The traditional scenario for needing to find an office coffee machine is the obvious one of working in an office full of co-workers. In this type of situation a one cup at a time machine could still work but might not be optimal. If a high percentage of the people in the office are drinking coffee it would be smart to invest in a maker with a large carafe. By brewing more coffee at a time you improve the efficiency of the process. Some machines also feature hot water dispensers for hot water on demand. This is a great feature as it allows people in the office who enjoy hot tea or instant soup to get hot water when they need it without disrupting the production of coffee.
Also with the pod technology there is no guessing or measuring of coffee for this type of maker. The pods of coffee are premeasured and all you have to do is place the pod in the machine and select the size cup you would like to have. The clean up is very easy as well. You just open the arm on the machine and discard the pod when the machine has finished its cycle. Another advantage of a single serve maker is the fact that the coffee is fresh every time. How many times have you gone back to the coffee pot to refill your cup and the coffee tastes stale or burnt? This happened all the time at my home. There were many days that I would feel guilty if I just had one cup then threw the rest down the drain because it tasted bad. Since you only brew coffee one cup at a time with this type of machine there is no more wasting coffee.
Next is what we call the coffee experience. Have enough time and feeling an expert barista? Brewing coffee beans on some machines can actually let you control the strength and taste of your coffee. Some even are so easy they are fully automatic. Pods have already flavors and you just have to pop them on some coffee machines some actually have crema if your machine has a frother. Its just a matter of how hands on you want to be on brewing your cup.
Also in large scale machines there are options of keeping the water heated for a longer time and the coffee is constantly brewed so that the supply is almost instantaneous when switched on. However in small scale machines not much importance is given to the Commercial Coffee Maker heating and efficiency factors. The speed is also not much to talk about and hence the supply is done a long time after the switch is turned on as the brewing and heating starts again and again for every new cup of coffee. But all said and done the lapse in time due to reheating is hardly a minute or two making the wait a breeze when compared to other machines.
