Bean to cup or instant coffee machine?
The first choice for many people is whether to go for a bean to cup coffee machine or an instant coffee machines.
Bean to cup machines combine a coffee grinder with a brewer and automatically grind coffee beans, deposit the perfect dose into the brewer and then make the chosen cup of coffee - all at the touch of a button.
Bean to cup machines are one of the most popular options for offices as they quickly and consistently deliver great tasting coffee all at the touch of a button. There’s also a great range to choose from, so whether your machine will only need to produce a few cups of coffee a day to one that will need to make a few hundred cups there will almost certainly be the right model to meet your requirements. Many machines are now also capable of producing milk-based coffee drinks, such as lattes and cappuccinos, as well as other drinks altogether like fresh leaf tea and hot chocolate.
Instant coffee machines can be a great alternative to a bean to cup machine - they provide coffee quickly and simply and almost always offer a range of different coffee drinks, teas and hot chocolates. They are typically great value for money and are easy to stock up, clean and maintain.
Other considerations include whether you are looking for a table-top machine or a floor standing option. Space is obviously a key consideration when it comes to a floor standing machine or a more compact table-top alternative. Both can offer great tasting drinks with floor standing models often offering a larger capacity water tank meaning it can produce more drinks in one go before it needs to be refilled.
Servicing and maintenance options
Put simply, properly servicing and maintaining your coffee machine will ensure it continues to provide great tasting drinks and keep it free of any unpleasant and potentially harmful toxins for years and years. Many machines these days come with automatic cleaning programmes to take care of the majority of day-to-day cleaning requirements.
Each machine is different and comes with manufacturer guidance on servicing intervals and changing filters. For a worry and hassle free experience, you may want to consider one of our servicing packages and we’ll take care of all servicing requirements for one fixed price.
