One of the popular coffee machines used today is a pod machine or pod brewer. These machines use pods or K-Cups which already have the grounds in a container. The machine creates very hot water or steam. When the pod or K-Cup is inserted into the machine it creates a hole for the pressurized water or steam to go through. Some espresso machines which were just mentioned above also have the ability to use pods or K-Cups.
There is a separate Grinder which usually sits on top of a Knockout Drawer which is used for the spent coffee pucks. Although most Traditional Espresso Machines have automatic dosing these days the coffee making process is by hand (Artisan). The coffee shot; single or double is prepared using the machine. The milk is foamed using the machine Steam Wand. The coffee is then put together to make any one of the most popular coffees. Cappuccino Latte Mocha and Macchiato etc. All of the preparation adds to the "Theatre" of the Coffee Culture. Customers have a higher perception of an "Artisan Coffee" and are willing to pay more. Training is required to ensure quality and consistency.
It is a good idea to start a coffee shop business or have a coffee machine as an extra add on in the store that you own or are planning to set up. Having coffee machines allow your customers to quench their thirst and cravings right at your store while searching or browsing for their much needed accessories. Thus having a coffee machine in your business set up can never be a bad idea. But for the idea to materialize it is extremely essential for you to figure out a good coffee machine for yourself. The specifications of the machine must compliment the requirement that you have with respect to the machine. With different varieties of coffee machines available both in large scale and small scale versions it is very essential to make your choice with all the due planning as a calculated choice is definitely much better than an unheralded guess on any given day.
Bean to cup coffee machines are relatively recent additions to the coffee machine market. The principle is to be able to duplicate more or less the range of espresso based coffees that are normally handmade on an espresso machine. All at the "Touch of a Button". As previously explained when using an espresso machine a Barista would make coffees by hand. Although not a long process it doesnt allow the Barista to prepare other food orders for example. In fast food outlets where staff do not have time to hand make a coffee or where there is limited staff training a bean to cup machine is the ideal solution. Bean to Cup machines are found in many self-serve environments such as Cafeterias Company Canteens. Bean to Cup machines are becoming popular in Offices.
