There are different types of espresso machines that are available today. While venturing towards purchasing an espresso machine of choice the important thing is to decide upon is the extent of control that one wishes to exert over the coffee brewing process. Often the extent of control over the brewing process that is offered involving superior functionalities becomes directly proportional to the difficulty in operating i.e. increase in operational complexity. The differences in the various espresso machines of the day ought to be understood in order to make a worthy purchasing choice.
There are several different kinds of single serve coffee machines on the market but I have a Keurig coffee machine. For the Keurigs coffee machines there are over 250 different kinds of coffee to choose from. They call their pod a K-cup. K-cups come in the caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions as well. So you are essentially able to brew a gourmet-style cup of coffee in the comfort of your own home at any time of the day.
The software in a Bean to Cup machine allows for various types of drinks to be produced. These vary depending on the type of machine chosen. Generally commercial Bean to Cup machines have between 8 and 12 drink selections. Basic and domestic bean to cup machines have a separate steam arm or foamer which means that milk for Cappuccinos and Lattes have to be foamed separately. These machines are ideal for domestic use or small offices were less than twenty drinks are required in any one day. Please be aware that if using a machine in a business environment it should have a commercial warranty.
There have been many changes in the UKs interest in coffee in the last 10 - 15 years. The need for real espresso based coffees has increased dramatically. Instant coffee out a tin or at best "Pour and Serve" filter coffee machines were the main way of providing coffee during the past thirty years. I can speak from past experiences when selling coffee machines that prepare "real bean" espresso based coffees to businesses in the food and drink sector. These days those types of business wouldnt consider anything less than a traditional Espresso machine or Bean to Cup machine. Back then the British public was really only used to "instant" type coffee and Espresso was something foreign. Businesses didnt see the need to go "foreign."
