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.
If you work in a small office a machine with a small carafe is sufficient. However you work in a very large office a machine that can fill a large coffee urn might be what is needed. Another feature that would be useful in this type of environment is a machine with a "time to clean" indicator coupled with a self clean feature. Often calcium buildup can occur in these machines and an indicator of when the machine needs to be cleaned is important. In a shared environment it is very likely that responsibilities like cleaning the coffee machine can be ignored due to the phenomenon known as the tragedy of the commons. By having a machine with simplified cleaning measures like an auto-clean you can avoid the pitfall of nobody taking responsibility to clean.
Other similar coffee machines use a tube in the center to pump the water to the top where it drops back down over the coffee grounds. They are coffee percolators and coffee urns and come in varying sizes. Urns have greater serving sizes that go as high as 60 cups for home use. Another coffee machine makes coffee by putting coffee in the bottom of a cylinder which is usually glass. A filter the size of the inside of the cylinder is then pressed down to the bottom producing the coffee. These coffee machines have names such as French press water press a press pot coffee press coffee plunger or cafetière.

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.
