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.
This generally will not be available for low volume domestic machines. If you are considering a Bean to Cup machine for your business it should be noted that they are manufactured to different volume categories. Machines have to be matched to daily cups/day requirements/estimates drink size and how quickly they will be needed. All Manufacturers cups/day specifications are based upon an 8oz serving with numbers spread evenly throughout the day. Typically low volume bean to cup can produce up to 50 coffees per day. Medium volume machines range between 100 and 150 a day. Medium to High volume would be 150 - 200 a day.
While selecting the best machine adequate importance must be given to the durability and life time of the machine. The lifetime of any coffee brewing machine depends upon the life of the heating filament that forms an integral part of any coffee machine. The heating filament is prone to wear and tear manufacturing defects and other malfunctions that may at times result in grave problems like shocks and short circuits causing destruction of the apparatus. Thus it is very essential to undergo a prior check up and detailed analysis of the heating filament and proper examination of its warranty before zeroing in on the product.
Not all of us had been blessed with a large kitchen space. You might also want to consider the size and the weight of the machine you want to purchase. Its where you can put in and out of the cupboard with ease if you want to store it. Or a heavier sturdier machine can suffice if you want to display and boast it on your kitchen top. If you like to entertain other people in your house you may in addition consider the tank size of your machine also the frequency of use of your coffee machine.
