied a wide range of options to Stoke-on-Trent-based businesses and homes over the last 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that will provide you with an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, 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 apparent how they are different from one another or their advantages.
The crucial difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name might suggest, is filled 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 supplied coffee dispensers to Stoke-on-Trent and beyond for many years, we are knowledgeable of the myths that surround coffee machines.
This is why we believe it is important for our customers to consider 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 able to serve an incredible cup of coffee, the maintenance and training required for bean to cup machines is often undervalued. 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 most of bean to cup models need to be disassembled and cleaned properly to remove used coffee grounds and guarantee quality.
So, despite these machines brewing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in Stoke-on-Trent, it is worth being aware that this is only possible if looked after.
Should I buy a single-serve coffee machine?
Single-serve machines, especially such as our bestselling Flavia coffee machines, are the other popular option that we frequently supply around Stoke-on-Trent.
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 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 Stoke-on-Trent home or business is natural.
