Are you looking for a coffee machine for your York-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 coffee is loved by all, everyone has different preferences. This is why, at Nexus, we have offered a wide range of options to York-based businesses and homes for the past 25 years.
Whether you are searching for a machine that can provide an extensive selection of hot drinks or just a quick cup of quality coffee to get your day started, 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 benefits.
The key difference in each machine’s function is that bean to cup, as the name suggests, 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 York and beyond for many years, we understand the myths that surround coffee machines.
It is because of this that 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 often 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 required for bean to cup machines is often underestimated. Unlike the costly steam arm coffee machines frequently 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, despite these machines providing some of the best cups of coffee for homes and workplaces in York, 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 hot drinks dispenser that we frequently supply around York.
These capsule-based hot drink dispensers are used by many due to their wide range of options and their convenience, not requiring any training and very little maintenance. Single-serve machines are also great at 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 problems.
Can single-serve coffee machines be environmentally friendly?
As a result of the waste often being associated with coffee machines, such as filters and refills, pondering just how environmentally friendly using one is in your York home or business is natural.
