Thankfully all that has changed. With the evolution of the High Street big brands of Coffee Bars. The growth in Café Culture in the UK and the influence of the well known "American" food outlets. The publics perception of Coffee has changed and become more refined. In fact the UK is now officially a nation of coffee drinkers. To respond to this many independent businesses have moved towards more sophisticated methods of producing coffee to compete in the coffee market. From the traditional Italian style Espresso machine to the more complex Bean to Cup automatic coffee machines it is possible to produce a wide range of high quality espresso based coffees very simply.
The last types of machine to consider if offering a "real" coffee are the ones that have been familiar for many years. Filter type coffee made with Pre ground coffee. The type of machines depends upon volumes required. For example high volumes of coffee may be required for breakfast coffees in Hotels. Conference Centres would require high volumes for seminar coffee breaks. Also Function facilities Staff canteens and Theatres where a high demand for fresh coffee is required in a short space of time.
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.
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.
