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 situation you might find yourself in when buying a office coffee machine is working from home. Working remotely from home or running a home business is becoming more common. The fact is that even in this type of environment a caffeine pick-me-up might still be an absolute necessity. If this is the case you can choose an office coffee machine that only makes a single cup of coffee at a time. By brewing one cup at a time there is an advantage over traditional machines that feature a large carafe. A one cup coffee maker often only takes a minute or two to brew a cup. This lets you get your coffee quicker and you dont have to deal with a large amount of coffee sitting around and growing stale. The freshness of coffee is directly related to its taste so one cup machines have an advantage in this situation. The coffee will always be hot and fresh when you brew it one cup at a time.
